HP recently announced the HP ENVY Rove20 mobile All-in-One (AiO) PC, the company’s first mobile All-in-One PC, which frees the desktop PC from the desk and allows families and friends to enjoy a shared entertainment experience with a built-in battery, unique design and advanced touch technology.
HP also announced new consumer notebooks, all-in-one PCs and printers that give people more flexibility in how they access and share information. With affordable touch technology and new form factors, HP’s new additions provide seamless integration of technology into customers’ busy lives.
“Customers are looking for mobility and flexibility in their computing devices to give families new ways to bring generations together,” Yesh Surjoodeen, Printing and Personal Systems (PPS) PC category manager, HP South Africa.
“HP is evolving to meet our customers’ needs by designing next-generation form factors, like the Rove mobile All-in-One PC, which will enable people to connect, share and create in ways they never imagined.”
The HP ENVY Rove20 can easily move from upright to completely horizontal for a tabletop entertainment experience. Using advanced multiple-touch technology, multiple users can interact with games and more at the same time. Multiplayer games such as Electronic Arts’ Monopoly, Fingertapps JigsWar Puzzle, Fingertapps Musical Instruments, and nsquared makewords are an ease to play when the PC is laid flat.
In addition to sharing games, families and friends can enjoy multimedia content on the 50,8cm (20-inch) 1 600 x 900 IPS LED panel that enables wide viewing angles, rich colours and sharp graphics, while built-in Beats Audio offers crisp, clear sound.
Powered by 4th generation Intel Core processors, Intel HD graphics and 10-point touch, the HP ENVY Rove20 packs power for productivity tasks and an immersive entertainment experience with the ease of touch interaction.
