2017 Flagship HP 20-C HD+ AIO Business Desktop
Snow white HP 20-C is a hot new release 2017 model entry level All-in-One desktop computer with a modern design, 19.5 inch HD+ screen, a DVD Drive and good connectivity, a modern low mid-range Pentium processor for efficient day-to-day tasks at an entry level price considering it includes a large display and a wired USB keyboard and mouse combo. So you have the modern quad-core Intel Pentium J3710 processor (2MB Cache) at 1.64 GHz speed that is taken up to 2.64GHz with turbo boost when more demanding tasks require it and no hyper-threading as it already includes four cores for four threads in parallel, 4GB DDR3L SDRAM that will let you run a few browsers and apps at the same time without any problems, 500GB Serial ATA hard drive at 7200rpm rotating speed and Windows 10 Home 64-bit OS that is a standard in almost all current desktops and laptops.
19.5 inch WLED-backlit HD+ resolution display has the 1600 x 900 pixel resolution and although it is not as clear and sharp as a Full HD display, the image quality is acceptable at the low price level and anything below HD+ wouldn’t be so great and the panel is not IPS but TN as IPS panels add to the cost and offers OK viewing angles, so you’ll be looking straight from the front rather than the sides for the best picture quality. Snow white HP 20-C AIO desktop is easy on the eyes, weighs 10.56 lbs and measures 18.4 x 7.2 x 14.5 inches, so it is fairly lightweight, compact and portable and can be carried within your house easily as this is still a desktop and not a laptop. For connectivity you have the Ultra Slim SuperMulti Optical DVD Drive, 802.11bgn wireless (not the faster 802.11ac variety), Bluetooth 4.0, Ethernet with RJ-45 connector, a 3-in-1 Media Card Reader, an HDMI output, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, 2 x USB 2.0 ports, a Headphone and Microphone combo and a good quality HP high definition webcam on the top bezel for live Skype chats or taking still shots.
This is a budget-friendly computer for both home/family and work use and will handle daily tasks like web surfing, word processing, working with spreadsheets, video streaming and similar stuff comfortably with a modern Pentium processor with a Passmark benchmark score of 2047 as of now, that is better than Atom and Celeron processors. 4GB memory should be fine for a lot of people that buy this machine for simple tasks and if they’ll be dealing with more multitasking and of more demanding and complex stuff than they can upgrade it to 8GB. In the box you will get the HP AIO computer, USB white wired keyboard with volume control and mouse and a Quick Start Guide. You will get a 30-day free trial of Microsoft Office and you can purchase it at the end of the trial if you’ll need to use Office programs. It has a decent quality keyboard and mouse combo, is easy to set up, does the job well for daily tasks, has good connectivity options including a DVD Drive, a 7200rpm speed hard drive which is better than the standard 5400rpm, comes clean of junkware, has a beautiful design and offers great value overall.
