Pavilion 27-xa0125qe
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a pavilion 23 that is crashing every few minutes so I am buying a new computer - want to take advantage of HP sale so for home use - not gaming - I am looking at the Pavilion 27-za0125qe and the HP ProOne 600 G4 (that says business use) - comparison as well as I can understand  it - 27*** has a better processor, larger screen, more memory and does not come with a bunch of software that i know nothing about or a touch screen  - beyond that the technical specs are greek to me. Which one should I buy?

let's look at it this way, if you were to manually install just windows on the system without any other software the difference between the two systems becomes just hardware WARRANTY AND SUPPORT

 

consumer systems usually have a shorter warranty (1 year vs 3/5 for business), and the level/type of support can be quite different, a business system will usually be  a local rep who actually knows the hardware vs someone reading from a script who is based who knows where

 

regardless, consider carefully how long you plan on keeping a system and what it's expansion/upgrade capabilities are

 

AIO and SFF systems while nice,.. have limited upgrade paths compared to a normal desktop/tower system and as such are not good long term systems in most usage cases where the user plans on keeping it for 5 or more years

Hi

Hopefully no-one will specify what you spend your money on.

 

Your personal needs and choice are what matters.

Faster CPU and memory / HDD upgradeability may be important in the longer term.

 

 

Maybe if you current needs are simple then take the uncomplicated one.

 

These may be relevant...
