Desktops & Their Monitors

Somewhere in a castle in the hills of Europe a mad scientist cackles as he splices body parts and furniture together. Lapdeskstein howls as it awakens, searching for a desktop computer which it can claim as it's own. BOOO! Ha ha, it's fun to be scared, right? But it's not fun to miss out on deals. Don't let Lapdeskstein steal your desktop! ACT NOW, YOU FOOL, ACT NOW

Does the i3 desktop come with a Windows 8 DVD, or is it a "restore partition" on the HD? I am thining of adding a smaller SSD as a boot drive, and re-installing Windows, but that gets tougher if Windows 8 is not included on the DVD.

Most that I've seen have a restore partition. You can go to the HP site on how to create a restore DVD.

If all else fails, you should be able to contact HP for restore media. Jut note that with WIN 8, the product key is now in the BIOS. There will not be a sticker on the machine.

It does not look as if any of the desktops come with a Windows 8 DVD.

These come up every few weeks or so (the i7 HPs) to little fanfare. Are these great deals? Seems like they're solid machines, but there's not much talk. Are these that straight-forward that there's not much to say?

Saw a better deal on SD in an Inspiron 8770 i7 with 16GB for $615 but that was gone fast.

Is this a good all around internet machine? Or should I be terrified that the power supply is underpowered? Seems 65 watts is a little light.

So, these monitors...what are your opinions? Anyone own one, or a similar product, and feel that these are/n't worth it? Kind'a interested in the portable usb-powered 16", but Amazon has it for $3 more, but free shipping, which means $2 less, and brand new (not refurb). So...wassup?

I've noticed that too. I guess I'm going to amazon and buy 2.

Looking more closely, I can see that all the expansion bays are full on the i3 desktop. While it's seemingly a good price, the inability to add any more drives makes it a pass for me.

Has anyone else noticed missing RAM from their HP Pavilion 500-054 Desktop, AMD A8-5500 Trinity Quad-Core 3.2GHz, 8GB DDR3, 1.5TB SATA, USB 3.0, 802.11n, Win 8?

I'm missing 4 GB and have contacted Woot Support.

Just curious, have you looked inside the computer to see if one or two of the memory sticks came loose in shipping? Wouldn't hurt to reseat them.

Also, your computer has an HP warranty. They will be able to take care of you better than our CS can as they will have the parts to send you if needed.
