The Omni 220 demonstrates admirably restrained power consumption for its configuration, using the same amount of electricity as the slower Dell Inspiron One 2320 and less power than the even-slower iMac and Samsung systems. The overall costs and power draw of these systems are modest, generally speaking, but I always appreciate a system that overachieves like this HP.

HP includes a basic one-year parts and labor warranty with the Omni 220. 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
The HP Omni 220 provides a fast, no-frills computing experience for a fair price. I might like to see at least one frill, but in all I can recommend this desktop to anyone interested in a lean and mean mainstream all-in-one.
