There’s no shortage of small desktop computers at CES 2015. One of my personal favorites is the Acer Revo One, but HP may be giving it a run for its money with a couple of their own compact desktops – the HP Stream Mini and HP Pavilion Mini.
These little computers are actually pretty awesome. They are portable and very good-looking. Not to mention, they are also a very well-built machine that feel great in the hand. Their compact sizes also make them a perfect HTPC (Home Theater PC) for the living room.
HP Stream Mini
The HP Stream Mini’s specs include an Intel Celeron processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 4 USB 3.0 ports, bluetooth, WiFi and more. This is meant to be an affordable device for streaming and entertainment, so the specs are not breath-taking, but you can open up the device and make some upgrades.

HP Pavilion Mini
Now let’s take a look at the bigger brother. Well, it’s not really bigger, but it is definitely more powerful. This one comes with an Intel Pentium processor (supports up to Core i3), 4 GB of RAM and a 500 GB hard drive.
RAM can be upgraded up to 8 GB and internal storage can reach 1 TB. That could really become a very convenient machine, even for those who want to do more serious computing with it. Maybe you can even use it for some gaming!
Prices start at $329.99, and just like the HP Stream Mini, it launches on January 14th.
