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 desktop comes with two laptop-style drives: a 2.5-inch 250GB hard drive and a tray-loading DVD burner. This setup has plusses and minuses. The hard drive can be swapped out for another solution in some configurations, but both the spinning hard...

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

The HP Compaq 8200 Elite USDT is a compact desktop that isn't burdened by legacy hardware, which makes it a good choice for businesses dealing mainly with information on the LAN or on the Internet.

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


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.

I like it


I administer about 110 desktop devices and this is one of my favorites overall. Good "Business-Performance" for the price.

Good bang for your buck if you are into the refurbs. Way better quality, condition and price than TigerD. Could hardly tell it was a refurb / off lease unit. Arrived in Practically Perfect Brand New Condition. Fast for a Windows 7 machine with a...

Uses display port - as opposed to your traditional HDMI or DVI-D for Secondary Video. Watch out for that - you are going to need an adapter to hook up multiple screens if you don't already have one ; Mouse and Keyboard suck... but I didn't buy it for...
