HP slips out new all-in-one Compaq PC

By on
HP has pushed out a new Compaq-branded all-in-one desktop computer, the Presario CQ1-1020. Equipped with Intel's lightweight Atom D410, there's no denying that the 18.5-inch system is intended for very basic use (read: Web browsing).

The CQ1-120 also houses a gig of DDR2 RAM (4GB max), a 160GB 7200RPM hard drive, and a DVD burner. Connectivity includes Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n wireless, a six-in-one memory card reader, eight USB 2.0 ports, and audio jacks. Oddly, the machine comes with Windows XP Home Edition SP3 preinstalled, rather than Windows 7 or even Windows 7 Starter.

The CQ1-1020 is shipping to grandmas everywhere -- so many in fact, that the system is currently out of stock. HP backs the machine with a one-year warranty and it's priced at $429.99 with few if any configuration options available.
