2 Other reasons to consider the HP Pavilion 500

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this desktop computer was released.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.2 gigahertz, the Pavilion 500 has a fairly typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the Pavilion 500.

We compared this personal computer to all the other 3.2GHz processor clock speed PCs and we think because of it's better review score, the MSI Nightblade B85C is also worth considering.

Computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the HP Z240 (£644.40) (3.3GHz and higher rated).
