However, I was quite surprised by the extensive bloatware (unnecessary software) on the PC. I had bought a higher-end (than this, not top of the line but slightly upper end) PC from HP around 16 months or maybe longer ago and it had relatively little, aside from a number of HP utilities of dubious performance but no big deal (readily apparent and easy to turn off/on as desired). So I didn't expect the onslaught of absurd additional software packed onto this, ranging from some HP recipe software to other various software aimed at getting you to buy services. I spent well over half an hour just uninstalling software, much to my dismay. I realize this is an increasingly common trend and should have realized with HP's rush in the last year to be a "software company" they might have done something this annoying, but nonetheless disappointed in this respect.
Got it set up and everything was going swimmingly. Excel, Word, iTunes all are working well. Then I went to try to watch a video online and that's where the troubles began. At first I was able to watch a few episodes of Parks and Rec online, but after that first viewing the computer started crashing. Totally unresponsive, ctrl-alt-del doesn't work, have to just hold down the power button until it shuts off. Tried disabling flash hardware acceleration, uninstalled and re-installed firefox and ie, updated my drivers, did a clean boot, tried the microsoft fix-it tool, started it in selective startup, nothing doing. Then of course Microsoft tells me I have to purchase support if I want to talk to somebody about it.
You may be thinking to yourself, well just don't watch videos online. I agree, it's not a huge sacrifice. But you don't realize just how many websites have videos that load automatically until you have a computer that crashes every time it happens. NY Times(sometimes), ESPN, Epicurious, any website that automatically loads a video introduction. Trust me, they're everywhere.
It's frustrating, and without this glitch I would probably give this computer a much higher rating than 2 stars. Maybe you'll get one that this doesn't happen to, but in my experience you might want to shell out for something a little more expensive that has a slot to add a graphics card or something so you can get around the issue. Good luck.
UPDATE: 7 weeks later and this HP has been perfect. I usually have it running 24 hours a day (last turned it off 2 weeks ago). My house has occassionally had power interruptions that obviously force the power off to every electronic in my house..... this HP restarts without any issues even under that stress. Wow, what a Great PC!
