HP Compaq 8200 Elite All-in-One Review: A Superfast PC That Fizzles


Trying to dig up a low-cost, all-in-one, business-class desktop system that doesn't stink is a bit like trying to find a magic lamp in a cave: It's a daunting proposition, to say the least. And the HP Compaq 8200 Elite all-in-one desktop doesn't make...

Superfast general performance ; Integrated 802.11n connectivity

Limited connection options ; Below-average storage capacity

If speed is the name of your game, you won’t be disappointed by this business-class, all-in-one system. But that’s all it really brings to the table.

HP Compaq 8200 Elite USDT


The HP Compaq 8200 Elite USDT is a compact desktop that's a good choice for businesses dealing mainly with information on the LAN or on the Internet.

Compact form factor. Includes MXM card slot. SSD option available.

Uses notebook-class hard and optical drives, external power supply. Not expandable. No HDMI, USB 3.0, eSATA ports. Limited capacity storage. Replacing hard drive somewhat involved.

HP Compaq 8200 Elite Ultra-slim PC (XZ788UT)


Of course, as the name indicates, this is a small-bodied computer, intended for situations where space savings matter. As a result, you have to temper your expectations in certain ways. This model doesn't offer the same range of upgrade and...

Performs well for price ; Compact design ; Supports Intel vPro technology ; Eco-friendly manufacturing ; Above-average warranty

Limited upgrade potential ; Bundled keyboard, mouse use PS/2

Excellent speed for the money, plus handy management features and a long warranty, make the 8200 Elite a winning compact PC for business.

HP Compaq 8200 Elite Ultra-Slim Desktop Review


Although the desktop market isn't shrinking too fast these days, the desktops themselves are.

HP Compaq 8200 Elite


Sleek and minimalistic, this all-in-one PC packs a performance wallop with a blazing CPU, cavernous disk memory and extremely capable video. An abundance of input and output methods receive and share digital data.

The warranty is for a generous three years, and there is a next-day service for parts and labor

No complaints, but if you need a touch screen this is not the particular HP computer for you

The HP Compaq 8200 Elite is a superb all-in-one computer.

HP Compaq 8200 Elite Ultra-slim Review


Here's one reason why you should be interested in the HP Compaq 8200 Elite Ultra Slim for your business use: It's fast. The company decided to slap an Intel Sandy Bridge processor into its reasonably priced £838 business desktop. Alas, this speedy CPU...

HP has strapped a speedy Sandy Bridge CPU into an antiquated system design, delivering strong performance for a business class desktop, but not much else.

HP Compaq 8200 Elite All-in-one review


So how does the Compaq 8200 Elite stack up? Though slightly slower and slightly smaller (at a screen size of 21.5in), Lenovo's ThinkCentre M91z trades a performance difference of 8% for a full touchscreen, identical storage capacity, and support for...

Decent product, lackluster support.


Steps taken to get this Machine Grandma-ready: • Make a rescue CD and reinstall windows to fix my update problem, there is a recovery partition on the Hard Drive. • Install a 2gb Stick of ram for about $12, brings it up to a modest 6gb. • Use a tool...

For the price the performance is wonderful.

Had problems with windows update using 100% cpu and freezing. After days of trying fixes I ask for a new image to install or something and the support links me to a shady ISO website. No thanks. Lid didn't fit on right when I got it, bent a tab with...

Great deal!


Great deal for the money, but upgrade to an SSD.

Was fast to begin with, but I swapped the HD out for and SSD and WOW! 16 gigs of RAM really makes a difference too. I like it so much, I'm buying another.

First unit I received was a dud. Random BSOD. Newegg was great. Sent me the shipping labels and sent me a new machine. It took a little longer than I would have liked, but still relatively quick and painless.
