HP Pavilion a1120n


If you are a Windows-based Apple iPod or "iPod + HP" user, then the decision is a no-brainer: The a1120n is a top-level choice if your budget runs under $1,000. HP Tunes, the conduit between iTunes and the Media Center Edition, lets you play...

Media Center Edition OS in a sub-$1,000 package. Seamless integration between HP?s mul-timedia apps and MCE. Nice 17-inch LCD

No PCIe or AGP expansion slot. Ball mouse

The a1120n is another inexpensive Media Center from HP without a TV tuner: If you can live without TV, the Pavilion a1120n is a good PC for students and home users toting iPods and digicams.
