Summary: **Avoid this computer at all cost** if you want peace of mind and a good night's sleep ! This computer is way more problematic than Vista it's a piece of junk. It came with windows 7, 8GB of ROM, an Intel processor etc, however that is not the problem. Nobody knows what the problem is especially HP customer service which recomends performing a bunch of test that always come back clean.
Summary: I purchased this HPE-140f after a lot of research and it seemed a great choice. For the first 3 hours this pc shined and I loved using it; however, the next 6 hours proved to be another story. Skip to the end, I had to return this pc due to a bad graphics card and I am awaiting its replacement. I really loved many of the features and price point so I requested an exchange and hopefully, my next pc will not be a lemon and I can update this review to a positive one.
Summary: Bought it in February. Was great until it stopped working - keyboard will not work regardless of usb drive. No keyboard will work. HP was very helpful on the phone but in the end could not figure it out. Have a feeling its just poorly manufactured. Have purchased HP for years but this one was a big mistake - though like I said - it worked fine and did what it claimed it could do up until it stopped completely.
Summary: I've had my HPE 140F for 5 weeks now and am totally pleased. I bought it especially for the multimedia and entertainment capabilities, and it has performed flawlessly in every way. I also play casual games with it, along with Sims 3. Again, totally flawless. This is my seventh PC since 1988, not counting multiple upgrades, etc. in between. I use this machine every single day, and most of the day at that.
Summary: I've been a fan of HP products for a very long time, but this particular model is the icing on the cake. The processing speed is simply awesome and very enjoyable. I work with Video streams, internet TV and other forms of photography, and this unit runs flawlessly, all wireless I might add. Any program that I have installed on this unit was accepted like an astronaut getting a chance to fly to the moon.
Summary: I could not be happier with this system. I have the HP 2159m monitor and the HP 8500 wireless printer hooked up to the system. Have not had one problem or complaint about anything. Works as advertised with many high end programs I run. Why spend more????
Summary: Read all the reviews for the 140f, reviewed the processor as well. All I can say is the machine exceeded even the positive comments of the other reviewers and computer magazines. I've used PC's since Dell was called PC Limited over 20 years ago. Except for a few machines running DOS, pre-windows PCs, this is an amazing fast machine. This is probably my 10th machine. I've owned Dell, HP, Compaq, when they were Compaq, Toshiba, even a Packard Bell.
