21.5 inch HP V8N96 22-b016 All in One Full HD Desktop 

HP V8N96 All-in-One Desktop 21.5 Inch Full HD

White HP V8N96 (22-b016) is the latest 2016 release, budget friendly All-in-one (AIO) 21.5 inch non-touch desktop computer with a Full HD display, a quad-core Intel Pentium processor, large storage size and good connectivity for entertainment and work at home- doing uni assignments, internet browsing, video watching and other daily tasks of all your family. CPU used on this AIO desktop is a 2016 release Pentium J3710 (2MB L2 cache) with a benchmark score of 2238 for entry-level computers with four cores at 1.6GHz- 2.64GHz speeds with Burst and no hyperthreading, 4GB DDR3L SDRAM at 1600MHz (4GB x 1) that would be just enough for smooth daily multitasking and supports up to 8GB if you need more memory, 1TB SATA HDD at 7200rpm spindle speed that is better than the standard 5400rpm but not nearly as snappy as an SSD and the usual 64-bit Windows 10 Home operating system. You have an Ultra Slim-tray SuperMulti DVD Burner on the right-hand side, 802.11bgn (1×1) wireless, Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to Bluetooth-enabled peripherals wirelessly, an HDMI output that lets you hook up a second display, 2 x USB 3.0 ports and  2 x USB 2.0 ports.

HP V8N96 All-in-One Desktop 21.5 inch FHD

21.5 inch WLED-backlit diagonal widescreen FHD IPS display has 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution for very crisp and clear images with decent contrast, has up to 178-degree viewing angles but is not touch enabled if you prefer a touchscreen desktop. The low end integrated Intel HD 405 graphics is basic for the usual multimedia activities and certainly not for gaming- just the older and less demanding games. HP webcam with two array digital microphones on top of the screen bezel is good quality and the sound is provided by DTS Studio Sound through built-in speakers underneath the display. Everything is on the screen of HP 22-b016, so there is not a separate computer case and comes with a white wired USB keyboard with volume control and a wired optical mouse with a modern design. Thermal Design Power is only 6.5 watts which will help with reduced power usage (will be easy on your energy bills) and the Passmark benchmark score of 2238 as of today will give you adequate performance overall for your day-to-day tasks but this is no powerhouse so don’t expect to run very demanding software or games. White HP AIO Desktop has a beautiful design, weighs 12 pounds and measures 22.5 x 14 x 3 inches, is lightweight and has a great space saving design to avoid clutter on your desk with not many cables except for mouse and keyboard and power cord and you can always get a wireless keyboard and wireless mouse. This is a good value All-in-One overall, considering AIOs cost more for the design and as you will not be paying extra for a monitor.
