In Pictures: Modern PCs that run the Windows you really want

Here are 12 good laptops and desktops that will run Windows 7 for a very long time

9. HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Desktop PCs have been fading for years in favor of laptops and all-in-ones, but using a desktop does let you use any monitor you want. Traditional desktops take a lot of room on or under a desk, but there's a solution to that challenge: an ultraslim PC like HP's EliteDesk 800, which takes almost no space yet offers the computing power you need.

The EliteDesk 800 uses a 3.2GHz Core i5 processor, has 4GB of RAM (expandable to 16GB), a rewritable DVD drive, and a 500GB hard drive in its 10-inch-by-10-inch footprint and 2.6-inch height. Its ports are generous: one Ethernet, four USB 3, six USB 2, two PS/2, one VGA, and two DisplayPort.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
