HP All-in-One Computer EliteOne 705 G1 (T6K52US#ABA) A6-Series APU A6 PRO-7400B (3.50 GHz) 4 GB DDR3 500 GB HDD 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Comes with Windows 7 Professional which is familiar to those upgrading from XP (finally.) All-in-one convenience (space saving, up off the floor, etc.) Sound is adequate for regular Windows beeps and boops.

Cons: Not touch screen (for when you opt to upgrade to Windows 10.) Could be faster (more RAM.) All-in-one's are harder to upgrade. plastic cover for bundling wiring below system is a pain to install (I leave it off.) HP bloatware eats up installed RAM - uninstall unnecessary and unwanted software. Keyboard and mouse are both wired.

Other Thoughts: Not a speed demon or in any way a gaming system but serves a home or small business well. Easy upgrade from XP and currently eligible to upgrade to Windows 10 for free (no knowledge of how it would perform after an upgrade to 10.)

Rosewill RS-MI-01 BK - Mini ITX Tower / Desktop Computer Case - 250W Power Supply with Two (2) SATA Connectors and One (1) 20 + 4-Pin Connector
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Neat small desktop size.

Cons: Power button is not lit - power and hard drive activity lights are inside small groves to the bottom right and barely visible.
Full size hard drive installs I the bottom bay and negates the use of the front opening behind the bottom panel for let's say a card reader installation.
A full size hard drive "butts" into any RAM module with a heatsink that extends over the top of the RAM.
The top of the heatsink and fan for the CPU is less than a 1/2 inch away from the bottom of the power supply interfering with both the cooling of the power supply and the CPU.

Other Thoughts: I know size is the main reason to buy cases such as this, to minimize desktop space taken up by the computer but there are better designed cases out there that accomplish the same objective without sacrificing a good build.

HP 200-G1 Desktop PC (L5L54US#ABA) Pentium J2900 (2.41GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB HDD Windows 7 Professional Pre-installed with Windows 8.1 Pro License
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Inexpensive replacement for outdated and unsupported XP systems. Fast enough. HD is big enough. Win 7 PRO is familiar enough to XP users. Can be upgraded to 10 for free.

Cons: Only three USB ports on the back, two are USB 2.0 and one is USB 3.0 - The mouse and keyboard included are USB and plugging them into the back leaves only one USB left for the printer or any other USB device. 2 USB ports on the front are 2.0

Other Thoughts: Easy to "run out of" USB ports for existing or current peripherals.
