Excerpt: We have to hand it to HP . Despite all the trendy all-in-one PC/tablet hybrid designs coming out, its new HP Envy 23 opts for a more traditional space-efficient AiO. The 23-inch panel sits atop a sturdy base and is adjustable to 40 degrees. A 3-inch gap between the monitor and the 17x8-inch base lets you stow the keyboard under the monitor when not in use. Though hardly innovative, it gets the job done.
Conclusion: If you're shopping in the $1,800 ballpark, Dell's touch-screen XPS One 27 offers a larger, higher-resolution screen and slightly nicer aesthetics. But with a saner configuration, the Envy 23 TouchSmart is a fine choice as a family or media PC. Its responsive touch screen, decent audio, and HDMI port make it a versatile machine for a number of tasks.
Conclusion: In the end, the HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart can do pretty much anything you throw at it, and it can certainly handle the demanding needs of an entire family, from the little kids all the way up to the impatient grandparents. It comes with most of the features that you would want on a high-end all-in-one desktop -- it’s got the large 1080p touchscreen display, a huge hard drive, gobs of RAM, and a super-fast processor.
Conclusion: It seems that our conclusion agrees with our hypothesis. We were skeptical that the HP Envy 23 could bring real luxury or unique features to a $949 price point. And it doesn’t. This is an all-in-one, and it does what comparable all-in-ones do. That means value is an important metric — which is where this PC really starts to stumble. $1,049 isn’t outrageous, but it’s not exactly a bargain.
Summary: This HP Envy 23 TouchSmart all-in-one desktop PC is a bit pricey at just over £1,000, but it's a relatively good-looking machine with a nice, sturdy build. Read our HP Envy 23 TouchSmart review.

Excerpt: Se il mercato dei PC sta perdendo colpi, le case produttrici non stanno certo a guardare. Da qualche anno l'all-in-one si sta imponendo come una delle formule sulle quali puntare per risollevarsi, e l'Envy 23 è il tentativo di HP di assicurarsi una parte di questo mercato. Un lato estetico particolare, dimensioni nella media e buone prestazioni sono la tattica per entrare in più case possibile. Il design è un interessante mix tra eleganza e personalità.
