Summary: I got this computer in Sept. 2012, the packaging was great. It probably took me about 15min or less from out of the box to surfing the net. We used the touch screen to enable the wireless keyboard and mouse. Awesome! The sound blew me away, for what it is, the audio is really clean. I went from using XP to Windows 7, so there is a little learning curve with the new OS but so much better. I haven't tried the optical drive yet.
Summary: I love this computer. Plug in and it is ready to go. No cords or plug ins. Every plug and play device works instatnly, even my old printer that had an installation disk plugged in and worked. I had problems with the printer on my old system and now it is gone! The touch screen is a nice feature, our young nephews love playing with it. I dont do any gaming or advanced computing, so this computer is more than i need.
Summary: Excelente producto de Hp, la verdad superó mis expectativas, soy ingeniero en computación y es asobroso la capacidad sensorial de la pantalla tactil de este equipo, la relación precio-valor es realmente la mejor que se puede conseguir por 646$, con una memoria ram de6GB y un disco de 1 tera es lo mejor.
Summary: I was hesitant in buying this computer because of the bad reviews. I waited and waited and finally purchased it. I LOVE IT ! I set it up within 5 minutes,no problem at all. I have been using it for a couple months and have not had one issue. Only time will tell, but so far soooooo good!
Summary: I had purchased my first desk top when Windows M E edition was around. There were cables everywhere. There was no place to set up. This new H.P was the best deal for me. I am using it right now as a matter of fact. I was a little worried about buying an H.P. After having some issues on a prior buy of a laptop from H.P. As you can imagine the difference 12 years makes on the desk tops. All this touchsmart technology, wireless cables means more room.
Summary: Bought this computer for my sister, who desperately needed a PC upgrade. She doesn't really use the touch screen capability, but acknowledges it's a good back-up in case the wireless mouse runs out of batteries. The portability of the mouse and keyboard gives the PC a more elevated feel.
