HP TouchSmart PC review


Touchscreen, SmartCenter software, compact within its size

Large, to get full benefit have to have it in your kitchen or lounge

Having lived with the PC in the home environment for over a week we have to say that while good, it's not without its problems and that problem for UK homeowners being the size. For this PC, you will have to place it in an area of your home that gets...

HP Compaq 8100 Elite review


There are plenty of connections and it has a well-designed interior that makes the HP Compaq 8100 Elite an easy desktop PC to maintain and expand. The only drawback is that it has a sluggish graphics card that makes it unsuitable for heavy graphics or...

For businesses that need more than just the basic office machine, the HP Compaq 8100 Elite is compact and yet easy to maintain and use. It offers good performance, too.

HP TouchSmart 610 touchscreen all-in-one PC


Review This is going to be good. I reviewed the first TouchSmart 600 [1] all-in-one home desktop computer in January 2010, and loved it, frankly. I fondly remember Reg Hardware readers expressing their admiration for my gushing praise at the time......

By all rights, I ought to be singing my adoration of this updated HP TouchSmart. It is clearly an improvement on the original 600, with its extreme display angle adjustment, and good audio quality. The touchscreen is exceptional too. However, this time...

HP Compaq 8100 Elite (WM193PA) small form factor PC


HP's Compaq 8100 Elite is a small form factor (SFF) PC aimed at business users who need to do more than just word processing and e-mail. There are plenty of connections and it has a well-designed interior that makes it an easy desktop PC to maintain...

Comprehensive connectivity, good performance for CPU-intensive tasks, hard drive and memory are easily accessible ;

Poor integrated graphics, no Wi-Fi/Bluetooth ;

Our review unit already had the Windows XP downgrade applied so we couldn't test its performance in Futuremark's 3DMark Vantage benchmark suit, which requires Windows Vista or Windows 7. Nevertheless, in all other benchmarks, the Compaq 8100 Elite...

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.
