The HP Pavilion a6000 is an AMD-based desktop computer sold by Hewlett-Packard. This computer is designed to run Windows Vista and is capable of running Windows 7.
The central processing unit (CPU) of an HP Pavilion a6000 is a 2.2 gigahertz (GHz) American Micro Devices AMD Athlon 64 X2 rated at 4200+ total clock speed. This processor is a dual-core model, meaning it has two processing cores in one CPU chip.
The a6000 comes standard with 1 gigabyte (GB) of random-access memory. This is the minimum requirement of RAM for running Windows Vista or 7. The RAM type used in this computer is double-data rate (DDR) RAM. Two 512 megabyte (MB) chips are installed, with two empty RAM slots left on the motherboard for future upgrades. Keep in mind that a used computer does not necessarily contain the same RAM that it was shipped with.
A 250 GB hard drive running at 7,200 rotations per minute (RPM) is standard on this system. The interface type used by this drive is Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA). For an optical drive, the a6000 comes with a digital video disc (DVD) writer. Optical drive options varied, so some systems may be configured with a dual-layer DVD burner, a reader and writer, or combo compact disc (CD) and DVD drive.
