Call me mad, call me sad, call me geeky, I don’t care. Boy do I love touchscreens. They make me happy. I think it will still be a few years before I become blasé about this technology and how much it is changing the way I interact with my gadgets.

Take the ASUS AIO ET2410 All-in-One PC for example. I don’t own a touchscreen PC (yet) and I’ve not has as many opportunities to review them as I’d like (read that as: I want lots please and keep them coming) so having this ET2410 to play around with is a bit like being a kid in a candy store.

Firing up the ASUS AIO ET2410 is quick, quiet and painless. I had some teething troubles with Explorer halting all operations and demanding a reinstall of the entire operating system but those are due to the poor thing having been abused by previous reviewers. However, once the AIO was up and running I was lost.

The touchscreen features are responsive and accurate. A tap on the icon, the arrow, the key is quickly translated into an action and I have only had maybe two occurrences of needing to tap twice before the screen responded. Not only that, but the 23.6 inches of space make it an almost dreamy experience.

I was soon having an embarrassing amount of fun with the extremely cool photo and video feature where I found I could set my head on fire, wear a sombrero, pretend to be beaten up by my husband with the BLAM feature, and other such childish things. It appears I have failed to grow up.

You can pinch-zoom, rotate images, scroll through web pages, upload movies and so on and so wonderfully forth. It feels rather Minority Report swishing through work and web pages.

I am impressed with the ASUS AIO ET2410INTS All-in-One PC. The features (of which there are many) are solid, the processing power is decent, the screen is beautifully lit, and the touchscreen works like a charm. I am very excited about testing the screen quality with the built in Blu-ray player and the gaming potential.

While the IGB nVidia GeForce GT 540M GPU won’t play the latest games at their highest resolutions, it should handle the latest games in some way or another and I plan to find out exactly how well it does in my next post.
