    USB 3.0 Gen 2 Type C

    What does this mean? There is no such thing as USB 3.0 Gen 2.


    Alvian this has been updated to USB 3.1 Type-C™ as it looks like a typo, thank you for picking this up.


    16 GB primary drive? You'd want to replace that with an SSD.

      Intel Optane can't be used as primary drive, it's acting as cache. the 3TB spinning rust is the primary drive in this configuration.

      (edit - see alvian's comment for disambiguation on the 2 different types of Optane)


      The 16GB Optane drive is used as a fast caching drive to augment the 3TB HDD to increase speed of your active workload & regularly used programs.

      Intel Optane Memory = Disk cache for HDD
      Intel Optane SSD = Ultra fast SSD

    Compared with contempory offerings at that price:

    Ryzen 5 3600 vs i5-8400 - Ryzen wins by a nose.

    GTX 1660 vs AMD Radeon 520 - GTX wins by 13 lengths.

    Buy it if you really like HP, their warranty or off-the-shelfness. I couldn't assess the cost of postage, as the site didn't want to co-operate, even with all privacy protections down.

      Ryzen 3600 is miles better than the i5-8400. It's better across the board in gaming (trades blows with the i7-8700k) and 50%+ better in multi-threaded productivity tasks. I think you may have meant the Ryzen 2600 wins by a nose.
      EDIT: Having spotted the deal you're comparing to, you clearly meant 2600.
