Hewlett-Packard introduced an all-in-one desktop PC for small businesses looking for a computer to fit in a space-constrained office.

The HP Pro MS200, unveiled Monday, comes with an 18.5-inch diagonal screen that tilts and swivels, a DVD burner and built-in webcam. HP is offering a 60-day trial of its Virtual Rooms service for hosting virtual meetings and video-enabled chat.

The MS200 also includes an Athlon dual-core processor and ATI Radeon 3200 graphics card from Advanced Micro Devices. Other components include a 250 GB hard drive, built-in Wi-Fi and Microsoft Windows 7 Professional.

HP is marketing the system as a stylish, small-footprint machine for space-constrained cubicles, executive conference rooms, schools, nurse stations and hotel lobbies. "HP has seen a growing customer demand for all-in-one PCs to simplify set-up and streamline workplace environments," Alan Reed, VP and general manager of business desktops at HP's Personal Systems Group, said in a statement.

The MS200, which complies with Energy Star 5.0 standards, has a starting price of $699.

The new product expands HP's all-in-one PC portfolio for small businesses. In October, the company unveiled a slate of new business-focused PCs in anticipation of Microsoft's Windows 7 launch. The systems included the multi-touch TouchSmart 9100 for customer-facing environments, such as hotels or banks.

HP also introduced entry-level enterprise laptops called the ProBook 6545b and 6445b, and the first of a new small business line called HP Elite.

In March, the company unveiled new business ink-jet printers, scanners and fax machines, and new support options.
