Have not heard anything my friend. I continue to search for answers on this issue but to know avail nothing. I personally think these are boat anchors. I will personally build my next one by scratch and not even entertain HP. My next I will kick off with nothing but top shelf equipment. An SSD drive for the operating system and a second SSD for my data. I have also thought about going to the dark side. Yes a MAC pro. I'm pretty much done with HP. I just CTO a laptop for my stepdad. The laptop is faster then this.
I agree. Will use my warranty when able and swap to something else on the next go.
Potentially a Mac. On the fence.
Most likely, I will build a PC from scratch as you mentioned. Liquid cooling. Sound proof case. Hopefully next generation i7 or better (and 32GB high-end memory). Yup, 2 humongous SSDs and a 6 or 8 TB SATA Hard Drive back up, as nec. 1 Blu Ray drive and 1 DVD dual layer drive. Top of the line Wi-Fi adapter and a Bluetooth adapter to boot! And about 10 or 12 USB 3.0 ports or next generation USB, which I have heard is just around the corner. Can't wait! No JUNK software... Bloatware, I believe is what they call it. None of it!
Hear that #HP?!
QUALITY internal products to CREATE AN OVERALL PRODUCT for the MASSES! How hard can it be? So the CEO doesn't get a 30 million dollar bonus at the end of the year... MAYBE, JUST MAYBE THE CEO LISTENS TO ITS CUSTOMERS AND MAKES MORE MONEY! HA! Imagine the possibilities.
Oh well Bones, I guess I'm off the proverbial soap box. Or "common sense box" in this case! 🙂
Take it easy and good luck!
P.S. I hope someone at #HP does eventually get around to reading this thread before the company flounders.
I was contacted by #HP and warned (harassed) about what I was saying within the forum... Instead of trying to assist us in figuring out why at least 3 people have the exact same problem... I.e. Horrifically slow computers without any logical reason. Fact. I wish #HP would just help us. This is so frustrating especially based on the high cost.
