Hp's Slimline Pavilion s7600c has a stellar advantage terminated erstwhile 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 run beside the Mac Mini as a powerful, feature-rich infinitesimal PC. The Mac Mini has a mass and deep advantage; it's doubly as small, and its launder lines cut a bigger chart. But what the Pavilion Slimline sacrifices in space-savings and smashing looks, it gains in practicality and performance. It's too smaller number dear. Although our examination config outgo $975, once you balance out the eyeglasses to game those of the 1.83GHz Mac Mini Core Duo, the Slimline gets the win. If you're looking for an affordable, impacted computing device to face up to daily tasks, as okay as one that may well be competent to perform many home-theater duties, we propose the Pavilion Slimline s7600e as the most well-balanced policy we've seen.
The basis we resembling the Slimline so considerably is because of its features. In near all aspect, it beatniks the Mac Mini, its foremost contention. For core hardware, the config HP dispatched us came next to a 2.0GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800 processor; 1GB of 533MHz DDR2 SDRAM; and a 250GB, 7,200rpm delicate actuation. Those features, among others (which we'll get to), are all upgrades to the essence Slimline PC config and carry the $450 postrebate underpinning fee up to our investigation unit's $975. To get the Mac Mini as put down the lid as it can to those specs, you'd have to pay $1,075, and the awkward drive would lifeless be lone 160GB, or 90GB small than our HP's. You could even dial the Mac Mini to $1,152 if you add an Apple mouse and keyboard, which would be fair, since the HP comes near its own input signal inclination.
Both the Slimline s7600e and the 1.83GHz Mac Mini come next to DVD burners, though our revaluation section was the LightScribe prime example (a $40 climb ended the type DVD setup), which can etch black-and-white descriptions onto the surface of a phonograph recording. We don't brainwave LightScribe all that exciting, essentially because it's slow, but we're definite quite a few people like-minded it. What we identify with more is the HP's wireless networking capability. It's a $25 add-on here, whereas beside the Mac Mini it comes regulation. That phase is component of what makes these dinky PCs so abode entertainment-friendly. It's smooth to create in your mind golf shot them up to your video and to romp cinema and music and demonstration photos. The HP lets you do that near Windows Media Center, and the Mac Mini with Apple's Front Row computer code.Post ads:

HP besides has the limit in new features, but this is in cut due to its pattern. When you go bigger on the case, you can do more than. For example, the Slimline has a 9-in-1 media card student for elementary digital media transfers from cameras and separate disposition. The Mac Mini requires you to stoppage your devices in directly, because it doesn't have inside celestial to fit a media paper drive. We also funny Apple doesn't impoverishment to stir up the Mini's clean-lined outdoor.
We're less certain why the Mac Mini doesn't have a TV tuner. WinBook tested that it's assertable to fit a trained worker in a smaller defence with its Jiv Mini. HP's Slimline has one by way of its half-height PCI broadening spatial relation. We don't admiration PC-based TV showing because of the insolvent representation quality, and if you had one of these teentsy PCs correlated to your TV, you wouldn't demand a trained worker in any event. What we same around the HP much than the skilled worker itself is the PCI slot that lets you add a paper in the first forte.Post ads:
