The HP Compaq DC5750 computer is the quintessential business computer that would also work beautifully in your home (or home business!). In Hp's boring business-speak the 5750 was "Designed to meet the needs of customers, across all market segments, looking for a stable solution to cover mainstream business needs. [It was] Created using industry leading Design for Environment standards. Upgradeable, recyclable and energy efficient."
In fact, it's pretty much everything you'd need in a computer: a medium-sized PC that can sit horizontally or as a tower. It's got a dual-core 64-bit capable processor meaning that it can handle anything that you throw at it. Two video connectors in the back means that you can connect two monitors to it right out of the box. And it's equipped with AMD's "Cool and Quiet" technology, which means that the processor dynamically adjusts how much power it used by what you're doing, and the processor fan adjusts to these needs. What this means is that your computer doesn't need to be at full-throttle when you're writing a document or sending email, so it throttles back, conserving electricity and operating more quietly. When it needs the power it throttles up. Very cool (literally)!
These computers were purchased at a government auction; their COA (Certificate of Authenticity or a tag representing your operating system license) is for Windows XP, so they will ship with fully configured and updated Windows XP, but you'll note in the pricing options that they can be updated to Windows 7 or even 8. FYI since the processor if 64-bit capable, that means that it can "see" and use more than 3 GB's of RAM memory (Windows XP 32-bit is limited to 3). Windows 7 and 8 work better with more memory, something to keep in mind (these systems can take 8 GB's maximum). Here are the specs as shipped:
These computers are clean, tested and verified working. The operating system (Windows XP) is patched and up-to-date. Our standard suite of productivity software is included so the computer works right out of the box with nothing else needed.
