They offer a hinge designed for more comfortable touch positioning
Hewlett-Packard (HP) revealed the ENVY Recline
all-in-one (AIO) PC series
today, which touts an immersive touch experience and enhanced design.
There are three members of the ENVY Recline family: the HP ENVY Recline23 TouchSmart All-in-One PC; the HP ENVY Recline23 TouchSmart All-in-One PC Beats Edition, and the HP ENVY Recline27 TouchSmart All-in-One PC.
Before getting into the specifics of each machine, it's important to note that HP calls it the "Recline" series because it does just that -- it reclines in such a way that touch users are more comfortable using it in various positions. HP even conducted a study on touch users, and found that they prefer their screens to be in a low and close position.
The series meets those needs with a hinge that allows the screen to easily move below the table and closer to the lap for a natural touch position. It can also be adjusted upright for traditional use.
The ENVY Recline23 TouchSmart AIO sports a 23-inch display, an Intel Core i7processor, 8GB of memory, 1TB storage capacity, NVIDIA discrete graphics and 10-point touch. It will be available September 6 for $1349 (retailers will have other configurations in September starting at $999).
The ENVY Recline23 TouchSmart AIO Beats Edition differs in that it has black and red accents with Beats Audio driven dual speakers for an enhanced audio experience. It also has an Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of memory. It will be available in November for a starting price of $1249.
As for the ENVY Recline27 TouchSmart All-in-One PC, it will sport a lot of the same features as the Recline23, such as 4th-generation Intel Core™ i-series processors, 10-point touch and NVIDIA discrete graphics. It will, however, offer NFC as well for the sharing of photos and contacts. It has a screen size of 27 inches, 12GB RAM and 1016 storage capacity. It will be available September 6 for a starting price of $1399.

Having used a Lenovo Horizon series AIO before, I can say that the reclining feature is hit or miss. Valuable to a narrow audience. The viewing angles have to be very generous otherwise you are shifting about trying to get the best view. I could never get comfortable and strangely did not find the drawing on the screen as cool as I thought it would be. It is useful for some photo/graphics work, but is nowhere near as sensitive and useful as some of the Wacom solutions. Good screen brightness, resolution, and color accuracy will trump this gimmick. Discrete graphics are marginally useful at best. A very narrowly functional device for a narrow market. Kids with paint? Don't expect to see many folks trading in their iMacs and Wacom tablets for these.

If you havethe money for a Cinteq, or however the Wacom with the screen is spelled, then you are probably not in the target market for an AIO anyway. More like a workstation and a professional display. That does not negate anything I said about comparing this PC to an iMac.
