"Great Performance at Reasonable Price"4.5 starson by Masino
Pros: Fast, versatile, economical, easy to set up and use. Reasonably large screen.
Cons: As with almost all new computers, lots of bloatware to get rid of. Windows 8 takes some getting used to. Skimpy documentation.
Summary: Found it on the HP website for $1149.99. i7 3.1 processor, 8gb RAM, blu-ray player, no graphics card (extra cost option), wireless keyboard and mouse. After looking at your report and examining the graphs, I saw that there is not much difference between the HP and the Dell. Plus: Why do your reviewers assume that all users are gamers and want huge screens? 23" fits nicely in my space and is easy to manipulate the touch screen. I do a good deal of word processing and photo editing and watch an occasional disk or Netflix stream. I was astounded at the quality of image and sound on this set. The heart of my home theater is a Pioneer Kuro t.v., so I have a good standard of comparison. The movies play perfectly--no hesitation of artifacts. My photos look so much better than they did on my last monitor--a 24" Dell. I load and edit RAW image files in Adobe Photoshop Elements speedily with no hangups or slowdowns. For a user with moderate demands I can't think of a better computer that this. Highly recommended.
