The HP TouchSmart advantage
The 23-inch diagonal HP TouchSmart520 PC is designed for consumers who demand a premium multimedia and touch experience. This TouchSmart features a suite of built-for-touch applications and a free-standing, tilt-enabled full HD(1) display, complementing its environment instead of defining it.

The newest version of HP’s exclusive TouchSmart 5.0 software provides the most intuitive, immersive touch experience to date. Some of the features include touch optimized applications from Twitter and Facebook, as well as HP’s exclusive RecipeBox, webcam and music applications(2).
Users can also conveniently access Windows apps, desktop icons and built-for-touch applications within the same desktop environment. With a scrolling desktop that expands horizontally via the TouchSmart’s Magic Canvas, users can easily customize their user experience by dragging and dropping their favourite files and apps onto the TouchSmart’s carousel.
Additionally, users can experience content and programs from a notebook PC on the TouchSmart’s Magic Canvas with HP LinkUp Technology(2) for a more comfortable, entertaining and productive experience.
Music lovers will enjoy a premium listening experience with integrated Beats Audio technology on HP TouchSmart PCs.
Affordable, stylish home computing
The space-saving HP Omni series PC provides an ideal combination of form, function and affordability. The new model, Omni120, offers a minimalist, streamlined design with a metallic pedestal that elegantly lifts the display, and also minimizes clutter.
With an all-new easel design, the 20-inch diagonal Omni120 PC offers ample storage, built-in speakers and a vivid HD(1) display to pump up your entertainment ante. The new Omni PC also features HP LinkUp Technology(2), which lets users view and interact with content from a notebook PC on the Omni PC.
