PC Pro's verdict on HP's latest business desktop PC.

Probably Should Skip This


This PC obviously wasn't refurbished. Appears to have had an imaged drive stuck in it, Windows COA applied and sent out the door.

Dependable line of HP computers

Really beat up. Had to reconstruct the whole rear of this computer as it was smashed in. Lots of scratches and blemishes. There was no damage to the box and it was packed well

Barely plays Minecraft


Does not have Open GL so it will run the game on low res, but not a lot of the mods. You get a message about it being out of date. Other than that you can surf the net fine. It was for my kids.

HP CD5800 Rebuilt


It is the perfect cheap computer for the job.

For $122 with a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro. that means the hardware only cost 20 bucks. This is a great buy ; I was able to use some old member and expand it to 8 gigs ; I bought this computer to replace a dead old machine that is a public box in...

Its Windows MS Speed index is only 3.3, but I was not expecting it be near the cutting edge or Technology
