Conclusion: Not a performance machine, the Pavilion is meant to be a beautiful bargain, and by that measure it succeeds. Spend more on your main computer, the one you'll use for business-critical tasks. But for a family-room shared computer, what you want is a big screen and a small price tag. For that, this Pavilion delivers.
Pros: Bright 23-inch screen, Attractive design, Low price for a large-screen all-in-one system
Cons: No touch screen for Windows 8, No media extras such as Blu-ray support or TV tuner, Cheap keyboard and mouse, Sluggish performance in benchmark tests
