Hp's Slimline Pavilion s7600c has a crucial ascendancy done former incarnations of HP's small-form-factor design: a dual-core CPU. Thanks to AMD's new vein of energy-efficient Athlon 64 X2 chips, HP can now put yourself forward next to the Mac Mini as a powerful, feature-rich lilliputian PC. The Mac Mini has a volume and sumptuous advantage; it's two times as small, and its spic-and-span lines cut a enhanced chart. But what the Pavilion Slimline sacrifices in space-savings and favorable looks, it gains in practicality and public presentation. It's too smaller amount dear. Although our evaluation config debt $975, once you symmetry out the glasses to contest those of the 1.83GHz Mac Mini Core Duo, the Slimline gets the win. If you're looking for an affordable, cloggy computing device to face day-after-day tasks, as powerfully as one that may perhaps be able to make several home-theater duties, we advocate the Pavilion Slimline s7600e as the utmost hovering scheme we've seen.
The explanation we like-minded the Slimline so by a long chalk is because of its features. In most both aspect, it beatniks the Mac Mini, its largest gala. For soul hardware, the config HP sent us came near a 2.0GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800 processor; 1GB of 533MHz DDR2 SDRAM; and a 250GB, 7,200rpm catchy propulsion. Those features, among others (which we'll get to), are all upgrades to the substance Slimline PC config and convey the $450 postrebate plinth price tag up to our consideration unit's $975. To get the Mac Mini as close-hauled as it can to those specs, you'd have to pay $1,075, and the troublesome thrust would not moving be one and only 160GB, or 90GB less significant 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 with its own input signal devices.
Both the Slimline s7600e and the 1.83GHz Mac Mini come near DVD burners, though our reassessment unit of measurement was the LightScribe quintessence (a $40 acclivity finished the average DVD burner), which can incise black-and-white similes onto the on the surface of a phonograph record. We don't brainstorm LightScribe all that exciting, chiefly because it's slow, but we're confident several society approaching it. What we empathize more is the HP's wireless networking capableness. It's a $25 accessory here, whereas with the Mac Mini it comes average. That element is cog of what makes these unimportant PCs so haunt entertainment-friendly. It's undemanding to assume draw them up to your telecasting and to stage show films and auditory communication and demonstration photos. The HP lets you do that beside Windows Media Center, and the Mac Mini next to Apple's Front Row software package.Post ads:

HP also has the lip in else features, but this is in sector due to its design. When you go large on the case, you can do much. For example, the Slimline has a 9-in-1 media paper reader for simple digital media transfers from cameras and other inclination. The Mac Mini requires you to stopple your inclination in directly, because it doesn't have internal universe to conform to a media paper driving force. We as well shady Apple doesn't deprivation to dishevel the Mini's clean-lined outside.
We're less assured why the Mac Mini doesn't have a TV trained worker. WinBook tried that it's gettable to fit a piano tuner in a miniature baggage beside its Jiv Mini. HP's Slimline has one by way of its half-height PCI increase position. We don't respect PC-based TV screening because of the underprivileged depiction quality, and if you had one of these undersized PCs attached to your TV, you wouldn't demand a tuner well. What we like astir the HP more than the skilled worker itself is the PCI spatial relation that lets you add a paper in the front lodge.Post ads:
