HP has released HP Pro 3400 Series desktops today. They are aimed for business users and HP markets them as microtowers (seems to be mid-tower Micro-ATXs).

There aren't any real surprises in the specs. These are regular budget-level business PCs which are ideal for office use for example. Built-to-order options allow some beefier hardware, such as i7-2600 and AMD 6570. Still, these are meant for business and hence the stock configurations come with fairly low specs. For more intensive use, HP offers workstations like the Z200 series.

    USB3 and/or eSATA ports would be nice. Also, what's the purpose of a shiny case? Reply

    ugh. So much for the convention that blue ports are USB3. I followed through the press release to the actual specs and they're only USB2. :( Reply

    I despise glossy cases, why are they bringing this horrible design decision to the business sector? Oh well. Reply

    Why should the joy of greasy fingerprint smears be limited to the home?

    They're also probably afraid that if lusers realize not-disgusting finishes are available at work they'll stop buying the smearfests already in retail channels for home use.
