HP Compaq 8200 Elite all-in-one with Intel vPro technology, $999

HP's Compaq Elite 8200 ordinary looking all-in-one belies the fact its built-in vPro technology gives system admins immense remote control over the machine.

Despite last week's stunner that HP may spinoff its Personal Systems Group, it is (trying to be) business as usual as HP just announced a new all-in-one for the enterprise -- the 8200 Elite.

The HP Compaq 8200 Elite looks like a typical all-in-one computer but sports the new second-generation Intel Core processor with built-in vPro support that makes your system administrators look like a rock star. According to Intel, this CPU offers security features that range from remotely updating workstations to disabling and deleting sensitive data on hard drives over the Internet, if the machines are suspected to be stolen.

Otherwise, the 8200 Elite has most of what you'd expect in an all-in-one combining a 23-inch HD WLED LCD monitor (1920 x 1080) with highly configurable innards that tops out at an Intel Core i7-2600S 2.80 GHz processor, 8 GB RAM, 160 GB solid state hard drive (SSD), Integrated Intel HD Graphic 3000, and an integrated 1.3-megapixel web cam. It offers as many as six USB 2.0 ports, separate microphone and headphone and external speaker jacks, a 6-in-1 card reader and a mini PCIe x1 slot, an Ethernet port but Wi-Fi connectivity with vPro support is optional.

The base model running an Intel Pentium Dual-Core G850 starts at $999 and is available in the U.S. now.
