Hard Drive: The 100 GB hard drive (4200 RPM) is above average in size for notebook PCs, and it's roomy enough to store business productivity applications, all your important documents and presentations, and a good-sized digital audio and video library.
Blending affordability with productivity power, the HP Pavilion dv5040us notebook PC is a great choice for both business road warriors and multimedia enthusiasts on the go. The 15.4-inch BrightView display looks good even in direct sunlight, and movies and games will look clear thanks to the ATI Radeon ATI Radeon XPress 200 video/graphics card (with 128 MB of shared memory). Enjoy movies or music in seconds with the external DVD or music buttons to launch HP QuickPlay (which bypasses the boot process). Control playback settings from up to 10 feet away with the included HP remote, then store it conveniently in the PC card slot. And you'll stay productive with the 2.2 GHz AMD Turion 64 ML-40 processor. This notebook also features a 100 GB hard drive, 2 GB of installed RAM (which maxes out its capacity), built-in 54g wireless connectivity, Bluetooth wireless capability (for connecting to printers, cell phones, and more), and dual layer DVD+/-RW drive (which also burns CDs).
Processor: Combining strong performance with efficient usage of power, the 2.2 GHz AMD Turion 64 ML-40 is uniquely optimized to power today's thinnest notebooks. It's also built for tomorrow's 64-bit applications, which will require a processor with significant power. It includes such AMD technology features as HyperTransport (which increases the communication between integrated circuits), PowerNow! (which enables longer battery life and reduced heat generation), and Enhanced Virus Protection (which works with Windows XP Service Pack 2 to better withstand attacks from certain classes of viruses). It also features a 1 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance.)
Memory: The 2 GB of installed RAM (PC2700, 333 MHz, 2 x 1 GB) maxes out the RAM capacity for this notebook (which is a rarity from a pre-built PC), which enables you to enjoy immersive 3D gaming, edit video, and prepare multimedia-intensive presentations right out of the box.
CD/DVD Drive: Offering the latest in DVD writing technology, this PC's multiformat DVD/CD drive is compatible with both DVD+ and DVD- disc formats as well as dual-layer (DL) DVD+/-R discs, which can store up to 8.5 GB of data. It features 4x DVD-R DL Write Once, 2.4x DVD+R DL Write Once, 8x DVD+R, 4x DVD+RW, 8x DVD-R, 4x DVD-RW, 8x DVD-ROM, 40x CD-R, 24x CD-RW, and 40x CD-ROM speeds. It also comes with a second DVD-ROM optical drive, with 16x read speed.

Your software, PC and discs work together for a no-hassle way to burn just the labels you want.
