Small form factor business chassis. Part of a unified family that can share disk images. Three-year warranty

Integrated graphics still aren't quite up to the performance of mid-level AGP cards. Half-height PCI/PCI-Express card slots

HP Compaq Business Desktop dc7100

 

Thanks to new Intel hardware, the dc7100 is one of the most powerful business PCs we've seen to date.

New Intel technology will help it stand the test of time ; Easy to access and replace internal components ; Solid performer ; 8 USB 2.0 ports ; Outstanding warranty

Case hood is hard to remove ; Hard drive is situated under the power supply ; No room for full-size PCIe graphics card
