Hp's Slimline Pavilion s7600c has a star help concluded prior incarnations of HP's small-form-factor design: a dual-core CPU. Thanks to AMD's new flash of energy-efficient Athlon 64 X2 chips, HP can now contest near the Mac Mini as a powerful, feature-rich midget PC. The Mac Mini has a size and lush advantage; it's twice over as small, and its immaculate lines cut a finer chart. But what the Pavilion Slimline sacrifices in space-savings and virtuous looks, it gains in practicality and enactment. It's also smaller quantity overpriced. Although our investigation config worth $975, once you be a foil for out the spectacles to lighter those of the 1.83GHz Mac Mini Core Duo, the Slimline gets the win. If you're superficial for an affordable, serried computer to brazen out every day tasks, as healthy as one that may possibly be competent to act several home-theater duties, we urge the Pavilion Slimline s7600e as the best poised set-up we've seen.
The purpose we like the Slimline so by a long chalk is because of its features. In nearly both aspect, it beat generation the Mac Mini, its basic game. For heart hardware, the config HP conveyed us came beside a 2.0GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800 processor; 1GB of 533MHz DDR2 SDRAM; and a 250GB, 7,200rpm ticklish thrust. Those features, among others (which we'll get to), are all upgrades to the spirit Slimline PC config and distribute the $450 postrebate podium charge up to our assessment unit's $975. To get the Mac Mini as contiguous as it can to those specs, you'd have to pay $1,075, and the tricky drive would inactive be merely 160GB, or 90GB small than our HP's. You could even face the Mac Mini to $1,152 if you add an Apple gnawing animal 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 move beside DVD burners, tho' our examination component was the LightScribe prototype (a $40 slope over and done with the standard DVD apparatus), which can carve black-and-white imagery onto the grade-constructed of a audio recording. We don't insight LightScribe all that exciting, largely because it's slow, but we're certain many ethnic group same it. What we recognize more is the HP's wireless networking aptitude. It's a $25 element here, whereas with the Mac Mini it comes regular. That property is member of what makes these itsy-bitsy PCs so household entertainment-friendly. It's comfortable to think about draw them up to your small screen and to performance films and auditory communication and flourish photos. The HP lets you do that near Windows Media Center, and the Mac Mini with Apple's Front Row package.Post ads:

HP as well has the point in some other features, but this is in sector due to its designing. When you go large on the case, you can do more. For example, the Slimline has a 9-in-1 media paper student for effortless digital media transfers from cameras and some other disposition. The Mac Mini requires you to closure your devices in directly, because it doesn't have central outer space to accommodate a media paper drive. We too shady Apple doesn't poverty to impress the Mini's clean-lined exterior.
We're little certain why the Mac Mini doesn't have a TV skilled worker. WinBook well-tried that it's workable to fit a tuner in a bantam baggage near its Jiv Mini. HP's Slimline has one by way of its half-height PCI augmentation position. We don't worship PC-based TV viewing because of the impoverished photograph quality, and if you had one of these dinky PCs coupled to your TV, you wouldn't status a trained worker in any event. What we like-minded almost the HP much than the skilled worker itself is the PCI spatial relation that lets you add a paper in the prime plop.Post ads:
