Since Windows 8 was announced, it has been in the limelight – for some good reasons while for some bad reasons also. It has always managed to stay in limelight by rolling out different preview versions and announcing new features time after time. Plus it gained momentum as experts were criticizing its design while some geeks where appreciating it.
We don’t want to talk much about Windows 8 here as it has officially been announced that Windows 8 will be out by October this year and you can enjoy it in your own PC.

Still there is about a month to its release, HP has unveiled four amazing all-in-one desktop computers, which are all super-slim. Most of the HP all-in-ones or the TouchSmart line of devices are quite famous for its touch-screen, but there is an exception in one of the unveiled PCs. The all-in-one PC, SpectreOne which is the slimmest in the group, is not a touch-screen computer. SpectreOne is just 11.5mm thin, the company’s slimmest all-in-one PCs.
HP SpectreOne all-in-one :
SpectreOne is a sleek PC with a 23.6-inch flush-glass full HD display and a curved back; features a wireless trackpad and powered up with multi-touch technology (Much like Apple – HP should be ready with some lawyers) so that the users can scroll and swipe through the Windows 8′s metro-style user interface.
The SpectreOne is loaded with 1GB NVDIA graphics card and an optional ExpressCache that speeds up the boot times and applications start time. A notable feature of HP’s SpectreOne is that it supports near-field communication (NFC) technology which means you can share stuff with just a tap. The device is equipped two USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.0 ports.
As per HP, the SpectreOne is powered up by the latest intel processors but didn’t reveal the actual configuration. Also the release date hasn’t been announced yet. But the device is expected to be out by November in the US with a price tag of $1,299.
HP Envy 23 and HP Envy 20 :
HP has also unveiled two more all-in-ones. The two PCs are HP Envy 20 and HP Envy 23, both are touchscreen devices and the name is so because of their respective diagonal display sizes. Both the touch-based all-in-ones are powered by Windows 8 and sports a 10-point multi-touch functionality. Plus, you wouldn’t need to worry about the memory, as it is loaded with a huge disk space, about 3 TB of storage space.
Both the computers, Envy 23 and Envy 20 are to be released in the month of October, priced at $999 for 23-inch and $799 for the latter.
HP Pavilion 20 all-in-one :
The fourth all-in-one in line is the HP Pavilion 20 which is also slated to be out by the month of October with a price tag of $499.
