Summary: This computer would work amazing for office work or any school projects. Although it isnt to fond for playing high end games. The computer can run Minecraft at 60 fps on a 1080p monitor. Although, Arma 2 can only run at around 14 fps when playing dayz so i assume that it wont be able to run Battlefield or any other high end game. I would HIGHLY recommend getting a new graphics card such as the EVGA GeForce GTX650Ti Boost SuperClocked.
Summary: Spent an entire day having things installed for use - went to use it and it crashed. Spent almost 2 hrs on the phone w/someone in another country trying to solve the problem. Solution - problem with the computer - had to be set back to default - all the time spent in installation was wasted! NOT THRILLED!!!!!
Summary: The good: The product arrived as scheduled. It was functional immediately. I upgraded to Windows 8 Pro to get the functionality of Windows Media Center. Price was great. Product is well engineered by HP. Application Plan: My plan was to port the extra things I had added to a Windows 7 32 bit computer to the new computer with better performance and storage upgrade.
Summary: The hardware is fine, does the job at the right price. However this was my first brush with Windows 8, and it completely destroyed the user experience. After hours of screaming at the screen I managed to install some applications that reverted some of the interactions to be Windows 7-like, making the box usable, but still not a good experience.
Summary: If you purchase the computer you will also need to buy a stronger power supply as the one it comes with is crap. it will constantly freeze up while playing websites such as youtube and other players. I also found that if you have to many things plugged in it will also freeze up to where you need to reboot several times. (keyboard,mouse,and usb speaker was enough to freeze it.
Summary: Maybe I'm being picky, but first impressions are lasting impressions. After opening the box containing the computer, keyboard, mouse and etc., I was a bit disappointed before plugging it in. If the quality of the keyboard is any indication of what the computer will be like, I'll be disappointed. In all of my years I've never seen a cheaper quality keyboard with a new computer.
Summary: The machine was what was advertised to have as far as hardware goes. Good performer. The only problem was that I did not expect it to have so many scratches and to be so worn out on the outside. It clearly showed that it was used for some time before being returned to the factory. I expected it to have less cosmetic problems, so I am giving it only 4 stars.
Summary: It was ship to me in a timely fashion, set it up it lasted 5 days started to have problems, called customer service in India had a translation problem, couldn't fix it over the phone had to send it back, they put a new mother board in it and ship it back within a week which was good service since I thought I wouldn't see it for a couple of weeks.Had it running for a week now seems to ok, but you would think a new machine out of the box would last more than 5 days I...
