HP Pavilion Elite PC with Intel Core i5 3.2GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB Hard Drive, & Blu-ray

Osama bin Laden is dead! Oh yeah, this item can be used to read all about it on the web.


The first bin Laden-free woot!. Feels good. We deserve a wootoff! to celebrate!

OBL has left the building…

In for 1!

If only it were that easy…

This will play games.

Not Sandy Bridge; anyone else disappointed?

Happy Dance,
Happy Dance,

Osama bin Laden is burning IN HELL !

~ Oh and this i5 is sweet, but about $200 too high :frowning:

8gb ram. I’ll pass. Anything over 6 is wastefull and and with only a few weeks left in my life I don’t want to be wastefull.

As gamer who was in the hobby back when ATI was just coming out with the HD series and AGP still existed; how good is this in terms of being able to pimp out?

i.e. Is it good enough to game with out of the box and at a later date, be able to upgrade to game even better? (Will it be compatible with stuff for the next two years. ?)

If you buy it I hope you have better luck than I had. My HP hasn’t worked since day 1.
I am trying to get someone from HP to either give me my money back or come fix it. I will NEVER buy a HP Computer again.

This computer is amazing, and worth it, the crapware is low, norton is easy to remove, very fast, plays portal 2 really well

crysis and crysis 2 untested

This looks like a pretty sweet deal. Has the same specs as my ASUS down to the graphics card I put in myself (i5 650 3.2ghz, 8gb ram, hd5570 graphics card, TB HDD)but with the added bonus of built in wireless and a blu-ray for only ~$100 more. As for gaming I haven’t done to much but I can tell you this will run Crysis on all high (goes up to “very high”) settings. Where was this deal when I was shopping for a PC Woot? And with the 23’’ famous maker monitor, which I am also using, this looks like a nice moderately priced set up.

We know who you are, OSAMA BIN LADEN. We just know that you said that on May 1st, 2011, your life is going to end. And we don’t want to step on any toes or anything, but based on trends so far… well, we’ll just have to see, won’t we?

This comes with a 64-bit operating system, wich can use the 8GB of memory, BUT, it’s an i5 processor so you really wont feel the speed that the 8Gigs could give you if it was an i7.

That’s for HP Pavilion Elite HPE-500z series, and NOT for the HP HPE-240F.

Here’s the correct one:

Dealnews.com has this as a current low for this computer by $250ish. Bestbuy has a similar one, but refurb’d, Athlon X6, and no TV tuner for about the same after tax and shipping. I pulled the trigger on this instead.

Good deal, and the only HP I’ve ever owned broke when Diablo killed me; I punched it.

I can attest to their ridiculousness as far as making people pay for system restore discs. Cost me $20 way back when, even though they probably should have just been included. I’ll be putting a clean install of 7 Ultimate on this guy. Can’t wait :slight_smile:

Previous Woot

A 300 watt power supply is a little on the lite side, especially if you plan on any upgrades (video card). Buy this, get yourself a good 600 watt supply and have happy computing for years to come.
