HP brings to market the new Envy All-in-One 27 PC with all the guts on an elegant base and a gorgeous display. The new HP AiO is the perfect device for the living room with power to tackle any task.

The HP Envy AiO features an amazing 27-inch Micro Edge display with 9.5mm bezel, QHD resolution (4K resolution will be available later), and only 15mm thick. The display also covers 99 percent of the sRGB color gamut spectrum, and features low blue light mode to help improve eye comfort and better sleep at night.

The device is powered by Intel’s latest Core i5 or Core i7 processor, and optional discrete Nvidia GTX 950M graphics card, which may not be the best solution for games, but it will do great with movies and Photoshop editing.

The sound of the Envy is another worth noting feature, as the device includes a sound bar provided by Bang & Olufsen with four speakers discretely located at the front side for immersive sound. HP Envy All-in-One 27 features all the ports in the back, that way you don’t have to be always seeing cables hanging out of the display.
