HP Compaq dc5750 business PC

 

The HP Compaq dc5750 is a good choice if you want a business PC that won't grow legs. The HP Compaq dc5750 comes in either a microtower configuration or the desktop orientation that we tested. HP calls the latter model a "small form factor" system....

A good solid business PC from HP - the HP Compaq dc5750 is a good choice if you want an office workhorse.

Compaq Compaq dc5750 Desktop (2.00GHz Athlon 64 X2 3800+, 1GB DDR2, 80GB, DVD/CDRW, Windows Vista Business)

 

The HP Compaq dc5750 comes in either a microtower configuration or the desktop orientation that we tested. HP calls the latter model a "small form factor" system, but it's nearly identical in size to Dell's desktop case. It's moderately attractive,...

Space-saving desktop case ; Some well-designed toolless components

Cramped, somewhat messy interior ; Bare-bones keyboard and mouse

This PC's desktop orientation saves space but limits expandability. It also comes in a minitower version.

Space-saving desktop case, Some well-designed toolless components

Cramped, somewhat messy interior, Bare-bones keyboard and mouse

It doesn't have the most cutting-edge design among business systems, but the case options and security features will make it a good choice for some offices.

HP Compaq dc5750 Review

 

You don't have to be a liberal tree-hugger to appreciate a computer that runs cooler and uses less energy; you just have to pay your electric bill. HP says that replacing an older PC with one that meets the Environmental Protection Agency's new Energy...

This isn't the flashiest HardwareCentral review of the year, because the HP Compaq dc5750 isn't the flashiest or most glamorous desktop on the market. But it's a straight-arrow, solid performer that's likely to change a few CTOs' purchasing prejudices:...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great system for the price

 

Have 2 of these at our local food pantry and they do a great job with Ubuntu, since the program we run is web based and runs great on Firefox.

Runs Ubuntu

Win 7 takes about 2 days to update. Loaded Ubuntu in 3 hrs.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

not a good buy

 

I do not think I will ever buy another used computer from this Newegg seller. As a small and medum size commercial network installer, this could be a rather large loss for Joy Systems.

well cleaned used computers - but that is about it.

Not my idea of "refurbished". One computer had a dead CMOS battery, and I had to replace it right off the bat. The included key code for Win7 did not work. I had to call Microsoft and enter the much longer product code to get Win7 activated. A long and...

Awesome Computer for the price

If you need something to basic stuff this is perfect

Cost effective backup system.

 

Great Price. Quick delivery. Would give it 5 stars if power switch worked properly.

Lots of storage and decent speed.

On Off switch is flaky. No WiFi.

Good basic computer

 

A great second computer.

Price, Window7, fast and fair shipping

This is a 10 year old computer.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

It works as advertised, but is older technology.

 

My mother needed a replacement computer for her media center machine. Her Intel-based HP computer had a motherboard failure and replacement was going to cost well over $100 just for parts. this was an economical way to get her media center going again...

Excellent price for a warrantied machine Windows 7 64 bit with a COA sticker and built in recovery image (but no physical disks) PCI-express 1x and a 16x (8x max capability?) slots if better graphics hardware is required. Nearly tool-free case design....

BTX design is no longer being developed. This is circa 2007. Integrated video is older tech and lacks today's hardware acceleration and decoding capabilities. It is fine for office work and compatible with windows vista/7 and perhaps higher. BIOS is...
