Prior to this evening's announcement of the Pavilion All-In-One MS214, HP has never carried a traditional all-in-one in its desktop lineup. Its TouchSmart line brought touch computing to the all-in-one, but the MS214 is the company's first attempt at a no-frills all-in-one.
We like the looks of the MS214, although its specs are fairly humble. Its 18.5-inch wide-screen display, 1.5GHz Athlon X2 3250e CPU, and 2GB of RAM keep it firmly on the budget-end of the all-in-one scale, as does its $599 starting price. Other features include a DVD burner, a built-in Web cam, and 802.11b/g wireless--in other words all the requisite trappings of the all-in-one category.
HP is not the first to market with a budget all-in-one.
Check out the slideshow below for more shots of the MS214. Expect to see units on store shelves in time for the October 22 launch of Windows 7.
