23″ HP 23-R010 23 AIO Desktop via Amazon
HP 23-R010 is a 23 inch modern 2015 model All-in-One Desktop with a dual core Intel Pentium G3260T processor (3MB cache) at 2.9GHz speed, 4 GB PC3-10600 DDR3L SDRAM memory for sufficient performance when multitasking- smooth and efficient, a very large 1 TB SATA hard drive at faster 7200rpm rotating speed and Windows 8.1 operating system that you should upgrade to Windows 10 online for free. It would make a great family computer for home entertainment- videos, music, internet, light gaming and for performing your different daily work related tasks. It has a nice price tag, considering it is an AIO desktop with everything put into the great quality FHD screen as well as keyboard and mouse combo included.
23 inch non-touch diagonal widescreen Full HD LED-backlit display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution is quite easy on the eyes- great visuals with vivid colours and good contrast and Intel HD graphics with up to 1792MB memory as allocated by Windows OS is sufficient for daily media tasks but not for demanding games- you’ll be comfortable with older titles and this is not really promoted as a gaming PC anyway and the price tag is too low for one. HP AIO Desktop supports two displays and you can always add the second larger screen (your HDTV or another computer monitor through the HDMI connection), DTS Studio Sound and built-in stereo speakers offer great quality rich sound with dynamic nuances for the price level and it comes with a decent TrueVision HD webcam with built-in microphones to allow you to chat live problem-free on Skype with friends and family.
HP finish in natural silver All in One desktop looks sleek and modern and will help you avoid clutter on your desk, it weighs 18.8 pounds with measurements of 22.24 x 2.83 x 15.08 inches. Wired keyboard and mouse are somewhat basic and not very tactile and you can always swap them with more ergonomic and wireless keyboard and mouse set. It comes with Ultra Slim Fixed SuperMulti DVD Burner, 802.11bgn wireless featuring 2.4GHz 1×1 technology, Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to Bluetooth enabled printers, speakers and more, 10/100/1000 Base T Ethernet for wired internet access, 2 x USB 3.0 ports on the side and 3 x USB2.0 at the rear, an HDMI-out port to connect to larger screens, 3-in-1 Media Card Reader supporting SD, SDHC and SDXC to transfer your media files conveniently, Headphone in and Microphone in Combo Jack and an Expansion slot.
Conclusion: HP 23-R010 (L9K85AA#ABA) boots up very quickly in just half a minute from zero and the quite positive reviews for the new Windows 10 started appearing online even though it can take a little while to download so just be patient with that and you’re really going to enjoy it. HP Support Assistant ensures great self-help support as it is integrated into your computer and HP SimplePass lets you use just a single PIN or password to have access to all your accounts. 4GB memory is not a lot but quite sufficient for decent daily multitasking performance unless you’re an advanced user running several demanding tasks at once then you can expand it up to 16GB through its two DIMMs. As an Energy Star qualified unit it will be easy on your energy bills, Pentium G3260T processor has a TDP- Thermal Design Power of 35 watts and the Passmark benchmark score on the day of this review is 2264 which makes it a mid-range processor: It is a dual core processor without turbo boost or hyper threading but the base speed is already fixed at 2.9GHz which is pretty high. It is not a touchscreen computer and this may be a problem for some, is very easy to set up and good for use at home for both entertainment and productivity. In the package you will see the AIO desktop itself, USB chiclet style wired keyboard and mouse combo, Power cord with 90W power supply and a User Manual and includes a 1 year limited hardware warranty by HP.
