form or function?

engadget have an piece on the HP IQ770 “crossfire”  a Vista based all in one touchscreen machine that is probably the first to make use of the tablet like functionality in vista in a desktop format. first impressions  are of a monstrosity more akin to a startrek control console than a device you’d want in your  living room. specs are pretty impressive and the HDTV tuner is interesting but there’s no way it would pass my wifes aesthetics test – a good start but manufacturers must try harder. I’m not a Mac man although I have a couple in the house and I do like OS X’s feel  but you can’t deny they have the design right – roll on the demise of the PC
