The HP TouchSmart 610 is a good touchscreen all-in-one PC with solid entertainment features. While 27-inch models like the gdgt Must-have Dell XPS One 27 tend to get more attention, a 23-inch model like the TouchSmart 610 can be more affordable, and can fit in smaller spots. The TouchSmart 610 performs well, its 1080p display is very sharp, and it includes both an HD tuner and Blu-ray player, along with two HDMI ports, allowing you to easily use it as a display with a cable box, gaming console or other devices.

All in all, if you're inclined to stick to a budget, think you'd actually use the touchscreen, or are just a Windows kind of person, you'd be hard-pressed to find something with a better value proposition -- unless it's a slimmer, more modern profile you're after.

Thanks to some amazing innovations, the quad-core-equipped HP TouchSmart 610-1065qd all-in-one desktop moves the touch screen from the novelty phase to the seriously usable phase, and that's worth full marks in my book.

For now, HP will have to settle for merely being excellent. Their innovations shine through in the TouchSmart, which, as always, is a bundle of fun to use and its latest iteration, the 610, is unreservedly recommended. Just, HP...work on the software some more. Please?

Thanks to its ability to fold down to 30 degrees, here we finally have an all-in-one PC on which touch makes sense, and thanks to its gorgeous 23" IPS display it's a true pleasure to use from any angle. HP also throws in a whole raft of connectivity on top of powerful specifications.
