HP hasn’t said what system will command the $560 base price, though it’s likely to be an AMD model with a 3GHz quad-core Phenom II, 8GB of RAM, a Radeon HD 5450 for video and a 1TB disk. It and other desktop updates are available both online and in store today.

The Pavilion p6600 represents HP’s full-size but budget desktops and scales up to a 2.8GHz Phenom II with only one of four models having the option of going Intel through a 3.2GHz Core i3. Prices start at a low $300 for a 2.9GHz Athlon II quad-core chip, 4GB of RAM, integrated Radeon HD 4200 video and a 750GB hard drive.
