      Get one anyway

      Hewlett Packard is a well-known brand leader in the computer electronics market place; I have one at home, and one at work. This Dc7900 model lends itself very well to home and business applications, where it is probably preferred by most users.

      These days, processing speed is a pre-requisite irrespective of the environment in which the device is to be used, and HP take advantage of cutting edge technology provided by Intel in the form of their 2 quad Q9550 processor. The ultra-fast 4 core operating speed for this model is about 2.8 Ghz, thereby providing a number of task operations simulataneously. Assuming that the computer uses Windows Vista, then obviously it wlll need at least 2 Ghz of operationmal speed for smooth running, despite its seeming inferiority to XP. However, there is a further assumption that the successor generation to Vista, 7, will provide some marked operationally improved performances.

      Looking now at cache memory, the device holds 12 megabytes all told.

      The machine also has excellent operational capabilities, including smooth use of MS Office 2007 and Autocad 2009. The device may well need an upgrade at some point if the user wants to install more advanced features as PC technologies evolve.

      But, there is no doubt that the machine is a modern emergent from the HP labs, reliable, and as good as you get from this type of consumer durable. A word to the wise, however; don't buy on line if you can avoid it; I suggest getting it from a high street store so that in the unlikely event of everything going base over apex, you can take it back and dump it on the Customer Relations desk and demand some action in front of other putative customers. You'll soon see some movement, and especially if you quote the Consumer Credit Act or similar at them. Check that out on Martin Lewis' website for further information.

      Very good all around machine that will assist any business in its office needs.

      This is a very smart slimline PC. Very sleak and modern in design and looks. Being so slim it can fit in a very small space so as not using too much valuable desk space.
      The machine is of a high spec with regards to current day specifications with its Core 2 Due processor etc. And as it is part of HPs most stable range, you wont find many occassions when it freezes etc (none of mine ever have yet).
      A good offer when buying this is the XP Downgrade offer from Vista, as not all businesses have got 100% Vista capable applications (like my own).
      There is a drawback, due to its small design it has a look all of its own inside the case, so difficult to purchase upgrades as HP will be one of the only places you can get them from.
      If you want a good high spec PC that will work really well for your business, this is definatley worth a look.

        In the correct environment a superb alternative to a traditional sized computer

        The HP DC7900 Ultra Slim Desktop is a product born from a market leading manufacturer. With any kind of electronic equipment, the phrase "you get what you pay for" is very true.

        Having very small dimensions and being ultra light weight, the Ultra Slim Desktop is built around the laptop design, using a similar type of design for the DVD drive whereby the drive pop's out slightly and you can then pull it out manually further, insert the cd and push it back in.

        Within a minimal amount of moving parts it also means that the product is less prone to hardware failure compared to a standard desktop or tower built computer.

        With high specifications and the option of the HP Care Pack which typically offers same day or next business day onsite warranty including parts and labour for a minimal amount, this product should definately be considered for the business environment where space is a concern.

        This product is not ideal for home users or those that have specific needs that may required hardware upgrades as the computer has very limited upgradability due to its design.
