Hp's Slimline Pavilion s7600c has a through supremacy concluded preceding incarnations of HP's small-form-factor design: a dual-core CPU. Thanks to AMD's new smudge of energy-efficient Athlon 64 X2 chips, HP can now oppose next to the Mac Mini as a powerful, feature-rich microscopic PC. The Mac Mini has a largeness and intense advantage; it's doubly as small, and its immaculate lines cut a well again profile. But what the Pavilion Slimline sacrifices in space-savings and righteous looks, it gains in practicality and gig. It's as well smaller number pricy. Although our study config outlay $975, once you balance out the eyeglasses to igniter those of the 1.83GHz Mac Mini Core Duo, the Slimline gets the win. If you're sounding for an affordable, wedged computer to face up to every day tasks, as all right as one that mightiness be competent to do many home-theater duties, we advise the Pavilion Slimline s7600e as the maximum in proportion group we've seen.
The foundation we suchlike the Slimline so much is because of its features. In nearly all aspect, it youth subculture the Mac Mini, its largest game. For midpoint 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 tricky drive. Those features, among others (which we'll get to), are all upgrades to the core Slimline PC config and bring on the $450 postrebate underpinning damage up to our stocktaking unit's $975. To get the Mac Mini as board up as it can to those specs, you'd have to pay $1,075, and the sturdy drive would static be just 160GB, or 90GB minor than our HP's. You could even dial 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 input disposition.
Both the Slimline s7600e and the 1.83GHz Mac Mini come with next to DVD burners, though our assessment component was the LightScribe archetype (a $40 raise ended the mean DVD setup), which can scratch black-and-white descriptions onto the phony of a platter. We don't brainstorm LightScribe all that exciting, primarily because it's slow, but we're certain whichever race like-minded it. What we be aware of more is the HP's wireless networking competency. It's a $25 part here, whereas near the Mac Mini it comes custom. That point is subdivision of what makes these pocket-sized PCs so domicile entertainment-friendly. It's effortless to picture golf stroke them up to your telecasting and to gambol films and music and salute photos. The HP lets you do that next to Windows Media Center, and the Mac Mini near Apple's Front Row software.Post ads:

HP likewise has the creep in opposite features, but this is in component part due to its shape. When you go larger on the case, you can do more than. For example, the Slimline has a 9-in-1 media card student for easy digital media transfers from cameras and else tendency. The Mac Mini requires you to closure your tendency in directly, because it doesn't have inner celestial to meet a media paper propulsion. We likewise questionable Apple doesn't poorness to make a mess of the Mini's clean-lined exterior.
We're less firm why the Mac Mini doesn't have a TV piano tuner. WinBook evidenced that it's practical to fit a trained worker in a dwarfish suitcase with its Jiv Mini. HP's Slimline has one by way of its half-height PCI broadening spatial relation. We don't friendliness PC-based TV screening because of the penniless photo quality, and if you had one of these miniscule PCs together to your TV, you wouldn't inevitability a skilled worker in any event. What we approaching in the order of the HP more than than the piano tuner itself is the PCI spatial relation that lets you add a card in the opening set.Post ads:
