HP today introduced its first all-in-one PC as part of the enterprise-class HP Compaq 6000 Pro family.
The new HP Compaq 6000 Pro All-in-One Business PC delivers powerful performance, high-definition (HD) visuals and energy-saving features. Its one-cord design ensures out-of-the-box setup and serviceability, removes cable clutter and provides a more functional workspace in office cubicles and shared environments.
The HP Compaq 6000 Pro All-in-One includes a choice of Intel Core 2 Duo processors, Windows 7 Professional 32- or 64-bit operating system, up to 8 gigabytes (GB) of DDR3 memory, hard drives up to 1 terabyte and an optional 80-GB solid-state drive. Featuring a 21.5-inch diagonal full HD LED backlit HP BrightView LCD screen with dual display capability, the PC offers high-quality videoconferencing for face-to-face communication, maximized through Bluetooth wireless solutions.
The device is also offering a 16x Max SuperMulti optical drive and a slim-tray DVD burner with LightScribe, seven USB ports and an IEEE 1394 FireWire port. Additionally, the six-in-one memory card reader, optional MXM graphics and optional TV tuner offer enhanced multimedia flexibility.
For users who require added security, the PC also features PS/2 ports to allow users to disable USB ports on their PCs, while still using the PS/2 ports for the mouse and keyboard.
The HP Compaq 6000 Pro All-in-One offers easy access to components for simplified service and upgrades. Sectioned, removable panels on the back of the chassis allow administrators to easily service the PC without incurring additional downtime.
Businesses also can rely on remote PC access for secure hardware and software image stability through Intel Standard Manageability, reducing time spent on IT deployment. Users receive security benefits using Face Recognition for HP ProtectTools software with auto-login capabilities and the TPM 1.2-compliant embedded security chip. Internal intrusion monitoring sensors and optional HP security locks and cables help protect PCs from theft.
The HP Compaq 6000 Pro All-in-One is also compatible with VESA-compliant mounting solutions for wall mounts and articulating arms, features an HD webcam, dual-array microphone and premium stereo speakers.
The PC also comes standard with a full version of the HP SkyRoom videoconferencing collaboration tool ? a $100 value ? and is Microsoft Office Communicator certified. A trial version of HP Virtual Rooms also is available for interactive and easy face-to-face video chat.
