The HP Envy Curved AIO 34, unveiled at CES 2017, is a refreshingly stylish take on the all-in-one desktop form factor.

The Palo Alto, California-based computing giant is showing off a new lineup of premium laptops, desktops, and displays that are created to blend work and leisure.

HP has rolled out a newly refreshed line up of notebook computers, convertible machines, all-in-ones, displays, and other devices.

By far the coolest feature of the HP Envy 13 are the new drop down USB-A ports. These include the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3, which HP says is the world's smallest business convertible - it has a starting weight of 2.76 pounds and is just 15.8 millimeters thick, with up to 18 hours of battery life and 4G Cat9 LTE connectivity. HP ENVY 13 laptop is expected to cost $999.99.

HP's EliteOne 1000 All in One G2 packs a 34-inch curved display and discrete graphics.

"HP's undisputed design and engineering leadership is delivering the ultimate combination of style, performance, and versatility", said Ron Coughlin, president of the Personal Systems group at HP, in a statement. They also all have audio tuned by Bang and Olufsen, support for Gigabit Wi-Fi speeds and new HP Command Center software, which lets you easily prioritize performance, fan noise and system temperatures depending on your needs. Equipped with a quad-core Intel Core i7-8550U processor and optional Nvidia MX150 graphics, it should be even more powerful than both the Spectre 13 and Spectre x360. This year's AiOs stun from any angle, incorporating a dark ash woodgrain finish on the base and pale gold accents along the back of the device, allowing it to stand out in a living space.

HP EliteOne 1000 AiO G2 is the world's first business class 34-inch curved AiO with discrete graphics, and a handsome and flexible design that makes it the flawless fit for the front desk, office or huddle room for meetings.

The models also include the HP Envy x360 13, a 13-inch convertible with AMD Ryzen processor and Radeon Vega graphics that has up to 11 hours of battery life (May $760). HP has also provided a proximity alert feature that notifies notify users when the pen is left behind.

HP ENVY x360 15 is one of the most unique creations by HP which will support both touch and pen. HP says the Envy is the world's widest all-in-one computer, and also the first to have Alexa built into the device.

Specs are not accessible for the 34-inch edition, however a Curved AiO 27-inch Model begins at $1,400 and comes with an eighth-generation Intel Core I7-8700T chip, 16GB of memory and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card.

The new products will be available starting in May and June. The HP Envy Desktop is a premium desktop with various 8th gen Intel Core multi-core processors, optional GTX 1080 graphics, and optional Optane memory. The HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3, Elite x2 1013 G3, and EliteBook 1050 G1 will arrive in July, with each starting at £1,199. HP will sell the Elite x2 1013 G3 in the United States in June with a starting price of $1,499 (approximately Rs. 1,01,230). HP EliteBook S14 is expected to wear the tag of $219.

HP ENVY x360 13 is expected to be available in May at HP.com for a starting price of $759.99.

HP ENVY 17 Laptop is expected to be available in May at HP.com for a starting price of $1,049.99.
