Processor and Hard Drive:
The processor within this Compaq Presario Desktop is the AMd Athlon X2. This processor features two execution cores, which will allow you the freedom to enjoy a higher level of functionality as the two cores will streamline your requests. If you have ever experienced lag time within a computer response, you will understand how this can obstruct overall productivity. Within this desktop, you will have the ability to easily navigate throughout your files and folders without suffering in functionality.
One aspect that disappointed me within this desktop is the hard drive, which features 320GB worth of storage space. While this isn’t a terrible amount of storage, much higher than the industry average, it still isn’t what you would expect from a computer that has decent features as this one. While the hard drive does not feature a massive amount of space, it does have a very fast read/write speed of 7200RPM, which is a great feature.
Within this Compaq Presario Desktop you will be able to not only read and write DVDs and CDs through the dual-layer optical drive, but you can also create your own labels. The LightScribe Technology System utilizes lasers to etch professional-quality images and text directly onto your discs, which is great when you have to make a presentation for work or school.
As for connectivity, you will be able to connect to the Internet through the 10/100Base Ethernet connection; wireless connectivity does not come standard with this computer. There are a total of six USB 2.0 ports, which is plenty for the average computer user. There is also a headphone and microphone jack within the tower of this computer. Two of the USB ports are located on the front of the tower while the other four are located within the rear.
