Product Specifications

Hewlett Packard's Vectra VE8 is one of the best long-term investments you can make in a managed PC for your business. The Vectra VE8 offers the high performance you expect from an HP product, and leaves plenty of room for upgrading to future technologies. The 128K of L2 cache in the new Celeron processor makes a world of difference from its cacheless predecessor. It isn't just that the new Celeron has L2 cache at all; it also runs the cache at full processor clock speed, instead of at half clock speed as per the Pentium II. That puts the performance of this 333MHz Celeron truly on a par with that of a 333MHz PII, and at a much lower cost to the consumer. The new Celeron with 128K L2 cache is not just an alternative business processor; it's a very compelling and viable alternative. 32MB of SDRAM comes installed in the Vectra VE8, and is expandable to as much as 384MB using the system's three 168-pin DIMM sockets. The Vectra's 3.2GB EIDE hard drive provides plenty of storage space for individual users. It features Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART), which helps prevent disk failures before they occur. The days of wimpy graphics capability in a Basic PC are gone. The Vectra VE8 delivers integrated AGP graphics using a Matrox MGA-G100 controller with 4MB of fast SGRAM memory. This graphics accelerator generates True Color (16M colors) images at 1280x1024 resolutions, and its high refresh rates help keep your eyes from tiring too quickly. Just how long-term an investment is the Vectra VE8? Well, unlike its predecessors, it uses Intel's 440BX chipset, which supports any Slot 1 processor in the Celeron or Pentium II families. The chassis has an extra internal drive bay, making it easy to add a second hard drive when you find yourself running out of storage space. Two USB ports prepare the system for use with any USB peripheral. And a coupon for a free upgrade to Windows 98 comes with the package. Don't trap yourself into having to replace entire office computers every couple of years. Get HP's Vectra VE8, which will give you top performance today and plenty of opportunities for inexpensive, incremental upgrades to meet the needs of your business in the future. A three year warranty on the Vectra VE8 ensures that your investment is protected by Hewlett Packard's renowned service and support.
