HP has announced four new all-in-one computers running on Windows 8 that are expected to hit stores this fall, including the powerful SpectreOne, a PC with a 11.5 mm profile that boasts embedded NFC.
Its 23.6 inch screen displays pictures in Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels), and its streamlined design and wireless touchpad recall Apple's iMac.
Seemless data exchange with NFC
HP's SpectreOne's NFC capabilities enable it to transfer data seemlessly from a mobile device and sync different accounts. It will also include the Beats Audio technology, an HD front-facing webcam and remote control. The computer will be shipped with a complete version of Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 and Premiere Elements 10.
It will run on Microsoft's brand new operating system, Windows 8, although its screen is not touch-enabled. It will ship with a touch-sensitive pad, that somewhat resembles the Magic Trackpad. The computer will go on sale in November in the US, for $1,299.
Three additional all-in-one PCs in the lineup
HP also unwrapped its Envy 20 and Envy 23 Touchsmart touchscreen PCs, with respective screen sizes of 20 and 23 inches, which will hit stores in late October. Their respective prices start at $799 and $999.
A much cheaper option is the 20 inch Pavilion 20, with a regular screen, at $499. All the PCs in the new lineup will ship with Windows 8.
