HP Compaq dc7700p Ultra-slim Desktop

 

Secure, dependable, and innovative. The perfect business desktop? Ed finds out.

The dc7700p, then, is the ultra-slim desktop version of HPs flagship 7000 range of PCs. Configuration options include the choice of dual-core Pentium D or Core 2 Duo CPUs, 80 or 160 GB hard drives, 512 MB or 1GB RAM, and Intel integrated or ATI X1300...

HP Compaq dc7700P

 

Equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and vPro remote management hardware, the HP Compaq dc7700P is certainly an attractive option for business users.

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

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.

It works, for the price of the OS

HP DC7700

 

Good purchase, I worked it in and ain't giving it back.

Works perfectly so far, specs as listed, a perfect replacement for my wife's old HP XL desktop

This is a LARGE desktop unit, not the small form factor unit I thought I was ordering. It is a vertical desktop PC that stands just under 18 inches tall. If space is a consideration, take note

Consumer review by:

Excellent value for money

 

A solidly built, fast and capable machine with decent built-in sound and a gigantic disk. Slightly scratch and dent, easily ignorable for the performance and price.
