What is this device?

This device is called the HP Envy Move all-in-one PC. It looks and operates like a monoblock, but it’s a hybrid system with a built-in 83 Wh battery. To make it more portable, it has a handle. The device weighs only about 4 kg, which is not much, roughly the same weight as high-performance gaming laptop models, or even more. However, its screen diagonal is larger than that of laptops, at 23.8 inches.

According to the manufacturers, the device’s advantage is that it can work on any horizontal surface, thanks to special supports that make the monoblock stable.

The battery lasts for approximately 4 hours of autonomous operation, which is quite impressive considering the device’s screen size. The developers claim they tested the autonomy through three different scenarios:

  • MobileMark25 (conditions of the test were not disclosed).
  • Watching Netflix series with the screen brightness set to 200 nits.
  • Playing 1080p video at maximum volume, but without activating wireless mode.

The company obtained those same 4 hours after evaluating the results of all three tests. In general, one can be skeptical about this information, but even if everything is true, 4 hours — is not a full working day, so ultimately, the user will have to find a place with access to electricity.

Technical specifications of the unique HP Envy Move monoblock:

  • 23.8-inch IPS touchscreen display with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels
  • Intel Core i3-1315U processor (base configuration)
  • SSD storage ranging from 256 GB to 1 TB
  • 16 GB of RAM
  • Ports: USB 3, USB-C, HDMI
  • Stereo speakers
  • Webcam
  • Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.3

The buyer can choose the configuration, although the number of options is not very large. For example, you can choose between Intel Core i3 or i5, as well as 8 or 16 GB of RAM. Storage options also vary from 256 GB to 1 TB SSD.

As for other specifications, it’s worth mentioning the webcam with privacy protection feature, plus ports such as USB Type-C, USB Type-A, and HDMI. The price of the HP Envy Move starts at $900, and depending on the chosen configuration, the cost can reach $1220.

Of course, the specifications are not particularly impressive – primarily because the device is marketed as a “home workstation.” There are more powerful devices available. For example, the ThinkCentre M90a Pro Gen 3, introduced in January 2023, features an i7-12700 vPro processor (8 P-cores with a clock speed of 4.8 GHz, 4 E-cores with a clock speed of 3.6 GHz) and Nvidia GeForce MX550 graphics (2GB GDDR6). This is a much more powerful device capable of handling heavy content.

But the HP monoblock is still good. It has a touchscreen, so the device can be used for children’s education or for younger generations to watch educational videos. Additionally, there is a fairly comfortable keyboard, which, however, can be replaced with any other.

As for the device’s versatility, it is still not suitable for some tasks mentioned by the developer. For example, there is this photo.

However, considering the device’s external fragility, it’s better not to engage in sports activities near it, relegating the device to the role of a desktop PC that can be occasionally taken with you – for business trips, office work, or trips to a country house.

The cost of this device

The Core i5-based model with a 1TB SSD is available for £1,399 in the UK, and a Core i5-based model with a 512GB SSD is available for AU$1,999 in Australia.

Pros and cons


  • Battery, handle and flip-out feet make it easy to tote from room to room
  • Bright, crisp touch display
  • High-res 1,440-pixel webcam


  • Display has no height and very little tilt adjustment
  • Audio output is underwhelming
  • No headphone jack

This technological marvel has competitors as well

Yes, it turns out that the monoblock is not as unique as it seems. For example, LG previously released a 27-inch monoblock that fits into a real suitcase. It also has a handle. This device is called StanbyME Go.

It also has a touchscreen, allowing the device to be used for a variety of tasks. The manufacturer, in particular, offers this use of the system.

Final Words

Perhaps not many people will drag a 27-inch monoblock in a suitcase out into nature just to play games during a meal break. But for many other tasks, StanbyME Go is quite suitable. By the way, the suitcase here is more reliable than that of HP; it was developed by military specialists with an appropriate level of protection against external factors.

The device underwent 11 different tests, including low pressure, high and low temperatures, high levels of dust, vibration, salty water (salt aerosol, apparently testing the ability to work on ships and coastal areas of the sea or ocean), and drop tests. The device passed all tests excellently. However, the weight of the device is not 4 kg, as in the case of the HP device, but a hefty 12.7 kilograms. Here, one might again question the possibility of using this monoblock as a “day-off gadget,” as depicted in the photo above.

By the way, this monoblock also has a built-in battery, which lasts for approximately 3 hours of operation.

Well, it seems that electronics manufacturers want to test the market for new types of gadgets. First, there were devices with foldable screens. And now – suitcases
