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:

HP Omni 120 PCs

20-inch 1080p Full HD widescreen

HP Omni 220 PCs
September 11, starting at $799.99
21.5-inch 1080p Full HD widescreen

    At least they have wide enough LCD screens,but to tell you the truth I wouldn't touch these HP gear with a bar of soap. They usually last only for their warranty period & than start to fall to bits if your lucky.

    I just wanted to note that there is incongruency between your source (presumably the newsrelease here)and the specs listed on some of the HP pages. From what I found the Omnia 120 (difference in HDD capacity and screen resolution), Touchsmart 320 (difference in screen resolution and no Blu-ray drive), Touchsmart Elite 7320 (includes choice of Pentiums in addition to i3, i5, and i7), and finally HP Pro 3420 (also features Pentium and Celeron).

    I was unable to find such pages for the Omni 220 and Touchsmart 420 so I'm not sure about their specs. But I would like to note that I did not see the mention of "Beats Audio" on any of the pages, which is odd considering how much HP likes to advertise that.
