One of the bigger leg-ups that iMac desktop computers have on the competition is their design. Slim and refined, Apple’s desktops embrace contemporary style without sacrificing capability. It would appear that Hewlett Packard has taken note, because with their upcoming release, the Envy All-in-one Computer, it looks like the brand is finally targeting those very characteristics that make their competitor stand out – all while trying to offer just a bit more.
Rather than a separate tower, the base of the desktop houses all of the PC’s inner workings – which includes 4 built-in USB 3.0 ports, an Intel Core i7 processor, and up to 16GB of RAM. They’ve also partnered with Bang & Olufsen to include a high-end, custom-tuned, quad HP speaker sound system. And on top of the computer base is mounted a 27-inch diagonal floating glass Micro Edge display upon a thin metal stand – which is equipped with an HD IR privacy camera that only pops up when in use.
