HP's TouchSmart 9300 Elite is a business-centric, all-in-one powerhouse. It may not be much to look at, but it delivers excellent performance, sits on an easy-to-adjust stand, and even tackles multimedia rather well. Our review model, priced at $1599 (as of February 9, 2012), came packed with an Intel Core i7-2600 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, a discrete Nvidia GeForce GT425M graphics card, a slot-loading Blu-ray drive, a high-definition webcam, and built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. As befits a business PC, our model ran the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Professional. In our PCWorld Labs' WorldBench 6 benchmark tests, the TouchSmart 9300 Elite earned an impressive mark of 148, putting near the top of its category, big-screen all-in-one PCs, for performance. By way of comparison, our current top-rated big-screen all-in-one, the Lenovo IdeaCentre B520, scored only slightly higher, at 156. The TouchSmart 9300 Elite performs acceptably in graphics tests, though it's hardly a gaming machine. In our Unreal Tournament 3 tests, the system managed a frame rate of 37.1 frames per second (at high quality settings, and 1920-by-1200-pixel resolution).
The HP TouchSmart 9300 Elite ($1,564 direct) is the small business version of HP's flagship TouchSmart desktop PC. It has the same chassis, touch screen, and most of the same internal components as the consumer TouchSmart 610 line. It's a great system if you're going to be developing touch apps for your business or business clients. Aside from the lack of Beats Audio logos, the 9300 Elite is visually identical to the HP TouchSmart 610-1065qd ($1,789.99 list, 5 stars) and HP TouchSmart 610-1150y ($1,199.99 list, 4.5 stars) that preceded the business model. The desktop has the same 23-inch widescreen that displays in 1,920-by-1,080 resolution (true 1080p), with the same two-finger multi-touch screen. All three have the same forward five-degree tilt and tilbackwards 60 degree tilt, which provides a much more ergonomic way to navigate than trying to reach straight out towards a vertical screen on your desk. The speaker bar even functions as an impromptu palm rest. The tilting mechanism and stand work together to give you a solid, bounce-free workspace, unlike the Cybernet iOne-H5 ($1,177 direct, 3 stars), which suffered from a wobbly screen during touch operations.
