Asus Essentio CM5571-BR003 and HP Pavilion p6230y - HP Pavilion Design
(Page 4 of 4 )
The Pavilion p6230y comes with plenty of room inside to upgrade its configuration as well. You can add an extra hard drive if you need additional storage. You can also upgrade the RAM from 8 GB to 16 GB.
There is also room in terms of a 16x PCI Express slot, one standard PCI slot, and one 1x PCI Express slot. Those come in handy in case you want to upgrade to a 3D video card or something of that nature.
Like many other desktops on the market, the Pavilion p6230y has a standard look. Its sides have a metallic color scheme, and its front panel is glossy black with some chrome highlights. It's a nice looking tower that should complement any room or office well. The tower is light; it weighs just 9.8 pounds and measures 15.3 inches tall by 7 inches wide by 16.9 inches deep.
The top of the front panel houses the media card reader. Below that is an expansion bay and the DVD drive. The front panel also houses two USB ports and microphone and headphone jacks.
The back panel houses four more USB ports, an Ethernet port, a FireWire port, audio jacks, a VGA port, and a DVI port. A HDMI port and an eSATA port would have been nice additions, but are not present with the p6230y.
The HP Pavilion p6230y is a solid choice if you are looking for a desktop for everyday use. The performance is fast, and the feature set is well-rounded. Connectivity is not the best available, but if that is of high importance to you, then you might want to shop around to see how the p6230y compares to other desktops in its price range.
