HP has unveiled its latest all-in-one (AIO) PC, which features a larger and wider screen, smaller bezels, and the latest Intel and NVIDIA components. The Envy 34 All-in-One desktop PC now includes a 5K (5,120 x 2,160) widescreen 21:9 flat IPS display with 500 nits of brightness and 98 per cent coverage of the DCI-P3 colour spectrum.
It’s also more streamlined, with smaller bezels, and no longer has the previous model’s large B&O speaker on the bottom. The new display makes use of Windows 11’s “Snap Layouts,” which make it easier to rearrange your desktop to view multiple windows.
It also has a detachable 16-megapixel camera with binning technology that you can move to different locations on your screen depending on the angle you want. Another cool feature is wireless charging pads built into the stand, which allows you to charge your smartphone simply by placing it there.
It should perform admirably thanks to an Intel 11th-generation Core-i9 processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max Q graphics, the latter of which is said to be the first in an AIO.
It also has up to 32GB of RAM, 512GB of NVMe storage, an embedded power supply design, a pair of B&O speakers, a pair of Thunderbolt 4 USB4 Type-C ports (with data rates of up to 40Gbps), and HDMI output.
The HP Envy 34 All-in-One PC will be available in October 2021, with a starting price of $1,999. If you don’t require such a high-end model, HP also unveiled the Pavilion AIO with an AMD Ryzen 5000 processor and a maximum screen size of 27 inches starting at $799.
HP also introduced a couple of intriguing displays. The first is the HP U32 4K HDR monitor, relatively large creators monitor at a reasonable price. It employs an IPS panel and adheres to the VESA DisplayHDR 400 standard, ensuring that it meets VESA’s minimum brightness requirements.
It also has a 10-bit panel (8-bit + AFRC) with a billion colours, a refresh rate of 60 Hz, Delta E2 colour accuracy, and USB-C power delivery. It appears to be a lot of monitors for $500 and will be available in October 2021.
Last but not least is HP’s M34d WQHD curved monitor. With a 34-inch 3,440 x 1,440 100Hz 21:9 widescreen display, this one is more focused on productivity.
It has integrated speakers and DisplayPort/HDMI inputs, as well as the USB-C power delivery and it has internal speakers, which is unusual for a stand-alone monitor. The HP M34d WQHD curved monitor is now available for $530 on HP.com.
