The HP Pavilion a6400z desktop features an AMD 2.6GHz Processor with 2 GB RAM and a storage space of 320 GB. It uses Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic as its Operating System.
The desktop is a part of the HP a6400z series. All the desktops in this series have the same design irrespective of the configuration. The chasis is simple matte with a glossy black finish and even has a dedicated slot for a graphics card. One of the best features of the desktop is that it has a huge storage space i.e. 320 GB which is more than enough for the average user like me. A large storage space means that i no longer have to resort to deleting any of my data due to lack of space and also that i don't have to go around making DVDs to store the large amount of data once the disk gets full which happened to me a lot when i was using my last PC.
I have been using this PC for the past three months and it has not given me any sort of problems except for some virus problems which were sorted by Norton Antivirus which came preloaded in the Desktop with a 15 month subscription.
The RAM is 2 GB DDR2 dual channel SD RAM (here 2GB means two RAM chips of 1GB each installed in two slots). This means that i get an extra slot and if i want to upgrade i can simply take out one RAM chip from one slot and install another one in its place.
There is a graphics card option with this model, i got an integrated NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE graphics card installed so that i have no problems running my vast collection of games and get the best of the graphics.In my opinion the graphics are the best that i have ever seen.
Another featture that made me buy this desktop was that it has front side ports for USB and audio and a 15 in one card reader so that you don't have to turn to the back of your Desktop every time you want to attach a USB device, which happened to me a lot with my old PC as i constantly needed to attach my Flash drive with my PC.
The best thing about the PC is that it comes with a one year hardware and labor warrenty.It also comes with a one year free software support and a one year toll free support for any kinds of problems and troubleshooting that you may require.
Many people think that it is just an entry level machine and lacks the power needed for resource-hungry applications but that is totally untrue. I have myself done some serious programming in C++ and JAVA using this machine and it just works as smoothly as butter would melt on a toast.
My dealer sent over people for installation of the PC, but I had myself installed the PC well before they arrived. To rate the machine on a scale of 1 to 5, I would give it rating of 4.5 as it has lived up to my standards of work. The PC on the whole is great and i know that i will keep reaping its benefits for a long time to come.
