HP launch Pavilion Slimline s5100 desktop PC

HP today announced the release of the HP Pavilion Slimline s5100 PC, a slimmed down tower desktop.

Reduced to a mere 11 litres in sizes, the tower will look positively diminutive in the presence of its more common 25 litre brethren.

“The HP Pavilion Slimline s5100 PC is a great full-function performance PC that will appeal to young-minded, style-conscious consumers”, says Charl Snyman, vice president, Personal Systems Group, HP Europe, Middle East and Africa (his title is 10 words long! Compensating for something their Charl?).

Running Windows Vista Home Premium or Ultimate, the Slimline comes complete with built in 801.11 n WiFi and Bluetooth, as you’d expect, and an optional wireless keyboard and mouse. The Intel CoreTM 2 Quad and PhenomII X4 processor supporting Slimline is certainly a handsome brute, but it isn’t the TouchSmart is it?

It’s not a svelte all-in-one, although you could probably hide the tower behind the screen and pretend it was, that’s what I’d do.

It’ll be available from late July from around £339
