HP's all-in-one brings Alexa to the party

HP's ENVY Curved AiO 34 gets sleek new design and Alexa

Both the Envy 17 laptop and Envy x360 15 also feature Intel Optane memory features for faster loading times.

By far the coolest feature of the HP Envy 13 are the new drop down USB-A ports.

While Windows 10 already has a virtual assistant in the form of Cortana, Alexa is arguably more capable, so plonking her into a 34in version of HP Envy Curved AiO isn't a complete bat dropping idea.

HP EliteBook 1050 G1 is expected to be available in May for a starting price of $1,899.

It offers exceptional power in a sleek, stylish, all-metal design available in pale gold or natural silver and 8th Generation Intel Quad Core processors, optional NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics and up to 14 hours of battery life so you can multitask on-the-go. Besides, the EliteBook x360 1030 G3 has a full-HD (1080p) webcam and comes with 18 hours of battery life on a single charge. The X2 1013 will start retailing at $1499 (Rs 1,01,714). The notebooks also include a fingerprint reader, optional HP Sure View, and Intel Optane memory.

The Envy 13 will be available in May starting at $1,000 (roughly converted to £740 or AU$1,320) and features an eighth-gen Intel Core i7 processor, PCIe NVMe SSDs and integrated graphics. This convertible is created to perform and impress, with multi-threaded processing, powerful integrated graphics, optional HP Sure View, and up to 11 hours of battery life. The 17-inch model has an estimated runtime of 9 hours and 15 minutes with mixed usage, and the Envy 13 laptop can operate for up to 14 hours in the same situation. HP claimed the AIO 34 is the world's first curved AIO to feature integrated Amazon Alexa, in addition to being the world's widest curved AIO. It will go on sale in the U.S. in June with a starting price of $1,449 (approximately Rs. 97,900). It will be available for purchase in the USA starting June with an initial price tag of $1,279 (approximately Rs. 86,400).

There are two models of the HP ENVY X360 to choose from, with the 13 inch model including the AMD Ryzen Processor with Radeon Vega Graphics22 and 11 hours of battery life. Intel versions with current Core i5 or i7 processors will be available starting at $870. Through an intuitive audio dial, users can control the volume or skip songs on a playlist. The Envy AIO 34 will come later in the year, starting at £1,099. If you'd prefer more screen real estate, there will be a 15.6-inch Envy x360 15 with the same hardware options starting at $750.

A blue strip light to the front signifies that Alexa is ready to help, and users can expect to interact with Alexa in the same way as with other devices, such as checking the weather or lining up favorite music. Majority are carryovers from the outgoing generation, such as quad Bang & Olufsen speakers and a built-in wireless charging pad for your phone. The HP Envy Curved AiO 34 will go on sale sometime later this year, while customers in the U.S. will be able to pick the HP Envy AiO 27 later this month with a starting price of $1,399 (approximately Rs. 94,500).

HP ENVY Desktop is expected to be available in May at HP.com for a starting price of $799.99.
