Intel H67 chipset supports Ivy Bridge but requires a BIOS update.
Does HP plan to release a bios update?
Is there anything we can do to get them to offer an update?
I really wish HP would support it.
I've love this machine even more with a new Ivy Bridge CPU and HD 4000 graphics.
Has anyone tried installing a processor to see what happens?

Some third parties have released bios updates to support the Ivy Bridge product. A lot of regession testing needs to be done on the older motherboards. I would suspect that HP will release new models of the TouchSmart with Ivy Bridge support.
The Intel 2600 is a viable upgrade for your TouchSmart.
