Advantages Great price, features, performance, looks, styling
Disadvantages Im yet to find one!
Shiny and full of beans is my affectionate way to refer to our latest desktop recruits here in the office. No, not the staff but the PCs they work on.
And they don't come much fuller than the DC7700 by HP Compaq.
Let have a look at the product.The Case has a shiny silver front giving it a cutting edge look while is Black case with removable side panels make maintenance, upgrades and repairs easy with full access to the internals of the machine. Accessed from the front is the essential CD/DVD recorder, 2 USB sockets for attaching various devices such as cameras, keyboards and mice as well as a microphone and headphone socket. Whoever invented front accessible sockets like this needs a firm shake of the hand! long gone are the days of reaching around the back, groping in the dark, hoping to connect with a free socket!
Popping the case open, I can tell you a bit about the insides.
There is a fat juicy 2.4Ghz Pentium Core 2 Duo processor that is the real brains of this PC. Designed for the next generation in software, it can easily cope with todays cutting edge applications and operating systems. XP is a doddle on this with no performance inpact. Even Vista works stupendously well on it.
All that power is gonna generate some heat and boy, do they have a cooling fan to keep it cool! Its huge! Ive never seen a cooling fan as big as that before!
Memory is set at 1gb from the manufacturer and its is installed in 2 of the 4 Memory slots. Therefore there are 2 more slots available should you feel 1gb is not enough!
A suprise when we first turned one of these PCs on was it has a built in speaker that is capable of playing music compared to the standard BEEP BEEP BEEP you expect on motherboards.
