Questions and Answers

More Info

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.

500GB SATA Hard Drive
SATA stands for Serial Advanced Technology Attachment. This type of hard drive has an integrated controller which supports the drive. A SATA interface connects an ATA hard drive to the computer's motherboard. The advantage of SATA is speed, smaller cables, and it uses a separate bus. Smaller cables 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. What can you do with a 500GB Serial ATA hard drive? You can store up to 107,000 songs or 85,000 photos.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Nero 10 Essentials
This powerful application suite is designed with multimedia tools to help you with burning and backing up your files. Using Nero's intuitive Start Smart interface, you can quickly organize and prepare your files for for storage. BackItUp & Burn, lets you archive or retrieve your files with just a few simple steps. Nero 10 Essentials is a reliable, easy way to back up your data.
