HP’s monstrously curvy 34in PC will dominate your desktop, and your eyes

It also has its own gravitational field

HP has revealed a bunch of new kit today, but none of it draws in the eyes as much as its beastly Envy Curved All-In-One PC.

Its huge 34in screen is curved, which supposedly makes it feel like you’re looking at it straight on, even as you turn your head to look at the other side of the screen.

We can’t verify that without laying eyes on it ourselves, but we do like its futuristic shape and shiny metal feet.

The screen real estate will of course appeal to productivity fiends and gamers alike, although the resolution - 3440 x 1440 - is a little disappointing at this size.

Crack it open (not that we’d recommend doing so) and you’ll find a new Intel i5 or i7 Skylake processor, an optional Nvidia GTX 960A GPU for gaming and video editing, up to 16GB of RAM, and an SSD, HDD, or both, depending on your configuration.

Six front-facing speakers surround the display itself (which would explain those bezels) while an Intel RealSense camera allows Windows Hello face login recognition.

It’ll be out in November, starting from £2000.

Amongst a smattering of other laptop, display and all-in-one announcements, HP also revealed the Microsoft Surface Pro-like tablet/laptop hybrid called the Spectre x2.

It’s a 12in 1080p tablet which has a detachable keyboard and a hollow adjustable kickstand, which is specced out with Intel’s new Skylake Core M processors.

The means it rests in between the Surface Pro and Surface Book in terms of raw power, and its fully kitted out specs include 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.

It can be yours in October, starting at £800.
