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...

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 XW6600 and XW4600 Workstations Review

HP TouchSmart 9300 Elite

 

Like most all-in-one PCs, the TouchSmart 9300 Elite doesn't have much interior expansion room. IT folks should be able to easily open the chassis to service the hard drive and memory slots. There are two free SO-DIMM slots for memory expansion. On the...

Large, responsive touch-screen display. Blu-ray player. TouchSmart interface is great. Screen tilts and reclines. Wireless keyboard and mouse. HP LinkUp remote control software. True 1080p HD

No HDMI or DisplayPort input. No USB 3.0. Only 15-day subscription to Norton Internet Security updates. No eSATA. External power brick. Bloatware. No 802.11a/n 5GHz support

The HP TouchSmart 9300 Elite is HP's business version of its successful TouchSmart 610 system. As such, it has a responsive touch screen, an ergonomically friendly 65-degree tilt mechanism, and a whole lot of computing power. This PC is the one to get...

HP Pavilion p7-1167cb

 

The p7-1167cb comes with HP's Premier Image. That means that the hard drive is relatively clear of bloatware; the only extraneous software on the system included Blio eReader and Bing Bar (a browser add-on).

Large 25-inch monitor included. Big 1TB hard drive. Wired keyboard and mouse bundled in. Integrated Wi-Fi. Minimal bloatware. External speakers and video cables bundled in

Two DIMM slots and 300 watt power supply limit future expansion. No HDMI, USB 3.0, or eSATA on board

The HP Pavilion p7-1167cb is a no-muss, no-fuss desktop and monitor bundle that's perfect for the home—and its Core i5 processor is built to last for a few good years before it noticeably starts to slow.
