Review

HP Pavilion p6720f

Amid competition from slim-tower PCs and all-in-ones, the tried-and-true midtower PC might seem like a dated platform. Still, we can't help but have some appreciation for HP's Pavilion p6720f. This $599 desktop has few feature highlights, but it's a capable budget PC with an expandable base for a reasonable price.

HP's Pavilion midtower design should feel familiar if you've gone PC shopping in the last few years. Its glossy black, gray-trimmed exterior conforms to apparent industry aesthetic standards, and although its outside is plastered with stickers, we're more willing to forgive a midtower for that design offense. Unlike smaller slim-tower PCs, a standard midtower desktop isn't that likely to wind up in your living room hardware stack.
