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

Many of the business PCs we've seen recently have focused on squeezing a competent specification into a space-saving chassis - four systems in our Business PC Labs opted for tiny chassis. The HP Compaq dc5800, though, bucks this trend, opting for a...

Consumer review by:

Great Machine for the price

 

Computer works great right out of the box. Very good system for a great price

not a tower by default, but can be stood on end, except dvd drive hard to use that way. Laid down, takes a lot of desk space

Consumer review by:

DO NOT BUY

 

Works

It is a tank. HUGE, HEAVY, and NOISEY

Consumer review by:

Great Value!

 

These desktops are low profile and pack the necessary punch and reliablility as any new one with the same specifications. This makes these desktops a great value

Minor cosmetic signs

Consumer review by:

Great value!!!

 

This is a great value for the buck!! Since my last computer was about 8 years old, I'm probably pretty easy to please but this thing is so fast and so quiet! And I'm so not used to that. Wonderful little machine! It took about 2 hours to get and...

Incredibly easy to set up, update, and modify; very quiet and speedy

Not crazy about the physical configuration - would rather a tower

Consumer review by:

Excellent deal for the price

 

I bought this to replace an XP machine rather than upgrading it. I would have probably paid more money to upgrade my current machine. The only thing I have done is bought another 2 GB of memory to max it out. If it would have cost $200 I would have...

Very inexpensive for the price and with the O/S to boot. I got the deal for $110

didn't come with windows 7 64 bit or 4 GB of memory, but these would have been in my ultimate purchase. I really can't beat what I got for the price I paid
