HP Compaq 8100 Minitower Desktop PC
Great for small-business owners and at-home professionals, this minitower can pair with a large monitor (not included) for a comfortable and accommodating workspace.
Meets the Demands of Multitaskers
A quad-core processor like this minitower’s Intel Core i7 enables a computer to multitask more efficiently, suiting the needs of modern work styles. In addition, 8GB of DDR3 memory boosts performance and speed, so you can spend less time waiting for programs to launch and more time on productive things, like browsing cat GIFs.
Ample Storage Space
A spacious hard drive offers plenty of room for large computer programs, saved game files, and multimedia storage. A single terabyte (TB) can hold up to 17,000 hours of music—enough to play your library nonstop for almost two years without ever repeating a song—or 310,000 photographs, the equivalent of one photo every hour, every day, for more than 35 years.

When iconic company HP was born in 1939, it was not in a gleaming laboratory or during a late-night study session at a prestigious university. It was in a 12’x18’ garage that contained only a workbench and a used drill press. University friends Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard sold audio equipment to Disney (which used them during Fantasia production) and became HP soon after. Their humble garage is now marked with a plaque bearing the title “Birthplace of Silicon Valley.”
HP’s innovations laid the groundwork for the Valley’s surge in technological advances. Between the creation of the first handheld computer, which connected to printers and cassette drives, and development of speedier 64-bit processing technology currently used by brands like Apple and Microsoft, HP cemented itself as an architect of current tech trends like the tablet and smartphone. It’s a community-conscious company, too; HP has donated to charity since 1940 and offers free recycling for all electronics, regardless of brand, at Staples.
