Not being a computer expert, I wanted a upgrade to my 8+ year old out dated HP computer. It servved me well but was at times extremely slow. I wanted another HP and did a little research as to proccessor size, memory, speed etc, and found this one to be what I was looking for. It came with a 23" monitor and that was a huge improvement over the little 15" I had before. The speakers that come with it are abit small, more appropriate for a laptop, and not what I would consider adequate for good quality and volume, but do serve the purpose untill you want to upgrade.
As far a function and speed, its really a nice computer, and have no complaints. I think the ISP speed has alot to do with downloads etc, and my provider isn't the greatest, but the computer does operate alot faster than my old one.
I did contact HP support a few times, about different things, mainly issues with getting familiar with window7, I was used to xp. And I must say they were very courteious and helpfull with all of my contact with them. There may be a bit of a language issue at times, but nothing that we couldn't work through.
All and all in my non-expert opinion, I think it is a great computer and value. By the way, it was about $70 less by ordering it on line from the store price. I researched it on Walmarts web sight and when I went to my local Walmart store the price was $698.00. I asked the clerk why the price difference and he said I could use their online service, create an account and buy it for the web site price. Once the purchase is made and they get the notification back, I could take it home. And thats what I did and within in 20 minutes I was out the door with the computer, less about $70 from the store price.
Hope this of some help, and enjoy your new computer should you decide to purchase this model/bundled package.
