Woot habitually has better deals on HP's every week. Better stats for a better price.
I got this Gateway, arrived today from when it was on woofi. I chose this over the HP's for a few reasons:
-it's "new" so the warranty is 1 year vs 90 days
-it has a slim case, much smaller, better for an HTPC
-lower power usage CPU, better for HTPC as I plan to leave this on 24/7 once I get plex set up
-Bluetooth built in
Everything else is pretty comparable between the two. Had the Gateway not been available I would probably gone with one of the HP's, but this one just fit my needs better. Choice is good.
