This HP Pavilion is powered by the dual-core Intel Core i5-450M processor. This is a 64-bit  CPU with 4 processing threads.  It runs at 2.4GHz but can use TurboBoost to get up to 2.66 GHz when it needs to. This is a 35W processor.  The laptop comes with 4GB of 1066MHz DDR3 RAM gives you the memory you need to multitask without a worry. It can hold a maximum of 8GB.

The screen is a 14″ LED-backlit high-definition widescreen display with a resolution of 1366×768.  The screen is driven by Intel UMA graphics which is not powerful at all, so don’t expect to be playing many games.

For storage you get a 640GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  One of the biggest drives you can get in a laptop these days.  The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support.  The media reader is a 5-in-1 reader supports Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, MultiMediaCard Plus, Memory Stick and xD-Picture Card formats.

For networking you get a 10/100/1000 Mbps Fast Ethernet LAN adapter for your wired networking needs. You can get to this through the RJ-45 port.  For wireless you can use the built-in 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN adapter. There’s built-in .3 megapixel webcam with facial recognition technology for an added layer of security.  It also allows you to do some video chatting with Skype if you’re so inclined.

External ports include 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 VGA adapter for connecting an external monitor, 1 HDMI port, 1 headphone and 1 microphone in.  This laptop is uniquely styled with bamboo texture for that woodgrain look of an old station wagon if you’re into that sort of thing..

This laptop comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit.  Other software includes Adobe Reader, Power2Go 6 and more. 60-day trial of Microsoft Office Professional 2007 included.

The laptop measures 9.5″x13.5″x1.25″ and weighs 5 pounds.   This laptop is Energy Star qualified which means it’s designed to meet the strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and the US DOE.
