HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart Review

HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart Review

HP dove into the Windows 8 ecosystem without hesitation, and the results of that effort are tons of new laptops and desktop computers, some of which are the company’s new ENVY TouchSmart all-in-one series of Windows 8 machines, which we first heard about back in September.

In fact, we've reviewed a computer that's quite similar to this one before, only now the Predator is back with Windows 8 and some slightly different hardware. The problem with building a gaming rig is still the same as always, though: PC gamers can be a fickle bunch, with the most hardcore not paying any attention to pre-built machines and instead building their own rigs. That isn't an option for everyone, so can the Predator AG3620 offer enough to be worthy of those gamers' dollars? Read on to find out.
