      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      It's okay but I would look at something else first.

      I don't really like the material used to made this product. It takes up a lot of space and sometimes it fail to turn on. I'm not sure if it's only mine but when I turn it on, I can here it roaring bit then it quiet down again which is confusing and frustrating. I fear that I may break the computer if I carry on like this. But once it turns on , the majority of the time, it will run smoothly but I really don't like the sound it's producing. I personally wouldn't buy this product again because even if it is running smoothly, sometimes it suddenly stops or slow down. This computer is only suitable for short term use. But this is not reliable at all. You never know when it's going to mess up and I get paranoid with it. The speed is okay, when I have first got this, the computer is very good and fast and smooth, but this is the fourth year I have been using this and the quality really worries me. The is supposed to be for business use, but I certain would look at some other product for the business. I would love to use this at home because it can be convenient to do research but not suitable for soft ware running. The screen is very good and quite clear. Overall I would certainly compare this product with other's before I make up my mind but the price is quite reasonable for the quality of the product.

      Compaq Professional 6000

      Design and Features
      The HP is encased in a black plastic chassis rather than the sleek aluminum found on the Apple iMac. Its 21.5-inch widescreen display has a 16:9 aspect ratio. The screen has tilt movement on a single-piece arm, just like on the iMac. The open design of the arm allows you to place the wireless keyboard under the screen for easy storage. This feature, in my opinion, should be mandatory in other all-in-one desktops, especially when users are space-constrained.

      The back of the desktop has a set of business-friendly ports, including 5 USB 2.0 ports (out of seven total), PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports, Ethernet, audio, and a DisplayPort. The DisplayPort is useful for workers who need a multimonitor setup. On the side, there's the remaining two USB ports, a multiformat card reader (SD and Memory Stick–related formats), a four-pin FireWire port (for camcorders), and another set of audio ports. Since the system is business-oriented, the 6000 Pro comes with a lockable cover for the back I/O ports, which integrates with the built-in Kensington case lock on the back of the system. Though it's lockable and has a chassis intrusion sensor, the 6000 Pro is still easy to open up for service by your IT folks. Two of the back panels open up for access to the two memory slots, the 2.5-inch hard drive bay, and the optical drive bay. Most 6000 Pros can be configured to the needs of your business; my review unit had an Intel Core 2 Duo E7600 processor, 4GB of DDR3-SDRAM, a 320GB, 7,200-rpm hard drive, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and integrated Intel GMA 4500 graphics. The hard drive, processor, memory, and wireless networking are customizable.

      The desktop comes with HP's sourced and customized software, most of which should be useful if your business regularly buys HP Compaq business systems. The 6000 Pro comes with HP Power Assistant software that automatically or manually tweaks the power-saving settings on the system. HP SkyRoom is a high-resolution collaboration tool that combines video conferencing, instant messaging, and screen sharing, including videos and 3D graphics. HP ProtectTools manages your network and client security. HP also includes a version of Mozilla's Firefox browser running in a Virtual Machine environment. That way, your users are somewhat protected from malware sites and poorly constructed Web sites, since the FireFox browser runs protected from Windows 7 and vice versa. You can just run the reset utility from the Start menu, and the original version of FireFox is restored. The 6000 Pro also comes with a TPM 1.2-compliant security chip.

      Advantages

      • "The processor is upgradable"

      • "The base processor for the series is the Intel Celeron 450 running at 2.20 GHz. "

      e HP Compaq 6000 Pro series of computers offer great flexibility for small and medium

      For use in small to medium sized businesses, it’s hard to find a computer that’s more capable and flexible than the HP Compaq 6000 Pro family. The computers are available as a Microtower PC or, for those who need to take advantage of every bit of available space, there’s also a Small Form Factor case that takes up even less room. Regardless of the tower option chosen, the works of the computer are pretty much the same. - See more at:
      Performance

      At the heart of the computer is the Intel Q43 Express chipset. The base processor for the series is the Intel Celeron 450 running at 2.20 GHz. The processor is upgradable through Intel Pentium, Intel Core 2 Duo and maxing out with the Core 2 Quad processor running at 2.66 to 3.0 GHz for each core. There’s always a trade-off between processor power and cost but we believe that most business users are best served by opting for the faster processors since they’ll not only run current applications better but will ultimately provide a longer life cycle for the computer as programs and requirements inevitably change. For users who opt for the AMD processors, options start with the AMD Sempron and graduate up through dual and triple core processors with the ultimate option being the AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core.
      Summary

      The HP Compaq 6000 Pro series of computers offer great flexibility for small and medium sized business requirements. They allow for balancing computing needs with financial constraints that any business must consider and offer a lot of bang for the buck.

      Advantages

      • "The processor is upgradable"

      Disadvantages

      • "base processor for the series is the Intel Celeron 450 "

      Affordable for the price and has a good balance between cost and reliability

      Memory:
      Memory for the base unit is 2 GB, but that’s upgradeable to 16 GB using the four available DIMM memory slots. Like processor speed, it'll usually be better to get more when purchasing the computer rather than to buy less than what you need and have to add it in after you've bought it.
      OS:
      Microsoft Windows 7 Professional is provided as the operating system but users have the option of downgrading to Windows XP Professional, so it's really your choice. I would go with Windows 7 because it has better security features, but it's your call. You can encrypt your harddrive with the software that comes with it, too. Two independent audio streams allow for multible VoIP (voice over ip) phone calls and speaker usage, which is helpful.
      General overview:
      The HP Compaq 6000 Pro series offers great flexibility for smaller sized business requirements. They are affordable for the price and are a good balance between cost and reliability.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Overall it's sturdy designed.

      The HP Compaq 6000 Pro series of business computers are among the top reasons that the once maligned Hewlett-Packard mark has become well respected and ubiquitous among both business and personal use PCs. Just about everything about the series of computers is customizable to fit the needs of individual users. The custom features even go as far as being able to specify the CPU manufacturer. While the HP Compaq 6000 Pro uses a variety of Intel chips, there is a corresponding line called the HP Compaq 6005 Pro series which opts for AMD processors. Either way, this is a family of computers that will serve most medium and small businesses very well.

      For use in small to medium sized businesses, it’s hard to find a computer that’s more capable and flexible than the HP Compaq 6000 Pro family. The computers are available as a Microtower PC or, for those who need to take advantage of every bit of available space, there’s also a Small Form Factor case that takes up even less room. Regardless of the tower option chosen, the works of the computer are pretty much the same.



      Memory for the base unit is 2 GB of DDR3 SDRAM but that’s upgradeable to 16 GB using the four available DIMM memory slots. Like processor speed, it’s generally going to be better to get more when purchasing the computer rather than to scrimp now only to realize that an upgrade is needed in short order.



      Hard drive options begin with a 160GB 7200 RPM unit up to 500GB at 7200 RPM or from 80GB to 160GB at 10,000 RPM speed. One of our favorite options is to add a 64GB solid state drive, i.e. no moving parts, for faster booting and launching of applications. HP refers to the combination of the solid state drive and a convention hard drive RapidDrive. Available optical drives include DVD-ROM, LightScribe DVD Writer and Blu-ray Writer drives.

      • "Not good for gaming"

      Portable and excellentfor both personal and office use.

      The HP Compaq 6000 Pro All-in-One (AIO) PC is something I like to call the buttoned-up corporate cousin to the Apple iMac. Both all-in-ones feature similar looks, with a minimalist design, a curved stand, and a 21.5-inch display. It comes bundled with a wireless keyboard and mouse. The HP Compaq 6000 Pro is an attractive option for businesses that may be short on space, but the usual all-in-one caveat applies, particularly for budget-conscious enterprises: You’ll get more for your money and more flexible upgrade options with a traditional desktop tower and a separate monitor. While the HP Compaq 6000 Pro boasts a fairly well-rounded feature set for an all-in-one, its Core 2 Duo processor can’t compete with Core i3 and i5 processors found in similarly priced consumer all-in-one PCs but it is relatively fast and will give you one of the best experience you van have with a desktop.
      This system boasts a pleasing design, even if most will agree it can’t match the appeal of the sleek Apple iMac. The design is simple and straightforward and includes nothing that would clash with even the most staid of corporate environs. A fairly wide (1.3-inch) glossy black bezel frames the display, which is supported by a simple, curved stand. The stand provides a wide degree of tilt adjustment, and it also creates a space below the display to stash the keyboard when not in use. A speaker bar runs the length of the bottom edge of the system. it also comprise five USB 2.0 ports, Display Port, a Gigabit Ethernet jack, a single audio port, and two PS/2 ports for older keyboards and mice that undoubtedly populate the desks of many enterprises. Along the left side, you’ll find two more USB 2.0 ports, a mini-FireWire port, headphone and mic jacks, and a multi-format flash-card slot. For a business machine, it provides an impressive number of expansion ports for almost any external device.Also features Nvidia GeForce GT230 graphics with 1GB of video memory, it’s a low-end card that won’t turn the system into an after-hours gaming rig for the office and at home. The display has a native resolution of 1,920x1,080 and a 16:9 aspect ratio, which provides for full-HD video playback. For business, the fine resolution means a greater workspace. We were able to work comfortably with two documents open side by side on the desktop.

      A very good system for your business

      The HP Compaq 6000 Pro all in one business PC which i bought for 1,109 dollars has infused IMAC's design and put it in on a super business class PC. It is able to create docs from websites to digital files. If you need an all in one desktop that will save you some much needed space in your office, then I think you should consider the HP Compaq 6000 professional.
      It is a 21.5 inch widescreen VDU with an aspect ratio of 16:9. It has tilt movement on a single piece arm, which is similar to that of the IMAC. Because of the open design, you can put the wireless keyboard there when you are not working on the system for convenience and space management.
      At the back of the desktop, I found 5 USB 2.0 jacks and 2 USB 2.0 jacks on the sides. There is also a multi format SD card reader ports. I was able to work fast because everything was loading very fast thanks to the desktop's Core 2 Duo E7600 processor and 4GB DDR3 memory. The video quality I got was amazing when I tried to open some online video files because of its 1080p HD feature. The hard disk drive is 320GB which in my opinion is good enough space but that can always be remedied if your space requirement is more than that by using external HDD. Aside from the fact that it is not a 3D system (which will not appeal to gamers) but this can be forgiven because the system is specifically designed for business purpose, it has exceeded my expectations in design, speed and compactness.

      It looks plenty like Apple iMac. I got it as a present therefore i believe it's pretty smart. it's a 21" widescreen monitor that is pretty smart and enough for many things, however it's not therefore huge that you just might have issues running games on its native resolution. You get a wireless keyboard with it and you get five usb two.0 ports (and there ar seven in total). you furthermore may get show port, card reader, firewire, two sets of audio ports. additionally its Core two pair processor was over enough for my work ANd an occasional game. four GiG's of RAM DDR3 memory. though its 320GB HDD (in my unit) was somewhat limiting. however you'll customise HDD processor, memory and wireless networking. you furthermore may get uncountable H.P. bloatware thereon. a minimum of i believe it's bloatware.

      Also it's graphics card is not smart if you intend on running some games. you'll perhaps play atomic number 55, decision of Duty two or some older titles, whereas you cannot even consider running the newer games.

      I additionally like it's movability. as a result of its dead one issue, you'll simply move it from one table to a different. I additionally just like the area below the show that permits you to slip the keyboard under that and unencumber thereforeme area on your table for papers (I have uncountable papers so I notice it very useful).

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Best for Office use :)

      The HP Compaq 6000 joins a somewhat concise rundown of business-driven holding nothing back ones. At $1139 (as of February 15, 2011) its not exactly as practical as a portion of the buyer arranged plan towers or in with no reservations ones on our diagrams, to say nothing of the Sandy Bridge-prepared offerings on our standard diagram -the Micro Express MicroFlex 25B dips as low as $850. That said, the Compaq 6000 Pro has a couple of IT-accommodating traps up its sleeve.

      Pressed behind the 21.5-inch presentation is a 3GHz Core 2 Duo processor- -a stalwart, however emphatically antiquated, segment. Coupled with 4GB of DDR3 RAM, that CPU helped the PC procure a WorldBench 6 score of 116. From an execution point of view, the Compaq 6000 grounds comfortable top of the monetary allowance in with no reservations one classification.

      The capacity limit is far less great -the Compaq 6000 has a small 500GB, though some of its shopper arranged rivalry has edged more like 1TB. In case you're working in a little business environment that depends on system stockpiling, this won't be a lot of an issue, however remember this confinement. As befitting a business desktop, the Compaq 6000 runs the 64-bit adaptation of Windows 7 Professional.

      Representation execution is astonishing. The machine packs a Nvidia GT 230 GPU, a huge venture up from the incorporated Intel design we're by and large used to seeing. It arrived at 35 casings every second on our Unreal Tournament benchmark (1680 by 1050 determination, most noteworthy settings), outpacing its rival by a reasonable edge: The HP All-In-One 200, MSI Wind Top AE2220, and HP TouchSmart 310 all neglected to post playable casing rates.

      By and large we need to discount gaming while testing business machines (and most holding nothing back ones), yet the Compaq 6000 superior to normal execution looks good for anybody looking to get a touch of design escalated work done.

      Show quality is okay; nothing awesome is at play here. Shading propagation is exact, however not particularly energetic. The splendor controls sit on the right half of the machine, nearby the DVD copier. Feature playback is impeccable (of course, given the representation equipment). Too bad, this specific showcase is not a touchscreen. On the off chance that poking at a screen is fundamental to your work process, the Lenovo ThinkCentre M90z offers a multitouch show, in a bigger shell. The implicit speakers are satisfactory. While uproarious, they don't exactly fill a room, which is fine for an office domain (ideal, even). They sound rather decent, as well -some more bass would be incredible, however the sound is clear and fresh.

      The Compaq 6000 network choices are about normal for the class. On the left, you'll discover the multiformat card peruser, a couple of USB ports, the earphone and mouthpiece jacks, and a four-pin FireWire port. The back offers five more USB ports; in case you're not kidding about security and you require those to be handicapped every now and then, you'll additionally discover PS/2 serial connectors for a mouse and console. Varying media ports comprise of a DisplayPort connector and a sound yield jack. The gigabit ethernet port is supplemented by implicit 802.11n network; both are standard supplements for the classification.

      Anyway here's something that isn't standard: Lay the Compaq 6000 all over (after you've stopped it, obviously), and you can utilize a flathead screwdriver to pop off the back board. It's not as exquisite as the ThinkCentre M90z's apparatus free get to, yet at the same time an exceedingly uncommon peculiarity for holding nothing back ones.

      Inner access is a gimmick that is ostensibly essential for breaking into the business market. In the event that that dark tower around your work area quits chugging along one day, you (or your IT pro) can pop off the cover and tinker inside, making practical overhauls or repairs without being obligated to the organization you obtained the machine from. The Compaq 6000 isn't about as agreeable to changes as a legitimate tower stage seems to be, however its groups in front of the greater part of the holding nothing back ones that go through our labs.

      Inside, you'll have the capacity to swap out the RAM, hard commute, and optical commute by evacuating boards that cover areas on the back of the skeleton. The framework doesn't have space for embeddings extra parts, however in the event that you'd like to supplant the DVD copier with an extra Blu-beam drive, you'll be fine. The whole unit is additionally VESA-mount agreeable, for strapping to an articulating arm or appending to a divider.

      The Compaq 6000 doesn't offer much in the method for additional items. The packaged console and mouse are remote, interfacing through a dongle (which takes up one of the accessible USB ports). They're standard HP charge: The console offers some media-playback controls and is genuinely agreeable to sort on, while the mouse is plain however utilitarian. You'll discover minimal physical documentation, however a spate of nonexclusive manuals are accessible on the machine as PDF documents. Programming incorporates HP's Protect Tools and a trial of HP's Virtual Rooms programming for community oriented undertakings.

      In the event that your office need a bigger hard commute, propelled integration choices like FireWire and eSATA, or even only a touchscreen, you'll discover a lot of alternatives on our financial plan and extra large screen in with no reservations one outlines. The HP Compaq 6000 succeeds as a serious workhorse, conveying solid execution and usefulness in a svelte shell.

      Pretty good work All-In-One desktop PC

      It looks a lot like Apple iMac. I got it as a gift so I think it's pretty good. It has a 21" widescreen monitor which is pretty good and enough for most things, but it is not so big that you may have problems running games on its native resolution. You get a wireless keyboard with it and you get 5 usb 2.0 ports (and there are 7 in total). You also get display port, card reader, firewire, 2 sets of audio ports. Also its Core 2 Duo processor was more than enough for my work and an occasional game. 4 GiG's of RAM DDR3 memory. Although its 320GB HDD (in my unit) was a bit limiting. But you can customize HDD processor, memory and wireless networking. You also get lots of HP bloatware on it. At least I think it's bloatware.

      Also it's graphics card isn't very good if you plan on running some games. You can maybe play CS, Call of Duty 2 or some older titles, while you can't even think of running the newer games.

      I also like it's portability. Because its All in one factor, you can easily move it from one desk to another. I also like the space under the display which allows you to slide the keyboard under it and free up some space on your desk for papers (I have lots of papers so I find it really useful). A thing I would like to see on this PC is touchscreen capability of its display, I think it would really round a pretty good work PC.
