HP Envy 23-d060qd TouchSmart Review

While this all-in-one desktop model might not have the easiest name to memorize, it certainly makes up for it with cutting-edge features. The HP Envy 23-d060qd is the latest in touchscreen desktop exploration.
Coming with Windows 8, the touchscreen feature allows you to enjoy clicking on the tiles that the new OS has made so popular.
Here’s a quick rundown of why you should consider spending $1600+ on this desktop.
The Screen
The 23-inch touchscreen display is perfect for online browsing, Blu-Ray movies and gaming, as well. It’s not always that you get a screen that can handle all of the three with aplomb.
The 1080p full HD screen has a brilliant resolution of 1920x1080. This makes images and videos a joy to witness on this HP model. The screen is extremely responsive, thanks to the 10 finger capacitive feature.
To top it off, the edge to edge glass finish gives the desktop a classy look. With a firm stand, touchscreen activity doesn’t result in too much shaking of the display.
Performance
With a DDR3 RAM of 12 GB, which can be upgraded to 16 GB, this desktop should handle all your entertainment and work needs quite easily.
Storage isn’t a problem as you have tons of it with the 3TB SATA hard drive that runs at 7,200rpm. This is a huge boost and something heavy duty users will find reassuring.
The powerful Intel Core i7 -3770S processor ensures that machine sluggishness is a thing of the past. Smooth operation is all you will get while using the HP Envy 23-d060qd.
Let’s not forget the graphics card that is an NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M. This allows you to have a mind-blowing entertainment experience. Gamers too will find this card up their expectations when loading heavy duty titles.
