HP dx2300 Workstation

HP today attacked the desktop side of the pro market by launching the dx2300 workstation. The small, matte black microtower is designed to be as flexible as possible and can be custom-ordered for the most essentialist purposes or as a moderate performance system for processing-intensive work. Buyers can opt for as little as a Celeron D or as much as a Core 2 Duo; HP also accommodates the open-source movement by shipping a version with FreeDOS to facilitate installing Linux. Integrated Intel graphics are the norm but can be expanded through a PCI Express x16 slot.

Although officially priced starting at $499, the dx2300 can be ordered today for as little as $378 with a 2.66GHz Celeron D, 256MB of RAM, and FreeDOS. A version with a 2.13GHz Core 2 Duo, 512MB of RAM, and Windows Vista Business costs $835.
