HP Compaq dc7800 Integrated Work Center Review


Of course the whole "zero footprint" thing is an exaggeration. True, the HP Compaq dc7800 Ultra-Slim Desktop doesn't touch your desktop when it's riding piggyback on the company's L1906i 19-inch LCD monitor. But the monitor takes some desk space, as do...

And if you don't want to mess with mounting brackets, its desktop footprint is just as small if you put the PC on your desk and the monitor on top of it

The HP Compaq DC7800 expands the idea of what a small-form-factor desktop can be and do. As long as you never need to expand it, you should be all set.

Above-average performance, Great warranty coverage

Extremely limited expandability, Not for gaming

HP Compaq dc7800 (GV709PA) Ultra-Slim Desktop PC

Size, quiet, easy-access chassis

No upgrade options

A nice example of notebook technology in a desktop PC, HP's Ultra slim form factor PC is a good choice for space conscious businesses. There is enough power to get by in everyday tasks and the system runs quietly, too.

HP Compaq dc7800p Ultra Slim Desktop


HP raises the bar again with its latest ultra small form factor desktop systems.

. The key thing to remember is, unless you run a large or very spread out IT department, the benefits are going to be limited and you'd be better off saving some money and going for the none-vPro version.

HP dc7800 desktop PC review


Long gone are the days when PCs were dull, gray towers.While performance is still the most important factor, design and style have become increasingly important, as has form factor and size.

HP's dc7800 Small Form Factor PC has all the power a business user will need, but it's desktop orientation mitigates some of the size advantage of going to a small form factor. Still, it would be a good option for the business looking to save a little...

Product Specifications

The HP 4X DDR IB Switch Module for HP BladeSystem c-Class is a double wide switch module for the c-Class enclosure. It is based on the Mellanox 24-port InfiniScale III 4X DDR InfiniBand switch chip. The HP 4X DDR IB Switch Module for HP BladeSystem c-Class provides 24 InfiniBand 4X DDR ports with 20 Gbps port-to-port connectivity. The ports are arranged as 16 downlinks to connect up to 16 blade servers in the enclosure, and 8 uplinks to connect to the external InfiniBand switches to build an InfiniBand fabric. All links conform to InfiniBand Trade Association (IBTA) specifications. A subnet manager is required to manage and control an InfiniBand fabric. The subnet manager can be provided by either on a rack-mount InfiniBand switch with an embedded fabric manager (also known as internally managed switch) or a host-based subnet manager software on a server.
