Thanks for posting
looking for a pc that would cope with 4k video editing , any suggestions
Nice PC but I don't think it's a solid state drive and the difference that will make is incredible. Difficult to upgrade to SSD for an average user as well.

I've looked at AIOs extensively over the last year for a relative, and they seem VERY reluctant to ship them with SSDs on the more affordable models despite the obvious advantages. Whereas almost all laptops these days come with SSDs. I just don't get it. (In the end I did find ONE but that was it...)

I don't know about this particular model but all the others I've looked into it's been difficult. Hence very hard to recommend this one without an SSD.

The difference between a SATA SSD and mechanical drive is not "incredible"
It's - Kinda noticeable... sometimes.

Most of the time you're not waiting on a drive working you're waiting on CPU working.

With a brand new HDD I could maybe agree. But the number of PCs I've saved from the dump by installing an SSD is testament to the performance gain. The saving in boot up time alone makes it worth it...
Ryan, your mostly wrong, SSDs make an incredible difference to the performance of a PC if your used to HDD. Ok some HHDs are hybrid in that they often these days have a 2GB or so SSD type cache that helps the performance for frequently opened programs but its not the same as an SSD. Memory is the other big factor, 8GB is fine, 16GB better these days, 32GB overkill unless hard core gamer/video editing etc and thats not who this AIO is aimed at.

I have an older HP AIO (touchscreen, AMD A8) as our second family PC which I bought used although it was like new. The first thing I did was junk the 3.5" HD (sold it on ebay) and fitted a NVMe SSD disk and it helps although its not as fast as a good well built own build PC and think the chipset is at the cheaper end of the chipset available.

As for upgrading memory/SSD, then its a doable job for many if your not scared of screw drivers. Lots of video guides on yourtube but in essence there are usually 2 half tun screws at the bottom of the main screens facia hidden under small white grommits. After removing the stand (2 or 4 screws) turn those 1/2 screws then you have to prise the rest of the front cover (facia) off. Once inside there's going to be more screws to remove the metal cover of the main motherboard, its fairly easy to work out which to remove. Then you have access to the memory (which will be like the smaller laptop memory modules and 2 slots, hopefully only one used for this PCs 8GB. Hard disk will be in another metal cage, easy to remove and best replaced with a NVMe SSD if the motherboard has an M.2 slot for one.

Value wise, £599 is fairly good for a neat good looking PC but it'd be worth taking out an extended warranty with HP (not currys) as if something goes wrong with a AIO (like a laptop) there's not much scope for swapping out the faulty part for replacement unless its memory or disk although LCD panels can be replaced for ~£100-150 cost price (ebay etc) if you have an accident.

Pretty basic question but looking to get this for my son. Just need it to be capable of playing WOW and some RPGs- capable enough?
