In the modern hybrid world, the need for people to work collaboratively and securely continues to expand. To provide more choices as it meets those needs, HP has introduced new commercial All-in-One (AiO) and desktop PCs, expanding its portfolio of PCs designed to empower workforces and IT departments in the office or at home. HP AIO shown with keyboard and mouse on a white background The HP EliteOne 800 G9 AiO Desktop PC Enhanced by HP Presence, powered by the latest Intel processors and Windows 11, is aiming to be the command center for your hybrid workspace. Video conferencing is pivotal to making that successful. This AiO comes equipped to deliver a smooth video experience through a 5-megapixel camera (with HP Auto Frame to keep you in the camera’s field of vision), Dynamic Voice Leveling for optimized voice clarity and AI-noise reduction 2.0 for enhanced audio. It’s available with a 23.8-inch or 27-inch display, with clean-desk cable management and a small footprint for your home or office. Users can tackle demanding projects and virtual conferences throughout their workday with Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 for improved connectivity.

With the security of company assets and data always a top concern for IT teams, HP Wolf Security for Business helps protect the AiO PC from modern threats to keep company and user data safe. Additionally, Monitor Mode extends the PC lifecycle by automatically converting the AiO PC into a stand-alone display, giving IT incremental devices to deploy while users gain a secondary monitor without adjusting input settings. The HP Elite 800 G9 Desktop PC Series, also powered by the latest Intel processor and Windows 11, provides adaptable performance, AI-enabled collaboration and strong security and manageability experiences. The HP Elite Mini 800 G9 Desktop PC is small but powerful, tackling intense workflows and handling big files and multi-tasking in the size of a book. Users can connect up to eight displays to increase their digital canvas and productivity. Pair it with an HP E-Series Conferencing Monitor – built fully integrated with a webcam, mic and speakers – and it turns into a collaboration powerhouse. Find out more about these and other HP additions to the portfolio, such as the HP Elite SFF 800 G9 Desktop PC, the HP Elite Tower 800 G9 Desktop PC, the HP Elite 600 G9 Series Desktop PCs and HP Pro 400 G9 Series Desktop PCs.

I absolutely hate all in ones. I know hate is a strong word.
They are a nightmare to service. They all have cooling problems, those displays give off a fair amount of heat and then add to that the CPU, power supply and GPU with no room to have adequate cooling and your own personal computing space heater from hell. A decent set of fans are out of the question, too much noise. Most of the parts are not industry standard design which means if you have to replace anything inside, it's usually proprietary and requires some luck and a trip to eBay for a replacement.
It may be attractive to have an entire package sitting on your desk, but in actuality it's a right dumb idea.
