Conclusion: Since the HP doesn't come with a monitor, the company sent along its HP L2045w flat-panel display ($279). This 20.1-inch widescreen LCD is ideal for pairing with Vista, as the extra width makes room for the handy sidebar gadgets or lets you see a document window and your e-mail pane side by side). The 1,680 by 1,050 resolution is a good fit for the panel size, and we had no complaints about the screen's crisp text and rich colors.
Excerpt: Need a really basic Vista Business machine as an emergency fill-in for your small-office network? The DX2300 can serve as your spare tire. If you need a PC for anything else, however, keep looking.
