5 out of 5 eggsa good PC for a low price

Pros: Small, portable and the specs blow every other PC in this price range out of the water.

Cons: As some one already mentioned it comes with Vista nough said. Shared video ram is annoying. All the junkware that HP installed takes a while to get ride of.

Other Thoughts: Over all I highly recommend this PC to anybody. As is it can run all of the high end applications and games very nicely. Although I'd recommend at some point upgrading the memory and throwing in your oun video card.

5 out of 5 eggsCool mini PC

Pros: The HP Pavilion s3323w gives you outstanding value for an exceptional low price. Given the fact that the MB inside (ASUS N2N61-AR) is the same as in the much more expensive models s3420f and s3500f, you can easy upgrade the CPU from X2 4800+ to 5600+ (2.9G) for less than 90 bucks and replace memory with a couple of gigs DDR2 800, I recommend Kingston HyperX 2GB, available from the Egg of course. And to turn it in a perfect little business machine, add a PCIe Quadro 4 NVS290
The end result is a powerful sff machine on a shoestring.

Cons: A major con is that all HP Pavilions come with Vista, an OS that because of its build-in DRM (Digital Restrictions Management) occupies a major part of of the hardware capabilities on the behest of the entertainment industry.
A much better match for this- and other s3xxx versions of the Pavilions is Windows XP, but unfortunately HP has gone out of their way to make the change to XP as difficult as possible for the average user. Yet it is easily possible, see other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: There are 2 open source OS that work well with the s3323w, Linux UBUNTU, or KUBUNTU, installation is quick and drivers for all hardware are on the installation CD's.
To re-install XP, you must have the nForce 405 unified driver package from NVidia, and the Realtec sound driver for the ALC888 chipset, both available online.
Armed with the aforementioned driver sets a perfect working XP installation on a s3323w can be completed in about 30 minutes.
And if you wonder why bother to purge Vista from your machine, then find the website of The Free Software Foundation, read what is published about Vista, and make your own conclusions.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat deal

Pros: This machine is a steal, For $329, one would expect a low spec system to have 515 mb of Ram, a small hard drive, and a single core processor. But this little thing as you can see from the specs this thing is more or less a medium end machine.
Runs very quick and quiet.

Cons: The machine is very thin. I am not sure that a PCI-E card could actually fit in the slot. I've taken my PCI card from another machine and it was wider than the case of this machine.

Hopefully though there is enough room, It might even require some modifications to the case itself, which is disappointing.

Other Thoughts: I'm very satisfied with the machine given the low cost. Its pretty cheap to upgrade it to 4 gigs of Ram and throw in an SD card for some ready boost.
