Oh, and one more thing: It’s Wi-Fi enabled.

Design: The HP Pavilion A6750F is encased in the basic tower CPU design but sports a sleeker, shiny black-and-silver chassis that measures 6.9 x 16.3 x 9.6 inches and weighs 25.4 pounds, which is a pretty standard size for a tower CPU. Like many newer desktops on the market it has a slim keyboard design. However, a monitor has to be purchased separately.
