Excerpt: As we continue further and further down our list of top multimedia computers , we begin falling into budget multimedia machines as opposed to performance computers. Though we have reviewed other performance HP desktop computers, the HP Pavilion 500 does not have the horsepower to compete with the elite computers we reviewed. The HP Pavilion 500-010xt is the model we reviewed for our lineup. HP has other models within the Pavilion series worth looking into.
Pros: The Pavilion 500 has decent components for a budget PC.
Cons: The stock model only has an Intel HD graphics card, which isn’t impressive.
