HP refreshes Pavilion portfolio with new all-in-one PCs, x360 convertible tablets, tower | VentureBeat | Business | by Jordan Novet
HP is today pulling the covers off several new Pavilion laptops for consumers, as well as new Pavilion all-in-one PCs and a Pavilion PC tower that’s as powerful as an earlier model but 30 percent smaller. Each of these new devices runs Windows 10 out of the box.
The new all-in-ones have some compelling options. For the 23.8-inch model starting at $699.99, there’s a new “micro edge display” option that shrinks the bezels down from 26mm to 6.4mm. With this option included, the PC is reminiscent of a modern television display.
But that’s not all. You can also choose to have the 23.8-inch model — or the 27-inch model starting at $999.99 — equipped with a new “Privacy Camera.” It’s a rectangular piece of plastic that sits nestled inside the device on the top edge, just behind the display. When you push down on it, it pops up, revealing a camera and a microphone. You hear the sound of Windows 10 recognizing that components have been connected. When you’re done using the camera, you just push down the piece of camera-bearing plastic to return it to its place, and you hear the sound signaling that the mic and camera have been disconnected.
