IQ 816 Dead end product not windows 7 friendly
I own the IQ 816 with blu-ray. The same as this system otherwise. Upgraded to Windows 7 Professional. I was required to reformat the drive. HP was unwilling to provide a replacement copy of Touchsmart or DVD Corel which is the blu-ray driver and more. I was told by HP tech that this computer was designed for Vista and not Windows 7. I could restore Vista or do without this software and Windows 7. You might be able to upgrade to Windows 7 Home edition. I wanted the ability to run XP software regardless of this computers potential loss of touchscreen abilities in XP mode. So if you need to reformat your hard drive to get to Windows 7 don't expect much assistance from HP or replacement software. This is a Vista PC and only a Vista PC regardless. It still is better than the IQ 775 which is the same as a PC jr, junk.

Wonder Computer!! HIGHLY RECOMMNED
I bought this computer two weeks ago from [...], and I got it for a great price. Let me preface, I am a HUGE fan of the iMac and love all of Apple's products, but this computer folks is REALLY a good value. I got mine for $750 with Windows 7, and it is super easy to set up, very accesible, well designed, and runs really quick. The touch screen is not gimmicky because it works quite well! The slimline keyboard that it comes with is very nice, even the mouse is sturdy. The webcam function is SO much fun and my girlfriend and I enjoy talking to her family in Poland on it via Skype. It has some really fun things to do on it :) We love pictures and taking videos of our kids and such, and this computer makes everything so easy and fun, we went and got her the HP DV7 laptop to go with it! HP is back on top!!

Get an Imac or Gateway One
I'll start by stating: You better off getting an Imac and dual booting windows as the Imac is a much more robust and powerful computer than this not counting the ability to have everything windows and mac wise together in one machine. This HP touch performs pretty decent but for the price it's slow, takes forever to boot up, has a very low end crap video card so graphics/gaming is very limited, the keyboard is decent, the mouse sucks completely and it seems like half the time your fighting it for control, the touch features are cool but lag pretty bad and the sound is sub-par. I do not trust HP products myself because they have always been epic failures for me, but this is what my gf wanted for her new computer seeing as how her XPS & HP Pavilion both completely failed on her in less than 3 years. The dell XPS had a wireless card fail and screen totally fail, while the HP Pavilion laptop had the wireless card, sound card, video card and hard drive all fail completely one right after the other. That being said I was very sceptical about buying another HP but this is the one she has wanted since it's release, so despite my trying to sway her to an IMAC 24" for the same price she got this. Again the Imac with it's way better hardware reliability and video card can run windows or any game/graphics eons better than this, so why get it? On the pro side: The wireless has been working well, the resolution is pretty good and the screen is clear, the keyboard light on the unit is a nice feature, it's a little short on USB slots compared to an Imac or similar units but you have them, and the all in one feature is great for a less cumbersome system. It is designed well but not worth the price of admission. I wrote hp/Compaq off as junk brands years ago, hopefully if this computer sucks she will do the same. This computer is useless....completely useless.

24" Imac of equal price >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Any Hp Touchsmart PC.
