HP Pavilion Slimline s3500z Desktop PC

Get the power of a fully loaded PC plus great digital entertainment in one space-saving machine, our Pavilion Slimline s3500z.

Genuine Windows Vista with Service Pack 1
Get things done, stay connected, and enjoy entertainment in a secure environment with Windows Vista Home Basic. For enhanced entertainment, choose Vista Home Premium, which includes Windows Aero, Windows Media Center, and instant search functionality. Upgrade to genuine Windows Vista Ultimate and you'll notice the difference in the new look, instant search, built-in Windows Media Center, and automated security features.

Compact and versatile
Just a third the size of a traditional HP tower PC, the Slimline fits almost anywhere. It's perfect in the kitchen or a spare bedroom for looking up recipes, chatting online, paying bills, and reading the news.

Good things, small package
The petite Slimline s3500z packs all the functionality of a full-sized PC: plenty of memory, fast processor, lots of hard drive space. You get up to six USB ports (two in front, four in back). It even has a 15-in-1 digital media card reader for fast transfer of videos, photos, and music to your PC.

Heavy-duty processing power
This series features powerful AMD dual-core and quad-core processors for excellent multitasking and entertainment without slowing down your system.

Design-your-own disc labels
The included DVD writer with LightScribe1 lets you label discs with professional-looking text and images. After burning a LightScribe-enabled disc, you just flip it over and reinsert for labeling; there's no need to print, align, or attach a sticker.

The latest in DVDs: Blu-ray
Enhance your high-definition entertainment with a Blu-ray disc writer. You can read and write Blu-ray discs, read HD DVD discs, and read and write traditional DVDs and CDs. Once you try high-def DVD, you'll never go back. Note: select a dedicated graphics card upgrade for the best performance.

High-quality software
We test and qualify all software sold with our PCs to help ensure a trouble-free experience with your new computer. In addition, our software prices are competitive: they're equal to—and often lower than—prices you'll commonly find in stores and online.

Features for kids
Customize your s3500z with EasyBits Magic Desktop software for kids ages 2 to 10, an "operating system" that's both child-proof and child-friendly. You control which programs your kids can access, and when. EasyBits also has a spam- and virus- protected e-mail program and Web browser that you can monitor.

Norton Internet Security
The Pavilion s3500z can be customized with a 15-month subscription to Norton Internet Security 2008 software; you can upgrade to 36 months of protection from viruses, worms, and other malicious programs.

Pocket storage
The optional HP Pocket Media Drive lets you store, share, and transport music, videos, photos, and documents. It docks in its own built-in bay on all HP Pavilion Slimline models, or you can use it via a standard USB connection. There's no separate power supply, so it's quiet and cool.
