what is the size of the memory?
The specs says it has an optical drive. Where is it placed? Is the front a solid panel or is it a door?
Usually medium but sometimes large depending on how it fits…
8 for the cheaper one and 16 on the big dog
Congrats to those who grabbed the i7 in time. Fantastic deal.
I bought a slightly higher spec’d version from Woot a few months ago, and it’s been a pretty solid performer so far.
These HP systems have been available through Woot via various deals, and as has been mentioned in some of those deals, these seem to have been set up for the Canadian market, but aside from it defaulting to Canada during the initial settings (which only requires changing it to the US), and a slightly different keyboard layout, it’s worked fine for me in the US.
Killer deal for i7-7700 and GTX 1070. Those parts alone are about $700.
It is definitely pretty good. I just was in the market for that class or slightly above. 16 gig ram and a GTX 1070 video card was going for 1100-1500 all day long
Heck the GTX 1070 alone is pushing 500 bucks retail.
As good as the higher speced model is, the lower one seems a bit meh. GTX 1060 card is basic entry level if you want to try VR
I mean for 150 bucks you are losing:
8 gig of RAM
i5 instead of an i7
GTX 1060 instead of the GTX 1070 , which is retail a 200 dollar difference alone.
Granted, it might run rings around your current rig and and I am sure some people will be very very happy with it.
How easy would it be, if even possible, to replace the DVD drive with a Blu-ray drive?
Does anyone know if there are any open PCIe slots?
Additionally, how many 3.5" bays is in this? I would want to upgrade with an SSD i’m thinking and place my current 2TB HDD in as well.
I’m not staff, but a quick search on HP’s support site revealed this guide:
You’re on your own in doing any of this, of course. Unless you have a cat … then they’ll “help”.
