This is a great system for those who need an inexpensive system with decent graphics. Basically, with AMD systems, you trade some CPU power for better integrated graphics. If you need a faster CPU, go with Intel Core i3/i5. If you need solid entry-level 3D graphics capability, choose AMD A8/A10.

In comparison to the recent Lenovo i5 deal, this PC has a slower processor but better integrated graphics, USB 3.0, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. If you were on the fence about the Lenovo thinking you needed an HD 6670, wireless connectivity and/or USB 3.0 ports in it, give this a try.

Just ignore the troll. Decent system. Will enable you to play light gaming and provide video acceleration for your internet videos. I was able to get an 5800k for 100 at ncix via their referrals programand a a 75board for 60ish. Idle if the locked cpu cares about memory speeds but might be worth it to buy your own ram if you game. I know it helped the 5800k in gaming benches.

You're right, it can be had less than $200, it's misleading. If you can't be bothered using search neither can I.

Another (albeit small) benefit is this has wireless capability built in. Lenovo didn't.
Thanks for pointing that out. I added this feature to the OP when I saw your response but did not have a chance to give you the kudos.

I stayed away from the Lenovo deal due to the lack of USB 3.0.
Yes, another feature that many people wished the Lenovo PC had.

I've got 30+ PCs built from scratch running here and I've had to return exactly two parts: Some Patriot memory and a crappy cheap generic PSU from Amazon. If you add incompetence into the mix it adds many more problems, the parts are generally fine.
leave this guy alone guys.. he needs a psychiatrist.

good for a real HTPC, if you encodes/rip

No HDMI port Frown
Quote from vincentjones View Post :
No HDMI.
It is sad that they left out this feature. I wonder if the DVI port outputs audio. If it does, then a $1 DVI-to-HDMI adapter will give you an HTPC-suitable HDMI port.

Reps to whoever reports on the presence/absence of audio in the DVI port.

I'm in the market for a computer. I've built plenty, but am going to get a Dell, Lenovo, HP, etc this time. A main concern of mine is how quiet it is. Can anyone here speak to the general level of fan/disk noise in these consumer grade boxes? I have a Dell Optiplex 980 next to me at work that is very quiet, so any comparisons to that machine would be great.

Also, about how frequently can I expect to see a really great Slickdeal on a low to mid range desktop? Once a month? Every two months? I'm not in a huge hurry to make this purchase.

So the days of FUD about AMD processors vs. Intel- software /instruction set compatibility, reliability, etc. - are long gone and it's just down to general and graphics computing performance?

i recently bought the hp p7-1414 for about $360 during BB's open box promo, to be used as our htpc with these specs [hp.com] and seeing that they have the same motherboard as the p7-1446s with these specs [hp.com], i say 'No' it does not have audio out on the DVI port. I have to use the spdif to connect to our audio receiver for now until i can upgrade and put in a dedicated video card.

no need to rep, just would like to contribute info.

In this particular case, it seems that it is the features that matter. The FP Lenovo i5 deal from a couple of weeks ago was well received by those who appreciated the Ivy Bridge 3rd-gen i5 power. Many, however, felt that i5 is not as important for an average user as a balance between processign power, graphics and connectivity.

This deal seems to have hit the cord with all those who stayed away from the Lenovo deal: It has the right mix of graphics, connectivity (USB 3.0 and Wi-Fi) and sufficient processing power. It is a great box in terms of "set it and forget it" for an average, non-builder/non-tinkerer user.

Integrated Graphics
*Integrated video is not available if a graphics card is installed.
Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards
Either integrated graphics or the PCI Express x16 slot are usable at one time; they are not usable concurrently

Well alright... then get a good video card if you are going to put one in there for anyone who is wondering Smilie

At least the equivalent of what is on the APU itself.

How does this compare against http://www.staples.com/HP-Pavilio...ze=certona ?

Is it worth $80 more?

If you're buying an APU and adding in a video card you are missing the point.

I guess. This things runs every productive application fast enough for joe bloe. It even runs Adobe Photoshop amazingly well for the price because of the onboard GPU (Photoshop uses the GPU to speed things up). I mean, how fast of a machine do you need for Office and Facebook?
