Just got my old PC out of the storage unit. It was never used so the condition is impeccable. However being 2016-17 model it's too weak for modern day demands (CRAZY it's only 3 y.o. and it's too old!). Love the size and the screen 27" though.
Current specs are:
System board: ID 81B7
System Board: PFPQPOA8J34OAU
Processor: i5-6400T CPU @ 2,20 Ghz
RAM: 8.00 GB DDR 2133 Mhz Single Channel
So I just want to know if there's a point to spend money on upgrading all the things to get it up to speed (I build websites and work with video editing software e.g. Davinci Resolve so need a decent machine), or I am better off use it as a TV - dust collector and buy brand new All in one desk top?
you said up to speed, so what is slow? just internet or local apps slow is control panel slow?
does PC have SSD, if no , get one , install it , 8gb ram is plenty. It sure is no gaming or video rendering machine or CAD/CAM /CAE box. it is just a home PC, use it and be happy if one thing is slow what is slow.
PAVILION ALL-IN-ONE 27aA050a ( can not find this PC googling, ?) typo? is first "a" really and x?
the xa has M.2 ssd boot drive what is wrong with that, nothing.
