All-in-ones are poised to be a focus of computer manufacturers in 2017 and HP has a brand new one that should please those who need power, but also want something that looks nice as well.
The HP ENVY All-in-One 27 builds off the new ENVY 27 display but adds in a full PC as well. The goal for HP was to make an AIO that was minimal and sleek with a near-bezel-less display. Users also get a pop-up HD IR web camera that lets users leverage Windows Hello.

The HP ENVY All-in-one 27 checks all the right boxes for those who want a semi-powerful home computer that looks like it could be in a movie. The sleek design, inclusion of Windows Hello, forward proofing USB Type-C and that slim display sounds like an excellent family computer or office workstation.
Although the optional GeForce GTX-950M is not a gaming card, it should help running Photoshop or doing some light video processing.
The sound is also supposed to be impressive with the base of the computer acting as a sound bar with no less than four front-firing speakers. HP also moved all of the ports into the base, so you won't have to try and hide them behind the display stand.
For the display, HP matched the new ENVY 27 with a 99% sRGB color gamut, and a Blue Light Filter for Night and Reading modes. The display is even Technicolor Color Certified, which HP describes as "true-to-life color with the same industry-leading specifications as those used in Hollywood."
If you're curious why the ENVY AIO 27 runs the 6th-generation of Intel's Core i5 and Core i7 that is because these are quad-core (not dual like laptops). The 7th-generation quad-core versions are not due until early 2017 for manufacturers.
Look for the HP ENVY All-in-one 27 to retail on October 16 for the Core i7 version that has a 1TB HDD, 16GB of RAM and a the GTX-950M for $1599. HP will begin selling the 2TB version today on HP.com for $1699 while the cheaper Core i5 variant hits November 2 for $1249.
