HP shines up its Pavilion desktops

New HP Pavilion desktops top our list

If you head on over to our list of desktop reviews, you'll see four new HP desktops at the top. We reviewed a new SlimLine (which received an Editor's Choice nod), and we also have previews of twoother Pavilions, as well as a new bargain-basement Compaq.

Like all new Pavilions, HP's new SlimLine received a shiny black makeover. CNET

The models featured are all fixed-config in-store systems, and they all include dual-core CPUs, Windows Vista Home Premium , and LightScribe DVD burners. That's impressive, considering that two of the four come in at under $600, but we're also glad to see that HP revamped its systems' visual appeal, adding a glossy black front panel to the Pavilions and a sleeker overall look to the Compaq. We're working on updating those previews as soon as we can get the products in, so stay tuned for a full hands-on.
