Given its relatively poor performance next to other budget PCs, we'd hoped the HP would save more power. Its power efficiency isn't terrible, and it's in Energy Star-certified territory, so we can't be too disappointed. Still, we'd rather get something in exchange for the HP's lack of speed.

HP backs the Pavilion Slimline s5120y with a one-year warranty that covers parts and labor, alongside 24-7 toll-free phone support. The system itself comes with self-help software for troubleshooting and system maintenance and you'll find the usual assortment of drivers, support chat, and other resources on HP's Web site.
