I need a new pc for work and I need it fast ....

I am looking at a HP all in one (link in 1st post) but I have never had an all-in-one, I don't really have room for a full desktop so this would be ideal solution for me...

1) Are they reliable? As it will be hard to fix any hardware issues etc
2) Are HP's reliable? I only ever owned one and it never had a problem (still going strong) but it's a few years old now.

I wanted something reliable that will last a long time, I have about £750 budget, the Imac is way outta my budget, but I love how they look.

Needs a dual core minimum, 3GB of ram, 500GB+ hdd (with room to expand the ram) and a large monitor.
I would go for a normal desktop but the case needs to be small,

Cheers guys

not it is anyway very similar, but had an acer, a tiny desktop, ran hot as an oven, and died just out of warranty, it also had an amd processor

I think I would rather separate the machine from the screen still, and shy away from anything too non standard.
by the time you put it on the floor by the desk, its not a big deal

Space is my issue here, but I also need reliability as I rely on my pc / laptop for my business... I know I won't be going dell, I was looking at the Vaio's but can't find any pc's for them :?

Money is no object to the right pc, so need to find the one that will do my needs.

The above is the issue that springs to mind for me, overheating due to the size of the space for the components...

Cheers for your reply

how about a 17inch laptop?, saves a lot more cables still, and folds up neater

I suggest intel processors lately, they run nice and cool ( not biased, i have an amd laptop, but it does run a little on the warm side, and an intel, and it runs cool as a cucumber)

if HP do an intel version of the machine you posted, they would probably be just fine (im sure HP is better than acer)


HP is more used to business than acer and I would also suggest paying for the next day on site warranty if you can sort it from HP, as a business PC, you dont want the 28 day mess of couriers and waiting ages (shame you dont like dell, but if you have been bitten, then you change)

you could get one of these http://www.ebuyer.com/product/172706 and have plenty of cash left for a really good monitor and spare external hard drives.

if its just for web browsing , word processing and playing movies these are all you need really. nice and compact too

Saw that and would love it but my needs will go way beyond that...

I do a lot of graphic design, so need a power hungry system

Cheers though :thumbsup:

I'd avoid an all in one personally
unless you plan on changing it on a yearly basis because if something goes wrong out of warranty the cost of the dedicated replacement part will make it uneconomic to repair

Well you could build a mini-itx system. Depending on how much power your after look at the following for system starters, HERE for a socket 775 with 9300m (ION) GPU or if more processing power is required the LGA1156 board below it. If your adding a high end graphics card to it I would get it built by a shop or an experienced builder as they need to understand the heat and power issues that you will get with a high end system in a mini-itx form.

Ya, the more I think about it, the less convinced I am by a all-in-one, i'm thinking mini-utx is the way for me to go/

Mini UTX would suit me, but I wouldn't wanna build myself due to the warranty and cos it's a business machine... I will take a look at the link in a sec
