HP Pavilion #TouchSmart #All-in-One

My husband knows that I needed a new  computer to do my online gig.  My old one was formerly  owned by my  Father-in-law , he used it to communicate with us when we were still in South Korea.  When we came back here in 2010, he gave it to me since hoe doesn't have any use  for it.  I was very grateful since the PC I was using when we were still overseas was getting old also.  

Anyway, my husband looked  online for good deals on PC but he did not find any so he took me to  Walmart to see if they have any there.  We were surprised to learn that  there's only two of them in the box.  They don't even have any on display.  Is this  an indication that  they are going to  terminate  desktop computers soon?  

We chose this HP Pavilion 23.  It cost $798.
  • It's a 23" touchscreen with AMD A6-6400k processor.  
  • It's 4GB system memory is way bigger than the one I  formerly have.  The  size of its hard drive is 1TB which is  really good.  
  • It also has a multi DVD burner with slim tray at the side.  
  • It has a built in WiFi.  
  • I like the wireless keyboard and mouse that came with it.  
  • It has one slot for  card reader, although it said that it is a 6-in-1, I haven't figured out how to use six.  Right now, I can only use the memory card of my   DSLR but not the  memory card for my point and shoot.  Hubby said that I might need to buy a adaptor for it.  
  • The Windows 8 is giving me a headache though.  I don't like it that it makes the  easy things more complicated, sigh.  
  • The thing that I don't like the most of this PC is the noise it makes, it triggers my migraine all the time.

It can be very challenging to find just the right computer that will serve our needs well.

I like that it's very compact and light weight. It looks more like a tablet, noh? but with slots and keyboard and mouse.

It's a good deal for this package, go for it and use the compact way.

That is a very nice PC that you got sis. Congrats!

Unknown said...

I love the touch screen feature and how big it is!

Nova said...

what a great deal and gift you have here, cpu-free and that touchscreen is just wonderful, plus it is 23" must be too big.

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

Wow, this is a good deal na compared sa iba!

Marie said...

That is a great deal but I was wondering - like Nova if the 23" is too big? I just use a netbook for my blogging because I go everywhere lol. I have to get the hang pa nga with the ipad which I log more often. The annoying thing about pads is the auto correct lol. The touch screen is an added plus ha! gusto ko yan!

Franc Ramon said...

That's really a handy and powerful tool that can double as a laptop.

nadine said...

Yay for a new pc!!!
I want to get a new one too and liked the idea of having an All in One computer before, my only doubt however is if I get one, I might don't like the fact that you can't upgrade it anymore unless it is indeed upgradeable.

Mom and I were looking at this same computer last night around 1 am while on the phone trying to decide which would be the better choice. Her other hp pooped out on her after 2 years. It still came on though just the screen didnt. she took it to a guy who I'll soon be writing about and he made it so it wont come on at all now! Best buy has it now, they ghosted the drive and put it all on a new external hard drive. We have 5 laptops in our home and 2 desktops. The desktops are old but still working. 2 laptops are older too, and 3 are new from feb 2013. We have to have a computer or 10 lmao :)
