Product Specifications

The e-PC is part of the HP professional line and therefore offers the same benefits in terms of ease of deployment, management, and support. With the e-PC, HP has re-invented the desktop PC as a smaller, simpler and more reliable device to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership and improve user comfort. HP has designed the e-PC using new technology. Over the years, new technology has been integrated into PCs while retaining some of the older technology. With the addition of improved processor performance and more powerful hard disk drives, it is obvious that the PC had to evolve to take these changes into account. Technology is not the only thing that has changed - the way people are using their PCs has also evolved. They want more simplicity, more reliability and better user comfort so that they stop worrying about their PCs and just use them. Reducing the Total Cost of Ownership is certainly the main incentive behind the need to change the design of PCs. The price you pay for a PC only represents a small portion of the time and money you will spend on it during its lifetime. HP took these needs into consideration when it designed the e-PC. Its solid performance will meet the needs of most users, and because it runs all types of operating systems, it will fit seamlessly into your existing IT infrastructure. The external power supply and optimized cooling make it a very quiet system, giving end-users more comfort. The HP e-PC is manufactured with the same quality standards as other HP PCs, but its design brings more reliability. This improved reliability directly translates into cost savings for the customer in terms of the support costs. While the benefit of a traditional PC is its expandability, one benefit of the e-PC is its "sealed box" concept. This is a real advantage for companies that want to reduce the cost of PCs through standardization. IT departments can control the PCs they deploy to make sure that no unauthorized hardware changes are made. Because of its simplicity and innovative design, the HP e-PC is much smaller than a traditional PC. Its versatility means it fits almost anywhere - you can place it vertically, horizontally, integrated with an LCD monitor, or even rack it in the optional mounting brackets.
