Some info on the 730a http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/2387/geforce-gt-730a.html the specs on the gpu look right except for the claimed release date of 1970… considering nvidia didn’t even exist till 93. Don’t expect to be doing any gaming on this thing. Resolution might be a deal breaker I know it would be for me if I wanted an AIO. You want to see 2560 by 1440 at least for this screen size not 1080p.
So I have resisted the “all in one” computer concept for the longest time… but… maybe they are right for me. How do they hold up for light gaming?
Man, I really want one of these, but unfortunately I really need a video output option for what I’m doing. After doing a little digging (http://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/m/review-hp-envy-recline-27-touchsmart-aio-bringing-touch-closer-you), it appears the HDMI port it has is actually an input, not an output like I presumed. :-/
Overall though, HardwareZone did a great review. I encourage everyone to check it out!
So you want to game on this machine, I have one question do you hate yourself? The gpu in this thing is a joke its garbage. If you really want an AIO that can do 3d gaming http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883152068&cm_re=MSI_AIO--83-152-068--Product is a much better option just keep in mind your paying though the nose for what amounts to a gaming laptop that sits in one spot all the time. For comparison this is what you can get for a grand via the diy destop route http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/. You could also get a gaming notebook http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834313740&cm_re=lenovo_y510p--34-313-740--Product
Edit: it should be noted that I went for something roughly comparable to the AIO here with that parts list I wouldn’t recommend a 27 inch 1080p monitor I’d rather see a cheaper 23 or 24 inch monitor used with the priced difference put towards a 250gb ssd.
Thank you very much. I was very skeptical that an all in one would be ok for light to mid gaming, and it seems that I was not terribly wrong.

Any warranty info available on this pc being reconditioned? Just the 90 day?
It’s factory reconditioned.
A “factory reconditioned” item was returned, inspected, and restored to fully working condition by the original manufacturer or a certified partner. And the original manufacturer stands behind it with a warranty. It’s as close to new as you can get without technically being “new”.
What about the “External USB SuperMulti DVD±RW” listed in the specs, any images of that (slim, full size, etc)?
We did not get a sample of this unit so unfortunately, we don’t have that info.
A bit pricy as equipped - IMHO
What good does the 16g SSD actually do? I could see a 64g SSD for the OS and a large HDD for data.
