HP Pavilion 570 Desktop

HP Recommended

This is a physical question rather than a technical one.

I am using a Pavilion Desktop 570  P054 with a Dell Monitor E196 PFP. Although the Pavilion 570 is described as a desktop,its appearance is really like a slimline tower. I have previously been using it like a tower arrangement with the heavy Dell monitor placed separately on a table.

To save space, I am thinking of placing my old Dell monitor on top of the" desktop" on its side with the DVD drive tray parallel to the table but I am concerned about the monitor weight of nearly 5kg resting on the  detachable side panel of the desktop. The hard drive will be immediately below the detachable panel on a rack. In order words I doubt whether the detachable panel will safely support a monitor weight of nearly 5kg

I have probably answered my own question but wonder what your views are? Many thanks

Hi:

 

If the monitor flexes/bows the removable side panel in any way, then it is too heavy to be placed on top of the PC.

 

You also have to make sure that you are not blocking any vents that may be located where you place the PC on its side, or cover any vents with your monitor.

 

Usually only business class desktop PC's are built rugged enough to support an 11 - 12 pound monitor.
