Yes, we all love our laptops. Whether they are sleek and thin, or light as air, they are all the rage these days, especially as they become more powerful workstations. However, HP doesn't want us to forget about the desktop PC, and is trying to prove their comeback with a slew of sleek new designs. The company announced a trio of tower PCs this week, and hope to lure in some new customers just in time for back-to-school season 2015.
The All-in-One PCs include the HP Pavilion Tower, HP ENVY Tower, HP ENVY Phoenix Tower, and HP Spectre Studio Display. The HP Pavilion Tower, more of a budget item at under $500, comes in a range of colors and a cute indented dot pattern along its face from some extra design. This one is said to be perfect for those back-to-schoolers. Inside, you get a choice of processors, including the Core i3, i5, or i7 4th generation Intel chips, or the A-series A4 through A10 processors from AMD. You really get a choice of affordable to high-end this way. Graphics in the Pavillion are supported by Nvidia's GTX 745, or AMD's Radeon R7 A330 and R7 A360 GPUs, and an optional 3TB of HDD storage (Cnet).
The HP ENVY ($699) and ENVY Phoenix ($899) lines are bigger performers than the Pavilions. With up to 3TB hard drives or 512GB SSDs, they are also both bigger storage supporters. As for graphics, the HP ENVY supports Nvidia's GTX 980 or AMD Radeon R9 380. The HP ENVY Phoenix's high-end option is also Nvidia GeForce GTX 980, as well as an unnamed AMD GPU.
Finally, the HP Spectre Studio Display PC offers a “fully immersive experience”. The company also claims it is “built for the customer who needs the best graphics frame rates and performance for gaming or hardcore tasks” (Tech Times). This means it's all about Intel's 4th generation Core i5 or i7 processors, and the choice of Nvidia GTX 980 or AMD Radeon GPUS.
All four PC options come with their own screen sizes with specialty displays, some of which have yet to be announced. As far as the budget-friendly Pavilion, we do know it will be available June 28th, and come with an option of three ISP display screen sizes, ranging from 21.5 inches, 23 inches, and 27 inches. The rest we will have to wait for announcements.
