This computer came equipped with a few decent parts and a long list of annoying features.

On the plus side, it's energy efficient and doesn't produce much heat, has quiet fans and the hard drive, and came preloaded with Windows XP. Those were the major attributes I wanted, andI'll likely keep the machine. However, getting it to an acceptable configuration will be a major project.

* It's graphics controller is poor, integrated into the mother board, and has no DVI port. Fortunately, there are available slots to allow an upgrade.

* Besides the operating system and Norton AV, the preloaded software is either subpar or useless. I'd recommend taking the time to remove the useless and advertising software, to keep it from loading at the start and taking up the memory.

* I was astonished to find the statement on HP web site that all of HP INKJET PRINTERS WILL BE INCOMPATIBLE WITH NEWER HP COMPUTERS running the 64-bit Win-XP! However, I did manage to load an older driver for my HP PhotoJet after several attempts.

* The included DVD-R dirve is the only removable media device, seems to be of poor quality and beginning to make funny noises. I am planning to add a DVD-ROM drive as a backup.

Overall, my level of satisfaction with this system could be worth another star or two, if the useless software and adware came as an option rather than preloaded (and that's at no extra cost to HP).
