HP Launches Second Desktop in E-PC Line

The SMB e-PC for small and medium-sized businesses has a 15-inch, flat-panel monitor and is only one-quarter the size of a traditional desktop PC, HP said in a written statement. Other features include HP USB (Universal Serial Bus) e-modem, Web-based services and integrated electronic services, such as a keyboard with one-touch access to the Internet.

The SMB e-PC follows the launch earlier this year of the first in the e-PC line, the e-Vectra, aimed at the corporate user. HP's release said the company has changed the name of the e-Vectra to the HP corporate e-PC to make it easier for customers to identify the product line, which HP said is intended to simplify and redefine the commercial-computing environment.

Prices for the SMB e-PC start at $US849 for a system running a 633-MHz Intel Celeron processor, 64MB of memory, 10GB of storage, Microsoft's Windows 98 operating system and an e-modem. The HP corporate e-PC model starts at $US659. Like the HP corporate e-PC, the SMB e-PC bundles diagnostic software tools called e-DiagTools.

HP also launched a range of USB accessories for the SMB e-PC on Tuesday aimed at enabling customisation for specific business tasks. The accessories include a wireless LAN (local area network) adapter and small business access point based on the 802.11b standard that allows shared Internet access for up to 15 e-PCs, a compact flash reader for fast image and data transfer and a CD writer.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
