HP recommends Windows® 7.
vPro Technology - Some functionality of this technology, such as Intel Active management technology and Intel Virtualization technology, requires additional 3rd party software in
order to run. Availability of future "virtual appliances" applications for Intel vPro technology is dependent on 3rd party software providers. Compatibility with future "virtual
appliances" and Microsoft Windows 7 operating system is yet to be determined.
64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers and applications enabled for Intel®
64architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on your hardware and
software configurations. See intel.com/info/em64t for more information. Dual Core is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers will
necessarily benefit from the use of this technology. Maximum memory capacities assume 64-bit operating systems.
A 60-day Virtual Room trial is included. Internet access required. Requires purchase of license afterwards. See hp.com/go/connectsolutions for details.
HP ProtectTools requires Microsoft Windows.
HP File Sanitizer and Disk Sanitizer are suitable for the use cases outlined in the DOD 5220.22-M Supplement.
Wireless access point and Internet service required and sold separately.
Privacy Manager requires a fingerprint reader for all users involved in an encrypted IM session.
HP Power Assistant enhances management of the system energy requirements and enables users to take control of their power consumption for a reduced impact on the
environment. Power calculations and cost calculations are estimates. Results will vary based on variables, which include information provided by the user, time PC is in different
power states (on, standby, hibernate, off), time PC is on battery or AC, hardware configuration, variable electricity rates, and utilities provider. HP advises customers to use
information reported by HP Power Assistant for reference only and to validate impact in their environment. Environmental calculations were based on U.S. EPA eGrid 2007 data
found at epa.gov/egrid/. Regional results will vary. Requires Microsoft Windows.
EPEAT® Gold where HP registers commercial desktop products. See epeat.net for registration status in your country.
Meeting the industry definition of 'BFR/PVC-free' per the iNEMI Position Statement on "Low Halogen" Electronics. Plastic parts incorporated into the chassis generally contain < 1000
ppm (0.1%) of bromine or chlorine. Printed circuit board and substrate laminates generally contain < 1500 ppm (0.15%) of total bromine and chlorine. Service parts after purchase
may not be BFR/PVC-free. Power supply, power cords, keyboard, mouse, and DVI-to-VGA adapter are not BFR/PVC free.
Service levels and response times for HP Care Pack Services may vary depending on your geographic location. Service starts from date of hardware purchase. Restrictions and
limitations apply. HP Care Pack Services extend service contracts beyond the standard warranties. To choose the right level of service for your HP product, use the HP Care Pack
Services Lookup Tool at hp.com/go/lookuptool. Additional HP Care Pack Services information by product is available at hp.com/services/carepack.
Maximum memory capacities assume Windows 64-bit operating systems or Linux. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, memory above 3 GB may not all be available due to
system resource requirements.
For hard drives, GB = 1 billion bytes; 1 TB = 1 trillion bytes. Actual formatted capacity is less. Up to 16 GB (for Windows 7) of disk space is reserved for the system recovery software.
Options and accessories sold separately. Availability varies by country.
System may require upgraded and/or separately purchased hardware to take full advantage of Windows 7 functionality. Not all features are in all editions of Windows 7. See
microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/ for details.
Includes reduced functionality versions of Word and Excel. Purchase of Product Key required to activate full Office 2010 suite available at participating resellers/retailers and
