HP put together an affordable high-power unit that's ideal for graphics work. Options to run default HP or Nvidia color settings can make for close enough tolerances to make it compatible with Pantone system, if calibrated properly. Not the latest, but 2nd to the latest technology - a year or so behind. The only test this PC didn't pass yet is the test of time. My last PC was a Sony "92 gaming pc, that lasted almost 11 years, running 12 -16 hours per day. I sure hope to see that out of this one, and think it just might do near the same.
It took no problem running 15 differnet programs at the same time. Click and open, just as fast as you can say it, with all those programs open. I did't notice any drag or bogging down until after adding more and more programs, all the way up to 147 at last count. I found that unbelievable, but true. I think I really got a diamond in the rough in this PC for graphic design work. Time is everything, and much less than the Macs can trip and stumble, this PC seldom doesn't come through, only when new bugs are introduced via the internet. I'd rate this PC 9.5 of 10 stars, only because every machine can improve at one thing or another.?

From Cons: continue - and they both get a squeaking, grinding noise. The machine can run hot after prolonged usage (4 -5 hours). HP recommends shutting down every few hours, most likely due to the heat buildup, but a $5 plug an play, external PC fan takes care of this, so it can run 10 - 15 hours straight through without trouble.
