The HP ENVY All-in-One is built to be affordable and fuel creativity allowing customers to render, edit, stream, and broadcast content. It enables content creators with latest generation processors that are powerful and efficient. Based on human factors and user interviews, it has a wide 21:9 aspect ratio.

  • HP Design interviewed users in major metropolitan cities. We found that users want wider screens, deeper black point, and a computer that doesn't get slow over time. They want ports, and a good camera, but don't value high quality audio - if they need to work with audio, they'll use headphones or their own high quality studio monitor speakers.

  • The HP Envy All-in-One has a wide 21:9 aspect ratio touchscreen, to help our users be more productive. Instead of speakers in a chin below the display, moved audio out of the field of view of the user, and made the screen have a minimal chin for a 3 sided near-borderless display. Because creative users need a capable camera, the 16 megapixel camera attaches anywhere on the border of the screen using magnets. It can be repositioned to be closer to the user's video call, or even aim down at the desk to share documents.

  • HP Design built a machine that is the expression of our passion for the creative user. We built it not just solve their problems, but to help them tear down any barriers that prevent them from expressing themselves. HP is committed to sustainable manufacturing, and for this reason, the wide-screen all-in-one uses recycled plastics in a number of its components.

  • The HP ENVY All in One uses HP Enhanced Lighting to create soft lighting to improve the camera image from unused areas on the display. It's possible to crop the content on the display, and use the sides, border, or ring shape running at full brightness to light the face for a better image on camera.
