It’s no secret that we believe in VR for everyone, which is why we’re thrilled to show you a new HP PC + HTC VIVE bundle that’s landing exclusively at Vive.com this month. It’s not only designed for a Radeon™ VR Ready Premium1 experience, it’s also designed to save you money and get your virtual reality world up and running in a flash.
Enter the HP Envy 750 into the ecosystem of affordable systems powered by the Radeon™ RX 480 GPU. It features a sleek brushed aluminum Envy chassis, our Radeon™ RX 480 graphics card, 8GB of DDR4 memory, an Intel Core i5 CPU, a 1TB hard drive for deep storage, and even a 128GB SSD for a lightning fast Windows® 10 operating system. The Envy 750 also boasts 8 total USB ports (four of them USB 3.0) for any extra peripherals in your arsenal, as well as a free keyboard and mouse.
This new bundle includes the HTC Vive system, which offers up hundreds of magical room-scale VR experiences and even allows you to play your existing Steam games on massive virtual screens. It’s also perfect for your living room; if you don’t have a PC monitor, simply hook it up to your existing TV!
“The Vive Ready HP Computer bundle provides a simple and affordable way for people to get their hands on Vive, without compromising on a truly immersive VR experience. We’re committed to making advanced room-scale technology accessible to as many people as possible, and our new bundle together with HP makes it easier than ever before to get started in VR,” said Dan O’Brien, VP of Virtual Reality at HTC.
The complete package is priced at only $1499. You’ll even get 5 VR experiences at no additional charge: Valve’s The Lab, theBlu: Encounter by Wevr, Zombie Training Simulator, Google’s Tilt Brush, and The Gallery — Episode 1: Call of the Starseed.. HTC and HP even toss in a USB drive with hardware setup instructions, the Vive software, and the latest required drivers to make it easy to jump in2.
You can’t get your hands on the bundle just yet, but you can sign up on the Vive website for the alert when it becomes available. We’d like to personally thank HTC and HP for pricing such attractive hardware so aggressively, and reinforcing our philosophy of VR for everyone.
