Excerpt: This is not the first time I have made a purchase from Staples. I made purchases from printing paper to school supplies for my children to laptops and now an HP Pavillion Destop Computer. I love HP products and have used this brand for many years and hardly have any problems with their products.
Excerpt: I choose the HP due to it's Intel processor and the fact that I've had good luck with HP products. The price was very good and setup and loading of programs was very straight forward. The keyboard has a good feel to it. The one call I did make to HP help was answered quickly and there was no high pressure sales talk for protection programs or the like during the conversation that usually goes along with any help question. I was very thankful for that.
Excerpt: I was lured to this model because it was still using Windows 7. I could have bought another desktop with similar specs but cheaper and with Windows 8 but I find Windows 8 alittle frustrating to use. Windows 8 feels like the program was going backwards because its not simple to use. Its shouldnt be all about the design but also user friendliness. Other than that its your eveeyday type desktop, nothing special and nothing to complain about.
Excerpt: This is not just the run of the mill response to a survey. This is a high five to Staples for the easy and helpful experience this customer had in his purchase of a new computer. Simply put, I could have purchased the HP 500-281 online, but I decided to work with Staples on this due to the excellent tech service I recieved for my earlier HP computer that I owned for 7 years.
Excerpt: We have been wanting to replace our old HP desktop with XP because it was really slow & running out of storage. We did not think you could still purchase a new desktop with Windows 7 and our friends did not recommend Windows 8 or 8.1. We had the STAPLES technician set it up in our home. It is definitely worth the ease and convenience to have the setup done correctly & quickly. We have only been using it a short time but everything is fine.
Excerpt: Perfect for the job is the appropriate phrase for this purchase. We've never had a system to function as a server, but needed to for some time. This HP Pavilion was a great choice for its size, price, and the fact it ran W7. We did expand the RAM to 12 and upgrade to W7 ultimate (which was very easy to do from the Microsoft website),but otherwise it's just as it came out of the box.
