Hewlett-Packard Co. today offered a new desktop computer only days after disclosing plans to sell or spin off its PC unit, and billed it as the “industry’s first all-in-one” system both for its technology features and its intended appeal to business and public sector customers.

The unit, dubbed the HP Compaq 8200 Elite All-in-One Business Desktop, is priced at $999 and features Intel Corp.'s second generation Core VPro technology, the Intel Q67 Express chipset, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and Hyper-Threading Technology for improved integrated graphics multi-tasking.

HP said that it is aiming the system, which also offers security tools to protect critical business data and supports up to 8 GB of SDRAM, at enterprise, mid-market and public sector customers. The unit also has remote management features and integrated collaboration tools.

“Another industry first in our Elite desktop family demonstrates our commitment to engineering excellence and underscores our global leadership in secure, enterprise computing,” said Jeff Groudan, HP director, Commercial Desktop Marketing.

“The HP Compaq 8200 Elite All-in-One delivers outstanding hardware and software innovation to move the needle in the all-in-one category,” he said.

HP is backing the units with a standard three-year warranty for parts, labor and next day, on-site services. HP Elite Premium Support, which features dedicated technical professionals, is available with the extended warranty HP Total Care and HP Care Pack Services.
