The folks at HP have certainly picked up a whole lotta press over the past few days, and not always for the most positive reasons mostly due to the unsure future of the mobile and/or PC pieces of HP, but one thing remains clear: the HP PCs that are already made right this moment are popular for a reason, that reason being that they're awesome. What HP is presenting today is the HP Compaq 8200 Elite All-in-One PC, an Intel® 2nd generation Core vPro processor toting space-saving Windows 7 machine made for the full home computing experience.
This PC features a brand new Blu-ray / DVD Writer Drive and a 6-in-1 Media Card Reader for plugging in your camera's contents. You'll be able to expand your memory with the latest DDR3 SDRAM up to 8 GB, work with Intel vPro technology with HP 802.11 a/b/g/n Wireless LAN connectivity, and HP Keyed Cable Lock support for security right alongside an on board TPM 1.2 embedded security chip - lock it up tight!
You'll be rolling out with a 23-inch diagonal LED HD LCD monitor with 1920 x 1080 resolution; 1000:1 contrast ratio; 250 nits typical image brightness; 160 degrees vertical viewing angle; and 170 degrees horizontal viewing angle. This complete with webcam, microphone, and built-in SRS Premium Sound audio support and integrated high-performance 2.0 speakers. Microsoft Office 2010 is preloaded, Purchase Key, Norton Internet Security 2010 trial, and PDF Complete Corporate Edition will also be included out of the box. You'll have many options for what you'll be working with as far as innards go - for example your processor could be any of the following:
Intel® Core™ i7-2600S (2.80 GHz, 8 MB cache, 4 cores)
Intel® Core™ i5-2500S (2.70 GHz, 6 MB cache, 4 cores)
Intel® Core™ i5-2400S (2.50 GHz, 6 MB cache, 4 cores)
Intel® Core™ i5-2500T (2.30 GHz, 6 MB cache, 4 cores)
Intel® Core™ i5-2390T (2.70 GHz, 3 MB cache, 2 cores)
Intel® Core™ i3-2120 (3.30 GHz, 3 MB cache, 2 cores)
Intel® Core™ i3-2105 (3.10 GHz, 3 MB cache, 2 cores)

This along with Integrated Intel HD Graphics or Integrated Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000. There's SIX USB 2.0 ports, headphone jack, microphone in jack, audio line out, and RJ-45 port. Now you've only got to decide whether you want this to be your next all-in-one PC or if you'll be going with the massive laptop option.
