It seems like the PC market doesn’t get as much headline time as the laptop market does. But laptops aren’t the only ones that get to sport high-end internal hardware, and sexy curves. HP has been working hard on its PC line, with most of the improvements seen in its all-in-one desktops. When it comes to the HP Envy 34, there’s an all around luxury factor going on here. Featuring a 34-inch curved display monitor as its star feature, you’ve never owned a PC like this.
When you first see the HP Envy 34, you immediately want to know what’s going on with that monitor. Well, this 34-inch diagonal glass display is as upscale as it looks, with an ISP display for wide-viewing angles, a 2,000 mm curved radius, and a 3440 x 1440 resolution (that’s 4.9 million pixels and a 21:9 aspect ratio). It offers 99 percent of the sRGB color gamut, as well as Technicolor certification. It even sports Intel’s RealSense Camera for 3D functionality. Finally, if you haven’t noticed, it also sits on 4, rather adorable looking curved feet.
HP does anything but skimp on the internal hardware here, featuring Intel’s latest CPU, the 6th gen Skylake dual-core, in either Core i5 or Core i7, plus the option of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 960A for graphics. It comes with Windows 10 out of the box (featuring Windows Hello for “fast face authentication instead of written passwords”), 8GB or 16GB memory options, up to 2TB of storage, and the optional 128GB SSD (Tech Times). If you’d rather a touchscreen option, you’ll have to lose the luxury of the curved 34-inch screen, and settle with either a 23.8 or 27-inch flat screen, touch-enabled AIO version. These versions feature the same Intel processing power, but AMD Radeon graphics instead of Nvidia GeForce (Slash Gear).
Additionally, you’ll find six speakers tuned by Bang & Olufsen, three HDMI ports, two USB 2.0’s, a total of four USB 3.0’s (two in the back, two underneath the front edge), ethernet, and a media card reader. These HDMI’s will sure come in handy for game lovers out there, who could easily connect their consoles to the beautiful display for better viewing angles during their gaming session. The HP Envy 34 is expected to hit the consumer market by November 8th, with prices from $1,799.99 and up. Those AIO options start at just $1,000 and $1,199.99 for the 23.8 and 27-inch models, respectively.
