Summary: The reason I purchased this system from HP is to save myself from the trouble of putting together another build. It never occurred to me that the OS win 8.1 pro disk is not included, and only recovery files that can be copied into DVD disks are provided. If I only knew that the OS disk is not included which the website did not state, I would rather have invested in building one myself.
Summary: The computer that I replaced was 10 years old and was giving me all kinds of problems. The sales person asked me what I was going to use the computer for and said this one would be ideal for our use. I love it, so much of an improvement. Good job!
Summary: I have had this Box for a week and it seems to be a good, fast and efficient computer. Set-up on modern day Boxes is easy as just about everything is done for you except for answering a few questions. My only negative is that when the Box goes to sleep, an annoying (very) red LED band across the front of the Box flashes continuously as does the power on/off switch located directly up front on top of the cabinet.
