HP Envy 27 AIO (late 2016) review

 

If you're looking for an all-in-one for watching high-quality movies, photo editing or gaming, look away -- look away quickly. But if you want a general-purpose, elegantly designed and reasonably priced Windows 10 AIO that also happens to deliver...

The 2016 update of the HP Envy AIO 27 has a really pleasing and simple design, it's easy to use and its B&O sound system is better than your average built-in sound.

The bundled keyboard and mouse aren't that great, and some people might find the display a little too washed out.

A pretty good value wrapped in a classy, well-designed box, the HP Envy AIO 27 will fill your need for a solid everyday PC that you won't need to hide.

HP Envy 27 (27-b150na) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The HP Envy 27 isn't a cheap proposition, but the components under the stylish hood might just justify its price tag. With a dedicated graphics card and Bang & Olufsen audio, it's clear that this isn't a model aimed at someone who does the odd bit of...

HP Envy 27 series review

  (Rating Hidden)

The HP Envy 27-p000na is one of the flashiest, best equipped, most expensive all-in-one (AIO) PCs on the market today. Its sizeable 27-inch touchscreen display boasts a whopping 3,840x2,160 Ultra-4K resolution, and nestled behind it is the latest Intel...
