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.

AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) Technology
Designed to facilitate users simultaneously running multiple operating systems while enabling responsive switching between each OS, AMD-V technology uses hardware extensions and memory management to provide a robust and scalable virtualization environment that streamlines resource usage for energy efficiency. It also allows the virtual machine direct device access helping to increase security and integrity.
From an architecture perspective, AMD 64 allows multiple cores — each having its own L1 and L2 caches — to be totally integrated within a single processor. From a technology standpoint, AMD 64 doubles the number of processor registers giving you the benefit of running either 32-bit or 64-bit software applications.
Enhanced Virus Protection
Also called EVP, Enhanced Virus Protection works with Windows Vista or Windows
XP SP2 to help protect computers against malicious viruses, worms, and Trojan
horses that can wreak havoc with your system and your data.
EVP works by designating areas of system memory for data only, meaning code
may only be read from or written to but not executed. If your computer does
get a virus, this built-in security technology can help keep it contained to
a specific location and make it easier to remove it from system memory.
To explain it simply, MMX technology is an instruction set designed to improve handling of graphics, video, and audio and process them faster and more efficiently. In addition to enhancing performance, MMX technology can enable higher quality audio and better image color, quality, and clarity.
10/100/1000 Gigabit Network
Just when you thought life couldn't go any faster, technology changed the rules. Using more bandwidth and full-duplex capacity, the 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet will have you connecting with the Internet or your other devices faster than you can say gigabit.
