Care Plan
from £3.00 per month


Desktop PC Care Plan

A Care Plan protects your computer if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap. You also benefit from a computer healthcheck every year..

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Work and play with the effortless everyday performance of the HP Pavilion 500-242ea Refurbished Desktop PC.

Wonderful Windows

The Pavilion 500-242ea boasts the expressive Windows 8 operating system and is the ideal platform for controlling your entire digital world with ease.

The home screen is based around live tiles, customisable program icons that show updates from a wealth of compatible programs and apps. From keeping up to date with news and sport to receiving up to the minute information from your social network, Windows 8 makes sure you won't miss a thing.

There are improvements coming to Windows 8 with the launch of the free 8.1 update. These include the reintroduction of the Start button, new Live Tile sizes and adjustable four-way multi-tasking windows along with developments to the lock screen, search and more.

Powerful processing

The Pavilion 500 is powered by an AMD A8-5500 APU. An APU is a processor that features an integrated graphics card and provides excellent processing power, crisp graphics and low power consumption from a single unit. 

An impressive everyday clock speed of 3.2 GHz makes the AMD A8-5500 more than capable of taking care of most computing tasks. From everyday word processing and web browsing to more specialist tasks such as photo and media editing, it provides quick computing that won't leave you waiting.

Multitasking and demanding processes are aided by 6 GB of RAM. This helps the Pavilion 500 to work on more at once, making for a smoother computing experience no matter the task.

Serious storage

A large 1 TB hard drive provides storage for your entire family's files, documents and media. Backing up is simple too thanks to the USB 3.0 ports that make light work of copying even the largest of files to external storage.

Glorious graphics

The AMD APU features AMD Radeon HD 7560D & R5 235 dual graphics. This provides crisp everyday computing and ensures you get the best from high definition films and media. It's also capable of playing many popular games, making the Pavilion 500 the ideal introduction into PC gaming.

Ready for the future

You needn't worry about keeping up with technology thanks to four free PCI slots. Suitable for graphics and sounds cards along with any other hardware you may find yourself needing, the Pavilion 500 is ready for the future.

Convenient connections

Connecting to your preferred screen is easy thanks to the DVI connection. Getting online is simple too thanks to built-in WiFi and a high speed Ethernet port for wired network connection.

In addition to two high speed USB 3.0 ports, there are also four USB 2.0 ports which make it easy to connect peripherals such as webcams, external hard drives and more.

Enjoy fast family computing with the HP Pavilion 500-242ea Refurbished Desktop PC, which boasts a smart and space-saving compact design.

This refurbished computer has been professionally checked, tested and re-boxed by our experts. While there may be some minor cosmetic imperfections, this computer will be fully functional and comes with a reassuring 12-month warranty and offers fantastic savings over the 'as new' price.
