A stunning new Desktop, the first truly new development in desktop PCs in several years. Works well, once you correct 2 flaws. My turn to step again into the early-adopter line for a new piece of cutting-edge tech. This HP Envy 34 all-in-one is a stunning machine, and the end result is something very new in the rather stale field of desktops. Not since Apple introduced the 5K iMac 27” have I seen such a radical step in desktop PCs. This is a long review, very long.

Plus it had cables tracking everywhere to all sorts of other peripherals, like the monitor. She was more than ready for a change.Going into Best Buy (where I purchased my Envy), she was immediately attracted to the Apple counters, and fell in love with the iMac. She loved the all-in-one design, and the clean modern look. But the iMac…
