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

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

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

Bang for the Buck!


Excellent Win7 small footprint PC. Needs more RAM. Might as well throw a SSD in it too.

Great value


To use a video card, I bought a sata to 6-pin adaptor for $4.00. Works great now.

Nice computer. I upgraded to Windows 10 right away and put in a old AMD 5770 video card. My nephew games on it all the time, works great for older games and newer games on lower settings

No 6-Pin PCI cable to plug in a video card

Nice and small

Of the 3 I ordered, 2 had power supplies fail days after warranty ran out, they must know when they fail. The power supply is now one made in Germany, not china, if you buy get the updated power supply right away. Nice its external, easy to replace
