What's a practical business desktop PC? One that offers essential features and functions at more affordable prices. Easy-to-use technology for out-of-the-box productivity. Proven reliability you can count on. And a range of options to fit your specific business needs.

That's just how we describe the HP Compaq dx2000 Business Desktop PC Series. We designed the series to meet the basic computing needs of a small office — like word processing, spreadsheets, Internet browsing and email.

There are two different models within the series to choose from. The new HP Compaq dx2300 Business Desktop PC offers the latest Intel Core 2 Duo(1) technology. The HP Compaq dx2250 Business Desktop PC, announced last fall, offers the latest from AMD, including AMD's Cool n' Quiet technology.

No matter which you choose, each is backed by legendary HP quality and support designed specifically for small business. So, you can have the practical computing you need and the peace of mind you deserve.

The HP Compaq dx2000 Business Desktop PC Series offers a range of flexible price points that can be ideal for small businesses and their tight budgets. For example, you can buy the dx2250 Business Desktop PC with AMD's Cool n' Quiet technology directly from HP online starting at just $359.00.(2) (Reseller prices may vary.)

When you choose the dx2000 Business Desktop PC Series, you not only get affordable business-class PCs, you get PCs that bear the HP name — a trusted name in PC computing. That means you can be confident that they've been built with industry-standard components designed to withstand the rigors of everyday business computing.

It also means they've been tested and qualified to deliver the reliable performance and long-term dependability that can help reduce maintenance costs over the long-haul.

Easy to get started and be productive

The dx2000 Business Desktop PC Series is designed to get you up and running quickly. A microtower design fits easily into most work spaces. You can also order business applications pre-installed, which makes it easier and faster to unpack your PCs and get to work.

There's no more need to climb under your desk to transfer files, thanks to front access USB 2.0 ports. Audio ports for headphones and such are conveniently located at the front and back for greater flexibility.

This PC series is also easy to upgrade with a large and varied range of certified and off-the-shelf PC components. For example, all PCs in this series feature integrated graphics to meet most business requirements. For more graphic-intensive applications or an enhanced multi-media experience, they also support graphics upgrades.

Easy to reflect your business

PCs within the dx2000 Business Desktop Series come in a wide selection of pre-configured options. Or you can configure them yourself to suit your business. In addition to choosing from the most popular chip technology, you can choose from the latest operating systems from Microsoft, including Windows XP or Windows Vista.(3)

It's easy to create the computing experience that's right for your business with a wide range of HP accessories, displays and services.
