Well, it doesn't suck like a Dyson, but it shows up on woot almost as often.

Is the only difference between this one and the last one 3x4GB instead of just 2x4GB+2GB RAM?

Other than the video card & power supply lacking, anyone have issues good or bad with this machine?

I've bought a similar one about 6 months ago from Moofi. I've done the research to see if I needed to update anything to preserve the machine when it arrives as is. In other words, I have this Machine and if I'm happy with it, should I still update the hardware in anyway to make sure it keeps working as is. In short response is 'no'. The components work fine w/o any upgrades. The power supply looks wanting at a glance, and if you need to update something, you may need a bigger one... however it's fine as is. The video card is on the shallow end of the mid range cards out there but still plays League of Legends on full graphics and Left for Dead 2 w/ problems. All in all, I'm happy with my purchase. I use it regularly and do a poor job of turning it off after every use. With it left on it still runs like a champ.

Good. Use your aggressive feelings boy. Let the HP H8 flow through you.

I bought this exact machine about 2 months ago on woot. I love it. It's so fast. It has two 4gb and two 2gb ram sticks. For xmas I'm upgrading the gpu to the gtx 670 and the power supply to a 620 watt. I was a little worried about how close the ram was to the pci slot. But to make sure, I put my roommate's gtx 660 in to make sure there was room for it, which there is but it barely fit. It's so snug that if you put a bigger video card in, you won't be able to release the ram to take it out without first taking out the gpu.

You really only need to upgrade this machine if you plan on gaming and want to be able to play at a super high resolution with high graphics detail. Otherwise it is perfect.

This exact machine (same part number even) is on the shelves at my local Sam's Club for $899.99. (Not a refurb at Sam's.)

@no1bitwdlr: So $899 @ Sams new, $659 here, refurb.
Or $240 savings over new. Maybe Sams is overpriced?
Or this is a deal with +25% savings.

My luck with HP refurbs from Woot has been good and good values.
Won't touch an HP laptop if you paid me, but the desktop systems are solid values.

@csublime: The max memory Windows 7 Home Premium can handle is 16GB. The motherboard seems to be limited to 16GB as well.

@csublime: As a side note, Windows 7 Home Basic is 8GB.

@nb109: thanks that was what I was looking for, wasn't sure if there was a motherboard limit or they just spec'd it that way because of the win7home
