"Lest you think the desktop is an endangered species, HP, at least, begs to differ. The company just unveiled three of 'em: the Pavilion p7, Slimline s5, and the Pavilion HPE h8 -- all festooned with black finishes, rounded edges, sliding port covers, and metallic panels designed to blend in with the electronics already populating your living room."
Desktops are so boring. They might offer better value and more upgradability than laptops, but desktops just are not as sexy. I still think of desktops as the workhorses of consumer computing. While that is being displaced with cloud computing, and the role of desktops have diminished, they still serve a useful purpose. Especially for anyone who has had to process video, or do work that is best done with three monitors or more. It is good to see that companies like HP have not forgotten us. I am still proud to say that I have and constantly use a desktop in my home. What about you?
