All-in-Ones are generally perceived as large monitors taking up a lot of space on your desk. They usually make your desk look ugly and ruin the aesthetics. HP is set to change that perception.
The company’s new Pavilion 24 and 27 AiOs come with eye-catching designs that would fit right in with your desktop’s layout.
The Pavilions manage to do this without being automatically categorized as premium machines. Specs-wise they stay humble. The metal stand allows for plenty of room to swivel and tilt.
Screen and Chassis
The IPS displays feature FHD 1080p resolution with a 178-degree viewing angle, alongside an optional 4K option. The near edge-to-edge display allows up for a good-looking computer, though, the largest variant comes with more visible bezels.
The chassis is 0.33-inch thick at the top (up to 40 percent thinner than the previous generation). The bottom part features the hardware, which obviously makes it thicker than the rest. The displays feature touchscreen panels.
Under the hood, the Pavilion 24 comes with either a seventh-generation Intel Core i5-7400T processor, or a quad-core AMD A12 processor. There’s 12 GB DDR4 memory, as well as 1 TB hard drive.
Its pricier sibling gets the faster i7-7700T with 16 GB of memory and 1 TB hard drive. It even comes with Intel Optane memory, though, it isn’t known whether that’s standard or an add-on. The Radeon 530 graphics card probably won’t win any accolades for speed, but could settle for light gaming.
Other Features and Price
The design also conceals a pop-up camera and microphone for better privacy. It also features support for facial recognition via Windows Hello. The keyboard and mouse have been updated to better blend with the change in design philosophy. Other optional accessories include fabric covered speakers.
As for the price, the All-in-Ones start at $750 and are available for purchase internationally. Hopefully the design will trickle down to the cheaper variants in this line of PCs.
