Key Facts/Features/Benefits _______________________________
Stable and Consistent Platform __________________________________________________
The Deskpro EN Series platform is designed to provide stability and consistency throughout its entire
product lifecycle. Proposed changes to system components, ROM, or software are closely evaluated to
ensure that such change is not only necessary but also implemented in a way that minimally impacts a
customer’s computing environment. Therefore, a specific Deskpro EN Series personal computer
configuration will demonstrate consistent performance and behavior throughout its entire individual
lifecycle. Additionally, different configurations within the Deskpro EN Series line will share similar
components such as underlying system board chip sets, video, and networking solutions, thus greatly
minimizing the likelihood of inconsistency. However, different microprocessors, revisions to the chipsets,
or functional ROM updates have the potential to affect software image consistency across platforms.

expandable to 256MB on Small Form Factor models and 384MB on Desktop or Minitower models. SCSdrive based models feature 32MB or 64MB of ECC SDRAM with Fault Prediction and Prefailure
Warranty.
SMART Hard Drives ____________________________________________________________
To satisfy the growing storage requirements of users today, the Deskpro EN Series features high
performance, high capacity Ultra ATA or Wide UltraSCSI hard drives. The drives incorporate Self
Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART) which monitors and warns of impending
problems on the drive before they occur. With advanced warning, it is possible to backup the drive to the
network or to tape before a failure occurs and data is lost. The hard drives are rated at a minimum of
10ms seek time / 5400 RPM platter speeds with 8ms seek time / 7200 RPM drives available, delivering
unbeatable performance in data storage and retrieval. Should an impending failure condition arise, the
SMART drives are covered under a Prefailure Warranty, which means that Compaq will replace the hard
drive free of charge.
The Ultra ATA hard drives also include Ultra ATA Integrity Monitoring. An Intelligent Manageability
Agent monitors the integrity of data transferred between the Ultra ATA hard drive and the system core
logic. If the agent detects excessive transmission errors, both the user and system administrator receive an
