HP's newest all-in-ones, the ENVY Recline 23 and 27, are unlike anything we've ever seen. The PCs actually fold back and can even hang off the edge of a desk to bring the touchscreen closer to a users hands.
Both the 23-inch and the 27-inch models feature 1920 x 1080 Full HD touchscreens, a choice of Intel Haswell processors (up to Core i7), NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M discrete graphics, up to 16 GB RAM, up to a 1 TB hard drive, Beats Audio, 802.11 ac wifi, 2 USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, and an Ethernet port. The 27-inch version also has NFC.
While unusual, the demo video certainly makes the new design look appealing. There are other touch enabled AIOs on the market that blur the line between desktop and tablet (including Sony's recently announced VAIO Tap 21), but HP has gone in a different direction and decided to offer a more evolved desktop experience that doesn't try to be portable.
The ENVY Recline 23 and 27 TouchSmart all-in-one PCs will be available on September 6th. Prices start at US$999 for the 23-inch model and US$1399 for the 27-inch model. A Beats Edition of the 23-inch model with a red hinge will also be available in November for US$1099 and up.
HP Unveils Most Natural All-in-One Touch PC Experience
Beats Audio special-edition all-in-one PC offers bold design, premium sound
PALO ALTO, Calif. — HP today announced the HP ENVY Recline All-in-One PC series, offering the best, most immersive touch experience available on an All-in-One PC.
With an innovative product design, HP’s new All-in-One PCs allow users to pivot the touch screen lower and closer, making the interaction more accessible and comfortable.
“Customers have told us that they want touch on their PCs, and at HP we’re always looking for ways to improve the experience,” said Mike Nash, vice president, Product Management, Consumer PCs and Consumer Solutions, HP. “HP’s family of reclining all-in-one PCs offer new ways to stay productive and enjoy immersive experiences such as movies and games with the most natural touch experience available.”
Immersive touch PCs look great, sound great, feel great
The HP ENVY Recline23 TouchSmart All-in-One PC and HP ENVY Recline27 TouchSmart All-in-One PC, HP’s most immersive touchscreen PCs, feature 10-point touch and a revolutionary adjustable design that allows for a more comfortable experience and greater control than ever before.
An HP study revealed that while using touch screens, an overwhelming majority of people preferred their screen in a low and close position for 100 percent of touch-related tasks.(1) The HP ENVY Recline series meets the needs of touch users with a full high-definition (HD)(2) IPS touch screen that responds to all 10 fingers at once, and a unique hinge that allows the screen to be repositioned with ease. The hinge enables the screen to seamlessly move below the table and closer to the lap for a natural touch navigation position, or it can be adjusted upright for traditional use and to watch movies.
Both the HP ENVY Recline23 and HP ENVY Recline27 TouchSmart All-in-One PCs are equipped with 4th-generation Intel® Core™ i-series processors and NVIDIA discrete graphics to help users with the most demanding tasks. The HP ENVY Recline27 also features Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to let users share photos, contacts and URLs with a simple tap.
Additionally, HP is offering a new All-in-One PC with a bold design and premium sound for entertainment and music enthusiasts. The HP ENVY Recline23 TouchSmart All-in-One PC Beats Edition features black and red accents with Beats Audio™ driven dual speakers for the best-sounding, richest audio experience available on a PC.

Affordable touch display is easy on the eyes and the wallet
Optimized for touch navigation, the new HP Pavilion 23tm Touch Monitor provides a comfortable and clear visual experience at a price that is more affordable than many Windows® 8-certified (3) touch monitors. Featuring a 23-inch vivid full-HD touch screen with five-point touch technology, wide viewing angles and an adjustable stand that allows users to tilt the monitor to a 70-degree deep recline position, the HP Pavilion 23tm enriches the computing experience.
The HP Pavilion 23tm Touch Monitor can pair with the HP ENVY Phoenix 810 Desktop PC for outstanding gaming, photo editing, productivity and comfort. The HP ENVY Phoenix 810 Desktop PC includes a lightning-fast Intel Core i7 Extreme Processor, NVIDIA discrete graphics or AMD ultra-high-performance graphics, and Beats Audio.
HP also announced the HP ENVY 23 IPS Monitor, a sleek, ultrathin monitor with two HDMI ports for connectivity across a variety of devices, including mobile phones and tablets. The monitor also enhances the listening experience with an integrated Beats Audio headphone jack.(4)
