I didn't know that they still made 5400 RPM hard drives for desktop computers! They save $10 by using a slow HD?

Looks like an error on their page. Scroll down & it shows it's a 7200. I hit HP's website & it confirms that it is 7200 also. Seems like a decent deal for a basic desktop.

Another discrepancy is that HP's website says the memory is not expandable, but Staples' website is correct: It is indeed expandable.

I bought this last month at the same price and have been happy so far. I have not added a discrete GPU yet and managed the low PSU, but with an m.2 NVMe SSD running a clean Windows 10 installation it's super fast and quiet and in a very small form factor too. You can fit a low profile 2 slot passive cooled card because the slot is not at the very bottom of the motherboard.

Its 2.5" bc of the form factor.

Nice post OP. It's also eligible for the Visa Checkout promo, discussed in the following thread, so the price drops to $374.99.
