No touching the HP Omnia 27 quad-core All-in-One PC

Computers, Tech Digest news

hp_omni_27_all-in-one.jpgHP are looking to wipe tech fans clean of an lingering TouchPad and webOS memories with the launch of the promising new HP Omnia 27 All-in-One PC.

Featuring a lush, edge-to-edge 27 inch 1080p display, it packs all its innards, including a 2TB hard drive, HDMI input, Blu-ray drive and quad-core Intel processor, into its tabletop chassis.

However, like a prison scene from Arrested Development, there’s no touching allowed with the HP Omnia 27, as that whopping display isn’t touch-enabled. You’ll need to pop into the company’s TouchSmart line if multi-touch gestures and swiping is what you’re after.

Elsewhere, the machine also boasts Beats Audio, Windows 7, 6 USB slots and a multi-card reader, as well as the ability to tilt the screen 25 degrees.

Due out in February in the UK, now pricing for our shores has yet been revealed. Stateside readers however will be able to get their hands on the Omnia 27 from January 8, with prices starting at $1,200 (£767).
