Summary: THIS COMPUTER IS TOO SLOW. I had a Compaq that I bought in 2011 that was faster than this computer, which I purchased in 2014. This computer is so slow. I got the top of the line model - the memory is awful, the processes are always maxed out and it can't run programs without struggling.
Summary: Did not have an HDMI port for my Dell monitor. This tower would only power 1/2 the screen with the other types of monitor cables. Spent 8 hours with Dell and HP trying to figure out the problem. They should have put this in the product description.

Summary: Terrible computer. The 500 series models do NOT allow booting from a cd or usb drives so if you have to boot to a cd or usb for any reason you are out of luck. HP has these computers setup in a way where they will never boot to a cd either through windows 8 boot options or their bios.
Summary: This computer is terribly slow. It intermittently freezes and gets stuck for seconds at a time when at rest in the home page with no background systems running. And it only gets worse once upon playing music and writing a document in Microsoft Word.
Summary: After a few days the computer started to give an error message. It has stopped working now and will not even reboot. Being an international customer it's difficult and costly to return and the return period has passed. I would not recommend this computer to anyone.
