Rated 3 out of 5 by Riverine from Included keyboard was broken. Frustrated!! I can't even review the PC because I can't get into it as my windows Password requires a key that will not work on the included keyboard. Absolutely pathetic QC that they don't check all keys on a keyboard work, and the quality of the keyboard is pretty low to begin with. For a high-end PC like this, I expect something of quality in the box OR NOTHING. That way I know I need 3rd party accessories instead of including these kiddy peripherals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from An honest, non-paid review. Great upgrade from the laptop I was using. I still want to expand it with a better graphics card, but can do that with this machine. It is much faster, and much more reliable, and I feel more secure with a direct connection as opposed to wireless. I guess it all depends on where you are coming from when you buy this item. For me it was a huge step up, and I'm glad I did. And I still have room for expansion. No-one should give 5 stars to any review, because tech changes fast. If that were not true, I would have given 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from capable and high quality tools I am preparing and purposing my new workstation for my digital media library projects at home and church. I am a HP family advocate and HP life customer. initially, was surprised wireless technology wasn't pre-installed and included with workstations. missed that detail in the fine print, which set me back a couple weeks. but now, with that issue fixed thanks to the HP customer support community, me, HP, and partners are slowly moving-in together. best part? HP production operations and support community. I feel like we are in this together. HP makes the research, development, and support tools/apps available to me to find answers and resolve issues quickly. ordering and purchasing from the online store was a good experience too. I love seeing my options organized, cataloged, and searchable. I can tell HP leaders are doing internal operations right and prioritizing their internal capabilities for quality and delivery, because externally, I was able to get my workstation setup quickly. great work, HP!

does this have wifi?

Asked by: Andrek29
This specific version of this unit does not come with a Wi-Fi network card and would require an ethernet connection if you want to connect to the internet. You can look into adding an internal network card or using an external Wi-Fi network adapter.
