When it comes to business, there are two things a PC needs to deliver: compact performance and a price point that won’t break the bank. The new HP Pro 3400 Mini tower PC from distributor Drive Control Corporate (DCC) hits the mark on both counts with its super compact form factor, the latest in processor technology and ultra-stylish efficiency priced to fit even the tightest of business budgets.
“While the pricing may lead you to believe this is an entry level desktop, the features speak differently. With the new Intel Pentium available right now and Core i processors available shortly offering dual cores and two threads as standard and the option of up to two cores and four threads, along with more DDR3 RAM and up to 1TB of hard disk space standard, all packaged in a brand new sleek and sexy piano black box at a starting price of just R5, 299.00 including an 18.5” HP monitor, what’s not to love?” says Deon Botha, HP Personal Systems Group and Magnetic Media Business Unit Manager at DCC.
“This PC is ideal for the home office, SOHO (small or home office) and SMB (small to medium business) user, providing all of the processing power and speed needed in a great looking, space efficient package that fits neatly into even the most crowded spaces at a conservative price point. You can even put the Mini tower on a shelf out of the way, and thanks to an intelligent design the USB ports and audio plugs are easily accessible on the front panel,” he adds.
If the stellar standard specs don’t meet your needs, HP Pro 3400 also comes ready to configure with extra memory slots, PCI Express (PCIe) slots and 3.5”/5.25” hard drive expansion bays and on-site warranty options. Optional wireless networking increases efficient space usage for a cable-free workspace – simply plug in the power cord and you’re ready to go. The HP Pro 3400 also comes with preinstalled software like HP ProtectTools and a trial Antivirus Suite, so you get a PC equipped to make an impact right out of the box.
“The HP Pro 3400 Mini tower PC offers all of the functionality you need and none of the superfluous things you don’t. This means that the price is right to give you the power you need to complete business tasks, without being inflated by fancy extras that have no application to your business. All of the tools and tasks your business needs, from email, word processing, Internet and multimedia to business tasks like multiple excel sheets and line of business applications like Pastel can run without a hitch, enhancing business productivity and keeping you in budget,” Botha concludes.
