Amazon’s Alexa digital personal assistant is making its way into a wide variety of devices which is why it’s not surprising to see that Alexa has made its way into an all-in-one PC as well. HP has launched an updated Envy Curved AiO PC which features a large base and a speaker on the front with a glowing blue light which will turn on when Alexa is summoned. It’s an AiO PC like any other with Alexa being the unique feature.
HP actually released a redesigned model of this AiO PC last year and this latest model is quite similar to that with the updated specs being one major exception. The other is the fake wooden texture that’s been added to bring some class to the whole affair.
The HP Envy Curved AiO has a 34 inch curved monitor and can be configured with 8th Generation Intel Core processors with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics and Intel Optane memory. It’s designed for people who want a PC that’s powerful enough for demanding workloads and yet has a premium design.
HP points out that this is the world’s first all-in-one PC with Alexa baked in. An Alexa app is pre-installed on the PC which can be used to summon the assistant as well as see the information that it has to display such as weather forecasts.
The company says that the Envy Curved AiO is going to be available for purchase later this year. It hasn’t confirmed pricing as yet.
