HP has announced the HP Envy Recline All-in-One PC series with a hinge that lets the screen move below the table and closer to the lap for a natural touch navigation position.
‚”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 Yesh Surjoodeen, PSG Category Manager, HP South Africa . ‚”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 Recline TouchSmart All-in-One PC and HP Envy Recline 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. The HP Envy Recline series meets the needs of touch users with a full high-definition (HD) 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 Recline and HP Envy Recline TouchSmart All-in-One PCs are equipped with 4-generation Intel Core i-series processors and NVIDIA discrete graphics to help users with the most demanding tasks. The HP Envy Recline 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 Recline 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.
