HP Digital Entertainment Center Z555

HP Pavilion Elite m9340f

This is a perfect machine for the advanced home user, student, home theater setup or someone looking for a general high(ish) performance box. Oh, and if you are in need of a machine to run Photoshop... put down that iMac and buy this. For 1/3 the cost...
