Portable devices are all the rave these days and not limited to just smartphones and tablets. HP offers desktop PCs that can be easily moved from room to room without the tower and multiple cords.
HP added another easily portable PC to its Envy family of computing devices, the HP Envy Rove 20. What sets it apart from the HP Envy desktop is a hinge release that lets it function as a 20-inch tablet. The HP Rove enters the market to go up against similar PCs such as the 18.4-inch ASUS Transformer AiO, which offers a detachable stand alone tablet and runs Windows 8 OS.
The HP Envy Rove is powered by the 4th generation Intel Haswell CPU and runs Windows 8 software. Pre-installed multi-player games such as EA Monopoly and Fingertapps JigsWar suggests that the HP Envy Rove 20 is intended to be a social and family-friendly.
The 20-inch IPS LED panel has a resolution of 1600 x 900 and offers sharp graphics, wide viewing angles and Beats Audio quality sound.
