The keyboard is too small, so I used the one from the computer it replaced. The mouse is also small but functional. I will replace it shortly with a larger wireless.
I would have rated this computer 5 stars except for the keyboard and mouse.
As for upgrading, you are limited with this system. You can add another internal HDD or SSD as a second internal drive. There is one PCIE-16 slot so you can add a video card as long as its no more than about 6.8 inches long. You can’t put a longer video card in because there is a connector on the motherboard that blocks it and you will not want to be without what is connected there – all front ports. Its a motherboard design issue so even changing the case wouldn’t help. You will need to buy a new power supply to go with any new video card but that shouldn’t be a problem. This uses a pretty standard looking power supply about 5″ x 5.5″ x 3″.
So I’ve had this thing for a couple of months now and I can add some more info. It is really nice that it’s an i7 desktop cpu and has wifi and bluetooth. For me, it does a good job with 3d slicing software, some cad, photoshop, etc. as-is and I am getting a lot of use out of it. Ok, the nice ends. It is really bad in that every time the hard disk gets busy – internet browser loading, opening an app, saving a large file, unknown processes sending data or maybe antivirus scanning – whatever it is – if the HDD is busy, your mouse doesn’t work. This is with both the wired mouse and a wireless. I seems that the USB ports are subject to not taking input when the HDD is busy. Totally ridiculous that the main input device does not function properly. Also – I kept getting some HDD errors so I contacted tech support and they were very responsive but… they had me do a system restore and lose all of my data – emails, resumes, photos, music – all gone. Fortunately I had copies on my laptop but I lost a couple of days of installing, copying and configuring this thing.The front usb, sd, etc are all oriented vertical instead of horizontal and that makes them much harder to use because I am always sticking them in the wrong way. Also, only 1 front usb port. The DVD drive works fine but its vertical too – and flimsy. Because of the price I paid I am still not regretful of buying this thing but due to the stupid design decisions and the issue with the mouse I am lowering from 5 stars to 3.
The start up problem was caused by a software glitch with Microsoft with their updates clashing with Windows 10 updates (according to the HP tech). Hard to believe because my last HP had exactly the same problem after a few years of use and I had to toss it after spending days to fix the problem and even bringing in a computer technician to analyze it. I was told it was not worth it to try to fix it. To start off with a new HP and encounter the same problem as before tells me that it is a HP problem and I will be buying a different brand next
