Well, HP PCs are commodities, for the most part, built with the same care
and attention of a Dell or Gateway. Certainly nothing to write home about. 

HP used to have a nice boutique operation called Voodoo PC, who made the
wonderful Blackbird computer, but a couple of years after they bought Voodoo
they closed it down.

Their servers (Z800 series) are very nice, but quite expensive.

Honestly, unless you go for a customized system (Falcon Northwest,
Cyberpower, Alienware, etc.) or a Mac you're gonna get the same commodity
components in the same cheap case. The biggest problem is scrubbing all the
bloatware off the system.
