HP desktop computers offer strong audio output and sleek designs, but can also be heavy to carry and lacking in features that are commonly found in other desktops. Overall, they are good computers for personal use.
CNET offers a review of the HP Envy 23xt Beats Special Edition desktop computer. The performance of the device is rated a seven out of 10, with the reviewer noting that the audio is strong and clear. The four speakers are highly praised.
Similarly, CNET also gives a strongly positive review for the audio output of the HP Envy Rove 20 desktop computer. The stylish design of the HP Envy is seen as another positive aspect. The sturdy kickstand for the HP Envy Rove is described as very secure in comparison to kickstands for similar computers.
CNET notes that, although the HP Envy has an attractive display, it is offset by glossiness that is too reflective and can make the screen difficult to view. In addition, the computer features integrated graphics instead of an independent graphics card, which makes it difficult to play games with advanced graphics. The HP Envy Rove is noted as being heavier than other computers similar to it. It also lacks a full high-definition display and uses a CPU that is generally less powerful than other desktop computers on the market.
