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.

I purchased this PC as a back-up for my small business. It arrived in virtually unmarked condition, and works as intended

Plugged it in when i first got it and immedialtely got mebx errors. called newegg and they said they could replace it if the steps to fix it didnt work ; So Call the company and they say sure it can be fixed just ship it back to canada and they will...

What might have been......


AST (Authorized Refurbisher) has poor QC. Then again, I didn't buy from them, I bought from NewEgg. I expected the replacement to be completely tested and work right out of the box. Both should have; neither did. I'm new to NewEgg after the shutdown of...

none - tried two and neither would work at all

First one received - Windows Registry Errors / Broken Windows File Associations. Returned. Second one - Windows wouldn't even start in Safe Mode. No installation disk for W7 so I was done at that point

Good Product


If I paid more for a new machine, I would have had to uninstall Windows 8 and worry about driver compatibility before installing Windows 7. This is a great way to get the best OS installed and skip that Windows 8 garbage that they made for $500 tablets...

Windows 7 x64 installed. It does a final install process when first booted so you can choose username and password. Very well done ; The unit has been in an office environment in a critical role for about 3 weeks, invoicing with enterprise accounting...

I buy a lot of refurbished computers and laptops never had one this bad. I don't mind putting a little effort but this is ridiculous.No even any good parts to salvage.


Would not boot.bios error. mismatched memory HHD errors when it finally did boot after multiple does not close completely bent in several places.Keyboard keys had fallen out.No response to emails. Pretty much junk

Consumer review by:

I expected better from AST


Shipping was several days late also.

Price. (I guess I got what I paid for)

Won't boot into Windows. Does AST not check that the PC will boot before they ship?? Many emails and phone calls with AST, still no resolution after 3 days. HDD and memory pass all diagnostics. Seems to be just a bad install of Windows. I could easily...

Great performance


This is an impressive PC even though it is now brand new. The price was also impressive for the specs ; I am particularly impressed with the FREE shipping. I ordered this on a Monday before noon and received it on Tuesday before noon. AWESOME
