HP Envy Rove 20-K014us Mobile All-in-One

 

The HP Rove 20-K014us portable all-in-one desktop PC has both the innovations and problems that come with being a first-generation product in a nascent category.

Portable around the house. Huge screen for a portable. Ultrabook performance in a tablet form factor. Wi-Di compatible. Dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. Comes with Monopoly and other touch games

Limited ports. Uncomfortable wireless keyboard. Not full 1080p HD. Somewhat hefty. Lots of pre-loaded software

The HP Rove 20-K014us ($979.99 list) is a portable all-in-one desktop PC. That means that it has a huge 20-inch screen and has some of the benefits of a desktop and some benefits of a portable tablet. It's meant to be carried around your home or...

HP Envy Rove 20 review

 

Does more mean better? In technology, the answer isn't always clear, but consumer interest in large phones and large televisions has certainly spurred renewed faith in the idea of going big. Looking back from today, it's hard to believe that a decade...

Quality display ; Decent bundled peripherals ; Less expensive than similar competition

Mundane design ; Too heavy and bulky for tablet use ; Short battery life ; Disappointing performance ; Not a good value

Though relatively inexpensive and boasting a good display, the HP Envy Rove 20 remains a poor value. Consumers can buy a 20-inch all-in-one and a tablet for less than this PC’s base price.

HP ENVY Rove 20 Review

 

Is it a tablet, or an All-in-One PC, or some hybrid of the two? The HP ENVY Rove 20 walks the line in-between, a 20-inch desktop that, thanks to an onboard battery, can make the trip from home office, to kitchen, to bedroom, and back without...

The portable touchscreen All-in-One segment is one of the more niche places Windows 8 has extended to, but it's arguably one that makes more sense. More often than not, we ditched the mouse and reached for the touchscreen instead; even the keyboard...

HP Envy Rove 20

 

HP joins the small but growing number of PC makers entering what I call the tabletop PC space . That's shorthand for a big-screen all-in-one desktop PC that includes a battery for short-haul portability, plus an ability to lie flat on a surface,...

The HP Envy Rove 20 costs a bit less than some other tabletop PCs, includes great audio, and runs long enough to watch a couple of movies without being plugged in.

It's heavier than some comparable big-screen systems, uses a lower-end CPU, and the 20-inch display isn't full HD.

HP's entry in the growing tabletop PC field, the 20-inch Envy Rove 20, is a fun family PC, but it really should have a full 1080p display.

HP Envy Rove 20 review

 

If you haven't upgraded your PC in the last couple of years, then you're probably still wondering what Microsoft was thinking when it came up with the blocky Start screen in Windows 8. The answer: a computer just like the HP Envy Rove 20.

Smart multi-tilt stand, great touch-sensitive interface, bundled Ethernet dongle, quiet in general use, stays very cool

No height adjustment, inconvenient SD slot placement, love-or-hate keyboard and mouse, heavy for a 'portable

HP Envy Rove 20 review

 

This would be a great family PC, but it's too expensive

Although the Envy Rove 20’s internal speaker is fairly loud for something that comes built into an all-in-one PC, it’s otherwise poor. We could hear hardly any bass at all, while high frequencies sounded harsh and brittle, even simple acoustic guitar...

HP 20-k120

 

Touch screen all in one portable ...Perfectly made for my needs!

Awesome Computer self contained. Don't even need a drive most times

So Far None. Just getting acclimated to Windows 8. You need to spend time on the device...that will come with use> Very easy to set up and download all your stuff from the Cloud
