Questions and Answers

More Info

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.

Smart Cache
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.

HP Beats Audio™
HP knows serious music lovers want more than just quality sound, they want an audio experience. It's time to discover your digital tracks with all of the sonic integrity infused by the recording artists. Beats Audio blends HP's technological expertise with the solid musical mastery of Dr. Dre and renowned music producer Jimmy lovine in a collaborative partnership to create an audio system that will rock your world.

Intel Quick Sync Video
Built into every 2nd generation Intel Core™ processor, Quick Sync Video enables users to quickly create, edit, synchronize, and share video files from home or make them available online without the need for extra hardware. In addition, media conversion between devices takes just minutes thanks to hardware acceleration streamlining this process at incredible speed. That includes creating DVDs, Blu-ray™ discs, or editing and converting HD videos for portable media devices or uploading to your favorite social media sites.

Intel InTrue™ 3D Technology
The perfect way to watch 3D movies. InTrue 3D technology delivers 1080p, hi-def resolution 3D action to your TV using HDMI 1.4. With Blu-Ray® Stereo 3D playback using active shutter 3D glasses, you may not believe your eyes when it comes to 3D realism!

Intel Clear Video HD Technology
Enjoy better than ever visual quality and color fidelity enhancements and exceptionally vivid HD and Blu-ray™ playback. Built into every 2nd generation Intel Core™ processor, Clear Video Technology takes color accuracy to a whole new level bringing every image to life whether you're surfing the Net, catching an HD movie, or enjoying your own videos.

By using a combination of hardware and software technologies, Intel has enabled enhanced high-quality, 108p high-def image rendering in a variety of media including Blu-ray and streaming web content.

Windows Live™ Essentials
Now have even more fun with Windows Live Essentials. With programs like Movie Maker you can be the creative director of your own media studio turning your videos and photos into memorable works of art complete with sound and special effects. Then share your artistic works with family and friends while you're chatting via Messenger. There's also programs for managing multiple e-mail accounts, parental controls, and even a program for creating a cool blog.

Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
Intel's hyper-threading technology means you'll get peak performance for your multithreaded applications thanks to higher processing throughput. To put it simply, each core of the processor is capable of working on multiple tasks at the same 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.

Intel 64
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.

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.

Windows® 7 Home Premium
Faster boot times, streamlined task management, security enhancements, advances in touch capability, and more ways to personalize your system. With Windows 7 Home Premium, it's even easier to network your components, share files, watch Internet TV and record those must-see shows or make your own movies from your favorite photos. 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 Live™ Essentials
Now have even more fun with Windows Live Essentials. With programs like Movie Maker you can be the creative director of your own media studio turning your videos and photos into memorable works of art complete with sound and special effects. Then share your artistic works with family and friends while you're chatting via Messenger. There's also programs for managing multiple e-mail accounts, parental controls, and even a program for creating a cool blog.
