When purchasing a new PC there are several ways to shop. But customizing your own PC is the best way to get the features you need and leave out the ones you don’t. You also get to choose the performance level of components, from basic to high-end, so you can customize according to your budget.
Get your PC your way
HP makes it simple to customize a new PC. When you configure a new PC you can customize features like:
- Processor—Improve PC efficiency with faster speeds, measured in GHz.
- RAM—Use more programs at once without slowing down by adding more GB.
- Hard drive—Store more programs, digital media and files with larger storage capacity.
- Graphics card—Enjoy better screen images for gaming or your favorite applications.
- Wireless options—Connect to the Internet, e-mail or other devices the way you want.
- Accessories—Improve your PC experience with supporting hardware and software.
- HP Care Pack Services—Protect your PC investment with a plan that suits your needs.
Start off right
To customize a PC, you’ll start with a base or recommended configuration and a step-by-step configuration process to modify its components. If you’re on a budget, configuring helps you cut back in some areas so you can splurge in others. For example, if speed isn’t a concern but storage is, save with an entry-level processor but indulge on the largest hard drive.
