    This is a very well-spent $900 not counting six upgrades so far. A few features were a little quirky (and I must have corrupted something in my quest to download all the free software in sight!), but a full recovery took care of everything. This computer has been remarkably stable and typical of HP’s history of rock-solid electronics designs.

    If you do have a problem (and what new computer doesn’t?), their online chat tech support guys are available 24/7 – and they don’t just get you “out of the way”, they really work with you to try and resolve issues. It sems that every computer has its own personality and, thus, a few little half-malfunctions that never seem to get fixed. For instance, mine comes back out of sleep mode a few seconds after going to sleep. But if every computer has to have one problem, I can live with this one because everything else works GREAT.

    It responds very well to PCI-e upgrades, and a new extra DVD drive dropped right in and was recognized immediately. The add-in actually seems to work a little better than the original. The 6 core processor and (now) 16 gigs of RAM provide remarkable stability and power – I can play 5 videos from 5 different websites simultaneously, with NO glitches or freezes. Pretty amazing!

    As always, they tell you very little about your computer. Hint: Cyberlink DVD Suite is the best one for burning DVD’s, and is included. The biggest problem you’ll have is that you’re probably moving to a 64 bit system for the first time, and some favorite old software won’t run. Windows 7 has a “Compatibility Mode” that sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t. But 64 bit is the new wave, so ya might as well get used to it Pilgrim! Look on the bright side – learning new software is fun.

    GREAT computer, GREAT tech support. HP remains the best in electronics!
