Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great so far

 

If you need support for three monitors, you should look at the DeskPro 600 which also has more memory slots, PCIe slots and USB 3.0 ports..

Bought three of these. Reasonably fast. Users like them. Comes with downgrade to Windows 7 Professional and three-year warranty. Also has media to upgrade to Windows 8.1

Limited expandability. Only two memory slots. Supports only two monitors

First time for me to load a new computer! Great!

 

Did hp actually try to hide the on - off button? Had problem locating it first time and now that I know where it is, have trouble getting my normal "man finger" in slot to start machine! Sounds trivial but really poses a problem when with some...
