A simple, reliable Win 7 system 11/02/2013
This review is from: HP Desktop PC Business Desktop 3500 (D8C46UT#ABA) Intel Core i5 3470 (3.20 GHz) 4 GB DDR3 500 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (available through downgrade rights from Windows 8 Pro)
Was looking for a simple, reliable 64 bit Win 7 system. Most of what's on the market now is Win 8 and the wife needed a basic box for watching videos and doing some work at home. Did not think i7 was necessary and I was right... this i5 system is a solid choice for home and work use
There was some junkware that needed to be uninstalled. That amounted to much less than you usually see on a name brand PC though. I know they are being phased out but a parallel port would have been nice.
In an age where Dell is still churning out plastic junk (how is that company still in existence?!) it's nice to know you can get a great deal on a simple x64 win 7 system from HP.
