Summary: The HP Pavilion MS214 is an attractive all-in-one computer with a reasonably fast processor and a reasonably low price.
For about the same price you can pick up an
Asus Eee Top ET2002
with a larger screen and NVIDIA graphics. But the Asus model is hampered by a slow Intel Atom processor. Or you could just pick up a cheap desktop and monitor for even less, but they’ll take much more space in your home office, bedroom, kitchen, or wherever you plan to put this PC.
Conclusion: The HP isn't built for benchmark speed tests (its Windows Experience Index, dragged down by sub-Aero-worthy graphics, is a wimpy 2.9 on the operating system's 7.9-point scale). But we were curious, so we can report that the MS214 rendered Cinebench R10 's sample scene in five and a half minutes.
