Following the full disclosure of its upcoming tablet PC, HP has introduced three new desktop models, the Slimline s5305z and s5350z, along with the Pavilion Elite HPE-190t. As their names denote, the Slimline models are small form factor systems, while the Pavilion Elite is a full-sized high-performance desktop. All of the machines are available now, and ship with Windows 7.

Starting at $300, the s5305z comes equipped with your choice of AMD Sempron or Athlon II processors, 2GB, 3GB or 4GB of DDR3 1066MHz RAM, 320GB to 750GB of storage, and it offers a range of graphics options, such as a GeForce 6150, G210, GT 220, and a Radeon HD 4350, or 5450. The system also has an optional Blu-ray player/writer, optional Wi-Fi support, a 6-in-1 card reader, optional TV tuner, and 5.1 channel audio.


The s5350z is priced at $480 and upgrades those specs to an Althlon X4 or Phenom X4, 3GB to 8GB of RAM, and up to 1.5TB of storage. Meanwhile, the HPE-190t kicks off at $1,900 and is decked out with a Core i7-980X six-core Extreme Edition CPU, 9GB to 24GB of RAM, a 1GB Radeon HD 4850, 5570, or GeForce GT 220, as many as two 1.5TB HDDs, a 15-in-1 card reader, and most, if not more optional trinkets than the Slimeline systems offer.
