Excerpt: If you aren’t interested in Blu-ray or demanding games, the h8-1010 can serve as a fine family or productivity PC. Note, though: Faster models with better features (and less bloatware) cost just a little more.
Conclusion: The HP Pavilion Elite h8-1010 is a capable Core i5 desktop with a handful of nice features, including wireless networking, a spacious hard drive, and a dedicated, albeit low-end, video card. But there are better performing systems in this price range.
Pros: Reasonably priced. Dedicated graphics with HDMI out. Big hard drive. Wi-Fi enabled.
