Summary: I thought the duel core would make be faster in processing, but I was wrong. I'm still having the same problem with this computer as with my recent replaced computer. Also I thought the computer comes with a an already loaded startup ware, but was disappointed to find out that this start ware is only temporarily, and I would have to purchase a permanent one at the end of 60 days.
Summary: I actualy thought this computer would be fast and fresh, but it has soooo much bloatware on it that it was not any better than my old one running XP. Typical HP product... I'll throw it away in a couple more years and buy the next "next best thing".
Summary: got this computer 4 months ago and it looks great - perfect for shelf under large tv. this issue is it runs EXTREMELY hot so i had to always leave the doors open on my tv stand. also, due to problems with vista and poor driver support for this unpopular tv tuner card, the tv tuner will not work for some setups (search forums for avermedia m792 to see what i mean).
Summary: I had this computer only a month when the mother board died. I had to ship it back to HP for repair and I was without my computer for about a week. It worked for 5 months and the mother board died again.
Summary: This computer was defective right out of the box. Purchased in June 2009, it repeatedly had errors, setting it back to factory default did not help, neither did customer service. After months of phone calls about the DEFECTIVE SEAGATE HARD DRIVE that was included, which HP KNEW ABOUT and alerted us to, it took them 3 months to replace it, and they sent a BLANK HD, no OS or recovery partition.
Summary: No support, October 9, 2009 By Stan Tomberg (Hendersonville, NC) - See all my reviews On 1/01/09 I called customer service (that is what they call it). I told the tech my internal lightscribe drive would not burn label's. I am not a not a novice and I went through all the steps - uninstalling the drive and reinstalling the drive, etc. I told the the tech that my external lightscribe drive was working fine so it had to be the drive.
Summary: This is my 2nd slimline purchase I just love these computers, so easy to set up and so little space needed. this handles all my computer needs and my kids just love the video card great graphics for there games I would definately recommend this to anyone.
Summary: This machine should to taken off the market. The PC now crashes and does not even boot. I have run the diagnostics on the bios bootup and the memory was causing the problem. So I thought great I will go and replace the memory. $50 dollars later it looked like everything was fixed. So back to normal? Nope. Started crashing again the next day. So sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I even had my IT friend look at this.
