Omni, Touchsmart, Envy, (TouchPad) – HP just can't make up its mind what to call new computers and laptops. This time round, it's plumped for Envy and Pavilion monikers for these new 23in desktop all-in-one models but who knows what the next lot will be called.
In the meantime, these new HP PCs look like worthy contenders for a spot on our desk: both are available with Intel Ivy Bridge processors and sport respectable, though not eye-popping, 1080p (non touchscreen) displays.
The Envy 23's design looks pretty sexy (in keeping with the laptop series) with edge-to-edge glass and Beats Audio thrown in for good measure. So it's not all work for the HP user – there's also the option to pay for HDMI-in, a Blu-ray drive and a TV tuner on board so it could easily be the only screen you need in your bedroom for instance. It will be available from the 13th of August and pricing will start at around $1799
The Pavilion 23 has the same 1920 x 1080 screen as the Envy and also comes with up to 2TB of hard drive storage – but there's a plastic stand to keep the price down compared to the Envy 23's 'floating' looks and there's no option to pay extra for a touchscreen. It will come with either AMD or Intel processors and is set to hit shelves in October for around $799.
