Ok PC

 

Good value

Small form factor, will fit almost anywhere. Decent performance for the price. Comes with keyboard and mouse

Arrived with a damaged install of Win 8.1. Could not update, reset or refresh the PC. Had to download the OS from Microsoft and re-install using that media

STAY AWAY!

 

Bought them for a low end office. I intended to put Windows 7 on for the old lady that runs the church office. There are windows 8 drivers though. Not a mention of this in the description.

Cheap, decent processsor, nice case

NO Windows 7 driver from HP. There is a Windows 8 version but NO Windows 10 drivers for video, network or usb. Useless

Fine Basic Workstation (After RAM Upgrade)

1) Slim form factor, 2) quiet, 3)low heat/low power consumption, 4) Memory upgradeable to 16GB, 5) Inexpensive and fast shipping, 6) Clean case, not a scratch

1) Ships with windows 8 (no thanks), 2) only 4GB memory installed. Spend the extra $80 bucks to upgrade to 16GB, you will thank yourself. 3) hard to find drivers for if you downgrade to Win & pro

nice setup for the money

 

for the price paid (120 after rebate) the cost of the computer with windows 8 pro is almost a no brainer. obviously you aren't going to be playing the latest greatest games on this but for a work machine running IE, office applications, etc.. it's more...

cost, windows 8 pro, small form factor, low power consumption, mine came with qualcomm aetheros wifi adapter even though wifi is not listed in the specs anywhere ; free upgrade to windows 8.1 pro, then free upgrade to windows 10 pro
