Questions and Answers

More Info

Microsoft® Windows 8
This is a whole new user experience for Windows fans. Right from the Start screen, Windows 8 invites users to build a personalized environment for every need, discover apps for fun and essential tasks, and engage in the adventure of technology. Animated tiles provide timely updates on weather, social media, news and all things important to you. View and share photos from a single app, centralize all of your email accounts in one place, streamline managing messaging and social media contacts.

Works with touchscreen systems to enable tap, zoom, and swipe capabilities and it still works with the traditional keyboard and mouse so moving between windows and programs is as easy as a swipe or a click. Other cool new features include picture password, snap windows for easy multitasking, apps to simplify cloud access and storage for documents, your favorite music, and more.

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.

750GB SATA Hard Drive
This systems comes with a 750GB Serial ATA hard drive running at 5,400 RPM. Just to give you some perspective on size, a 750GB hard drive can hold about 164,000 songs or 131,000 photos. 7200RPM is the most common hard drive speed. One nice benefit of a Serial ATA drive is smaller cables which can easily be stowed out of the way of other components. This also promotes better airflow within the case helping to keep your system cooler.

Intel® HD Graphics 3000
Gamers will love Intel's new built-in HD Graphics integrating high-performance graphics and media processing right on the processor. Created to provide discrete 3D graphics performance without busting your budget or draining power or battery life like an add-in card can, HD Graphics 3000 brings you the ultimate gaming experience on Intel-based platforms with titles optimized for Intel HD Graphics.

You benefit from accelerated graphics processing, higher performance, improved energy efficiency, faster 3D rendering including enhanced visuals and even better responsiveness.

Delivering up to three times the performance of previous generation Intel HD Graphics, Intel's latest technology is built with an eye on the future of gaming so you'll enjoy stunning and immersive visual experiences — like you're really there amidst all of the action — for the foreseeable future.

Dolby® Advanced Audio

In addition, media conversion between devices takes just minutes thanks to hardware acceleration streamlining this process at incredible speed.

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.

Intel Anti-Theft Technology
Wouldn't it be great if your computer could disable itself if it were ever lost or stolen? Thanks to Intel anti-theft technology, it can! Anti-Theft technology works by detecting suspicious activity, like repeated unsuccessful log-ins. Once activated, anti-theft's tamper-resistant protection puts your computer into theft mode without harming your data to keep your information secure should your system fall into the the wrong hands. According to Intel, your system will be protected, "even if the OS is reimaged, the boot order is changed, a new hard-drive is installed, or the laptop is disconnected from the network." Once recovered, you can easily reactivate your system.

Intel My WiFi
Intel My WiFi is an easy way to wirelessly share content. The My WiFi user interface serves as a means of connecting your computer directly with up to eight WiFi devices anywhere and lets you stay connected to the Internet at the same time. It's never been easier to sync your devices, send or receive content, or print all via a wireless connection.

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 Fast Ethernet Network
A highspeed pathway to send your data to other devices networked to your computer enabling you to share files and Internet access.

Cyberlink PowerDVD
Cyberlink calls PowerDVD the "ultimate universal media player." Features vary by version but the general idea is to provide users with a means to play any media format from DVD to social media including movies, music, and photos. Some versions enable high-quality HD and 3D media, including Blu-ray. Other versions are more basic. Features can include full-screen mode, choice of controls and formats, language kits, and the ability to control PowerDVD from a variety of portable devices.
