Best Value for Your Money
on November 9, 2012
I think the other two reviewers who posted negative reviews of this computer were simply unlucky in receiving defective units. It is inevitable that computers (which are delicate electronic instrumants) may sometimes arrive with issues that may have been incurred during shipping. It is not necessarily the computer's or makers fault.
I received this computer last week and so far have had no issues. When you check this computer's specs against other units out there right now, you will find that the cost for what you get with this system is beyond compare. Sure this unit does not have some of the high end features some people like such as a touch screen, Blu-ray disc player, tv tuner, bluetooth, etc... but when you consider that for a computer with those features, getting one will be roughly $300-$500 more, I figured I'd wait until my next computer when the cost will have dropped significantly.
What caught my eye about this computer is that overall, it does not lack in any area. It has an excellent processor, great dedicated video card, plenty of memory, georgeous screen, and a fast hard drive. It should be noted that the specs listed in the descriptions on the 1st and 2nd pages are wrong. This computer has a 6GB SDRAM, not 4 like the add says and the hard drive is 7200 rpm, not 5400. So if you see these specs, scroll down a bit and the true specs are shown. This is an error on Amazon's part. For a full list of this unit's specs, you can go to HP's website at [..]
The only other small issue people may have with this unit is that is it pre-loaded with Windows 7. Again this is a small thing as Windows 8 is designed for touch screens. If Windows 8 is something you think you must have, you will receive an offer to purchase it for $14.99 after you buy this computer.
So all in all this is a fantastic deal. If you are looking for an everyday computer with actual processing speed and power, this computer will exceed your expectations.
