HP Pavilion Mini review: Tiny desktop packs big storage

 

The HP Pavilion Mini is a basic PC for media or Web surfing that won't get in the way.

The HP Pavilion Mini costs less than other small desktops, offers options for the CPU and hard drive, and allows for user upgrades later on. A wireless keyboard and mouse are included.

Even the top-end hardware configuration is slow, and there are no options for SSD hard drives or faster Wi-Fi.

Smaller and less expensive than a Mac Mini, the HP Pavilion Mini focuses on big storage over fast performance.

Great computer in small footprint for little money

 

The old XP box was dying and I started to shop around for mini box to replace it. Nice to see the top of my crowded desk again. This puppy is twice everything (except size) that old faithful was, and quite too.

Size, dual video output.

Does not provide aux heat for cold days

Awesome little box

 

Wow, this box is as small as a portable dvd player. So far no issues, it's powerful enough, doesn't overheat or noisy. It fits perfectly in plain sight but is never noticed as it looks like a peripheral device. The wireless keyboard and mouse is...

Great overall

 

I would rate this as overall 'a great product'. One of the drawbacks is in learning Windows 8. That's been the biggest hurtle for me and my family to overcome. The other big drawback is no DVD player. I didn't realize that until it arrived, although...

Great Media Center PC

 

This review is also on Amazon with a few additions. I just purchased this "mini" pc from HP and configured it as a media PC using KODI XBMC. The pros are: small size and weight, 7200 RPM drive, and good price for what it does. The cons and why I only...
