HP Pavilion Slimline S3330f Video
From CES 2008, Natali Del Conte takes a first look at the HP Slimline S3330F, a tiny desktop that comes with a drive that plays both HD DVDs and Blu-ray discs.
From fast performance, to a Blu-ray drive, to plentiful other features, HP's Pavilion Slimline includes almost everything we'd ask for in our ideal living room slim tower PC. It will seem expensive if you're more inclined to a Nettop or a set-top box, but for committed PC media enthusiasts, this HP offers the complete package.
If you're looking for a general-purpose desktop or a small, affordable PC to send media files to your TV, the HP Pavilion Slimline s7600e should be your pick.

Best Buy listened to its customers and then teamed up with HP to create the Pavilion dv3510nr, one of the big box store's first Blue Label laptops. This sleek-yet-loaded 13-inch laptop deserves a blue ribbon, too, for its all-around excellence and value.
The Marantz NR1601 features a stylish, slimline design and excellent sound quality, although other AV receivers offer more features for less money.
