HP Unleashes Sleek, But Affordable All-one-PC 200
HP has announced three new All-in-one PCs and with this latest line-up, there is definitely something available for everyone. First, the new HP All-in-one 200 introduces a new form factor with a 21.5″ LED backlit display. This PC is powered by the Intel 2.7ghz e5400 Processor, 4GB of ram, a 500GB hard drive, DVD burner, 7 USB ports, memory card reader and a 1920x1080p resolution. The system is running HP’s superb MediaSmart Software Suite, which combined with its built-in premium speakers and 1080p display should make it a lean green and affordable multimedia machine that is ready to go face to face with the 21″ iMac. An optional matching wireless keyboard and mouse are also available. And it can’t be a coincidence that the system’s launch coincides with Earth Day on thursday, since the HP All-in-one 200 is ENERGY STAR qualified. “It features a mercury-free, white light-emitting diodes (WLED) display that uses less energy than previous-generation displays.” An All-one-PC 200 system with the most basic configuration starts at $699.
Next the TouchSmart 600 is an update to the TouchSmart line. Like its predecessor, it features a 23″ Touchscreen display, but it’s now running on the snappy Core i3 and Core i5 processors. The system also now features Beats Audio, which were developed by HP and Beats by Dr. Dre. The TouchSmart multimedia suite has also been updated and it now comes with Paint It! for artists, and Roxio CinemaNow for renting and buying movies on demand. Pricing begins at $1099.
The HP Compaq 6005 Pro Ultra Slim desktop is somewhat of a different beast altogether, in the way that it’s geared at small businesses and enterprises. But its unique form factor is what really makes the Compaq 6005 Pro stand out, because although it isn’t actually an All-in-one PC, it can behave like one. The actual system measures just 10″H x 2.6″W and it is designed to easily connect to the back of a LCD display when using the optional HP Integrated Work Center. The HP Compaq 6005 Pro runs on AMD processors featuring VISION Pro technology and integrated ATI Radeon 4200 graphics. The system also supports dual monitor set ups, it comes with a mini PCIe slot so that a wireless card can easily be added, and finally, the system comes with an amazing total of 10 USB ports. It’s also the first AMD PC to be BFR/PVC free. Pricing begins at $599.
All three PCs will be available at the end of April.
