With HP slapping the Envy name on everything they can get their hands on these days, the new HP Envy 27 Beats monitor that they dropped today shouldn’t come as a surprise. They’ve had Envy laptops, Envy all-in-one desktops, Envy printers and now they have an Envy monitor. The Envy 27 Beats hosts a 1920 x 1080 IPS panel that’s 27 inches in size with a super-slim bezel. The display has an aluminium stand that connects to the display in an off-center design and built-in speakers with mini subwoofer which boast Beats Audio branding.
The IPS display is covered by edge-to-edge class (also makes it a glossy display) and has viewing angles of 178 degrees all around. The Envy 27 Beats monitor measures a hair under 14 mm at its thinnest point. There’s ports for VGA, Display Port and HDMI as well as a 3.5 mm headphone jack and optical digital audio output. Just like the HP Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook, the HP Envy 27 Beats monitor shares the same February 3 release date and will retail for $499 (which is a little on the pricey side, but you pay for the Beats branding and design I suppose).
