New Line of HP AIOs Has "Something for Everyone"

While unnamed sources claim that HP approached LG, Samsung and other companies about selling off its Personal Systems Group as far back as last year, the company is clearly still on track to saturate the PC sector with its notebooks, desktops and all-in-one computers. Wednesday the company revealed its largest investment in the all-in-one desktop PC market to date, spanning seven models with starting prices as low as $399.99 USD.

"The popularity of the all-in-one form factor continues to grow, and HP’s contribution to this market is significant," said PSG executive vice president Todd Bradley. "We continue to expand our portfolio to remain the global leader in Windows-based all-in-one PCs, introducing innovation that matters to business customers and consumers alike."

Given that each model has various configurations, here's the list of all seven basic models with a (very) brief description of each, their starting prices and estimated release dates:
