Its fate still somewhat uncertain as it appears less likely that it will find a suitor, the HP PC business continues to pump out new products. Today it unleashes a slew of new all-in-one desktops at varying price points and for both home and business customers.
At the low end, the Omni 120 includes a 20-inch screen, 750GB hard drive, and processor options from AMD and Intel, while the Omni 220 comes with a 21.5-inch screen and select configurations with integrated Beats Audio and Intel Sandy Bridge quad-core processors. The 120 will be available on the 21st starting at $399.99 and the 220 on the 11th from $799.99.
There are also three new TouchSmart lines for home consumers: the 20-inch 320, 21.5-inch 420, and 23-inch 520. Their screens rotate 30 degrees in order to make it easier to use the touchscreen interface, and all feature integrated Beats Audio. The company has even rolled out a HP Pulse Subwoofer to pair with the 520 (or the already available TouchSmart 610). The 320 is due October 2 starting at $599.99, and the 420 and 520 on the 11th starting at $699.99 and $899.99, respectively.
Finally, small businesses will get two new all-in-ones. The TouchSmart Elite 7320 packs a 21.5-inch LED-backlit display, your choice of Sandy Bridge processor (Core i3, i5, or i7), and the HP TouchSmart Suite of biz apps. The Pro 3420 eschews the touchscreen but includes, according to HP's press release, "integrated webcams and premium stereo speakers for instant face-to-face communication with remote employees." You get a choice of Core i3 processors, up to 8GB of memory and 2TB of storage, and HP ProtectTools security suite. The Elite 7320 starts at $850 and will be available on the 21st, while the Pro 3420 is expected in October for $599 and up.
