  • HP Z240 Series Tower Workstation

    The Z240 Series Tower Workstation from HP delivers powerful performance in a tower form factor and is designed for professionals who require high reliability. With the capabilities to operate in immersive work environments and handle 24x7x365 workloads, the Z240 delivers processor and graphics technologies, as well as scalability to meet your business needs, in a compact yet expandable tower.

    This system is powered by a 3.6 GHz Intel Core i7-7700 Quad-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the CPU can be overclocked to 4.2 GHz using Intel's Turbo Boost technology. The 16GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 non-ECC RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently used files and programs. While the current memory configuration is 2 x 8GB, there are four memory slots that will allow the RAM to be upgraded to 64GB, using one 16GB module in each of the four memory slots. For storage of your files, a 512GB Z Turbo Drive G2 PCIe SSD offers quick access to your data.

    If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Z240 features six USB 3.0 Type-A ports, four USB 2.0 Type-A ports (one of which doubles as a charging port), and two PS/2 ports. For users who wish to add additional components or upgrade the drive bays, the Z240 has a total of six expansion bays - two 5.25" half-height external bays, one 9.5mm slim optical drive bay, two 3.5" internal bays, and one 2.5" internal bay. There are also five PCIe expansion slots. The dedicated NVIDIA Quadro P1000 graphics card has 4GB of GDDR5 memory and delivers a sharp, clear picture, while allowing for video to be output at resolutions up to 5120 x 2880 @ 60 Hz using its four mini DisplayPort 1.4 outputs. Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the integrated Realtek HD ALC221-VB audio codec outputs high definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers.

    The Z240 Series Tower Workstation includes an HP Business Slim USB keyboard, an HP USB optical mouse, and a power cord. It operates at 90-269 VAC at 47-66 Hz. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Pro (64-Bit).

    Windows 10

    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.
    Cortana
    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 Microsoft Edge, 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.
  • HGST 6TB Deskstar 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS Drive Kit

    Designed with an MTBF rating of 1 million hours for use in 24/7 always-on environments, the 6TB Deskstar 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS Drive Kit from HGST features a 6TB storage capacity, a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, a 128MB cache, a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, and a 3.5" form factor. While this drive is intended for use in NAS and business-critical environments, it is also suitable for general use at home and can store files such as music, movies, photos, documents, and more. Furthermore, Rotational Vibration Safeguard (RVS) helps anticipate drive disturbances and counteracts them, thus improving performance under strenuous conditions.

    General Features

    Rotational Vibration Safeguard
    Rotational Vibration Safeguard has its own vibration sensors placed at the edges of the hard disk and on the edges of the drive's circuit board. If these sensors feel a vibration rippling through the drive, they can feed forward a signal to the actuator that controls the head's position. The actuator them compensates for the disturbance, counteracting it with an equal and opposite force. In this way, the head is able to "ride" the vibration and stay on track.
