hp announces new envy recline all in ones and monitors at ifa hpenvyrecline

HP has made a number of product announcements at IFA today, beginning with a new line of Envy Recline all-in-one computers. Successors to the TouchSmart series, the Envy Recline 23, 23SE, and 27 offer a unique hinge that tilts forward to provide users a more immersive touch experience. The stand can even fold entirely over itself, positioning the screen at the edge of a desk or table for touch use while sitting or standing.

As their names suggest, Envy Recline models will be available with either a 23-inch or 27-inch displays, while the 23 SE (Special Edition) throws in Beats audio and is accented by red and black rather than same-old silver. All models come with 4th-gen Intel Core processors, Nvidia 730A discrete graphics, 1TB of storage, and a 1080p LED-backlit display.

HP Envy and Pavilion monitors

Consumers looking to add touch to an existing computer are covered by HP’s new Pavilion 23tm touch monitor, a 23-inch 1080p, IPS, 10-point touchscreen display that offers a built-in reclining kickstand. Users can also attach it to any standard VESA mount stand. Front-facing speakers are packaged in the monitor, but it’s not part of the Beats Audio brand.

Those who don’t want touch are catered to by the new Envy 23 monitor, an IPS display with Beats Audio. The display, which also offers IPS technology and 1080p resolution, boasts a small-footprint stand that tilts but does not recline. Despite its name, there are no built-in speakers – only a “Beats Audio integrated” headphone jack.

HP Envy Phoenix 810

Lastly, HP is targeting gamers with its new Envy Phoenix 810 desktop, which brings the Envy and Phoenix brands together for the first time. A standard tower, the 810 offers Core i7 Extreme Edition processors and either Nvidia or AMD graphics. From the information available thus far, this could mark a return to the high-end gaming market for HP. The company’s most recent gaming desktops, though adequate, were generally restricted to middle-tier processors and graphics cards.

Pricing and availability for all products remained unannounced. These details will be made available on HP’s The Next Bench blog.
