When you get home with your new Hewlett-Packard (HP) Pavilion, you have a few things to do (although very few) to get up and running. You can get going so fast because HP has included tons of software you can start using right away, and because of something called plug and play.

Plug and play is a set of specifications that Microsoft and Intel came up with that automatically sets up your computer to work with peripherals. Do terms like peripherals make your head spin? Well, relax. You can consider this chapter your Personal Computer (PC) primer. You'll learn all about peripherals, plug and play, and what you need to get your new Pavilion going right out of the box.
