The graphics score seams a bit low to me as the machine plays Witcher 2, a high graphics games in comfort.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Really quiet. Brilliant spec. Wireless. Really powerful. Lightscribe CD/DVD. Excellent build quality . HP is a name I know I can trust.
Bad points:
Wireless keyboard & Mouse ( I only wanted the Processor so have just thrown them away (battery life was very poor)). As is usual nowadays, it came full of Bloatware (Crapware) and took ages to remove.

Bob,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
For a high specification desktop this was the cheapest and best value for money that I could find. The core i7 processor is nearly the fastest around, bettered only by the i7 extreme.
Bad points:
For me the bundled software trials are surplus to my requirements and do not add value to the product. Non trial software programs that do not expire after a certain time when one would then have to pay a subscription to keep using the programs, would have been more useful to me. The only part of this configuration that I would upgrade would be the graphics card, which is not rated very highly when one runs the Windows 7 experience utility, it brings the mark down for the whole system.

Brian, Matlock Music & entertainment fan

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
A nice fast computer with ample disk space but any accompanying documentation conspicuous by it's absence, just a pictorial illustration sheet which would apply to almost any desktop computer that Hewlett Packard produce and in reality of very little purpose. The computer is obviously overloaded with HP software which pops up at very inconvenient moments.
Bad points:
On setting up the wireless mouse just would not connect and after installing a USB mouse to get things going the supplied mouse decided it did want to work but it eats batteries almost as quick as you can put them in. The Blue Ray DVD for writing or veiwing Blue Ray Discs (the only disk writer installed on this computer) would not work at all, it had obviously suffered damage in transit, however the computer store corrected this problem immediately when I took the computer back to them which I thought was very good.
