Saw this for $280 and for the specification it was a great deal, have now upgraded this system with Corsair Vengeance Blue 8 GB (2X4 GB) PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3 , Logisys Corp. 550W 120mm Ball Bearing Fan with PSU ATX 550 Power Supply and EVGA GeForce GTX 650 1024MB GDDR5 DVI mHDMI Graphics Card all again from Amazon to make a really decent gaming pc all for under $500! cant complain about that…. Thankyou Amazon.
To note about upgrading graphics on this pc, there is NO option to disable the internal graphics in the BIOS on this HP Pavilion, like many others. Before adding a new graphics card in the PCI express slot, disable the Intel graphics in Device Manager (DO NOT UNINSTALL!), turn system off, add new graphics card, restart system, add new graphics card drivers.

I really needed a good computer, since my old one finally died, and couldn’t believe the price I got this one for during the lightning deals. Shipping was Super Fast, I received it within 3 days of ordering. It came packaged very secure! Set up was so Easy, and HP even included a nice keyboard and mouse, Free! Windows 8 is Great! It’s user friendly, easy to navigate, I think I’m going to be so spoiled! Even typing this review it has a built in spell check that corrects every mistake! I loved the wireless internet! After set up, which only took a few minutes, all I had to do was click the Internet Explorer button and I was online! No extra wires to run for Internet! Yay! It only took a few minutes to figure out the setup of everything, and I’m learning more every time I log on, Think I’m gonna like Windows 8, and I think others will to, just explore and you will see how easy it is! The programs and Apps are super Fast, loading time is a blink of an eye! Even loading a movie from Netflix was super fast! You can watch movies, make movies and CDs and so much more! I am still exploring and checking everything out but one thing is for sure, This computer is so Very Worth Buying, I am recommending it Highly! Even my son so wants to take this toy from me! Thanks HP, you did Good with this one!
I just received this after buying in for a huge discount on cyber Monday. So far it is EASY to set up and has worked without any trouble! I just plugged in all my old things and went through the sign in process to set things up. I was nervous since it was cyber Monday deal and there were no reviews, but no complaints here.
That said….. I am not a techy! We do not have to use a computer for much here at home except for web browsing, school assignments, saving photos, itunes, writing school papers, etc… so we don’t demand much, but I think this one is the perfect replacement since our 6 year old desktop bit the dust last week.
