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.
