This is about what I was expecting. Every computer I have owned in the past 10 years has been an HP, I've never had a problem with them, I recently bought this one as an upgrade from the model I had bought back in 2006, this was a HUGE upgrade. For those of you unfamiliar with the new AMD chipset named "Trinity" or FM2 chipset, it is an "APU" rather than a CPU meaning that it is basically a CPU and GPU in the same chip, AMD has done an amazing job with their integrated graphics in this way, if you are looking to have a budget gaming PC this a great buy, or for pretty much anything else. Very fast, has a 7200rpm hard drive rather than the older and slower 5600rpm, and the 8GB of RAM they start you off with is great too.

I hooked up TWO external DVD drives to this guy- I bought it to convert the DVD library into digital media so I could serve it up to my ROKU using Plex media server. I am able to rip 3 dvd's at a time to Mpeg using freemake video converter WHILE WATCHING NETFLIX without any video stuttering. Absolutely amazing!!!
4cpu (quad core# plus GPU #on die#=APU #AMD A8# is like having 5 processors... or better. Overall experience is great. For what most people do, video performance is more important than parallel processing. I decided to go with an AMD APU over an Intel I5 or I7. Sure there are I7's faster than this guy.. but they're faster for engineering calculations and database servers wheras AMD's APU's are faster for Multi media experiences for general consumers. For an engineering machine I'd buy an I7.. for a home machine I'd go with AMD A Series hands down. Buy an APU #AMD A-Series processor#- Great Value!!!
Small flaw- It has DVI out instead of raw HDMI out- make sure to get a DVI to HDMI cable to hook it to a 32 inch flat screen like I did. Also, since you're going from DVI to HDMI you won't be sending audio over the HDMI- youll have to do that through an Audio cable to computer speakers. If You want the audio to come out of the TV you need to get an aftermarket AMD video card #which will also give you crossfire Dual graphics) and Plug in to the HDMI out on that guy.
Amd's APU Post - processing is amazing- everthing looks better.
