I'm not crazy about it. Google P7 1254 and sleep mode. Apparently there's a major conflict between the sleep mode and win7 so sometimes it won't "wake up". There is a support document at HP to help resolve this:

Resolving Problems with Sleep Mode (Windows 7) HP Pavilion p7-1254 Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

but hey, y'know?

I'd say it's as good as anything else you could buy in that low end, inexpensive price range.

All of it's components are designed for general purpose use, such as documents, web surfing, e-mail, etc. It's hardware components are all proprietary, so upgrading will provide few options if any.

It's basically designed as a throw away machine after a few years of use.

Think of it in terms of buying a new $13,000 car, vs. a $25,000 car. The $13k car has 4 wheels, and an engine, and will take you where you need to go, but is it anything like the $25k car?

Overall a nice computer


Pros:
-4 cores
-Good processor speed, 2.2 (2.5 on turbo)--some computers don't even have turbo so that's a plus

Cons:
-I don't like the hibernate and sleep mode, seems like it could easily become a hassle or problem

If you do purchase this computer make sure you get win8

Good luck!👍

Personally, I would never buy anything HP. I never had good luck with any of their products.

Old thread is old. Original post is a year old already and original poster never showed back up after the day he posted.
