Updates won't install

We've had it for several months. Our big problem is that the HP updates at the HP site all crash with the same error when you try to install them. Spent several hours on chat with them and they finally gave up and told be to reinstall the operating system even though I explained that this was an out of the box problem and not the result of updates. Window updates install fine. So due to poor support I cannot recommend any HP computer.

I feel like such a sucker

I'm going crazy with this machine 2 system recoveries and 2 visits to the geek sqaud, and hours on the phone with HP. I have experienced every problem that most of these reviewers talked about. Very Very UNHAPPY!

Everything at your fingertips

After 6 months of using the Touchsmart IQ504, I have no regrets of buying it. It does have it's pros and cons, like almost everything does, but for me the pros have far outweighed the cons.

It works well in so many places where a normal desktop just won't fit. It has a much larger screen than a laptop which makes it great for watching movies and viewing pictures, etc. Combined with the touchscreen capability, it is also the absolute best computer for using in the kitchen while cooking (using the touchscreen for browsing the internet for recipes is a lot easier than worrying about getting flour in the keyboard!). It's also a spacesaver if you like to have a tv in the kitchen as some models of this computer include a tv tuner and remote. Here is a useful link about using it as a family orgainizer or kitchen computer: [...]

Only big fault I have with this pc is that it's impossible to disable the touchscreen function. Why would I want to do such a thing? With the windows open during the summer, even the smallest fruit fly buzzing around it's glossy bright screen is enough to cause the arrow to hop around the screen clicking on whatever it flies over. If a future software update fixes this (hopefully), I will be completely satisfied with my HP Touchsmart's performance and usefulness. I anyway love to use it and would definitely buy it again.

One other thing that makes me happy about using this computer is that it uses much less energy than the typical desktop reducing my household energy consumption. Whether for saving money or helping the environment (or both), every little bit helps. :)

I purchased this TouchSmart Computer back in January 2009, and have enjoyed using it every day. The setup was very simple. The sleek design is totally awesome. The 22" monitor is a perfect size for viewing. HP really out-did themselves on this one! I read some scary reviews complaining about problems with Windows Vista, but I haven't experienced ANY problems. I was hesitate to buy this computer at first due to the price, and the fact that I have 2 young grandkids who loved to use my old HP computer. It is definitely worth every penny I spent! And I no longer fear allowing the grandkids to use it because it is a very heavy-duty unit. Whether I'm using it as a regular desktop computer, TouchSmart, or flat-screen TV, this computer is simply amazing! I highly recommend this product to anyone.

Perfect for this moderate user

I read every review and watched every video available on the IQ506 before I decided to purchase. I was aware of all it's faults and strong points and I felt confident enough to click the "Buy Now" button. When it arrived I could hardly wait to rip it from it's cardbord home. Like everyone said, set up was a breeze. Even the most novice user should have no problem setting it up, which is simply plugging it in, and turning it on. It's look is stunning, and very modern. It's presence rivals that of my roommates 24inch iMac, which he desperately tried to convince me to purchase. I must say I feel I made the right decision. The touch interface is...ok. Far from perfect that for sure. When using the TouchSmart software it can be a bit sluggish, and seems to have a problem defaulting back to original settings. Again I was prepare for that so I'm not complaining. Apparently there is a software update that corrects that. I just haven't downloaded it yet. The Touchsmart suite really does feel uncompleted, there quite a few "quirks" that need to be addressed, but for me its nothing more than a novelty for showing off. I don't find myself using it very often. However I do like that you can use touch throughout vista and not you are not just limited to the TouchSmart suite. A couple nifty features I didn't know about though, are the gesture features. For instance when browsing the web you can swipe your finger left or right on the screen to go to a previous webpage or to the next. The same thing can be done with mouse by holding down the right button and swiping left or right. The machine runs incredibly quiet, and takes up veyr little real estate on my desk. The monitor is incredibly bright, almost too bright for me, as I keep it near the lowest setting. The resolution is beautiful and HD wallpaers look great on the 22inch screen. Having the icluded wireless mouse and keyboard give me so much freedom, and the ability to tuck them under the base when not in use is great. I don't do any processor intensive activities on my machine so she runs really quick. I know most of the components are laptop guts so keep that in mind before you try to play the latest 3rd person shooter. Overall I am very pleased with the machine. It has exceeded my expectations (there were quite a bit of negative reviews out there). My roommate claims he's not impressed (blind Mac fanboy) but I catch him gazing at it and asking quite a bit of questions. My name Diginixy, and I'm a PC.
