HP Unveils Most Natural All-in-One Touch PC Experience.
Beats Audio special-edition all-in-one PC offers bold design, premium sound.
PALO ALTO, Calif. — HP today announced the HP ENVY Recline All-in-One PC series, offering the best, most immersive touch experience available on an All-in-One PC.
With an innovative product design, HP’s new All-in-One PCs allow users to pivot the touch screen lower and closer, making the interaction more accessible and comfortable.
“Customers have told us that they want touch on their PCs, and at HP we’re always looking for ways to improve the experience,” said Mike Nash, vice president, Product Management, Consumer PCs and Consumer Solutions, HP. “HP’s family of reclining all-in-one PCs offer new ways to stay productive and enjoy immersive experiences such as movies and games with the most natural touch experience available.”
Immersive touch PCs look great, sound great, feel great
The HP ENVY Recline23 TouchSmart All-in-One PC and HP ENVY Recline27 TouchSmart All-in-One PC, HP’s most immersive touchscreen PCs, feature 10-point touch and a revolutionary adjustable design that allows for a more comfortable experience and greater control than ever before.
An HP study revealed that while using touch screens, an overwhelming majority of people preferred their screen in a low and close position for 100 percent of touch-related tasks.(1) The HP ENVY Recline series meets the needs of touch users with a full high-definition (HD)(2) IPS touch screen that responds to all 10 fingers at once, and a unique hinge that allows the screen to be repositioned with ease. The hinge enables the screen to seamlessly move below the table and closer to the lap for a natural touch navigation position, or it can be adjusted upright for traditional use and to watch movies.
Both the HP ENVY Recline23 and HP ENVY Recline27 TouchSmart All-in-One PCs are equipped with 4th-generation Intel® Core™ i-series processors and NVIDIA discrete graphics to help users with the most demanding tasks. The HP ENVY Recline27 also features Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to let users share photos, contacts and URLs with a simple tap.
Additionally, HP is offering a new All-in-One PC with a bold design and premium sound for entertainment and music enthusiasts. The HP ENVY Recline23 TouchSmart All-in-One PC Beats Edition features black and red accents with Beats Audio™ driven dual speakers for the best-sounding, richest audio experience available on a PC.
