New all-in-one Windows 7 PCs from HP announced

HP is a big believer of the all-in-one PC design approach. Today, the company announced it is launching four new all-in-one Windows 7 PC products; two designed for business and two for consumers. Perhaps the most impressive looking PC is the Envy 23, with its 23 inch monitor.

As described on the HP website, the Envy 23 comes standard with Beats Audio support. Users have the option of picking either Intel or AMD-based processors. It can also come with an optional HDMI port, Blu-Ray disc player or TV tuner. Pricing starts at $949.99 and it will go on sale in early August.

HP also launched the cheaper Pavilion 23 all-in-one PC, again with a 23 inch monitor but without the Beats Audio support or a way to put in some of the other options that the Envy 23 has. It's pricing starts at $649.99 and it will go on sale in early August. Two more business all-in-one PCs, the HP Compaq Elite 8300 and the HP Compaq Pro 6300, were also announced today and will go on sale in early September.

While not mentioned in HP's press release, The Verge reports that the company has also decided to kill off its Omni branding for its all-in-on PCs from now on. HP believes that it wants to keep its brand names consistent with that of its laptop product lineup.

Price=fail these things need to be $750 for an I7 with a nice graphics card.

True, the price is a high for the home consumer, but I'm sure a lot of that is the large monitor. Additionally, PCs like this are often bought to be used as kiosks and thus are maybe higher priced since businesses can usually afford to spend a little extra... maybe?

No touch? Fail

You wanna touch that thing? Even with Windows 8 on it, vertical screens are not meant to be used as touchscreen.

Verticle screen? What are you talking about?

Are you sure about that? I mean I've seen people write on chalk/white boards, and those are "vertical". I don't see where you are going here.

While standing and on eye-height, yes.

This hardware is meant to be placed on a desk, with you sitting on a chair. In that situation, a vertical touchscreen is not really easy to use. IMO.

I think for the average person, who only uses a browser and office, the tower is somewhat obsolete.

A tower however is almost essential for the top end of gaming. Mobile graphics solutions pale compared to a fully fledged card.

Am I the only one who dislikes the stand design of these? I much prefer the design of the stand that comes with the iMac and the Dell XPS One 27.

I can see how conceptually a stand like this could be nice, but the execution is pretty ugly.
