The HP ENVY 34-Inch All-in-One desktop is a rising star among professionals looking to create a productive workspace setup.
Now, the latest addition to our lineup is upping the ante: the HP ENVY All-in-One 34-c1045t. This new entrée combines an uncompromising display that delivers stunning detailed visuals with the power and performance that handles demanding tasks with ease.
Who would benefit from owning the HP ENVY All-in-One 34-c1045t? Creative professionals, home users, business users, and students who require a powerful computer for their work but desire a space-efficient, modern, and professional design.

Differences between AIO and traditional PC or laptops

Before we dive into what to expect from our latest HP ENVY 34 all-in-one desktop, let us first look at what distinguishes an all-in-one (AIO) PC from a traditional PC or laptop setup.
An all-in-one PC is a single unit of your traditional desktop setup. Imagine if all the components of a normal PC setup, such as the tower, display, and storage drives, were combined into one, and that’s what you get with an AIO.
Visually, an AIO is less cluttered as it needs fewer cables and frees up space that a tower would take up. This minimalist design gives an AIO a professional and elegant look.

If an AIO integrates all components into a single unit, does that make it a laptop? Not quite. First, an AIO has a larger display than a laptop setup. Second, an AIO requires a dedicated workspace, as this PC is not built for portability. While you can quickly move an AIO, it is not suitable for use on the go.
Choosing between an AIO, laptop, or traditional PC comes down to your individual needs and preferences. For instance, a laptop is a better fit if you require mobility. Then again, if you are into gaming, a gaming laptop or PC would provide better performance.

Polished and uncluttered design

Our turbo silver-colored HP ENVY 34 All-in-One exemplifies simplicity with its elegant and minimalist design. At first glance in the office or home workspace, you will notice the eye-catching 34-inch screen with its simple square stand connected to the monitor with a cylindrical shaft.
This stand is adjustable, and the shaft allows you to raise or lower the HP ENVY 34 AIO smoothly until you find an optimal height for the best ergonomic viewing experience. You can also adjust the angle of the screen by tilting it forward or backward as you look for a picture-perfect viewing angle.
Our team has designed this all-in-one PC to offer a stunning display. The headliner is a remarkable 5K resolution with a 21:9 aspect ratio, 500 nits of brightness, and a 98% DCI-P3 color gamut. Content creators will find this fantastic display helpful when editing photos and videos. As for eye care, we’ve included an anti-reflective coating to reduce strain on your eyes. Yes, it’s as impressive as it sounds.
Another feature that stands out when you look at the AIO is our innovative HP True Vision 16 MP binning IR privacy camera. The camera is integrated with dual array digital microphones that will keep you looking your best and your voice clear during conference calls. Additionally, it is magnetic and detachable, so you can move it around the edge of your system to capture your best angle.
We ship our HP ENVY All-in-One computer with a Bluetooth black wireless keyboard and mouse to reduce wire clutter.

Connectivity and upgrading options

We have packed the HP ENVY 34 All-in-One computer with several high-quality ports that you might use. All our ports are located within your reach at the back of the display or on the side of the stand. Whether you need a port to insert a flash disk or an external video output, you will find one that suits your needs.
At the rear end, you will find USB Type-C Thunderbolt 4 ports that transfer large files at incredible speeds of 40 Gbps. These ports have fast charging capabilities that can quickly charge your smartphone or tablet, even if your AIO is in mode. They also support DisplayPort 1.4, which allows for 4K resolution displays and video output, and USB Type-A ports allow for rapid transfer speeds of 10 Gbps with compatible devices.
Casual gamers can immerse themselves in a video game using the headphone/microphone combo jack with a nice pair of headsets. There is also an RJ-45 Ethernet port that you can use to boost your internet speed through a wired connection.
Additionally, we have made the back panel easily removable for you to upgrade the storage and memory capacity of your HP ENVY 34 All-in-One.
On the side of the stand, we have installed USB Type-C and USB Type-A ports. These ports have a signaling rate of 5 Gbps which is nothing to frown upon. They also support Battery Charging 1.2, which charges your smartphone albeit at a slower pace than the Thunderbolt 4 ports.
