Description

Neat little mini desktop computer. Low power, moderate performance, low price.

Uses the new Intel Atom processor, good for web surfing, email, and basic office stuff... don't try hardcore gaming on this. Includes XP--no Vista worries on this one!


Interesting pricing on this... 269.99 at Micro Center and at Compaq direct (shopping.hp.com, but out of stock)... more expensive at amazon and everywhere else.

    Opened and set it up. This thing is the size of a pop-up toaster! Plenty of speed. Very impressed.

      Is Atom fast enough? I am afraid to buy a desktop with a CPU that is meant to be used in mobile devices

      I have installed all my needed software, downloaded and installed updates, opened and gently used QuickBooks, MS Word, MS Excel. Run a reasonable quantity of Firefox and Thunderbird traffic. I found no noticeable speed difference as compared to my Sempron 1.8 GHz laptop or my P4 2.0 GHz desktop (i.e. it is certainly not appreciably slower than what I am used to using). Over 2 days, I am completely pleased with the performance.
