It’s become the standard for many in creative industries to have a workspace built around two monitors. Such a setup gives them a much wider display, and therefore a far bigger area on which to complete their work. But wouldn’t it be great if such a workspace could be accomplished with just a single monitor? HP certainly thinks so, which is why the brand has unveiled the world’s first all-in-one computer with a 34” 5K display.
The new HP ENVY 34 All-in-One PC was made for creators, by creators, and it shows. The display is the obvious star here, with its 34” diagonal span, 21:9 aspect ratio, and ultra-brilliant 5K resolution with true color accuracy and anti-reflective coating. A display that big certainly has the potential to replace a two-monitor desktop setup, but it’s hardly the only aspect of the new ENVY that’s aimed at creators. There’s a clever embedded wireless charging pad built into the stand, and just take a look at all of these ports: two USB-A, two SuperSpeed USB Type-A, two Thunderbolt 4 with USB4 Type-C, USB-C, media memory card reader, headphone/microphone, and gigabit ethernet. Another world-first on the ENVY 34 is the detachable magnetic webcam that can be placed anywhere on the display for a more custom view. The camera also features advanced sensors and HP Enhanced Lighting tech to help you avoid the dreaded “Zoom look.” Finally, powering all of this fancy hardware is an 11th Gen 8-core Intel Core i9 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card — another first for an all-in-one.
The ENVY 34 isn’t available yet, but rest assured that when it arrives, the machine will support the just-announced Windows 11, so no worries there. With pricing starting at $1,999, the ENVY 34 All-in-One PC is expected to go on sale at HP’s website in early October.
