Summary: This computer is just great. I wanted a good gaming rig to be able to play any game on atleast high settings, but was sceptical about building one since I'm really not a tech savvy person. I didn't wanna spend like 2,000 bucks on an overkill Desktop, so I decided to take my chances with this for 800 bucks. 150% worth the price. I've had this computer for about 3 and a half months (Bought it refurbished during christmas) and it's run perfectly.
Summary: I was overdue for an upgrade and glad I chose the HP Pavilion Elite h9-1150. Stylish and powerful! Love the fact it has numerous USB ports (several in the front, some on top, and some in the back). Also, the front accepts media cards with convenience and hides behind a slider when not in use. The wifi capability is terrific...eliminates yet another cord. So far, very pleased with my purchase.
Summary: I like this computer, but there has been one big problem that is a deal breaker for me. When we listen to music or watch video whether online for from the hard drive there are times where there is a momentary stutter every 4-5 minutes. After doing some research we disabled the network adapters and the problem seemed to get better. However, the stuttering has started to crop up again.
Summary: This machine is incredibly fast. It loads programs instantaneously, including the browsers. My only dislike was all of the HP bloatware, but that seems to be par for the course with all machines now. There is one concern...a complete novice may have trouble locating and utilizing the online instructions. Only a bare bones instructions leaflet came with the PC.
Summary: I'm not going to write a highly technical review; it's too late at night, others have already done a fine job in that department, and you can view the complete specs on HP's website. I will say that I am very happy with my purchase, and I offer my recommendation without hesitation. Yes, I could have purchased a machine with a 7200rpm hard drive, a faster processor, a higher-end graphics card, and more RAM, but this computer will do anything that 95% of us may ask of it.
Summary: This was an excellent purchase. The machine has been as solid as a rock and performed as would be expected. No real pros and cons except to say that this machine should be high on your list if your looking.
Summary: This system is. What can I say. Amazing. Now we all know HP isn't exactly a gaming computer only company. But I must give them props on this computer, its sleek design is light and really cool looking with the interior red lighting. The processor and Graphics card is great too! I've spent a while saving up for this computer and reviewing the processor and different types of graphics cards and these ones are pretty good.
Best option out there for a great gaming PC for 1,000 bucks.

Summary: I had to replace my other PC because the CPU fan died (again) which means theres a bigger problem with the PC..and at this point i felt it was just best to replace the whole thing which i dreaded a little because the problem is finding a good computer with what you need for a good price sometimes can be tricky.
