HP TouchSmart 520t Desktop PC Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Details

HP TouchSmart 520t Desktop PC Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Details: The TouchSmart 520t is a high-end all in one desktop PC from HP. It sits at the higher end of the company’s line of touch-enabled desktops. Among its features is a set of powerful hardware, including a quad core processor and 2 TB worth of hard drive. In addition, it is full of entertainment features, including a large 1080p display, Beats Audio compatibility, a Blu-ray drive, a TV tuner, and an accompanying remote control. It also comes with an HDMI-in port, which means that it can be connected to an HDTV and make it as a secondary display.

On the outside, the HP TouchSmart 520t is covered by a glossy black plastic chassis. Rather than just having a straightforward all in one design, the touch screen is supported by two vertical arms and on its bottom is a wide plastic base, that is adjustable using a single hinge. The hinge is quite immense and looks sturdy but it is well housed in the base. It is well constructed enough so that no matter how the user swipes and presses on the screen, the monitor doesn’t wobble on its place. In addition, the hinge is capable of scaling a wide range motion from a completely vertical 90 degree angle, all the way back to 60 degrees.

On the back of the HP TouchSmart 520t’s enormous display are the rest of the components. On the sides of the desktop is some of its interface. On the right is the slot loading Blu-ray/DVD+-RW drive, four function buttons for the monitor settings, and the aforementioned HDMI input. On the left edge is a memory card reader that caters to all SD/HC, MMC, MS/Pro, and xD, as well as two USB v 3.0 ports, and separate jacks for headphone and mic.


Also on the back is a Gigabit Ethernet jack and more USB ports but this time v 2.0, to give a total of six. A seventh USB port is also present but it is dedicated to the adaptor for the keyboard and mouse. Additional inputs include an integrated TV tuner, a remote control, and an array of audio outputs. As for wireless connectivity, the 520t is capable of wireless LAN 802.11/b/g/n, as well as Bluetooth. In addition, the HP TouchSmart 520t also comes with some wireless peripherals, in the form of the standard wireless keyboard and mouse, which both share the aforementioned single wireless USB receiver.

As mentioned, the HP TouchSmart 520t sports quite a dazzling widescreen display. The panel has an effective resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, and as already mentioned, a multi touch enabled surface. Below the screen sits a speaker bar. Sounds coming from this grill are both crisp and clear, so there’s not much problem listening to music of basically all variety. In addition, the device sports Beats Audio that all in all takes music tripping to a whole new level. This makes the device a really good companion for entertainment purposes as the audio complements its HD display very well.

The HP TouchSmart 520t uses an advanced quad-core Intel Core i7-2600s processor that is pegged at 2.8GHz. In addition, it has 8GB worth of RAM. With these specs, video playback and memory intensive applications run very smoothly, and there is virtually no evidence of stuttering. On the other hand, the physical hard drive is worth 2 TB – twice that of the capacity of standard all in ones, and pegged at a speed of 5,400 rpm. As for the graphics chip, it uses an AMD Radeon HD 6450A processor that gives it more graphical edge over its main competitors. Games and other applications that need 3D rendering run relatively smooth, although the device can only cater so much to those simpler animations rather than those in the hardcore games.

There are several built-in applications in the system. One of these is HP’s TouchSmart suite, a 60-day trial of Norton Internet Security 2012, Microsoft Office Starter 2010 with the full suite preloaded but still needing to be activated by a product key. There is also the so-called HP LinkUp that enables the desktop and any other computer on the network to share files through something like a home-based cloud.

Overall, the HP TouchSmart 520t is a fast and powerful alternative to all other mainstream all-in-one desktops. It sports an advanced processor and has a large memory space.
