Chances are, your current PC looks nothing like this one. HP's new Envy all-in-one includes an enormous 34-inch curved screen, alongside solid internals and a simple, attractive design.
The Envy Curved All-in-One is all about the display experience. The 34-inch screen has 3,440 x 1,440 resolution, offering 99 percent of the sRGB color gamut for accurate color reproduction. According to HP, the 21:9 aspect ratio makes for an immersive viewing experience.
The Windows 10-running system will ship with a choice of Intel Core i5 and i7 chips, 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM and either integrated graphics or an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960A GPU. Storage options include a 2 TB HDD and a 128 GB SSD, and there's an Intel RealSense Camera up front with Windows Hello compatibility.
The focus is clearly on that huge display, but the audio has also been taken into consideration, with a total of six Bang & Olufsen speakers installed. There's also HDMI-in functionality here, allowing you to use the machine as an external display.
Curved panels are pretty standard nowadays, but we're used to seeing them on TV sets, not all-in-ones. It's not the first system we've seen the feature on such a system – Samsung outed a 27-inch all-in-one earlier this year – but its size and aspect ratio make it quite the interesting beast.
The 34-inch Envy Curved All-in-One will launch in November, starting at US$1,800. There are also new 24 and 27-inch Envy AiOs with flat panels on the way, with optional AMD Radeon R7 and R9 graphics inside. They're set to ship in November, starting at $1,000 and $1,200, respectively.
