The HP Pavilion All-in-One 27 comes with 16GB of Intel Optane Memory, making it one of the first PCs to ship with the impressively fast caching storage. Announced Tuesday morning, HP did not provide full pricing, unfortunately, but based on our tests, Optane Memory will make this PC worth every penny.
PC enthusiasts were hoping Optane Memory would come to them first—you can buy it retail for about $44 for the 16GB module and $77 for the 32GB module. The Pavilion All-in-One 27 is just the kind of system for which Intel Optane Memory can make the most difference, though. Even though this unit has just a run-of-the-mill 1TB, 7,200rpm SATA drive, it will feel almost as fast as an SSD when paired with Optane Memory's caching talents.
