Pros: It was cheap and still had internal DVD
Cons: HP is under the misguided impression people still use Windows. I own somewhere between half a dozen and a dozen machines. I keep one Windows partition around only because I haven't upgraded my glucose meter to a modern one with Linux software for data dumping. I keep that on whatever computer I'm using as my "travel" computer. This was to be my new "travel" computer but HP used ALL 4 primary partitions. This left me with the following options:
1) wipe the drive to install Mint 17
2) Nuke the recovery and HP tools partitions to install Linux
3) Use Virtualbox VM
I was pressed for time so I chose option 3. Even after upgrading to 500 Gig SSD and boosting RAM to 8Gig running inside of Virtualbox makes this machine run like a 286.
Other Thoughts: Cannot recommend this computer to anyone looking to use a modern OS unless they are willing to wipe it completely for installation.READ FULL REVIEW
