Now the specs on this desktop might not be all that impressive, but the real reason I included these HP Pavilion Desktop PCs is because HP provides a lot of options to customize the specs on this PC. These specs shown above are only the “starter pack” given by HP. Their official website provides a lot of options to switch up most of the performance specs in your desired prebuild, such as the CPU, GPU, RAM and storage.
For example, if you feel like the entry-level specs are not good enough, you have the option to choose between Core i5, Ryzen 5, Core i7 and Ryzen 7 CPUs. A similar range applies to the GPUs as well (The GTX 1660, RTX 2060 and RTX 3060 are the available options). Along with that, you can pick the amount of RAM, storage and PSU capacity. (450W or 500W)
HP has done a great job of letting the user customize their prebuilt in a very intuitive manner. They don’t provide a ton of options, but just enough, so that beginners and experts can easily understand and pick what they please.
The entry level storage options are the typical 256GB SSD. You have the choice to go for a 512GB or 1TB SSD and there’s also the chance to add secondary 1TB or 2 TB HDD. In terms of RAM you’ve got the option between 16GB (8×2) or 32 GB (16×2).
There’s also a complimentary keyboard and mouse with the option to go full wireless and a host of other optional software such as McAfee, Microsoft office along with tech support plans and warranty plans.
