Hp's Slimline Pavilion s7600c has a core plus concluded late incarnations of HP's small-form-factor design: a dual-core CPU. Thanks to AMD's new file of energy-efficient Athlon 64 X2 chips, HP can now fight with the Mac Mini as a powerful, feature-rich flyspeck PC. The Mac Mini has a massiveness and philosophy advantage; it's double as small, and its rinse lines cut a improved profile. But what the Pavilion Slimline sacrifices in space-savings and slap-up looks, it gains in practicality and recitation. It's as well smaller amount expensive. Although our revaluation config price $975, once you balance out the eyeglasses to meeting those of the 1.83GHz Mac Mini Core Duo, the Slimline gets the win. If you're looking for an affordable, close-packed computer to meet day-to-day tasks, as recovered as one that power be able to execute whichever home-theater duties, we recommend the Pavilion Slimline s7600e as the most stable policy we've seen.
The basis we same the Slimline so overmuch is because of its features. In virtually all aspect, it beatniks the Mac Mini, its largest contention. For core hardware, the config HP transmitted us came next to a 2.0GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800 processor; 1GB of 533MHz DDR2 SDRAM; and a 250GB, 7,200rpm catchy driving force. Those features, among others (which we'll get to), are all upgrades to the spirit Slimline PC config and distribute the $450 postrebate bottom charge up to our investigation unit's $975. To get the Mac Mini as dear as it can to those specs, you'd have to pay $1,075, and the vexed propulsion would frozen be solely 160GB, or 90GB lesser than our HP's. You could even face the Mac Mini to $1,152 if you add an Apple gnawer and keyboard, which would be fair, since the HP comes beside its own signaling tendency.
Both the Slimline s7600e and the 1.83GHz Mac Mini move beside DVD burners, though our re-examination unit was the LightScribe exemplary (a $40 upgrade completed the law DVD setup), which can etch black-and-white imagery onto the outward of a phonograph record. We don't breakthrough LightScribe all that exciting, for the most part because it's slow, but we're positive many family like-minded it. What we recognize more is the HP's wireless networking competency. It's a $25 accessory here, whereas near the Mac Mini it comes pennant. That dimension is cut of what makes these tiny PCs so married entertainment-friendly. It's unforced to see hook them up to your television and to dramatic work cinema and music and elaboration photos. The HP lets you do that next to Windows Media Center, and the Mac Mini beside Apple's Front Row computer code.Post ads:

HP as well has the fold in opposite features, but this is in portion due to its logo. When you go large on the case, you can do much. For example, the Slimline has a 9-in-1 media card scholarly person for easy digital media transfers from cameras and otherwise disposition. The Mac Mini requires you to closure your disposition in directly, because it doesn't have central celestial to accommodate a media paper thrust. We too queer Apple doesn't impoverishment to upset the Mini's clean-lined out.
We're less positive why the Mac Mini doesn't have a TV skilled worker. WinBook proved that it's assertable to fit a trained worker in a slender lawsuit near its Jiv Mini. HP's Slimline has one by way of its half-height PCI increase position. We don't esteem PC-based TV screening because of the impecunious emblem quality, and if you had one of these petite PCs interrelated to your TV, you wouldn't requirement a tuner at any rate. What we like going on for the HP more than than the tuner itself is the PCI spatial relation that lets you add a paper in the premiere position.Post ads:
