HP Pavilion Elite m9600t Review

13 May 2009
  • Conclusion: You’ll encounter plenty of Core i7 computers from boutique manufacturers such as Alienware, CyberPower and others that are sexier and more powerful than HP’s Pavilion Elite m9600t.

Review: HP Pavilion Elite m9600t

25 April 2009
  • Conclusion: So overall I am happy with the HP Pavilion Elite m9600t. There are some things HP needs to improve on, but the system is solid, the performance is great, and the price is good.

Expert Review

2 April 2009

  • Pros: Major expandability and connectivity options, 64-bit Vista, Core i7 processor
  • Cons: Hard drive is "only" 750GB, Poor cable routing
