HP has announced a new version of its 34-inch curved Envy all-in-one PC, this time with Amazon’s Alexa built-in. This is the first AIO to include Alexa, which means you’ll be able to talk to your desktop to check the weather or put on your favorite playlist.

The AIO also comes with Alexa’s signature blue light to indicate that your commands are being heard.

The new Envy PC retains many of the features of its predecessor, such as the quad Bang & Olufsen speakers and an integrated wireless charging pad for your smartphone.

However, it comes with certain aesthetic tweaks as well, with a refreshing wood grain finish for a more earthy look.

Elsewhere, the system has been upgraded with Intel’s new 8th-generation processors and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card.

The ultra-wide display sports a 3,440 x 1,440-pixel resolution, but HP has stopped short of releasing more concrete specifications. The company says pricing and specifications will come later this year.

In the meantime, there’s the more modest 27-inch Envy Curved AIO that features up to an Intel Core i7-8700T processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 4GB. It also supports up to 16GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, up to 2TB HDDs, and PCIe NVMe SSDs.
