Tech Industry: HP Slimline S3330F

1:16 /

From CES 2008, Natali Del Conte takes a first look at the HP Slimline S3330F, a tiny desktop that comes with a drive that plays both HD DVDs and Blu-ray discs.

[ music ] ^M00:00:03 [ background music ] >> Hi, I'm Natalie Del Conte with CNET TV, here on the floor at CES 2008, with a first look at the AP Slimline S3330S [assumed spelling] PC. Now the beauty of this PC is not just that it's tiny, and it is tiny, it's a third of the size of a regular desktop tower, but also that it's got an HD DVD, and Blueray player right inside. So if you open it up here, you can put either format player in this machine. So you don't have to decide the format war just yet, you can just buy one of these so you're good to go. Now normally these days the dual format players are around eight hundred dollars. This comes in at a thousand dollars, and plays both formats. So in addition to a player, you also get a pretty heavy duty PC as well. It runs a range of dual core processors, has a five hundred gigabyte hard drive, and two gigs of RAM. It also here has a pocket drive, so if you want to add some more storage, that's good too. It also has all the normal SD card readers at the top. It's also made to turn on its side in case you want to put it in your home theater. [ background music ] It'll sit there right with your flat screen TV. So again, this is a look at the HD Slimline, and I'm Natalie Del Conte with a first look at CES with CNET TV. ^M00:01:12 [ music ]
