I have used other brands of computers (at work) but for my personal use, I will always use HP. The quality, performance, price, and features cannot be beaten. Shipping was amazing! I ordered my new computer online Sunday night, by Wednesday morning it was at my door! Awesome. The website was very user friendly, I found what I was looking for in about 10 to 15 minutes. This computer is so quite, if it didn't have the blue light bar at the top, I wouldn't know it was on. Oh, and by the way, blue is my favorite color, so I was really pleased with that! Setup was a breeze, no problems. I am extremely and completely happy with my purchase. I will never use anything but an HP. In face, my printer that I was using with my last computer would not work with this one (to old) so I just purchased a new printer from HP last night.
