Configuration and features
An AMD® Athlon™ 64 X2 (B) 5200+ 2.7 GHz processor capable of performing 2000 MT/s (mega transfers/second) sits on the AM2 socket of the nVidia GeForce 6150SE/nForce 430 motherboard, making this desktop a fast machine to work with. The nVidia chipset motherboard comes with integrated graphics and audio, taking care of graphic needs like games and video editing, and providing high-definition 2.1 channel audio output.
The HP Pavilion a6532f comes pre-installed with 3 GB of DDR2 SD RAM, enough to run Windows Vista’s applications and multimedia software with ease. This killer configuration is supported with a 500 GB hard drive running at 7200 rpm, providing a vast storage option to users.
The combo optical drive is capable of reading and writing to both single and double layer CDs/DVDs, as well as "printing" CD covers using HP's LightScribe technology (which involves turning the CD or DVD over and inserting it upside down in the drive to burn the image). The machine also comes with a multimedia keyboard and PS/2 optical mouse.
No monitor or display is added with the device package. For a great value, I would recommend the LG Flatron L245WP monitor (see review here) with a 24" screen to provide stunning effect to your games and movies.
Along with superb hardware, this machine comes equipped with plenty of useful software that makes using this PC a delightful experience from first run. Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit with Windows Media Centre is preinstalled. Following is the list of software included with the device package: Windows Movie Maker and Windows DVD Maker, CyberLink PowerDVD Suite 5, LightScribe Template Labeler, My HP Games, Muvee autoProducer Basic, Adobe Reader, Microsoft Works 9, Microsoft Office Home and Student Edition 2007 Trial, Norton Internet Security 2008 (60-day security update subscription), and a lot more.
As with other HP products, the computer comes with a one year limited warranty and 24x7 phone and e-mail customer support.
