HP Pavilion p6130y desktop computer review

By on September 22, 2009

HPPavilion-p6130yHP’s Pavilion series comprises all kinds of models, few very high profile ones, few mid segment ones, and few attractive and economical ones. One of the members of this elite family is the Pavilion p6130y.

This computer is attractive to look at, very competent in terms of performance, has plenty of features, and carries a modest price tag of $630. This computer however, will make its mark considering the fact that HP relies heavily on its rock solid customer support and service, an area where other manufacturers surely lag behind.

HP also provides online support with this model. All these benefits, coupled with excellent performance will surely make the HP Pavilion p6130y to come out on the top.

The Pavilion p6130y can easily be called as the senior version of the p6110y desktop model from the same family. The design of this computer is attractive in the sense that its glossy black casing instantly catches your eye and its curved edges look equally soothing to sight.

The body of the computer features a power button that is lit by a blue LED. Just explore the face of the system carefully and you will find an excellently designed sliding panel that is responsible for keeping the front USB ports, audio jacks, and media card reader hidden.

The computer houses a 2.4GHz AMD Phenom X4 9750 processor that is powered by 8GB 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM.  For graphics, this computer relies on a couple of shared 256MB Nvidia GeForce 9100 integrated graphics cards.

The optical drive in this computer is a dual layer DVD burner. The computer houses a pre loaded version of the 64-bit Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 operating system.

This computer could have done a lot better with a quad-core chip or a Blu-ray drive. In terms of connectivity, you will find 5 USB 2.0 ports, FireWire port, VGA port, 7.1 analog audio port, etc on this machine.

The machine also supports 10/100 Ethernet networking and 802.11b/g wireless networking. However, there are no HDMI or eSATA ports on this computer. The computer is pretty good on the upgrade front and can prove to be an excellent option for you.

    The review above states that (This computer could have done a lot better with a quad-core chip or a blue ray drive.) Well a Blue-ray drive would be nice but the AMD Phenom 9750 Quad-Core Processor is quad-core.
