    Gateway SX2840-01 and the HP Pavilion Slimline s5310y

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    If you're in the market for a budget desktop, you might want to consider the Gateway SX2840-01 and the HP Pavilion Slimline s5310y. Both deliver decent performance and, in the case of Gateway, surprising versatility; unfortunately, they also come with a few disappointments. Let's take a closer look.

    Gateway SX2840-01 desktop

    The Gateway SX2840-01 is a budget desktop that packs a lot of punch into a small package. It comes with plenty of performance and can be upgraded as well. The SX2840-01 is available for around $560 and comes with a one-year warranty on parts and labor as well as technical support from the company's website and via their 24-7 toll-free line.

    The SX2840-01's fixed configuration comes with a powerful 2.93 GHz Intel Core i3-530 processor. The i3-530 is a virtual quad-core chip. It's considered a virtual quad-core because it has the ability to emulate two extra cores if necessary when more applications are running at the same time.

    The inclusion of the i3-530 CPU gives the SX2840-01 excellent performance, especially when you consider that it is a budget desktop. Common tasks like Internet browsing, instant messaging, and such, as well as more intense tasks like multimedia editing, can be accomplished with relative ease.

    The SX2840-01 also comes with a healthy 6 GB of DDR3 SDRAM to aid with multitasking. A huge 1 TB hard drive is on board to provide what should be more than ample storage space for most people. Graphics are supported by an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 chip. Finally, you get Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit installed as the operating system.
