Kumar, Harrow, London General user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I have now had the chance after a week to open the machine and it is so fast and very well built. I like for the following:
1. Very clear screen
2. Very fast processor and well built
3. Good size and not very heavy
4. Good viewing angle and very good speakers and sound
5. Extremely easy to set up
Bad points:
I would have liked HP to give a cover for the screen as this would be useful like my imac to cover when not in use.

Hing, Surrey General user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up. Take out of the box, plug in the power supply, and plug in the usb dongle for the keyboard and mouse. That's it! You don't even need the keyboard and mouse as it's touchscreen. This is to replace a laptop so the screen size is lovely, and the sound quality is very good.
Bad points:
The screen is really glossy which means unwanted reflection in any bright lighting, but the picture quality is great. The mouse is not the best, but I just use my old wireless one.

Manufacturer's Description

Introducing the amazing touch technology and cutting-edge design of the new HP TouchSmart 520-1000 Desktop PC series. It’s a design of its own – and we can’t wait for you to get your fingers on it!

Anyone who appreciates both beauty and lightening speed and amazing technology.


  • Featuring Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium and/or other operating systems

Stylish design to stay in touch

  • With its new breakthrough design, lighter and thinner, the HP TouchSmart 520 is more impressive than ever. Its iconic profile, amazing touch technology and cutting-edge design make this a PC that keeps you entertained, informed – and in touch!

A more awesome Internet

  • HP PCs feature Windows Internet Explorer for a better browsing experience.

Amazing computing experience

  • With a freestand profile that appears to float, the HP TouchSmart 520 tilts back a convenient 30° for comfortable use and easy viewing. The HD display gives you not only an almost cinematic experience – it’s also an intuitive HP touch screen.

Touch the future

  • Type if you want to, but the amazing touch-enabled interface lets you pinch, rotate and flick the screen, too. And there’s a suite of built-for-touch apps – twice as many as any other PC. From Facebook to Twitter – all your favourite destinations.

Clutter-free surfaces

  • Simply plug in and you’re ready to go. Access your notebook with the comfort of your widescreen PC using HP LinkUp – quickly, easily and wirelessly. Stow your keyboard between the base and the display when it’s not in use to unclutter your surfaces.

Outstanding performance beyond beauty

  • Lighting fast processors, superior graphics and up to 58.4 cm (23”) of full, fluid HD mean you can immerse yourself in your favourite movies, games and more. And with exclusive Beats Audio™ configurations, you won’t lose a note of your music.

A touch of magic

  • The next-generation TouchSmart 5.0 interface lets you customize your carousel, multiplies your desktop, and provides endless entertainment possibilities with a range of touch-integrated applications, Windows content, and more.
