Hewlett-Packard has launched a mid-priced, all-in-one PC for small businesses. The Omni Pro 110 is being marketed as a "well-rounded" system that includes a 20-inch, anti-glare diagonal widescreen and integrated stereo speakers, webcam and microphone for video conferencing. The PC has two USB ports on the left of the screen and four in the back. The system is built more for handling productivity applications, such as spreadsheets, documents and presentations, than video editing. The Omni Pro 110 runs Intel's first generation dual-core Core 2 processors and G41 chipset. The latter includes Intel's Graphics Media Accelerator X4500, which enables smooth playback of high-definition video without the need for a separate graphics card. The desktop also runs less expensive processors, such as a dual-core Celeron and a dual-core Pentium. Up to 4 GB of system memory and 1 TB of storage is available, along with a choice of operating systems, including several versions of Windows 7, RedFlag Linux and FreeDOS. The desktop comes with a DVD read/write drive and a six-in-one media card reader. The OmniPro 110's screen has a resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. The system weighs 16.8 pounds and has dimensions of 16 x 20 x 8.6 inches.
