Yesterday, HP graced us with a slew of new computers.  And while they unveiled some business models, we’re gonna focus solely on the home all-in-one PCs.

Although the HP Envy 23 and HP Pavilion 23 share similar parts, as well a profoundly confusing name, the Envy 23 takes the cake as it offers a free-standing display with edge-to-edge glass that can be wall-mounted.  It also comes standard with Beats Audio, which in theory adds more kick to your audio experience – color us skeptical, but maybe a review will negate this purported short coming.  For a more HTPC experience you can opt to add an HDMI port, Blu-ray player, and TV tuner, with the caveat of additional cost (but of course).  That all said, both HP AIO machines can be outfitted with AMD or Intel chips and come with full HD 23-inch screens, up to 2TB of storage, HP’s TrueVision HD Webcam, and some HP oriented software to complement your Windows experience.

The HP Envy 23 AIO starts at $949.99, while the HP Pavilion 23 starts at $649.99.  Both models should see shipping come August 2nd at HP’s website, or in retail locations by August 5th.
