We wouldn't normally get excited about two more random HP enterprise desktops, but you know how we love all things SSD, and if the HP Compaq dc7800 Ultra-Slim Desktop with SSD lights a fire in corporate IT departments, sales volumes may actually drive the price of SSD units down. So, uh, wow, check out this hot new HP Compaq dc7800 Ultra-Slim Desktop! Man, can you imagine how worker productivity would increase due to its speedy 2.3GHz Core 2 Duo processor? And how many more charts and folders you could fit on a desk thanks to its 46 percent smaller footprint? And let's not even talk about the energy savings due to its compliance with the latest Energy Star guidelines -- just TOO exciting. Truly the progressive, "with-it" large enterprise can't afford NOT to purchase the $1,258 HP Compaq dc7800 Ultra-Slim Desktop with SSD in large enough volumes to affect the commodity pricing of SSD storage. No sir!
There is also a $579 HP Compaq dc5800 Business PC that has a regular hard drive, pictured after the break. It's pretty much the same, but instead of productivity apps, it, uh, only runs MySpace. Yeah, that's what we heard for real.
