Summary: I bought this PC. Suddenly wireless adaptor stopped working. I contacted one of their 'so called' technician/expert, also posted to their support forum. That expert says that Windows 8 does not have any mandatory updates to connect to VPN. Rather than solving my problem, he started a game or words with me. It is still unsolved. Probably this will be my first and last HP machine. Stay away from HP machines if you can.
Summary: I've had this computer for 14 months. I bought this computer from Office Max. Computer performance was great, processing speed was never an issue. However, 8 weeks past the 1 year warranty I get the "hard drive imminent failure" error. Unfortunately, I am familiar with this error because I got the same error on my HP laptop just 4 weeks past the 1 year warranty.
