Windows 10 also offers more built-in security features improving protection against viruses, phishing, and malware.

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.

Intel HD Graphics 5500
This is a mid-range graphics card offering improved performance over its predecessors. It has a 64/128 Bit memory bus width, and supports DirectX 11.2, OpenCL 2.0, and OpenGL 4.3. It also features Quick Sync technology. In a mobile environment, it shares RAM with the system

Intel Quick Sync Video

On the go it's a great way to enjoy some down time. At home, you can wirelessly send your movie to your awesome big-screen TV.

Intel® Turbo Boost 2.0
Just as Intel has released its next generation Core i-series processors, it also has improved its Turbo Boost technology with version 2.0. Automatically activated to increase processor performance to its highest state, Turbo Boost 2.0 enables the processor frequency to dynamically increase, based on demand, until maximum frequency is reached depending on the number of active cores. In addition, Turbo Boost 2.0 uses several algorithms working together to power, current, and temperature to ensure energy efficiency. For short periods of time, Turbo Boost 2.0 can even enable the processor to run at a higher power level than its rated upper power limit.

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 Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O
This VT-d technology takes VT-x capability a step further by providing support for I/O device virtualization helping to improve device performance. IT managers can benefit from improved system security and reliability, reduced downtime, and better use of data center resources.

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.

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 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.

Intel IPT Identity Protection Technology
Designed to provide another layer of online security, Intel IPT  works by partnering with websites to help keep your personal information safe when you log in to your favorite IPT-enabled sites like shopping, bill paying, banking, etc. Intel IPT verifies your log-in, confirms you're using a trusted device, and protects your account from being accessed without your recognized device.

Intel Small Business Advantage
Protect your business with Intel Small Business Advantage featuring enhanced security and software monitoring capable of alerting you to a system attack and creating an event log. A health center for after-hours data back up and maintenance tasks like OS updates and disk defragging can be performed when least disruptive. Enjoy added peace of mind from the USB port blocker so you control system access.

Intel Smart Response Technology
The perfect resource combination providing cost-effective, high-performance data storage solution. By enabling a small capacity solid state drive to be used in conjunction with a high-capacity hard drive, Intel Smart Response Technology offers faster system startup and application access, and great gaming performance.

Intel AES-NI
Advance Encryption Standard New Instructions AES-NI, is an encryption standard used by the U.S. government since 2001 and now is commonly used in software to protect network traffic, personal data, and corporate IT infrastructure. Intel processors use AES in addition to a set of six new instructions to enable hardware to do some of the work of AES, thereby accelerating its execution by three to 10 times compared with relying solely on software.

Intel Secure Key
Intel Secure Key is a feature designed to keep your data and personal information safe by strengthening encryption capability via a digital random number generator.

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.

Bluetooth® 4.0
Also known as Bluetooth Smart Ready, it takes wireless communication to a whole new level. First, it's compatible with a large number of devices like tablets, smart phones, and of course computers, but it's also compatible with TV remotes, and even appliances. All of these things will be controlled using apps, so the ability to turn on the lights or your oven before you get home will be as easy as picking up your cellphone. In addition, it uses considerably less power.
