Not bad, its a 2nd gen i3 and doesn't have the sturdy feel of the newer series hp - but if you take into account the 5x back using chase ink its a good price

If I buy a new computer i know it will be with win 8 , read many who have it are not happy with it --

do the new computers come with an option to stay with win 7?

have  read something about "virtual machine" --workable ?

or how can one who is not great with "new" systems get comfortable-- is it all about the missing start button on win 8 ?

do you know of any plans to update( strange choice when going backwards --lol!) win 8 to old desk top type?

This has been discussed many times here. My feelings are that once you install the win 7 start menu (classic start or startmenu8 or other options) it feels just like win 7 and shouldn't give you any issues.

I'm not a pro, but the experts here generally recommend to stay away from AMD processors.
