Prices to start at $1,299.

HP today announced a new lineup of Windows 8-ready machines, kicking off with their premium Spectre lineup and the Spectre One.

The Spectre One is the first non-notebook model in the linup, and measures just 11.5mm thick, making it the slimmest AIO that HP has produced yet. Surprisingly though, the Spectre One doesn’t feature a touchscreen in order to keep the unit as thin as possible, and instead bundles with a large multitouch wireless track pad. The Spectre One will also include for the first time an NFC chip in its base, which allows for instant logon and authentication by swiping a configured smartphone or NFC tag.

The 23.6 inch Nvidia-powered display clocks a resolution of 1,920×1,080, which is large enough for Windows 8 to look mighty pretty. However the Spectre One doesn’t have an optical drive or TV Tuner card, so anyone looking to turn this into some kind of media machine might be disappointed.

The Spectre One will start from $1,299 and should be available in US markets in November.
