HP reveals upcoming Windows 8 all-in-one PCs

HP revealed plans for some portable Windows 8-based products a couple of weeks ago but today the PC company also revealed plans to offer four new all-in-one PCs that are also made to work with Microsoft's next operating system.

The company's press release offered details for the HP ENVY 23 and ENVY 20 TouchSmart PCs, both of which will have 10 point touchscreens for their respective 23 inch and 20 inch displays. Both all-in-one PCs will have up to three TB of hard drive storage, Intel processors, options for SSDs and Beats Audio. 

Both will be released in October with the price of the HP ENVY 23 starting at $999 and the EVNY 20 starting at $799. HP will also launch a budget-themed all-in one PC in October, the HP Pavilion 20, with a price starting at $499.

The high end Windows 8 all-in-one PC will be the SpectreONE, which some people believe has a keyboard that mimic's one from Apple. As far as the SpectreONE, it will have a 23.6-inch screen. While the screen is not touch enabled, HP is offering a wireless trackpad that will let users access the Windows 8 "Modern" UI.

The PC also has a dedicated NVIDIA graphics card, along with NFC technology, two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports and more. The HP SpectreONE will be released in November with a starting price of $1,299.

I doubt if apple would bother suing they are hardly even close to apple quality and build they are cheap POSes that fall apart after a few months.... HPs are the cheapest PCs.

Strange, my HP tower here at work is 2 years old and chugging along merrily. It wasn't the cheapest but it certainly hasn't fallen apart.

The design certainly looks nice. How well will H-P handle the required tech support? My experiences have been abysmal...to the extent that H-P has been banished from my company.

It's been a mixed bag for me, from really good (telling me the type of compatible processors their custom Mobo's take on their laptops) and kinda poor.

Software? There is not much they can do, out of their control and too many variables.

Hardware? That's their area but usually the use doesn't know whats up which makes it hard for the support/user to interact. Apple have the lucky solution of saying "Just pop in to one of our geniuses" who will sort all the problems out. The only problem with the genius approach is if you live outside the US eg NZ, there is no such thing as an apple store or genius. At least I have never met one.

The Spectre One is gorgeous! But with Windows 8 I'm going to get a tablet (Windows 8 Pro) and keep Windows 7 desktop when I need a more powerful machine.

I wish HP had gone with all USB 3 ports, though.

If the 20" for $799 has an I5, that would be an ok deal. I'm guessing it's an I3, but the way things are going, probably a single core Pentium, D-Bags.

I'm guessing the screen has to recognise much more finger strokes than the current all-in-one touch screens.

Up to 10 fingers at once...
