A Beautiful Home Computer to Elevate your Work Experience.
8 November 2018
Alright, so this is an initial expression of HP All in one C0010in, will update with performance and ownership review after a month of usage.
So, I bought this PC for simple "Home Usage" and mainly this computer will be used by my dad, so the requirements were quite basic "Surfing the Internet", "Video Calls", "Viewing Reports and PDF files", "emails", "Documentation" and at times for "Basic Entertainment like Song, Movies, etc."
Deal and Delivery experience :
Bought it in Amazon Great Indian Diwali Sale combined with Amazon Lighting Deal for Rs.32999 with Rs.1000 cashback in Amazon Pay wallet.
The best deal ever possible...!!!!
Rs.33000 for this Beautiful machine.. I am SOLD.
Delivery : Appario Retail dispatched it within 3 hours (Big shout out for doing such commendable job in Diwali Rush)
Nicely and securely packed.
Reached my home in 60 hours.
Amazon Transportation Services doing the job very well.. asked for delivery time before sending the delivery guy.
5 Stars to delivery and Seller.
This is a HP All in One.. WHY I CAN'T FIND IT ON HP Website ? So Here's the twist.. This model was released in APRIL, 2018 and after 6 months of regular shelf life (as it is done by all Computer Manufacturers) it was replaced by "IL" series.. don't know why.... but IL looks cheap in comparison to this and have less accessibility features like wireless mouse and keyboard. Maybe HP is trying to increase its profit margin after success of their All in One PCs or maybe due to increase of taxes.. now similar looking product (the one which look like mine) sells for around 42K(though its an i3 7th gen) and in black.
Man..!! you'll love it, Anyone who'll see this PC, tell them that it costs around 60K they'll believe you, enough said.
The aesthetics are awesome white chassis on Brushed Aluminium stand. Thin border, Sexy little webcam on top and nice speaker grill on bottom shows the purpose of this sexy machine. Combined with no wires and clutter free experience you'll fall in love with it. The white, sexy, durable and slim keyboard & mouse are icing to this cake.
I feel like I've extracted 80% of my money just by looking at it.
Processor : Intel Pentium Silver J5005
So yeah you might be thinking that this is just a mobile computing chip how it can manage to do task a PC should do? So don't get confused at all this is J5005, 1.5Ghz on Gemini Lake Architecture which have 4 threads and 4 cores with Burst clocking of 2.8 Ghz.. so it'll easily manage your daily tasks without any noticeable lag.
I did little multitasking with 8 tabs on roll and transitions were very smooth.
Integrated Intel 605 HD Graphics insures that the display remains FHD (1080p) all the time without images being noisy and maintaining the fluidity of the display.
"IT'LL DEFINITELY LAG IF YOU GONNA DO HEAVY GAMING/INTENSE GRAPHIC AND VIDEO EDITING ON IT, BUT FOR EVERYTHING ELSE.. IT'LL MANAGE IT EASILY"
Note - I use it as my home PC for general everyday computing, only. So all my observations are based on this.
OPERATING SYSTEM & BUNDLED SOFTWARES :
Windows 10 Home 64 bit. Cortana will welcome you, follow this Jarvis doppelganger and you'll first boot your PC with breeze. Being released in April 2018, you'll get February 2018 patch.. so you'll have to update it to recent patch. (Happens Automatically) Will consume around 3 GB data and after downloading the update will take around 2-3 hours on your next restart to install.. So do it when you've ample time and don't switch it off while doing so.
Office 2016 edition is available for free (you'll have to activate it.. just open any office application like Word, and follow on screen instructions). You can opt for 2019 edition during activation, but it isn't free. Better Stick with 2016 edition for now.
Cyber link media player by HP. Nice one stop media player for pictures, videos, music and everything. (You'll love how it sort photos on a calendar)
Windows Market Store : your regular play store doppelganger.. download any software you like.
Dolby DTS Sound Configuration
and many more.
RAM : 4GB DDR4 (enough for basic and daily usage) 1.5 GB is usually engaged for system processes.. 2.5GB is mostly free.
Storage : 1TB (915GB available after windows and Recovery partition) Not a SSD, but its fast. No complaints.
Display : 1920x1080 Full HD Display with minimal borders looks surreal. Blacks are deep and contrast ratios are at 99.7. combined with border less chassis this will definitely elevate your working experience.
Connectivity and Extension : Wi-Fi, Bluetooth(Patches do update itself for high speed transfer),Wireless Home networking over Home server, Networking Port, 2x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.0, HDMI out, Power In, Card Reader(in bottom of screen), Lock Connector and Headphones out (3.5mm).
Optical Disk Drive: Rare in All in One these days
Note - 1 USB port will be used constantly by Mouse and keyboard signal receiver.. so consider 3 USB on board.
Speakers : 2W inbuilt speakers.. but don't judge them by power output. does a decent job with Altec Lansing, HP DTS and Dolby optimization. No Deep Bass.. but yeah wayyy better than Laptop speakers.
Camera: I am unable to figure out the configuration, but works on 16:9, 480p.. I Suppose.. Have a cool slider on top, to close it when you want... Doubly checking your privacy.
Mouse and Keyboard : Damnnn... I love them.. The keyboard is in white metal casing, chiclet keyboard, slim and uber sexy. it's heavy(in a good strong way), and look & feels very reliable. works from a distance of around 6fts too..
Wireless, works on 2 AAA battery (supplied in box).
Mouse is awesome too.. again heavy(in a good strong way) , and look & feels very reliable. Little switch below to switch it off too. Wireless, works on 2 AAA battery (supplied in box).
Note they both are linked to one receiver. so you'll have only one of your USB engaged).
Warranty : 3 YEARS on site by HP.(No tension to extend warranty)
Power: 65 W DC.
Want a Basic Home PC, which looks stunning and elevates your work desk and working experience. don't think twice.
JUST GO FOR IT..!!
