Last week I got an amazing delivery. I started working with Intel to try out and share my experiences with the HP Envy Rove 20 Mobile AIO PC with an Intel® Core™ i3 processor and Windows 8. As you might imagine, this is a pretty exciting experience because my work space was limited to my old desktop PC that comes with half a dozen cords, tons of wires and a giant tower that hangs out in my desk cabinet. While I may go everywhere, this PC goes no where.
Unlike my old PC, the new HP Envy Rove 20 can be set up on my desk like a desktop but it has a more convenient space saving design. It’s an all-in-one that has just ONE power cord. The mouse and keyboard are wireless and there’s no tower.
The best part? I can use it as a desktop in my office or I can take it with me on the go. This mobile AIO can run cordless with a 3 hour battery life making it perfect for working at a coffee shop, on a business trip or even out on the back porch while the kids are playing. The touchscreen even allows me to leave the mouse and keyboard behind.
Later this week we’ll be taking off on a family trip and I’m really excited to take this along with us for the ride. While I don’t condone working while on vacation, I do have assignments with deadlines. With the HP Envy Rove 20, I can work in the hotel while the kids are asleep.
In the coming months I’ll be sharing my experiences with this new computer. If you have any questions about it, feel free to let me know in the comments!
