You didn't specify how the HP Pavilion 20 was configured, so I'm going to assume you went w/the cheapest setup ($449.99) & that it has an AMD cpu (dual-core, 1.4GHz, 1MB L2 cache), 2GB RAM, 500GB hard disk drive, & 1-year limited hardware warranty support.
The Dell (for $479) comes w/an Intel cpu (dual-core, 2.50 GHz, 3M Cache) which is almost 2x faster & has 3x the amount of cache memory, 4GB RAM which is 2x more, 1TB hard disk drive which is 2x more, & a 2 Year Enhanced Support warranty.
The two are not even close. Get the Dell. They have better quality & support than HP by far.

I personally would not recommend any computer that's prebuilt. I recently built my first computer and I'm really satisfied with it; I saved over 25% over what I was going to buy, but the overall product is substantially faster.
As far as building it goes, it's rather simple, even for a person who has never done it before (like me when I built mine this summer). All that a person has to remember is to have a dry, static free workplace and plenty of patience.
As far as warranty goes, each part in the computer has a warranty of it's own. Most parts offer around 3 years (a prebuilt pc only offers one year for everything).
Here's a link to Newegg.com, if do decide to build and have any questions, they are very helpful:
However if building just isn't for you, do not buy any mainstream computer and do not buy at Best Buy (contrary to what the name implies, they are overpriced).
Recommended PC brands: Cyberpower, Alienware, Ibuypower
Recommended Laptops: Asus, Sony Vaio
Avoid: HP, Dell, Acer
The ones I recommended mainly focus on gaming computers so they would exceed any needs you have; as far as price goes, their most affordable rigs start at about $700.00.
Another note, don't buy a Mac. They are not at all that secure, currently Trojans are being created for them like there's no tomorrow. They are also over priced - my $1000 computer would outright smoke even the $3000 Mac Pro.
You show products in the USA and Ireland. None are very good.
The E-1200 CPU in whatever shape and size of the system is a netbook.
The G645T is a lower grade than G645 and is a new dual core Pentium is not as bad so is an adequate cpu.
You can look up cpu and graphics power at this site:
Here is the last survey about desktop pc reliability:
The Dell you show is a little better than the HP.
Not sure where you are at, what you have to spend, whether you have a TV to use or also need a monitor, whether you can fit a normal size tower PC.
Here is a basic desktop PC for $450 that still needs a monitor.

I go with Larry, looks like they all suck.. price wise you should be able to get a i3 or i5 for that money, (in desk top), I am ASUS fan, you can buy a good one for 3-4, I just got an ASUS laptop with i3, 4gb ram, Hdmi, for $295.00. You have to shop,, don't know where you are but shop black Friday sales,,, there are some good bargains out there. I don't go along with the Intel bias,, while they are good, I run a fleet of AMD,, and have found to be a good rugged processor, Intel is good, but I think they are a little too proud of their product.

The dell seems to be the better choice processor wise. AMD is terrible compare to Intel. That's bias, sorry. But 1.4Ghz is not as fast as 2.5Ghz from Dell. The Cache is 1MB compare to Dell 3MB...the higher the better.

In all honesty, I don't think you really need any of them if you are only doing homework, storing music, and photos. In fact, you will find that you are probably better off with a laptop, especially if you are in University. While you loose the screen size, there is no reason to have a desktop unless you are doing computer automated design for engineering or full on photo and video editing.
