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-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.

It's still too early to call an Editors' Choice winner for the portable all-in-one desktop PC segment, but for now the Dell XPS 18 has the best balance of portability and usability. The HP Rove 20-K014us is a close second or third place at this time,...

HP's 20-inch mega-tablet, the Envy Rove 20

 

It's big and heavy, but this 20-inch hybrid all-in-one is the least expensive way to get into tabletop PCs.

The ; 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

 

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 and Ratings

 

HP's Envy Rove 20 has a nice screen and a wonderfully designed kickstand. But despite a new Haswell CPU, this nearly $1,000 oversized tablet/AIO underperforms and suffers from some design flaws.

Elegant kickstand hinge ; Great-looking IPS screen ; Excellent audio output

No handle for moving the system around ; Limited port selection ; Underpowered considering price ; Too much bloatware

It isn't easy to power a large screen and a spate of components off a battery while also keeping the system fairly light. We'd say HP did an okay job on that front with the Rove 20. In our video-playback battery-life test, it lasted longer than HP's...

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. The HP Envy...

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...

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
