  • HP Compaq Elite 8300

    HP has unveiled four new Ivy Bridge-based all-in-one PCs, two of them aimed squarely at businesses.

    The all-in-ones were introduced on Monday. The Compaq Elite 8300, pictured here, is the top-of-the-range model.

    The Elite 8300 has a 23-inch, optionally multitouch-capable screen, and buyers can choose to add a two-megapixel webcam and dual microphones. It can come with discrete or 'Intel HD' graphics, and its use of Intel Core vPro processors pitches it squarely at the enterprise crowd.

    HP has suggested that the PC's multitouch abilities also make the all-in-one suitable for hospitals, making it easy for patients to "conveniently enter personal data", or for interactive retail displays.

    The starting price for the Elite 8300 will be $879 (£567), though the multitouch variant will begin at $929, and it is due to be released on 10 September.

    HP Compaq Pro 6300

    The second business-oriented PC in HP's new line-up is the Compaq Pro 6300.

    Unlike the Elite 8300, the Pro 6300 is not touch-capable. It also has a slightly smaller screen, measuring 21.5 inches on the diagonal.

    However, the Pro 6300 does come with an array of HP enterprise tools, such as face recognition, disk and file 'sanitisers', BIOS protection and hard-drive encryption.

    The Pro 6300 will be available at a starting price of $799 from 3 September.

  • HP Envy 23

    The more expensive of the two consumer models unveiled on Monday is the HP Envy 23 all-in-one, which has a starting price of $950.

    Scheduled to go on sale from 2 August, the Envy 23 has a 23-inch screen and comes with various entertainment-centric features such as Beats Audio, Blu-ray and a TV tuner.

  • Nice... This device is distinctive enough to actually NOT be brought into

    court by Apple yet in it's own way pays homage to the iMac I like it:) If only companies like Samsung were as clever.

  • Samsung is clearly clever enough

    http://news.softpedia.com/news/UK-Court-Decides-Samsung-s-Tablets-Aren-t-iPad-Copies-280115.shtml

    "To give the court even more credit, it “dismissed Apple’s arguments by referring to approximately 50 examples of prior art, or designs that were previously created or patented, from before 2004."

    Oops.

    • Yeah one judges opinon and I' seem to recall there have been many such and

      over all Apple is doing well enough in these cases. There are wins and looses on both sides as I understand it. This one goes to Samsung the next who knows?

      • It isn't opinion, this is law, this is fact

        The fact is, the law is, the court's decision is: Samsung does not copy Apple. There can be no arguing about this. It is stated fact. End of story. Apple has been proven to reuse prior art, patent it, and then sue others. And lose.

        • Yeah except for all those cases Apple has actually won in other courts I'd

          you have a point but since there are numerous decisions in other courts and other countries I can't give you that one:P I'd also say based on the judges statements and such there will be an appeal filed by Apple... The fat lady has yet to sing.

          Now back to my original point HP made a very nice device an all in one that is distinctive enough and unique as to avoid a law suite by Apple but how could this be so? After all an iMac is but a rectangle on a pedestal and yet there it is!?! How could they manage to be different one rectangle on a pedestal from another? How did they manage that is it a miracle or something!?!

          • Sorry that you lost James, I know you identify closely with Apple

            "Yeah except for all those cases Apple has actually won in other courts"

            The final rulings have all gone against Apple. Even worse, in some of those cases, those courts have actually taken away Apple's patents, ruling them to be invalid.

            http://www.electronicsweekly.com/Articles/05/07/2012/54052/htc-invalidates-three-apple-patents.htm

            The judge rules that 3 out of the 4 patents were invalid and should never have been granted to Apple in the first place. The judge did not provide a ruling on the 4th patent declaring that it was not relevant in this case. In other words, Apple failed to validate a single one of their patents in this case.

            Ouch.

          • You said it yourself "in this case"

            The case was in England right? So that means what in the rest of the world? Nice piece you've provided but I've read many such and they go across the board as to Apple'ssuccess in this venture in fact was there not an article on how the costs to Apple for these cases is minimal and to date have more than paid for themselves right hereon ZDnet like a month or so ago?
