Top HP Desktop Computers with Windows 7

by Dev Duff on August 3, 2010

I’m a Windows 7 fan, I love it! It is fast, reliable and easy to work. The time when Microsoft announced they were releasing Windows 7, I had decided to buy a new desktop computer with Windows 7 on it. Well, let’s just imagine, “how about a HP desktop computer with Windows 7 operating system”?

Why I say HP desktop computer? Why not a desktop from Dell, Lenovo, Gateway, etc.? Because I LOVE HP computers! I have been a computer user and a computer troubleshooter for over 10 years and all I have learned these years is that the HP computers supersede over other brands. If you want a reliable computer with all the necessary modern gadgets and goodies, HP is the best brand to go with. So when I decided to buy a new desktop computer, I prepared a specification chart. I began my search at the HP website and whenever I found a computer that met my needs listed on the specification chart, I added the computer to my selection list.

HP and Windows 7 are my ideal choices in terms of Technology and Operating System. Windows 7 is the smoothest OS i’ve come across and just love the service of HP. Am planning to buy a desktop computer for my brother (HP). Really like HP Pavilion All-in-One MS230z, as am a budget-friendly guy!

I agree, HP’s All-in-One line is good choice if you want multi-functional device and you are on budget. But if you need really good performance computer, all-in-one is not the way to go.

Wow, its incredible how so many laptops are now touch screen, I have not tried those. I do have an Ipad but its quite different from a computer. I deff think the Hp Pavilion Elite would be the best one for Windows. Have u bought any of those yet?
