Manufacturer's Description

Standing with style and simplicity, the HP Pavilion 500-081ea Desktop PC is packed with the power, tools and engineering you need to take on daily tasks comfortably.

Welcome to Windows 8

Preinstalled on the Pavilion, the Windows 8 operating system gives you faster, easier access to your files and media. The updated Start screen puts your favourite apps and programmes at your finger tips, with everything you need little more than a click away. With Live Tiles, Windows 8 keeps you updated with what matters to you. From news and emails to your social network, Live Tiles display instant updates from many applications without the need to open them. Windows 8 is Cloud ready, meaning all your documents, preferences and information can be securely backed up online. By simply logging in with an email address, you can easily access your files from any computer or Windows device you may find yourself using.

Performance speeds

The Pavilion PC packs a punch with the Intel® Core™ i5-3330S processor. Delivering a serious clock speed of 2.7 GHz, this is enough oomph to tackle intense computing tasks. With speeds usually reserved for overclocked PCUs, the i5-3330S provides the ultimate in home-processing without the need for complicated fiddling or the risk of a voided warranty. The 6 MB cache gives the i5-3330S a large immediate memory, allowing the four cores to tackle more at once, giving you the fast experience. A generous 8 GB of RAM helps with multitasking, so whether you’re downloading a movie while surfing or referencing multiple documents, you can be sure there won’t be any slowdowns. Performance specs are completed by a huge 2 TB hard drive. Capable of storing up to half a million songs, you can be sure there will be enough room for all of your favourite games and media.

Multimedia hub

Movies and games will not only look better, they’ll sound fantastic too as the Pavilion comes with High Definition 7.1 surround sound. The Pavilion 500 supports the HP Connected Remote, an Android or IOS app that gives you full control of the media on your PC, directly through your smartphone. It also allows direct sharing of photos between your smartphone, PC and any of your friend’s devices running Windows 8 or HP Connected.

Connected

The USB ports, including USB 3.0 ports, allow fast and easy data transfers. The two USB 3.0 ports transfer data far faster than standard USB, making backing up data to an external hard drive that much quicker. A Gigabit Ethernet LAN port makes wired internet connection simple, though there are ample expansion ports should you require a wireless connection. Practical and powerful, the HP Pavilion 500-081ea Desktop PC is sure to keep you on top.
