HP Pavilion 23-b040xt


If you're buying a computer for the whole family, you don't have to spend a small fortune. The living room computer should offer smooth operations while surfing the web or watching videos. The HP Pavilion 23-b040xt does just that. It is not ideal for...

You'll be able to do your homework, edit video and stream video without spending too much money

At its affordable price, you won't be able to play games or watch Blu-ray videos

If you need a central computer for everyone in the family to use, the HP Pavilion 23-b040xt is great for surfing the web, streaming movies and even editing images and video.

Great computer


I mainly bought this computer because my laptop died and I needed a computer that will allow me to edit my photos with Lightroom and Photoshop. What I love about this all in one computer is the huge screen and the space saving. Microsoft 8 is awesome...

23" Screen Minus Bloatware = Decent PC


Once all the horrible software is removed the system memory can finally breathe. The CPU is a tad slow but this PC will play high definition youtube videos. After a few hours of removing the software it turns into a decent PC that is perfect for web...

The large and clear screen

Bloatware which will take hours to remove

One of the biggest pieces of garbage on the market


I've had the misfortune of having to set up a couple of these sleds for clients of mine and have to say, this is one of the biggest pieces of junk around. Slow as molasses, underpowered, useless piece of junk. Like all HP garbage, it comes preloaded...

Nice looking piece of furniture

Works fine.


It was easy to set up and everything worked as it should. I was on the internet in 10 minutes. I do not use this computer for office programs and such but for internet use. For that I have found no fault as yet. Had this just a few days.This product...

No problem on internet or setup. It does it all

It is sensitive to awakening when in sleep mode. I will see it on at times when there may be a spike in the wireless net

Sloooooow unit, taking it back


I'm really not doing anything that should be testing this new computer. Just having a few tabs open in Firefox it is so slow to respond to any input, even just scrolling. Sometimes the browser will just hang up for several seconds for no apparent...

Decent design

Too slow
