1TB Hard Drive
A terabyte equals one trillion bytes. To put that in perspective, that's room enough for about 250,000 MP3 files, or according to Ron White, in his book, "How Computers Work", 20,000 four-drawer filing cabinets filled with text. In addition, this hard drive operates at a variable RPM which means you've got the best of both worlds, full speed for demanding loads and energy conservation during minimal access.
With Intel Smart Cache you benefit from increased data access because the cache is shared between the cores from a single access point and optimized by workload demand. That means your system is making maximum use of its resources, enhancing multi-threading, and reducing storage redundancy.
Intel® HD Graphics 2000
Casual gamers will love that Intel HD Graphics offers the performance needed for mainstream games so what you see looks amazing and runs without hesitation or interruption. No more discrete graphics cards. The built-in visuals of the 2nd generation Intel Core processor eliminate the need for a discrete graphics card, reducing power consumption and system cost.
High Definition Audio
You know that moment when you que up your your favorite MP3, and when the music starts it totally surrounds your senses because it's so clear and pure? Prepare to be awed by some serious high-quality sound; like hearing your tunes for the very first time.
Intel Virtualization Technology
Consolidates multiple environments into a single server or PC. It provides greater user flexibility that can help reduce costs, improve security, and increase resiliency regarding contingency planning.
Take advantage of 64-bit computing when using 64-bit compatible software. This architecture enables systems to access more than 4GB of virtual and physical memory. Also known as EM64T, it is fully compatible with 32-bit operating systems giving you the flexibility to upgrade to a 64-bit OS when ever you're ready. Intel's 64 architecture works on servers, workstations, desktops, and mobile platforms.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology
Now get even more performance enhancing, energy conserving benefits from Intel. With SpeedStep technology, your processor simultaneously switches voltage and frequency to high or low levels depending on processor load. Enhanced SpeedStep technology performs voltage and frequency changes separately so the system performs better with reduced latency due to system unavailability.
Thermal Monitoring Technologies
This feature is designed to protect the processor in the event of unusual circumstances such as cooling fan failure which can cause damage if internal chassis temperatures become higher than normal. It works by reducing the processor's power consumption if the programmed thermal temperature is exceeded.
The processor contains a thermal diode which measures the actual CPU temperature and relays its temperature and thermal requirements to the motherboard. The motherboard uses those requirements to control the processor fan and ensure it does not spin faster than necessary - even under worst case power use.
Intel Fast Memory Access
Intel updated its integrated memory controller hub technology to optimize available memory bandwidth and reduce latency associated with memory access, thereby improving system performance.
Intel Flex Memory Access
This Intel technology makes upgrading easier by "allowing different memory sizes to be populated and remain in dual-channel mode," according to Intel.
Execute Disable Bit
Reduces your system's exposure to viruses and mal-ware attacks, and the chances of self-executing and propagating software from taking down your system or network. That can save you costly repairs, lost productivity, and revenue.
Extended Page Tables
Boosting memory for demanding virtualizaiton applications, this hardware optimization, also known as Second Level Address Translation (SLAT), helps reduce power consumption and its associated costs while also aiding battery life.
Windows® 7 Professional
Enhanced productivity features to streamline routine tasks. It also simplifies network connections and has several security protections including automatic system and network backups. Entertainment has never been cooler than with Windows Media Center. You can watch, pause, and record live programs, enjoy a variety of online entertainment, or take a break with your best music. Windows 7 also supports DirectX 11. Gamers will love its smoother 3D animation and realistic graphics.
Still hooked on XP? Windows 7 has an XP mode that lets you run most of your XP programs in the Windows 7 environment.
Use Music Stage, Photo Stage, and Video Stage to manage your music, photos, videos, podcasts, even Web pages, and more. Your libraries are arranged by tiles with your most recently accessed content appearing first. And, you can create shortcuts and customize playlists to arrange them your way. Stage also lets you stream radio stations from around the globe. Access Napster to buy your favorite band's new song or visit Noisey to enjoy concert videos. Use your Dell smartphone or tablet as a remote control for sharing libraries between your WiFi networked and supported devices or through your online cloud. It's super easy with SyncUP powered by Nero.
