Tool-less maintenance, PCI/PCI-Express expansion card slots, low power consumption

No media card reader, no reset button, single-core CPU, not very powerful

Offices will find the Compaq dc5850's small form factor and low power consumption appealing, and it has a decent price tag for a business PC. In addition, its case makes maintenance easy.

Expert Review


The dc5850 makes a competent workstation or Internet surfboard, but it's expensive for what it offers compared with competing systems.

Small form factor, Expandable inside, out

Somewhat expensive, Limited 3D, gaming capabilities, May not work properly with larger monitors
