There's a reason why HP is such a brand name: the company knows what computer features are important to consumers. The HP ENVY h8-1540t is an example of this. The desktop not only looks great, it offers performance and speed at an affordable price.

Are you currently debating whether or not to go with an ENVY desktop? This model is a great place to start. The numerous configuration and upgrade options offer you a great deal of flexibility. You can either go with the factory options or configure it with your own preferences.

Sometimes there are HP ENVY h8-1540t promo codes available that will help you get a good deal. Always be on the lookout for them before you place your order.

What is it about this PC that makes it worth every penny? Just take a look at the processor: it's a 2nd generation i7 model (3820) at 3.6 GHz. It also has a 10 MB shared cache. If that isn't enough, you can always go with a six-core processor.

The minimum amount of memory you can expect is 10 GB (1600 MHz). This is enough to handle most applications and software. However, you might want a bit more if you plan on playing games with heavy, demanding graphics. While it's not advertised as a gaming machine, it can still be used as one. This desktop can handle up to 32 GB of SDRAM. Don't think you'll need that much? Additional options include 12 GB and 16 GB.

As you would expect with a desktop like this, there is plenty of hard drive storage space, ranging from 2 TB – 4 TB. If you want a solid state drive, you can choose a 256 GB one. Some of the SATA hard drives also include an ExpressCache 16 GB SSD. Even though no secondary drive is included with the base price, there is still room for one if you need it. For the optical drive, the h8-1540t is compatible with SuperMulti players and writers, as well as Blu-Ray players and writers.

If you wish to enjoy games and other media, you'll need a good video card. Options for AMD Radeon HD and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards are available. They all allow for extra connectivity via HDMI, VGA, and DVI adapters. You can play watch your favorite movies and enjoy your favorite games on a large high definition display.

Since the HP ENVY h8-1540t isn't advertised as a gaming machine, it's more affordable than one. It can do just about anything you want it to, from multi-tasking to video editing. It's obvious that HP has done its research on what consumers want, and that this desktop is the result of that research.
