Retromodo: HP’s 1983 Touchscreen All-In-One

With tablets, smartphones and touch-capable operating systems, you could be forgiven for thinking that touch-based computing is only a new phenomenon. In product terms, though, it’s been around for quite some time, as this 1983 touchscreen all-in-one demonstrates.

HP dug the HP 150 out of mothballs to demonstrate against its new all-in-one lines; the intent was clearly to show how things have progressed in terms of computing power and design.
