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

 

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.

The HP Envy Rove 20 is the most competent all-in-one/tablet crossover thus far. The display is good, the peripherals are reasonable, connectivity is okay, and the price is not too high. Granted, $880 is a lot for a 20-inch all-in-one, but the system’s...

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 review:

 

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 - Pocket-lint

 

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

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'

The HP Envy Rove 20 is a well-rounded, beautifully put together portable bundle, even if it's not something that people will use much as a true 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...
