Summary: As a Senior, Senior citizen this will probably be my last computer and it appears to be all that I have ever wanted in a computer. I bought it last Christmas as a present for myself and I could not be happier with it. Sometimes it seems to retrieve something before I even ask it to.
Summary: I knew this model was nearing 2 years old when I bought it, but I did because I so desperately needed a functional PC quickly. Even though it was released in 2009 it still has pretty good technology in it.
Summary: First desktop pc in over 7 years. Got this machine in Nov of 2010, and have not had a problem yet. It runs very quiet The only thing I did was add AVerTV HD DVR and updated from the shipped windows 7 to windows 7 pro. This machine blazes through capturing and burning videos, manipulating photos.
Summary: It would be nice if everything worked, but the SD card reader for loading photos does not work. I spent 2 hours on the line with Tech Support trying to get it working, including a frustrating 30 minutes pulling apart the computer.
Summary: I have been building my own computers since 1998. I had never purchased an HP computer before, and only chose to do so because of the relatively high level of performance I could get for the price as compared to purchasing components with similar specs. This turned out to be a huge mistake.
Summary: Upgrading your technology always involves a mixture of pain in figuring it out and working out glitches vs pleasure from the new capabilities. The pleasure to pain ratio with this purchase was the best I have ever experienced. I have had this computer for about a month.
Summary: I have the desktop for about a month. I purchased this one for photo editing. Most of my photo file size is more than 20 M, my old PC becomes too slow. 470F works as other reviewers said, smooth. It is also very quiet. I give it a 3 star because 1.
