Had to buy 2

 

This was such a good buy i bought 2, one for me and one to put by the TV in the living room for my family. The TV recording quality is awesome!

I started out going to build my own PC based around the athlon 64x2 5000 and by the time I had the specs I wanted it was cheaper to buy this PC with the 2g's of ram and 320g hard drive. This machine rocks

None yet on either box

Great deal for the power.

 

A good value, especially if you're going to use it as a media center. However it won't replace your digital cable reciever, which it kind of misleads you about on the box.

Holds one of the fastest CPU's on the market today and has enough RAM and disk space to get you on your feet again. HP support has completely reinvented themselves and is one of the best in the industry, I have no idea what the other reviewer was...

I'd be really happy if the RAM was DDR2 800, but no consumer system has such features yet. Of course this system has a heaping payload of rubbish preinstalled on it, so you'll spend a couple hours removing Wild Tangent games and 40 different AOL Trial...
