HP just announced the HP 34" All-in-One Desktop PC. The AIO is aimed at creative professionals with demanding workloads and is the "world's most powerful commercial All-in-One PC," according to the company. Inside, the HP 34" All-in-One Desktop PC runs on a 12th Gen Intel vPro processor (up to Core i9) and up to an NVIDIA RTX 3060 GPU. Those internals power a 34-inch 5K display with a 21:9 aspect ratio.
HP dropped the ENVY name from its new AIO, but it is the successor of the HP Envy 34 All-in-One. That PC earned praise for its high specs and gorgeous design.
In addition to its high-end specs, the HP 34" All-in-One Desktop PC supports up to two 16MP detachable cameras. The webcams attach magnetically, allowing users to select their optimal setup. Magnetic points around the bezels of the display provide flexibility. The AIO supports dual video streams, which can be used to stream a person sitting in front of the PC as well as a document or presentation resting below the display.
