Also on the memory, how many slots does it hold. I see it comes shipped with 8gb, but is expandable to 32.

  • A. Refurbished means that it was returned for one reason or another. It was then gone through and brought up to standard. It's good as new, or maybe better. It came with 8GB of RAM, has 4GB cards x 2. It also has 2 empty slots. (4 total). I purchased 32 GB of RAM (8 GB x 4). However, I will have to upgrade Win 7 Home to Professional to take advantage of the full 32 GB. As, Win 7 Home Premium only supports 16 GB of RAM.

  • A. HP products, that are factory refurbished, are tested by HP to meet the standards of a new product. New products that are returned to HP have the option of being refurbished. The customer may have returned the product due to malfunction, damage, change of mind, or purchase of the wrong product. Even if nothing is wrong with the product, it cannot be resold as a new product. Unfortunately, I do not have information on the reason why a particular model was returned. Some HP refurbished products may or may not have small, slight blemishes or dents. These would not be severe, but barely noticeable, if at all. Refurbished products ship with the same items shipped with the original product, and may include either the standard HP warranty, limited warranty, or no warranty. MORE REFURBISHED This HP factory-refurbished PC is not just one individual unit that has been factory-refurbished. It is a whole stock of the same model that has been factory-refurbished by Hewlett-Packard and packaged for resale by Best Buy. Each individual PC may have been returned for a different reason, whether it was a hardware issue, the product was damaged, the customer changed their mind, or the customer initially purchased the wrong product. In all cases, we are not able to sell the product as a "new" product. I am not able to provide information on why each individual model was refurbished. Please keep in mind that HP will offer product recalls for PC models that are having the same ongoing issues, or stop selling that model entirely. Therefore, HP would not refurbish a whole line of PCs if they are all having the same issues. HP PCs also undergo thousands of hours of testing to ensure reliability and functionality, and factory-refurbished models are tested more extensively than new models. This HP PC has four memory slots that is upgradable to 32GB. Each memory slot can hold DDR3 PC3-12800, DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-14900 with a maximum of 8GB per slot.

I bought this desktop to upgrade from a very old Dell. I got the following. Windows 7 Home Premium [64-bit] • 2nd Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2320 processor [3.0GHz, 6MB Shared Cache] • 6GB DDR3-1333MHz SDRAM [2 DIMMs] from 4GB •1TB hard drive • Integrated Intel(R) HD Graphics [DVI-D & DVI-D, DX 10.1] - (the standard factory interface) • SuperMulti DVD Burner • Integrated Ethernet port• 15-in-1 memory card reader, 2 USB 3.0, audio • Beats Audio (tm) -- integrated studio quality sound • HP wireless keyboard and wireless optical mouse The speed is wonderful. I strongly recommend this PC for average normal user. I went with the factory/standard video card because I just do normal web/e-mail and it does wonderful. Per the Microsoft system performance check the video was the slowest however its perfect for me. Therefore per this test I would recommed upgrading the video card is your a gamer which I am not. Processor, memory and hard disk had extremely high scores. I love the two USB ports on the front for easy access.

It's a long story, but suffice it to say that after being a Dell customer for over 10 yrs. (& 3 computers) I made the decision to give hp.com a chance. I'm very happy w/ the ease of online ordering from HP as well as with my computer as ordered and ease of setup. I received everything in my order except the headphones sooner than expected and only 6 days after placing my order, and the headphones arrived the following day, just as the order tracking said! I'm not a computer expert by any means, but even reading the directions over again and taking my time w/ the connections, I had it set up and working in right at an hour. Later today, I'll try hooking up my printer and camera. Printer is an older HP that I just love, so I hope the drivers will be right. Camera is almost as old, different brand, but I'm very happy w/ it also. So wish me luck on that! Very nice solid looking system. I can't afford top of the line, but I'm very happy w/ this one!

I am very pleased with this computer, which I have had for a month. It has the AMD Phenom processor upgrade, which may be a reason why it is so speedy. Otherwise, the config is standard. There were no problems in setup or data transfers using Win 7 included software. The PC recognized peripherals without a problem. This PC replaced my old HP Vista computer. Win 7 is clearly superior. The performance is clearly better. Bootup is much faster. Programs also load more quickly. Wish I had upgraded earlier. This PC has very good multimedia performance, including sound and video. There is some "bloatware" but it's easy to get rid of, and it helps keep the price down. Rather than a paid-for antivirus, you may want to consider Microsoft Security Essentials, which is a free download; it loads quickly and works very well with this PC. If you are looking for a desktop PC, this is a good choice. Overall, a favorable price for a lot of performance.

Online order form was misleading about USB ports

Customer review by rshpe

The online photograph for that selection was a picture of the front of the computer and the multimedia card slots, so I assumed that the choice between 2 or 4 USB ports was for the number of additional ports on the front of the computer, not the total number of USB ports. My last HP desktop which is over 2 years old had 4 ports on the front and 6 in the back, which were all used - and that computer had an LPT port as well as mouse and keyboard ports. This Pavilion p7qe only has 4 USB ports total, all in the back, and it does not have LPT or mouse or keyboard ports, so now I in addition to USB ports for my old devices, I now need three more USB ports to take their place. This means I have a newer computer that requires more USB devices but has fewer ports than the old one. I don't like having to use a USB hub. Besides more money for a good quality, there don't seem to be any available with more than 7 ports, and also it adds significant clutter to my desk, which I thought was one of the big selling points of having all these wireless devices.

When I purchased my previous computer I bought the "standard" offering. Six years later it was sub-standard to say the least and frustrating me to no end - incredibly slow, often had to restart programs, etc. I finally made the decision to buy a new computer. I had not purchased from HP before, but ultimately went with them due to price, brand, and most importantly, the ability to have greater customization of hardware than the maker of my previous computer. It arrived quickly; set up was simple; and I was up and running in no time. I have had it for about a month now and so far no problems. The speed is amazing and my productivity has greatly increased. My frustration has definitely decreased! Only real complaint is that the keyboard and mouse look and feel cheap. I opted to keep my existing mouse even though it doesn't always play nice with Windows 7. I may replace keyboard down the line.

Computer is nice, Just don't care much for the acclaimed Win7. Machine came with Home Premium but I bought the upgrade to Win 7 Professional in the hope to use some of my Win XP printers and scanners. The recommended Win XP download possible with Win Prof. and Ultimate did not solve everything. Got one printer back with the other stuff still incompatible. Can't blame the machine for this lousy Win stuff. Computer could use a few more USB 2, has no USB 3, outlets. By the time the Battery back up is hooked and a couple of external back up drives and the camera is hooked for download there aren't any outlets left. Will install a USB card. Hopefully there is room for hook up to the mobo. Need my "My Pictures" file thumbnail view, not the dumb view with Win 7. Want my address book to be like Win XP's not that dumb "Contact" by Win 7. Stupid. Win XP makes computing so much easier. People say "oh you'll like Win 7 it's so much better." Ha, not in my book. Not to mention the unused printers and scanners sitting around. No Microsoft Picture Manager either with the slider enlargement adjustment.

I purchased this pc as a replacement for a 5 year old HP computer. This one runs circles around the older one. I am very impressed with it.

It was time to update my computer and this time decided to get one that is already assembled rather than replace components. This proved to be a good choice. The HP Pavilion p7qe customizable Desktop PC is proving to be a quiet-fast machine. I wish I could say the same for Windows 7 but Microsoft eliminated useful features from XP with features that are entertaining but not necessarily practical. Windows 7 64 bit is faster but XP was designed for those with office skills and made work much more straight forward. the The HP Pavilion p7qe came ready to work and easy to set up in very little time. One needs to read the instructions before beginning and it is simple for even the novice. I got the wireless keyboard and mouse which set up nicely but it is ergonomic. I came up with a manual typewriter ("a what?") so I prefer the old keyboard layout better but I am getting accustomed to the circuilar configuration. The new HP 2211x monitor is a nice wide screen. I just wish that I could have the XP display properties to clean up the Windows 7 desktop. I still have my HP notebook with XP on it so I can use programs that are not compatable with 64 bit.

This seems to be a good computer. I'v had it for over a month now and I use it frequently. I had absolutly no problem with this computer yet, and having had a few HP Computers before this one, I dont expect any problems, besause I have not had any problems with my previous HP Computers. One thing that I am a little bit concerned with is the hard drive. I'm use to Western Digital HD's, they run silently, and I have not had any problems with them in the past. In this Computer you can hear the bearings cracling when the HD is spining, which tells me that this is not a WDHD, some other brands are not so good. My previos two HP Desktop Computers had WDHD's. I could possably be wrong, I have not opened the Computer to see whats in there. Other than that this Computer is fast, graphics are cristal clear and its very stable.
