HP Pavilion Desktop

It should come as no surprise that the market for personal desktop computers is incredibly competitive today. Many companies have tried over the years to establish a foothold, but few have done as well as Hewlett-Packard (HP) with their Pavilion brand, which has survived for over a decade and continues to grow in popularity. An HP Pavilion desktop computer can be found in many homes, schools, and offices around the world. The Pavilion range includes models for everyday use, stylish slimline models, high performance elite models, and all-in-one models that combine a computer and a touch screen. The range includes both desktop and laptop computers, and several new models are introduced every year.

Founded in 1939, Hewlett-Packard has grown to become one of America’s most successful technology companies. It is a leading brand in several different markets and is well regarded for high quality and stylish design. Hewlett-Packard manufactures and sells a large number of consumer electronics products, including the HP Pavilion desktop range. It also makes printers, scanners, calculators, handheld computers, digital cameras, and many other products. There are local Hewlett-Packard offices around the world, which allows them to provide excellent support and servicing.

The first HP Pavilion desktop model was the 5030, which was launched in 1995. It was a multimedia computer aimed at the home market and proved incredibly popular. The HP Pavilion 5030 featured a Pentium 75MHz processor, 8MB of random access memory, 850MB of hard drive space, CD-ROM drive, and speakers. It also came with Windows 95, which was the latest version of Microsoft’s famous operating system back then. These features may have been cutting edge in 1995 but they pale in comparison with those of the latest Pavilion models. The prices have also dropped over the years, making the Pavilion one of the most affordable personal computer brands on the market today.

Hewlett-Packard give their customers plenty of options when it comes to purchasing a HP Pavilion desktop computer. Their online store makes the process of customizing and purchasing a new Pavilion very quick and simple. There are many suggested configurations and customers are free to choose what parts and software they want included on their new computer. Plenty of information is provided at every stage to help customers make a decision about which parts are right for them. Customers can also choose which version of Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system they want install, along with other software products. Unlike the majority of desktop computers sold today, the glossy black finish on the Pavilion cases is very stylish and makes them look good sitting next to a widescreen monitor.

The Everyday, Slimline, and Elite series have four basic configurations to choose from, which also gives customers a starting point for customizing their own computers if they prefer. The Slimline series is similar to the Everyday series on the inside but their cases are noticeably slimmer. The Elite series looks just like the Everyday series on the outside but has more powerful components on the inside. Of course, this makes the Elite series more expensive than the Everyday and Slimline series. The TouchSmart series is different because the components are inside the touch-sensitive monitor, instead of being inside a case next to it. The TouchSmart series can be operated by touching the screen, or by the conventional method of using a keyboard and mouse.

Choosing the right peripherals is just as important as choosing the right computer. The paperless office may still be a dream for many people, but the need for paper documents is as strong today as it has ever been. Hewlett-Packard has been making peripherals for desktop and laptop computers for many years, and is a leading manufacturer of printers and scanners. It is responsible for many well known and respected brands, including DeskJet, LaserJet, PhotoSmart, and ScanJet. Hewlett-Packard also makes calculators and pocket computers, such as the famous iPAQ brand which they gained after they merged with Compaq in 2002. These peripherals and accessories are also available from their online store.
