"with 1366 x 768 resolution showcases movies and games in stunning clarity"

Not if you’re a pixel whore like me- there’s nothing stunning about 1366x768 unless it’s a display on a smart watch.

Not a pixel whore, myself, so that’s not the issue.

My issue is with “Genuine Windows 8.1”. No interest in Windows 8. Deal breaker.

I’m not a fan of windows 8.1, but really below the metrosexual tile theme is a reworked W7 with better memory and resource utilization {url]http://www.askvg.com/comparison-between-windows-7-and-windows-8-memory-management-system/.

I use classic shell http://www.classicshell.net/ it’s free, and can make W8 seem just like W7.You can every make it skip the metrosexual tiles on boot.

The only thing I truly miss about W7 is that W8 does not have mediacenter, which some people may not even miss- but I miss it. The legitimate separate addon mediacenter to W8 is like $100.

The last point is that w7 AND w8 will be getting a free upgrade to Windows 10 when it releases

Even if the interface is annoying like the W8 metrosexula tiles, you can still elect to use classic shell, which will still give you the old desktop experience.

Another warning-- HP and Windows 8 are incredibly intertwined with the BIOS. If you have plans to revert this unit back to Windows 7, you’ll probably opt to drive a rusted railroad spike through your brain before you’re successful at it.

Suggest you either live with Windows 8 or classic shell the bitch. Or avoid HPs altogether, as I’ve seriously begun considering due to this practice.

Three strikes.

  1. HP

  2. AMD

  3. Refurb

I purchased this computer a few weeks ago, but when I try to watch any videos, all I get is a green screen, it was working fine when I purchased it! Anyone know how to correct this issue?

I found this? You have to read through it.
