HP Compaq 6200 Small Form Factor Desktop PCs (Refurbished)
Built with productivity in mind, these desktops provides plenty of computational power to whip up reports, compile spreadsheets, and stream media in between tasks. Their compact frames take up a modest amount of tabletop real estate, leaving plenty of space for notepads and photos of loved ones.
Whether you’re checking social media, checking your accounts, or typing up a long report, you’ll want to avoid irritating lag and slowdowns. It won’t be a problem for these PCs; the GP2-0027 comes with 4GB of RAM and a speedy 3.1GHz processor that splits tasks into two piles to attack simultaneous, and the GP2-0028 upgrades to a 3.1GHz quad-core processor that divides tasks in four simultaneously shredded piles.

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 it 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.
