The HP Touchsmart IQ500 is a new experience in computing and home entertainment. Instead of dragging your mouse around, you can directly interact with the computer screen.

You only need to plug in one power cable, leaving your desktop nice and tidy and making it look more like a television than a computer. You do still have the option to use a regular mouse and keyboard if you find it easier.

Features include:

- 22 inch screen
- Built-in webcam and microphone
- Built-in TV tuner - watch, pause and record your favorite programs
- Wirelees LAN and integrated bluetooth
- Slot-loading SuperMulti DVD-R/RW burner
- Remote control

According to Edward Baig at USAToday, who took it for a test drive, the full potential of this computer will not be usable until the Windows 7 operating system is released. However this is still one amazing machine for those who are looking for a computer and home entertainment system rolled into one.
