HP’s Large-as-a-TV ‘Monitor’

As part of a significant desktop PC rollout, HP has introduced three new AIO PCs and an UltraHD monitor.

The new Pavilion AIO PCs (currently unnamed), in 21.5″, 23″ and 27″ sizes, have 1920 x 1080 resolution (we are unsure of the panel type and are checking with HP). They have edge-to-edge-glass and users can choose between different processors. Intel (Haswell) options are Celeron or Core i3/i5/i7, while A4 through A8 or A10 processors can be chosen from AMD.

Integrated graphics are standard, but owners can also choose to use AMD Radeon R7 A330 or A360 discrete graphics. The PCs have up to 3TB of storage. They feature HDMI, USB 3.0 (x2), USB 2.0 (x4) and RJ45 ports.

HP’s new Spectre Studio Display is a 32″ UltraHD monitor, also using an IPS panel. It will upscale content starting at 1280 x 720 to UltraHD and features two front-facing 6W speakers.

Picture-in- and picture-by-picture modes are featured. The monitor has an anti-glare display and can tilt between -5° and 23°. It features DisplayPort, HDMI (supporting UltraHD at 60fps) and MHL-HDMI ports. A remote is bundled with the unit.

The 21.5″ and 23″ Pavilion AIO PCs will be on sale on 28th June for $650 and $700, respectively. A price has not been announced for the 27″ model yet. The Spectre Studio Display will be launched on 24th May, starting at $1,000.
