The TouchSmart all–in–one line, originally announced by none other that Bill Gates himself last year, has just got a welcome heft, with the new IQ504 and 506.
These sleek silver and chrome chassis will pack a mean punch, with a whopping 256MB of NVIDIA GeForce 9300 M HS HD graphics, Wi–Fi, and 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo T5850 inside. Certainly enough to get through those Last of the Summer Wine re-runs you downloaded.
The intuitive touch screen media control has a very Apple TV-esque feel to it, and looks great on the crisp 22 inch screen, plus if you plump for the IQ506 model, you’ll get a built in TV receiver as well.
Will it match up to the iMac’s slim line styling? We will have to see when it launches here next month, but for just $1299.99 in the States we hope the UK price will be equally touchy feely.
