More often than not the reveals regarding PC’s are most exciting when they involve things like the Surface Book Microsoft revealed yesterday. Today I can happily say that may not be the case. HP have just unveiled their new 34-inch desktop PC and it has caught my eye for several reasons. Behold the HP Envy 34!
The first thing you may notice about the image above is the lack of the giant tower, normally hidden under a table or to the side. That’s because the Envy 34 is an all-in-one PC, this means that your tower and screen are built together into a single item to sit on your desktop. The screen it features it’s not just for show either, as well as being a curved display to help comfort you as you scan from one side of the 3440×1400 resolution screen to another, you’ll be viewing approximately 4.9 million pixels.
HP are proud of the display, citing it offers 99 percent of the SRGB colour gamut. What this means is the colour is pretty close to what it is actually meant to be, a patch of silvery snow colour will appear as silver snow, not white.
Featuring an i5 or i7 Skylake graphics card the PC is set to pack some processing power too, with the option to add a GTX 960A if you want some extra graphics force in your machine. Supporting either 8 or 16GB of DDR4 ram, and anything from a 128GB SSD to a 2TB hard drive you are going to be happy with the memory it comes with, all of which start at $1,800 (Approximately £1175).
All I see when I look at it is the transparent screens from the Minority Report control room, but are you interested in the device? Do you tend to shy away from all-in-one PC’s or are you up for anything that fills the spec?
Thank you PC World for the information and images.
