HP Releases Desktop PC for SMBs

In the tablet and smart phone era, the old-school desktop lives. HP came out with a new one this week, the HP Pro 3130. At $569 and loaded with features and storage, it's a solid option for smaller companies looking to upgrade from decade-old machines.

It's content creation that keeps desktops alive and kicking in a world of tiny, content-consumption devices, says Kirk Godkin, manager, Americas Business PCs, at HP. 

"The way desktops remain relevant is you need devices for content creation," Godkin told RCPU in a phone chat recently. "What we will continue to see is that the client in those infrastructures will continue to be a desktop. When we compare this 3130 to a five-year-old PC, it's going to generate 350 percent faster than your old PC. If you're running XP, you're running a PC that's eight years old. Eight years ago, we were walking around with pagers."
