Hewlett-Packard has announced its four new ranges of all-in-one Spectre PCs, with the flagship-bearing SpectreOne desktop that is so thin it is dubbed the company’s thinnest all-in-one PC to date and measuring only 11.5-millimetre thick. 
 
All running PCs are running using Windows 8 but the high-end SpectreOne desktop is not made with a touchscreen display panel. To enable the multi-touch-gesture function to let users scroll, swipe and tap the touch-enabled Window’s 8 tile-based user interface, HP has bundled a touchpad with the PC. 
 
According to HP, the omission of touchscreen in SpectreOne boils down to meeting its target to make a slim PC. Adding few more millimetres would not let the company achieve the desired size for the hardware even if it is one known for its TouchSmart line of devices.  
 
The sleek design of the SpectreOne comes with a 23.6-inch flush-glass of full HD display with a curved back. The desktop is powered by NVIDIA 1GB graphic card, optional SSD and optional ExressCache, a feature that boost the boot times and application start times. 
 
The SpectreOne has the near-field communication feature (NFC) enabled which then allows for file transfer or login to the desktop by tapping a smartphone or NFC tags on its base. SpectreOne also has two USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.0 ports.
 
The other PCs unveiled by HP are mid-range touchscreen models, the Envy 23 and the Envy 20 TouchSmart PCs, each one sporting 20- and 23-inch diagonal display sizes, with 1920 x 1080 resolution. The two desktops are also Windows 8-compatible that offer 10-point multi-touch technology. Featuring three-terabyte of storage space, the two Envy models feature Beats Audio and will be powered by Ivy Bridge processors.  
 
Finally, the Pavilion 20, another all-in-one in the low-end range, which is another 1080p system and non-touch that will come with both Intel and AMD chips. 
 
HP has yet to announce availability in Australia and pricing of SpectreOne and the two mid-range desktop models.
