i was at the staples store earlier today in Mira Loma, CA and they had an HP desktop HP Pavilion 510-p026 (the model # is V8P11AA#ABA ) with I5 processor 12GB memory, 1TB HDD and intel 530 graphics windows 10 on sale for $429, also they had $70 off if you purchase hp office jet 4650 (which is $99 dollars)

i thought the specs and the price seemed pretty good, i tried to look on their website to see if they have more details on the system but could not find it listed on the desktop computers, although when i looked at their online ad it was there so YMMV
here is a link to the ad and its about halfway down the page:
http://weeklyad.staples.com/Stapl...ry/5202138

also another thing, when i visited their website there was a popup that said if you join their mailing list you'll get $10 off $50, just another thing to concider!
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I gave up in buying PCS from staples. Before it was the convenience factor. Then the floor model was on sale 400 bucks and they gave me a hard time and didn't want to sell it. I'm like why the fark do you have a sign saying the price and you refuse to sell it. Since then I pretty much say fark all their dated tech. Go balls out and build it yourself. Yeah it's annoying time wasting but in the end you gave staples the middle finger Smilie and upon speccing their hps they are still dated with very minimal room for upgrades. They use low quality Asus boards oem. Or some shit that doesn't exist or the damn ram slots die off and corrupt 1 at a time.

Well the PC is HP brand and not staples brand, this is not one of the mini cases so you'll have room if you wanted to install a good video card and make it a gaming pc (probebly will need to upgrade the power supply also)

Concidering the CPU alone cost ~$180, windows 10 cost $100, HDD ~$50, 12GB memory is about $50 (and not to ad the cost of case +ps +CD drive + motherboard) any similar system build it yourself system is going to be a lot more expensive, you would still be better off buying this and upgrading the PS and Graphic cards, and also adding the all in one printer for $30 extra is also pretty nice deal for people who need it.

Each person is entiled to his own opinion, i just don't see many i5 12GB systems for the low $400.

HP pays OEM prices; not wholesale, not retail. OEM prices are much lower as they are purchased in bulk and they have no warranty themselves as they are warrantied by HP. One would do better, quality wise, to build their own. As to the printer, it was $20 during the summer.

Wrong! The PC's they sell regardless who makes them are dated. And crippled. I upgraded the video card and ram on one. But then the ram kept going out on me. So I had a 16gb system now it's 4. Overtime ram slots died. Then the video card I got was okay but the board was custom and to find a 4 slot mini it that would line up the case would be challenging. I'm the end fark staples and the computers they sell. A board and cpu can be had for 50-500 depending how big you go. Combo deals do exist from Newegg microcenter and fryz. Having a decent pc is fair game.

true that hp pays lower prices since they are wholesaler, but as stated above thats why it would be cheaper than building the system yourself, also they warranty the system for 1 year. again building similar system would require more time and money and knowledge, plus for many people like me who don't care much about gaming this is a great prebuilt system for the price.

this is not a deal for a custom pc, its a deal for an HP desktop, as there are no other deals out there with 6th generation I5 and similar specs for less than $500. sure you can build a nice custom gaming system for $800 but that's irrelevant to this post as this is not a post about buying seperate components and building your own desktop

your comment makes no sense whatsoever, you are saying the computers they sell are "outdated and crippled" based on what? you bought 1 defective mini case pc and now all the computers are outdated, 6th generation i5 processor is not outdated, and the processor is made by intel not by hp or staples, the processor ALONE sells for $189 on newegg, thats not including a motherboard or anything else:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...-_-Product

you cannot find a similar cpu for $50 and if you do please feel free to post it here, I'm sure there are tons of people who would love to get their hands on that processor for $50.

the cheapest combo from newegg containing just he processors above 1TB hd 8GB memory and mother board cost $355 and thats not including the case, Powersupply , cd drive, operating system (windows 10 oem is $99), and an additional 4GB memory, plus the time and effort to assemble it.

so a complete similar combo from newegg with identical specs using the cheapest parts available cost $509

Like I said the deal you posted isn't hot. A psu by corsair is $20 AR I have 5 of them. Please argue with me about that. Then have you ever gone to a frys or microcenter? Your in the 909 there's a frys somewhere in between slightly. Microcenter is in Tustin. But they have combo deals. And as for ram 16gb for 50 is the norm. I used to like hp computers but like I said staples and the PCS they sell can go fark themselves. If you wanna browse SD Facebook twitter and YouTube yeah that pc will be fine. Want to play games and do something worth while it's going to cost you. Forget the CD drive lmao CD drive wow let me go find some cds oh wait I tossed them out with the floppies. As for the 1tb ooh my 7200rpm
is too cool for the ssd drive that went on sale. Next sales pitch how fast is windows booting up after your bloat ware is loaded. Don't forget to Defrag and clean your cds. Meanwhile a USB 3 drive paired with a ssd = minutes of fun.

What part of the CPU ALONE cost $180 do you not understand, want me to break it down to you part by part? well here is a quick estimate

CPU: $185
Motherboard: ~$40-$50 for a really cheap one
Memory 12GB: $40
Windows 10: $100
HDD: $50
Case: $25
PSU: $25
CD drive: ~$30

=$495 for an identical system using the cheapest parts available so about ~75$ off

sure you can get a 1 TB SSD but that costs an additional $150, so the system setup that you listed above with the ssd and without the cd drive would cost more than $600 without including a graphics card.

so yeah i think $419 for this system setup with no rebates is a good deal, sure you can get a better gaming system or build one yourself, but thats irrelevelant because the cost is going to be much higher

Look through the specifications. It's all junk.
http://support.hp.com/us-en/produ.../c05124731

Your stuck on a processor that is nearly a year old. It came out on 9/1/2015

not really, specification is pretty descent for the price, sure you can get much better system if you spend more but the specifications are actually pretty good for the price you are paying.

I dont see any deals with similar systems for similar price range, and I'm not stuck on the CPU I'm stating that the CPU cost alone is about half of the whole system cost.

Its all relative to cost. for this price range its hard to find a better system with similar processors and specs.
