good hardware and monitor for full high definition content

a fresh take on the PC, finally some competition for the iMac

the cost of a Mac without the superior design, finesse, or high end software

such a large touchscreen is cool, but not functional (especially if you mount it!)

Freezes all the time. Poor HP customer service, they do not want to replace the computer. They could not fix on going same problem for 7 times. In 40 days I was able to use the machine just for 4 days. Tons of customers have the same freezing problems. Check out HP IQ 816 problems keyword.
