HP Compaq 8000f Elite Ultra Slim Desktop


Business-class computers like the HP Compaq 8000f Elite are a complicated bunch. Aimed at a market segment with particular maintenance and security needs, they tend to offer improved hardware and software functionality, while sacrificing elements of...

Comprehensive software platform ; Small, silent chassis

Limited storage space

HP's Compaq 8000f Elite offers business-centric performance in a bite-size PC, but fumbles on a few essentials.

Desktop PC Review: HP Compaq 8000 Elite


Getting the system set up was simple and straightforward: Just connect the cables, power up the machine, and set a few Windows options, and you'll be up and running in moments. Our review unit came loaded with the 64-bit version of Windows 7...

Eco-friendly manufacturing, Compact design, Supports Intel vPro technology, Above-average warranty

Limited configuration options, No expansion-card slots, Relatively cramped hard drive

Any company looking to equip its business with a fleet of environmentally friendly, power-stingy, compact desktops that can be remotely managed should seriously consider the 8000f—as long as they can abide by its limitations. These include a relatively...

3 out of first four had problems


I would approach these with caution! If you are looking to purchase quantities, get a few in first and then confirm before placing the bigger order.

Nice Configuration for the money (if and when they work)

First three of four purchased units had issues - two hard disk drives and then a DVD player. Unfortunately this was before I placed much larger orders! Also, having many issues with getting the Win 7 Image process to work, so I can pre-prep the units...

Title doesn't match description


Title doesn't match the description. is it 2.4 or 3.0? Is it 7x64j or 7i386? Ram and HDD don't match either... guess you could buy it and hope you get the better one and if you get the lesser, the parts are still worth more than the whole.

Description tells of a good solid computer. But which one is it

Title is an ok computer. Which one is it

Good Deal turns out to be even better.


I am a NEWEGG EGGSPERT REVIEWER but I was not asked to review this product, I purchased it on my own for my personal use. I am impressed with what I got for the price I got it at. I now know why HP stock has about doubled in the past year. I Ordered...

Mine was on sale -free shipping ; Mine came with a 250Gb disk, not 160Gb ; There is an empty 3.5 disk expansion slot inside ; Mine had 2 empty memory DIMM slots for expansion ; Mother board has 2 empty SATA connections ; Plenty of USB 2.0 and 2 USB 3.0...

Keyboard was not HP ; Mouse was not HP

Nice Box for the price


Only comes with VGA and Display port. Might be hard to find decent graphics card in the slim form factor but it does have PCIe slot.

Very well built one of HP's better machines. Internals were very clean, comes with 4 memory slots so kicking up the RAM is easy. Came with Windows 7 Pro and 4 GB. Great for a small office or an internet machine

Internal fan was very noisey on first boot but quieted down after OS fully booted
