It’s very appropriate that HP named their curved all-in-one computer after one of the seven deadly sins—Envy. This computer will have coworkers, friends, and even family members turning every shade of green.
It’s the screen that first attracts people’s attention. The stylish curve does more than just look good, it also provides an ergonomic function to help make hours sitting in front of it more enjoyable. The screen measures 34 inches, which factors into the vision of having a curved screen. According to HP, the curve helps to make every horizontal point of the screen equidistant from your eyes. Each of those points comes in at an impressive resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels.
HP also invested in the technicolour-certified colour reproduction as well as an ultra-intense brightness.
That screen sits atop a box that also serves as the housing for the CPU, which will also be a source of envy. The All-in-One comes with a 2.9GHz Core i7 that is backed up with 16 gigs of RAM and dual storage drives that include a 256 gigabyte SSD and a terabyte hard drive. For the screen’s graphics, the computer relies on an AMD Radeon RX 460 graphics card.
There are also plenty of ports, including a USB-C port, four standard USB ports, an Ethernet port, and SD card slot, and an HDMI in and out. With the HDMI port, you can use the Envy as a screen for your gaming or entertainment platforms. While everything has been slimmed down, you will still have to deal with a giant brick on the power cord, but that’s still doable.
Envy does come with a mouse and keyboard, and this might be the one area that you may have to consider finding something else to go along with this envy-worthy setup. After all, if you’re going to invest in a computer that will have people committing a deadly sin, you don’t want to detract from its lethality with a less than desirable keyboard and mouse. The good news is that HP already has some great options for you to choose from.
