, Brandon has the scoop on the next generation of HP TouchSmart PCs: the IQ804 and IQ816
. These new PCs are bigger than the previous models (25.5” vs. 22”) and, like the older ones, they let you shine ambient lighting on your keyboard. However, now, you can change the color of that light. As someone who wanted to purchase the HP MediaSmart WHS just for the Easter egg where you can customize the lighting scheme
, I have to admit this makes the new TouchSmart PCs look pretty sexy to me. But those pretty lights aren’t all the new PCs have to offer: they also come with a pocket media drive for portable media, built-in TV tuners, giant hard drives (804 = 500GB, 816=750GB), a wall-mounting kit, a Blu-ray drive, screens with an image resolution of 1920x1200 pixels, and, of course, a natural user interface that works via touch.
