hp touchsmart 610 HP launches two TouchSmart AIO systems with reclining touch screens

Touch screen PCs in general have one problem in common, the display isn't position in an ergonomic location to take advantage of the touch screen, but HP seems to have figured out a way around this with its new TouchSmart 610 and 9300 Elite. The 610 is the consumer model, while the 9300 Elite is the business model. Both feature an all-in-one PC design and look rather slick, but it's the stand that's the real selling point of both systems.

The 23-inch 1920×1080 touch screen on both systems can be reclined by up to 60 degrees which makes the bottom of the screen touch the desk and allowing for a much more ergonomic usage scenario than in the case of every other all-in-one system with a touch screen that we've seen to date. The screen can also be swiveled around 180 degrees for those that need a portrait mode type display for work.

The TouchSmart 610 starts at US$899 and is set to start shipping in the US on the 9 February while the TouchSmart 9300 won't be available until May for a yet undisclosed price.
