HP Compaq dc7700P

 

The HP dc7700P makes for an ideal office workhorse and comes equipped with an Core 2 Duo, vPro, good expansion potential and a small form factor, just don't expect much hard drive space or multimedia performance.

RAM can be upgraded to a massive 4GB, generous allocation of 256MB for graphics use, Three years parts and labour warranty

Average multimedia performance, Limited to low profile PCI cards, 80GB of storage is a bit on the low side
