Look Upon HP's New AIO PCs With Envy

HP announced that a new series of AIO PCs are coming soon. These new PCs fall into the HP Envy product line and will be available in models ranging from 23.8 to 34 inches in size.

The 34-inch AIO announced by HP is the HP Envy Curved AIO, and it comes loaded with an array of new features. As the name suggests, this system is curved to simulate an immersive experience.

Coming with Windows 10 pre-installed, the system also features Windows Hello, which will allow users to lock and sign into their system using face authentication. An Intel RealSense camera is also included, which enables an array of new functions, such as gesture controls and in-depth 3D video capture.

The 23.8- and 27-inch systems are not curved, but they have a 4K display option, which will arguably be more valuable to some users. These systems do not include the RealSense camera.

All of these AIOs will use similar internal hardware and will run the new Intel 6th Gen (Skylake) Core i5 and i7 processors. Basic configurations will use Intel's integrated graphics, but users can opt to have AMD Radeon R9 graphics on the 23.8- and 27-inch models.

The 34-inch curved system can optionally have an Nvidia GeForce 960A. Storage options will range from a 128 GB SSD up to a 2 TB HDD. HP didn't state if DDR3L or DDR4 RAM would be used inside of these systems, but all systems will contain either 8 GB or 16 GB of memory.

The 23.8- and 27-inch models will also include four front-facing speakers, whereas the 34-inch system contains a total of six speakers, including two tweeters.
