    "HP Pavilion 570-p030 is a solid desktop pc and it is maybe good for an office where you will only be checking email or using documents. The graphics card it comes with is TERRIBLE though! Most games were literally unplayable and could barely get 20 fps. The tower is also not ventilated very well and its kind of ugly. I'd find another computer if you plan on using it for more than basic tasks."

    "I wouldn't recommend this laptop for programming as it is more catered to laptop gaming and has many things a programmer doesn't need. Also, it features last generations i7 so I couldn't consider it the best even though it would perform quite nicely. There are many other options out there that will fit better because I doubt this laptop has great battery life."

    "I would not say this is excellent for programming, but it is an all inclusive PC. What makes this nice is the fact that its an all in one. No wondering where things do, or what to do, or where to put it. This thing you just sit down, turn on, and you are good to go!"
