The Z640 Series L9K29UT Minitower Workstation from HP delivers powerful performance in a 4U rackable minitower form factor and is designed for professionals who require high reliability. This model of the HP Z640 series of workstations does not come with a graphics card, which allows you to customize it with your own. Once a dedicated GPU is installed, the Z640 is designed for professionals who require high reliability and is well suited for tasks such as intensive graphics, 3D rendering, multimedia, and gaming, as well as science and engineering applications. The system is powered by a 3.5 GHz Intel Xeon E5-1620 v3 Quad-Core processor which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the CPU can deliver extra performance by increasing the clock speed up to 3.6 GHz utilizing Intel's Turbo Boost 2.0 technology.

The 8GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 ECC RAM allows the computer to run multiple applications simultaneously and also to access frequently-used files and programs. This system has a total of four memory slots, each of which supports 288-pin DIMM modules. As this RAM features ECC technology, it is also able to help detect and correct the most common kinds of internal data corruption.

For long term storage of your files, a 1TB 7200 rpm SATA hard drive offers quick access to your data. If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Z640 features 9 x USB 3.0 ports, 3 x USB 2.0 ports, and 2 x PS/2 ports. For users who wish to add additional components to the drive bays, the Z640 features two internal 3.5" drive bays and two external 5.25" drive bays. Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the integrated Realtek HD ALC221 outputs high definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers.

The Z640 Series L9K29UT Minitower Workstation includes a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, and a power cord. Its 925W power supply operates using 100-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Professional (64-bit), a Windows 10 Professional (64-bit) license is included.

9.5mm Slim SuperMulti DVD Burner
A 9.5mm Slim SuperMulti DVD Burner is included for reading and writing to a variety of DVD and CD media, including DVD±R, DVD±RW, DVD-RAM, and more
Gigabit Ethernet

9 x USB 3.0 Ports & 3 x USB 2.0 Ports
The Z640 Series L9K29UT features 9 x USB 3.0 and 3 x USB 2.0 ports that will allow you to connect external peripherals such as hard drives, printers, and memory card readers. At 5 Gb/s, USB 3.0 transfers data up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0, which operates at 480 Mb/s. USB 3.0's high-speed transfer rate helps to significantly reduce data transfer times, meaning you spend less time waiting and more time focusing on the task at hand.

While eight of the USB 3.0 and two of the USB 2.0 ports are external Type-A ports, please bear in mind that one of each is located internally. The internal USB 3.0 port is available by a 2x10 header and the internal USB 2.0 port is available with a single 2x5 header, which may be converted to a standard Type-A USB connector using the HP Internal USB Port Kit (EM165AA)
PCI & PCI Express Expansion Slots
For internal PCI and PCIe expansion, the L9K29UT has 2 x PCI Express Gen3 x16 slots (full-height, full-length, with extender), 1 x PCI Express Gen2 x4 (open-ended, full-height, full-length, with extender), 1 x PCI Express Gen3 x8 slot (open-ended, full-height, full-length, with extender), 1 x PCI Express Gen2 x1 slot (open-ended, full-height, half-length), and 1 x PCI 32-bit/33 MHz slot (full-height, full length, with extender).

Open-ended connectors allow a card with greater bandwidth (e.g. x16) to be physically installed into a lower bandwidth connector/slot
Power Supply
The 925W power supply is 90% energy efficient with wide ranging and active PFC. It will operate using 100-240 VAC currents at 50-60 Hz

Windows 10 Pro

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With it, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift
Windows 10 Pro
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for businesses users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications
