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...

Just what Grandma needed


Was defiantly worth the cost of admission, Grandma's internet browsing computer was really old and dated and starting to fail. This is a great internet / word processing machine. It has plenty of USB ports front and back. Also after completing all the...

Windows 7 Professional, 1 TB hard drive, 4 gig DDR 3, not loaded with a ton of bloatware and the free trial software that was included took less than 10 minutes to uninstall, price was less than cost of OS at the shell shock price I paid for the...

CPU a little dated, included DVD drive is player only, keyboard has a malfunctioning space bar and has to be pressed just right to get it to work, Motherboard does not use a standard power supply and drives are powered through Motherboard its self

Great deal!


If you have someone that needs a very cut and dry, but fast, machine. This is the one to go for! I had a spare Displayport cord around, and it did make the monitor put out a better image. The Windows image installs quickly (5-10 min) and you're in...

I was skeptical, but had a customer on a tony budget. I was surprised how clean it was inside and out ; Clean ; Great specs ; Easy Windows install and registration ; Monitor is very nice

Still gets 5 eggs because they had to go cheap in some places for the price to be this low ; Keyboard and mouse are VERY cheaply made, but they work 100

Blue screened to death


I spent hours and hours searching and reading forums to fix the problem. Any suggestion given did not work. Finally I called newegg customer service and they tried a few things, but finally decided there was an un-fixable problem and had me return it....

1TB HDD. 4GB RAM. Windows 7. Runs fast for a cheap computer

Computer would not come out of sleep mode without showing the blue screen and then restarting. Very frustrating
