HP Compaq 6000 Pro All-in-one Business PC Teardown
I've always been a fan of the all-in-one PC design. It packs the power of a desktop into a device the size of thick LCD. And while they may not have enough muscle for hardcore gaming, they can calculate your spreadsheet formulas and process or documents with ease.
Unfortunately, most of the all-in-one computers that I've seen are extremely difficult, or nearly impossible, to upgrade or service, and many have a tendency to overheat. But while attending CES 2011, I found an all-in-one that stands out as an enterprise-class machine--the HP Compaq 6000 Pro All-in-one Business PC. Follow along as I crack open this enterprise-class all-in-one machine.
