Bottom Line

The HP Pavilion 550-a114 offers decent performance for home and office use, but the lack of upgradability means it is limited to basic tasks and casual gaming.

The HP Pavilion 550-a114 is a bestselling Certified Refurbished desktop computer that has been praised for its attractive price, its decent hardware and for its sleek silver chassis. But it has limited upgradability and the processor and graphics cards cannot be upgraded. Its Quad-Core processor and 8GB of RAM will easily cope with basic tasks, but will struggle with heavy multitasking and its Radeon R5 graphics chip will only handle casual gaming. Overall the HP Pavilion 550-a114 offers laptop spec hardware in a desktop chassis.
