The lower RAM one has an SSD, which is a game changer in terms of speeding up boot times and starting programs/apps. You still have a second spinning HD for mass storage. And it's easier to add a single stick of 8gb of RAM to the 8gb machine vs having to throw out a 4gb stick of RAM on the other machine.
.
Or if you're someone who wants more (or all) HDD space on an SSD and would have to replace the SSD anyways, the 12GB RAM option would seem to make more sense.

Is the included 128GB SSD an m.2 PCI-E?

Which one? The HP Pavilion 590-p0036? I think only the 590-p0066 has the i5-8400.

Yes I went to the store and asked they said both models are i5 8400T, clocked around 1.8 ghz , not too great for gaming, its a low power (35 watt tdp)

The specs clearly say 8400 not 8400T. Sounds like you got had/upsold at the store. It's 2.8 GHz.

[Update: seems it's only online that is an issue, you can find it locally it can still be ordered]

I ordered online a couple of days ago, today I received the following email, too bad seemed like a decent machine once an SSD is put in it:

Does the p0066 have an M2 slot or had expansion for an SSD drive? 128gb seems a bit small for OS and programs.
It has an unpopulated M.2 SSD (type 2280) slot, not the newer NVMe slot, but at least it has that. The p0066 does not come with 128gb drive, it has one drive, a 1TB hard disk. All the spec are on the HP website.

9th gen but similar specs otherwise. If you consider the Rakuten cash back into the price it's cheaper as well ($449-$157=$292)

I placed a order for the HP 590-p0036 went to pick up to my local staples and they shipped me the wrong desktop instead I got the HP 590-p0066. Customer service offer me 50 dollars off for the price difference on each machines. I took it since they don't have anymore inventory of the desktop I ordered.

After considerable difficulty, I did manage to get the deal (multiple orders, several phone calls, etc - it was a real hassle). Unfortunately, I was still in for one more surprise.

I noticed a slight rattle when carrying the box and didn't think too much of it. When I unboxed and picked up the computer itself, I heard a loud clunk. Not good. I immediately opened the case and found the large CPU heat sink/fan assembly unattached and rolling around inside (WTF! I've never seen this and have had my hands inside at least 100 systems over the years). Normally I would have returned it immediately, but there was no chance of finding another unit. I removed the CD/HDD assembly, cleaned up the thermal paste that had spread around the MB, visually checked for any damage such as bent caps etc, re-attached the heat sink, put everything back together and powered it up. Booted without issue. I then ran a 24 memory test and a multi hour CPU stress test while monitoring core temps...no issues. ​I'll do more testing before the return window expires, but it seems fine so far.

I don't know which I'm more surprised at, that someone failed to screw down the heat sink properly (a major assembly defect) or that after having the heat sink roll around on top of the motherboard that the thing still seems to work.

If you purchased one of these, you might want to check that all the screws are tight.

Has anyone gotten their order yet? Mine shipped on Nov 30 and was supposed to come this past Wed but seems there was some delay at UPS and now it just says to "check back later". I guess this is just the typical BF order backup?

I got mine set up today. Warranty coverage started April 2019 and ends April 2020 and shows 4 months remaining.

Thinking this is not a new unit.

Anybody else have anything weird go on?

You can get a rough idea of when your unit was manufactured based on the HP serial number. First 3 give info about where the unit was made (e.g. 2M0 implies Mexico - first 2 letters - plant location 0. Next 3 are the year and week in the year (e.g. 914 is 2019 week 14 - first week of April). The remaining digits can be a sequence number and/or options the unit has.

I think what HP does if a unit hasn't been registered after some time, they start the warranty clock with the assumption that the user didn't bother to register the unit. However, if you purchase the unit after the clock has started, once you register it, the clock should get reset.

Thanks for the details. I'm looking at 920 as the year/week so that doesn't quite line up. Looks like I have a chat ahead of me.

A bit more info for you. I got one of these on Black Friday (actually got the p0036, but essentially the same as far as this issue goes). The warranty on the HP site before I powered the unit on (checked it with the serial number using another computer) showed the warranty starting last June and so had about 6 months left. Yesterday I unpacked and powered on the unit - this sets a permanent Born on Date in the BIOS which you can see and it was set to 12/8/2019. During the startup it connected to HP.

Today on the HP website, or using the HP Support Assistant, the warranty now shows it ending in 1 year on 12/7/2020.
