No parallel port?


No where on the CDW web site does it list the interfaces included with this computer ... you know, the number of USB ports, types of other ports or the fact that this machine DOES NOT have a parallel port. We still use parallel ports in business today....

We just got in some of the Hewlett Packard Pro 3400 Series MT, We opted for the i5, with 4GB of RAM. There nice we have users that the systems are over kill for the work they do but hopefully when we go to replace them in a few years they will not be...

HP Pro 3405 - A series A4-3420 2.8 GHz - Monitor : none.


decent fast business desktop. Construction is fairly light so if feels a bit "budget" next to the HP Smal Form Factor machines we have here, despite outclassing them in terms of performance.

5 stars for simplicity that just works. This PC is nothing to write home about. But for a basic fire and forget piece of hardware, this box is perfect. Not one instance of HW failure.

HP Pro-3405 Microtower

Easy to setup and very quiet. I got the upgrade to 8GB its worth it. It steams along.

Bundled Norton Antivirus was a pain in the they need to get their act together, even when you say you dont want it installed it still does. Grr Easy to uninstall though and install another you dont need to pay for!!!

HP Pro-3405 Microtower


Like windows 7 professional. It is early days but it seems to do what it says on the tin.

Disappointed that it does not have wireless eternet, I did expect that. For me, there is a lot of unwanted junk in the soft ware bundle. It comes preloaded with Office 2010 which has dire revues on Amazon but needs a card for extra money, the good news...
