With the HP's fast performance comes predictably elevated power consumption for its class. It's certainly not as bad as that of the AMD CPU-based Dell Inspiron One, and on balance, paying $19.16 a year to operate this PC is tolerable.

HP includes a standard one-year parts and labor warranty with the Pavilion p6720f. You also get 24-7 toll-free phone support and a variety of support resources available on HP's Web site, as well as on the system itself.

Conclusion
Touch screens may be all the rage these days, but HP's Omni 200 shows that if you're willing to forgo what's arguably a novelty interface design, you can come away with an impressively fast computer. We wish it had a bit more connectivity to truly shine as a home entertainment device, as well as perhaps a larger screen, but overall the Omni 200 5380qd will serve the day-to-day computing needs of any mainstream user.
