HP has announced a bold new all-in-one that’s sure to strike up conversation from virtually everyone that sees it.
As its name implies, the HP Envy Curved All-in-One PC puts a massive 34-inch curved display with a resolution of 3,440 x 1,440 and aspect ratio of 21:9 front and center. HP claims it’s the world’s widest curved AIO and the first to receive Technicolor certification. It also offers 99 percent of the sRGB color gamut.
The display is flanked by six speakers tuned by audio partner Bang & Olufsen. Buyers can select from either an Intel i5 or i7 Skylake processor, up to an Nvidia GTX 960 graphics card, as much as 16GB of RAM and a variety of hard drives and solid state drives. Regardless of choice, Windows 10 comes pre-installed.
While the display no doubt looks impressive, some may not find the large perimeter bezels appealing. The rig probably isn’t ideal for hardcore gamers given its limited GPU processing power and resolution (we also don’t yet know the exact specifications of the panel type) although for working types, this amount of real estate could afford a serious boost to productivity without having to add additional monitors.
The HP Envy Curved All-in-One goes on sale next month starting at $1,799.99.
