HP Pavilion 23 Touch All-in-One (2015) Review and Ratings


Inspired by Apple's iMac, HP's newest all-in-one trades an aluminum frame and faster performance for a much lower price. It's a fine trade-off for light- to medium-duty computing.

Lots of USB ports ; Attractive design ; Low starting price ; Audio enhancements make a noticeable difference

Ho-hum performance ; Plastic back panel isn’t as nice as aluminum ; Rear-mounted ports are difficult to access

HP’s intent with its Pavilion 23-q019 All-in-One is to offer mainstream utility in an affordable package that’s attractive to boot. On that front, HP succeeds in its mission.

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.

HP All-in-One Referb


I would recommend this to anyone.

This was super easy to set up only took a few minutes and it was running. I have had it for a month now and ran it through its paces and it has held up well. This is going to be a gift for my In-laws and being it was refurbished I wanted to make sure...

The camera seems to shut a bit high wish it was adjustable, as I like my screen tilted back a bit. Otherwise nothing else.

Good PC for Office use


I would recommend. The system comes with a 3 month full warranty since it was bought refurbished. We've been using it for a month now, and very pleased with it. Will have to revisit the review in a year. Connected a cable lock to it, worked just fine....

Easy to set up. Unpacked and turned it on. Touchscreen is cool. Purchased refurbished and no issues. Wireless setup in no time. Windows 10 update was no problem (use advanced settings)

The keyboard is tiny, our church secretary was not comfortable with it. But external ones work fine. Windows 10 still sets up like you are using a tablet but not a fault of the system itself.

I would recommend this product to everyone.

Purchased this product for home use/school work. I was stepping down from a self build and didn't want to spend a lot. This computer had EVERYTHING I was looking for at an unbeatable price. Arrived on a Saturday, had it un-boxed and set up in less than...
