The CPU powering this laptop is the Intel Pentium P6100.  This is a dual-core processor built on Intel’s Westmere microarchitecture.  It has 3MB of L3 cache and each one runs at 2GHz.  This CPU is built using a 32nm process and only uses 35W. This laptop comes with 3GB DDR3 memory and can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB.  That’s plenty of memory for multi-tasking apps.

The screen is a 14.5″ diagonal High-Definition HP BrightView LED display with a resolution of 1366×768.  That resolution provides a 16:9 aspect ratio and native support for 720p HD content.  The screen is driven by Intel HD graphics which features 64-1696MB dynamically allocated shared video memory. You probably wouldn’t want to play the latest games on this machine.

For storage you get a 320GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 7200RPM.  That’s a good size that should be plenty for all your music, photos and more.  The optical drive is a LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD±R/RW with double layer support.   For that little extra oomph of storage you can use the 5-in-1 integrated Digital Media Reader for Secure Digital cards, MultiMedia cards, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, or xD Picture cards.

On the networking side you get an integrated 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN adapter for your wired Internet connection.  On the wireless side you get a 802.11 b/g/n wifi adapter.  This laptop also comes with an embedded 3G mobile broadband adapter, but this requires an additional data contract from your wireless provider. You can use those network connections with the HP TrueVision Webcam with integrated digital microphone for video chatting with friends and family.

External ports include 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports (3rd port shared with eSATA), 1 HDMI port for connecting to your HDTV, 1VGA port, 1 headphone out and 1 microphone in.  This laptop comes with Dolby Advanced Audio with Altec Lansing speakers and an HP Clickpad with on/off button.

This Pavilion comes installed with Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Symantec Norton Internet Security 2011 60-day trial, HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection, Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash, Microsoft Office 2010 preloaded (requires purchase to activate), Windows Live Messenger and Windows Live Mail.

The laptop measures 13.89″x9.25″x1.22″/1.41″ and weighs 5.19 pounds.  The Pavilion comes with a 6-Cell (55Whr) Lithium ion battery and a 65W AC adapter.
