Summary: Purchased this system for my relatives to replace their Dell desktop that was infected with trojans/adwares. This is a great system for home and possibly business use. Very speedy and quiet. Arrived ready to go out of the box, even included a one year trial of Norton antivirus. I purchased the HP wide monitor (gloss panel) from Sam's and it looks great. Now the caveat.
Summary: This is my 4th desktop. First I had an IBM, then Compaq and the last was a Dell. The HP has been the most positive right out of the box. Setup was the easiest yet. Used transfer cable from old computer to new and all went extremely well. I work from home so I needed a workhorse computer and my 7 year old plus XP computer was exhibiting problems. I worried the i3 processor wouldn't be enough for my purposes but it is great. Windows 7 is a dream.
Summary: This computer is amazing. This was the easiest computer I have ever set up. Follow the on-screen instructions and the computer does everything for you from locating and installing drivers for devices. Connecting to my new wireless router was also a breeze. This was a brand new computer in the original packaging and the seller wnet a step further and placed it in another box with the air filled protective wrapping to make sure it was damaged during shipping.
Summary: My last PC's were Gateway, with my last PC probably 6-7 years olds, and I wanted to upgrade to something current. Started hunting around and reading reviews and decided to go with HP (good reputation for quality and technology). My son pushed me towards the I3 processor as a step up from teh dual core and quad core bargains out there. Glad I did, this computer hums, and I really think Microsoft did a great job with Windows 7 as well.
Summary: Merry Christmas to All, Could you please start to send electricals ( computer, gadgets, phones etc) to Australia, as they are such good value compared to here, it is a shame you do not ship bulky items to Australia. Maybe a extra charge for secure bubble wrapping and casing, do you think you will allow this in the future? Kind Regards Mary Kondos. P.S Love your site.
