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: Slim Desktop PC Packs a Few Surprises

 

The slender HP Pavilion Slimline S5-1060 desktop PC boasts solid computing and some fancy features, such as a Blu-ray disc player. Though it has a discrete graphics card, you won't be able to use it for gaming, but if you're looking for a basic home...

Boasts Blu-ray and Wi-Fi ; Slim frame

Lacks advanced connectivity

This slim tower boasts solid computing and a few fancy features, such as a Blu-ray disc player, that boost its appeal.

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.

Amid increasing competition from other mainstream PC vendors, the HP Pavilion Slimline S5-1060 offers a wisely chosen mix of speed and functionality that will appeal to college students and digital media enthusiasts.

HP Z210 CMT

 

The HP Z210 CMT is an entry-level machine, serving as an introduction to the world of workstations. Clad in business-appropriate attire (read: drab), this midtower machine is one of the pricier members of our Business Desktops chart, but stands head...

Readily expandable ; Excellent software

Messy internal wiring

Workstations aren't for everyone. But if you need a powerful PC to work through heavy graphics and 3D tasks, and are willing to pay a bit extra for optimized hardware, the HP Z210 CMT stands out as a business desktop worth considering.

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

Awkward battery hump ; Sluggish TouchSmart software ; Too thick

HP Z200

 

HP's Z200 Workstation SFF desktop is a compact system designed for business users. Packing impressive performance in its modest dimensions, the machine costs just over $2000 (as configured, as of June 1, 2010). That price puts the Z200 on a par with...

Excellent general performance ; Above-average connectivity for its class

Expensive components unbalance the price-to-performance ratio

HP's Z200 offers category-leading performance for business-class desktops, but its premium components will cost you.

HP Z600 Workstation Review

 

It's been a few months since HP launched their Z400, Z600 and Z800 workstations, and we've finally got the company's mid-range Z600 on the SlashGear test bench. A dual-processor monster that HP envisage being used in midrange CAD, financial modelling...

The Z600 range starts from $1,800, though it’s worth repeating that for the dual-processor machine we’ve been testing you’re looking at just over $7,500. That’s a whole lot of money, but then again you get a whole lot of performance for it, and in a...
