HP Pavilion P7-1520t CTO

 

With its solid performance and decent feature set, the HP Pavilion P7-1520t CTO is a good choice for users with a tight budget on the market for a Windows 8-equipped desktop.

Affordable. Can accommodate some internal expansion. Discrete GPU

Limited port selection. Bloatware

The HP Pavilion P7-1520t CTO (starts at $549.99, $679.99 direct as tested) is a Windows 8-equipped budget desktop that offers users solid performance alongside a decent feature set for an affordable price. It has a few shortcomings—including bloatware...

HP Pavilion P7-1235

 

Although much of the spotlight has lately been focused on ultrabooks and all-in-one systems, desktops have steadfastly continued to remain a viable option, especially for users on a budget. This rings especially true in the case of the HP Pavilion...

Affordable. Can accommodate some internal expansion. USB 3.0. Integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Decent integrated GPU

Sluggish performance. Loaded with bloatware. Limited discrete GPU upgradeability. No HDMI output. Monitor not included

Despite the HP Pavilion P7-1235's reasonable price tag, better systems with more nimble processing power or included monitors make for better options.

HP Pavilion p7-1225

 

The HP Pavilion p7-1125 makes a name for itself with decent 3D performance using integrated graphics. It's a bright spot on an otherwise run-of-the-mill tower desktop.

Some expandability. Quad-core processor. DX11-compatible integrated graphics with decent performance. Wi-Fi. 8GB of memory and 1TB hard drive

Slower on Photoshop. Bloatware. No eSATA, USB 3.0, or HDMI video ports. Only 4 USB ports

HP TouchSmart 9300 Elite: The Consummate Workhorse

 

HP's TouchSmart 9300 Elite is a business-centric, all-in-one powerhouse. It may not be much to look at, but it delivers excellent performance, sits on an easy-to-adjust stand, and even tackles multimedia rather well.

Reclining design is very comfortable to use ; Strong multimedia playback

Lacks HDMI or USB 3.0 ports

This system performs business tasks with ease and delivers just enough multimedia power to keep your from getting too distracted.

HP Pavilion Slimline s5-1060 (Core i5 2310 2.9 GHz)

 

As a kitted-out media slim tower, the HP Pavilion Slimline S5-1060 offers few surprises given its price and its specifications, despite an updated chassis design. This system will provide you with capable day-to-day performance, and a versatile...

The HP Pavilion Slimline S5-1060 boasts a versatile assortment of home entertainment features in an attractive, reasonably fast computer.

A competing slim-tower PC from Lenovo offers similar features and faster performance in the same price range.

HP TouchSmart tm2t review

 

Let's not forget that before "tablets" were all the rage there were, well, tablets. While most tablet PCs were -- and still are -- aimed at the business

Attractive touch interface ; Responsive capacitive touchscreen ; Stellar chiclet keyboard

HP Pavilion p7-1030

 

The p7-1030 offers VGA and DVI video outputs, for hooking the desktop up to an external monitor or display—you could even utilize both outputs simultaneously for a dual-monitor setup. You won't be able to use your HDTV as a monitor, though, as there's...

Big 1TB hard drive. Intel Core i3 CPU and 8GB of RAM. 802.11n Wi-Fi included

Short trial-period on security software. Too much needless bloatware. No HDMI, eSATA, or USB 3.0 ports

The HP Pavilion p7-1030 is a mid-range desktop that gives you an Intel Core i3 processor with 8GB of RAM, a full terabyte of storage space, and room to grow with an upgrade or two.

HP Pavilion p7-1187c

 

The back of the tower offers up four more USB 2.0 ports, DVI and VGA vide ouputs (which can be used simultaneously), microphone input, and audio outputs that support six-channel sound. Two of those USB ports, however, will be filled thanks to the...

Intel Core i5 processor. Big 1TB hard drive. Wi-Fi-enabled. 180-day trial of Norton Internet Security 2012. Costco offers 2-year warranty

No USB 3.0. Integrated graphics. Uninspired design

The HP Pavilion p7-1187c has a few extras that aren't always available at this price, like an Intel Core i5 processor, a 1 TB hard drive, and six months of security.
