Reviews for the HP TouchSmart IQ830

70% HP TouchSmart IQ830
Source: IT Reviewed English
  Few computers users would have any hesitation in recommending the IQ830. It is sleek, quiet, and has only one wire (albeit tethered to a substantial power brick). Sadly, the price is too rich for most and hardcore users will demand more performance. The main reason for buying this type of machine is simplicity and space saving - it makes tower systems looks antiquated. You’ll be up and running in no time at all with the IQ830 and there’s always the helpful printed User Guide to help you out should you get stuck. If you don’t mind splashing out about £400 more compared to a regular desktop machine with a good 24-inch monitor, the IQ830 is sure to impress.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS: Slower clocked 9600M GT and therefore a bit slower and cooler. In conjunction with an 9100M the 9600M GS is able to use HybridPower to save current.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


P7450: Entry level Core 2 Duo processor with 3 MB Level 2 Cache and due to the 25 Watt TDP also suited for 13" laptops.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


25.5": » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


16 kg: This laptop is extremely heavy. Even babys can be carried easier. Only few desktop replacements with 20 inch display fit in this class of weight.
