HP Pavilion Desktop PC with Intel Core i5 Processor (Refurbished)
Offering plenty of storage and reliable performance, this desktop PC features a seventh-generation Intel Core i5 processor, as well as dual storage that devotes a full terabyte to music and other files.
An OS for the Modern Machine
Windows 10 pairs the flexibility of a traditional computer operating system with the intuitive layout of a mobile OS. A fast new web browser, the media- and app-filled Windows Store, and Cortana personal assistant come pre-installed, working together to help you easily navigate to what you’d like to see or do.
Ample Storage Space
A spacious hard drive offers plenty of room for large computer programs, saved game files, and multimedia storage. A single terabyte (TB) can hold up to 17,000 hours of music—enough to play your library nonstop for almost two years without ever repeating a song—or 310,000 photographs, the equivalent of one photo every hour, every day, for more than 35 years.
Dual-Band WiFi: Play and Stream Without Lag
If you play a lot of data-intensive online games or stream online video for hours on end, dual-band WiFi ensures you can connect to the fastest available network. While most internet networks operate on the congested 2.4GHz band, dual-band WiFi also lets you connect to networks operating on the more modern 5GHz band, which provides more bandwidth for faster app downloads and smoother video streams.

When iconic company Hewlett-Packard was born in 1939, it was not in a gleaming laboratory or during a late-night study session at a prestigious university. It was in a 12’x18’ garage that contained only a workbench and a used drill press. University friends Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard sold audio equipment to Disney (which used them during Fantasia production) and became HP soon after. Their humble garage is now marked with a plaque bearing the title “Birthplace of Silicon Valley.”
HP’s innovations laid the groundwork for the Valley’s surge in technological advances. Between the creation of the first handheld computer, which connected to printers and cassette drives, and development of speedier 64-bit processing technology currently used by brands such as Apple and Microsoft, HP cemented itself as an architect of current tech trends including the tablet and smartphone. It’s a community-conscious company, too; HP has donated to charity since 1940 and offers free recycling for all electronics, regardless of brand, at Staples.
