HP has announced the Envy Recline, a touchscreen All-in-One PC series, and the Split x2, a detachable-screen notebook that becomes a tablet.

Recline models feature a pivoting Full HD IPS touchscreen, which is said by HP to make using the screen more comfortable for different users.

The 10-point touchscreen can drop between “traditional” table height and “touch navigation” lap height.

Inside all models of the Recline sits a 4th generation Intel Core i-series processor and NVIDIA graphics. The series also features Near-Field Communication (NFC).

In addition to the standard range of Envy Reclines, a “PC Beats Edition” is available. Changes include red and black design accents and the presence of Beats Audio speakers.

Also announced, the Split x2 is a Windows 8 “two-in one detachable PC”. The notebook’s 13.3-inch screen disconnects to operate as a standalone tablet.

The Split contains a 3rd generation Intel Core processor, dual batteries and Beats Audio, with the option for a hard drive to expand storage. The notebook-tablet also has a two-megapixel Full HD webcam and HP’s multifinger and gesture navigation ImagePad.

The HP Envy Phoenix 810 will add to HP’s desktop line, equipped with an Intel Core i7 Extreme processor, NVIDIA or AMD graphics and Beats Audio.

HP also released details of the Pavilion 23tm, a 23-inch Full HD Windows 8-certified touch monitor with five-point touch technology. Joining the 23tm is the Envy 23 IPS monitor, which has two HDMI ports and an integrated Beats Audio headphone jack.

Printer reveals included the Deskjet 1010, a budget-centric compact printer, the Deskjet 1510 All-in-One, which prints, scans and copies, the Deskjet 2540 All-in-One, a wireless printer and scanner, and the Envy 4500e-All-in-One, a wireless printer with iOS connectivity.

The Envy Recline will be available in the UK in October, starting at £979, with the Beats Edition arriving in November, starting at £999.

The Split x2 and Envy Phoenix 810 also arrive in October, the Split starting at £699 and the Phoenix with a start price of £1,099.

The Pavilion 23tm monitor arrives in September, starting at £319, followed by the launch of the Envy 23 in October at a start price of £199.

All of HP’s announced printers will be available in September, starting at £40 for the 1010, £45 for the 1510, £50 for the 2540 and £70 for the 4500e.
