Great Computer


I would recommend to any home user. I am thinking of buying another one for my son.

User Friendly, Much bigger then I anticipated! Very fast

The keyboard took a little bit to get used to but once I did...I like it better

2nd Update


I would buy this again. Sorry for the slight misinformation in my last review.

Great computer. Big, sharp screen ; Correction to last review: HP warranty DOES cover the first 90 days of refurbished products; their global warranty covers it just the same--whether in the US or Canada

Other than what I've mentioned before, there are no cons

Update to first review


Great computer for a great price, but unless you purchase the warranty offered by Newegg, you may be at risk of not having your computer covered by HP's 90-day warranty. I still love Newegg, and I love my computer, but I don't like HAVING to purchase a...

Great Price ; Good value- fast processor, huge HDD, and lots of RAM

I found out that this computer is warrantied for customers in Canada. When I got a pop-up message from HP offering to extend my warranty for 2-years for under $50, I tried to take advantage of it, but once I got to the billing page, it would not allow...

Nice speedy unit that cuts down on the clutter


I would recommend this to others who have similar usage needs. It's not a high end gaming computer, but it is very fast. If I had to do it again, I would purchase the same model. A few years later, I'll be in the market for a higher end model, but this...

I love the bigger screen. I used to have a 19.5 inch screen, and there were times when I wished I could edit Word documents side by side at 100% zoom. Now I can (actually, I can push them to 105%). Opening 100 page documents in Word is pretty fast,...

Apparently this was a product marketed in Canada as well, and the keyboard I got was a bilingual English / French keyboard. The shift keys were hard to get at for me. I bought a Logitech keyboard to replace it, and all is well ; I am now write for a...

Impressive Product


Though there are lists of all-in-ones to choose from, this product stands out from the rest. The interface of a windows 8 computer matched with an all in one touch screen go hand and hand. An HP product tried and true.

fun, affordable, capable all-in-one computer!


I'm a Ph.D. student and I was looking for an all-in-one computer for my home office. I was mainly looking for a strong, fast processor to handle multiple programs running at once, and I was also planning on using my computer as a TV by streaming...

large screen, windows 8.1, fast processing, multiple usb drives

Love my All in One HP


I am slowly learning how to use Windows 8.1.24. But only because I am 71 years old. Kids can do it fine. I love all of the components in one display. It is a 10 for me.

Problems in less than a month


Worked great for about 3 weeks, then on boot up it no longer recognized my operating system. Not sure if it is a BIOS or hard drive issue, or both. Called HP and they didn't even attempt to work through a solution, but told me to send it to their...

nice large touch screen, wireless keyboard and mouse

failed in 3 weeks, keyboard smaller than i'm used to

hP 23 inch screen All in one computer


The set up was easy and the graphics are wonderful. So far it has been great. The Windows 8.1 operating system has been fairly easy to navigate.
