HP Business Desktop D8C29UT Desktop Computer - Intel Core i7 i7-3770 3.40 GHz - Convertible Mini-tower
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Super fast, stable, cheap for the performance

Cons: Can't put a new graphics card in it! HP has a proprietary Power Supply and Motherboard - there's no 20+4 connector for upgrading the power supply, therefore they don't want you to actually USE any of the expansion slots they provide.
Bad mistake HP...

HP Business Desktop D8C26UT Desktop Computer - Intel Core i7 i7-3770 3.40 GHz - Convertible Mini-tower

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Processor cooks fast! Rebooting takes less than 1 minute. Stable, fast operating system.

Cons: Big mistake HP - they used a motherboard that only works with the 300W power supply. If you plan on installing a graphics card or any device that requires more power, you cannot install/upgrade it. The power supply / motherboard is a unique configuration. The motherboard does not have a 20+4 PSU plug and only has 2 6-pin power supplies to SATA for the HDD and CD Drives.

I returned this PC due to this configuration.

Other Thoughts: This would have been a great PC to own if HP didn't cut their own feet off by not making this PC upgradable. Very upsetting.
