HP Unveils SpectreONE, Envy 23 and Envy 20 PCs, With Touchscreen and NFC

At the August end, Hewlett-Packard announced the launch of its Windows 8 Ultrabooks- two with touchscreens and one a hybrid PC. And now HP is unveiling its all-in-one touchscreen PCs today.

These latest and innovative desktops are aimed to offer all functions to users in one. Use these smart, thin, and curvy computers in the kitchens or family rooms where space is tight. These desktops are sleek objects of desire and are made to attract and inspire!

Let’s take a look at the specifications of the SpectreONE, the Envy 20, and the Envy 23 desktops offered by HP.

A top-of-the-line PC, the HP SpectreONE is a high-end machine. With a cool and sexy look, the HP SpectreONE sports a 23.6-inch HD display, with the glass flush to the edge of the screen. The 11.5 millimeters of thickness makes it the thinnest desktop available.

The HP SpectreONE is designed with a wireless trackpad. But it’s also important to note that this PC is not touchscreen.

The design of this machine gives it a cool, entertaining, and powerful look. It’s made with the latest Intel processor, an Nvidia 1-gigabyte graphics card, and optional ExpressCache and option solid state drive storage.

Its skill to identify near field communications (NFC) wireless technology makes it a great choice. HP says that the TouchZone NFC technology also works with NFC-equipped smartphones. Users can sync a smartphone’s content with the desktop just by tapping the phone on the computer’s reader.

The list of features does not end here. There are also two universal serial bus (USB) 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, high-definition multimedia interface-in (HDMI) and a Beats Audio headphone jack in the SpectreONE. This stylish computer comes with a two-year subscription to Norton Internet Security and HP SmartFriend service for 90 days, both for free! The price range of this version starts at $1,299.

Other desktops, the HP Envy 23 and HP Envy 20 unveiled by HP are also cool. They both come equipped with the latest Intel processors, ExpressCache, and solid-state drives for fast wake-up.

These all-in-ones are designed to spot 10 fingers at once. Their names come from Voodoo PC after it acquired the maker of gaming PCs. The HP Envy 20 has a 20-inch diagonal high-definition display, while the HP Envy 23 has a slightly bigger 23-inch display. The hard drives can store up to 3 terabytes of data. Both also offer Beats Audio for audiophiles.

You can grab the HP Envy 20 for $799 and the HP Envy 23 for $999.
