People can say what they want about the PC vs. console debate, there’s absolutely no question that the desktop computer can pack more guns, with bigger ammo. Same is true for the desktop vs. laptop debate. Not that the HP Pavilion Elite h8z Phenom II X6 is such a monster, but when you’re used to writing about quad-core deals all week, it’s nice to come across a sub-$1k machine with specs like these: a Phenom II X6 1065T 2.9GHz six-core processor coupled with 6GB of RAM, a 1.5 TB hdd, a Bluray player and TV tuner card for $699. That’s after a $300 rebate and includes a 35% off coupon on a 21.5 inch LCD. Of course, this is all shipped.
