I might, but it wouldn't necessarily be glowing.... as I struggle with the HP h8-1214 I swiped from Woot back in May or June.... this model has 2 gig more RAM and a half a pterodactyl of hard drive more, but I'm reading online of the many (like myself) that are finding these AMD HPs can't boot with an external USB hard drive attached, as I have discovered..... but other than that, it's pretty!

This is a spectacular machine at this price. A close friend brought the nearly identical computer (his had 4GB RAM) to me to fix because it was so slow. I had to re-install Windows (using the restore partition already on the hard drive). After removing all of the pre-installed bloatware, teaseware, crapware and tempware (including the pre-installed Norton Antivirus) BEFORE doing anything else made this thing lightning fast.
Word to the wise... remove everything in the add/remove programs that begin with HP. You don't need them.
