HP Pavilion includes a September 2015 release Skylake i7 processor with a Passmark benchmark score of 7971 that is both fast and powerful (with both turbo boost and hyper threading) and stays cool even at warm temperatures and offers energy efficiency. Both RAM and hard drive are upgradeable so you can add more memory or SSD but is not super easy to do unless you have the tools as you need to remove the entire back part. It is suitable for a variety of purposes including a home entertainment centre and is powerful enough to handle a variety of heavy workload, lots of multitasking and multimedia tasks including some gaming, videos and movies. Keyboard is not backlit but comfy and ergonomic with 10-key numpad and a functional touchpad.
