HP’s New Pavilions Bring Style, Productivity to All-in-One Desktops

HP’s Pavilion line isn’t known for delivering industry-leading power. Rather, it’s a trendsetter for HP, allowing the company to deliver decent features at a price that both consumers and corporate users on a budget find appealing. HP once again illustrated that balance between features and price July 25, when it released two new Pavilion all-in-one desktops. The computers come with ample power from their Intel Core i7 processors and include nifty features that enhance privacy. But they ultimately stand out because they offer compelling designs that put front and center what you need to get work done. This slide show will highlight the features that could make these new desktops worth a closer look.

The New Models Have Different Desktop Footprints

The new HP Pavilion all-in-one machines come with different designs. One features a rather large black bezel around the screen, making it notably larger than its alternative, which has an exceedingly thin bezel around the display. That design allows HP to reduce its footprint without sacrificing screen size.
