The iMac 2016's arrival is certainly highly anticipated. However, the HP Envy AIO is also one great device which could match up with the iMac 2016. There are some certain qualities of the iMac that proves why it is better than the HP Envy AIO.
The iMac 2016 boasts a 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor named Kaby Lake. Its new AMD Zen processor supports the idea that the 27-inch iMac 2016 is certainly a high-end machine with an extreme processing power. Its graphics chips are from AMD Polaris set, according to Mac World. The Polaris chips will surely produce an improved graphics performance, while reducing power consumption and heating.

Its flash storage is an innovation called Fusion Drive, an integration of flash and hybrid storage. The iMac 2016 will definitely perform faster because of its faster SSD drives.
On the other hand, PC Mag reported that the HP Envy AIO is an all-in-one 34-inch desktop, with an ultra-wide curved screen and an aspect ratio of 21:9. Its monitor looks more of an HDTV than a PC. It features sharp imagery through its curved screen, thus, giving videos cinematic effects. The HP is ideal for multi-tasking due to its dual monitor set-up.
Overall, the HP Envy's AIO exceeds the previous iMac in terms of overall graphics ability; however, with the coming of the iMac 2016, this will definitely change since the iMac has already a 5K resolution. The iMac 2016 will be a heavy performing PC due to its new processor.
