HP PCs Meet Energy Star 4.0 Requirements
Hewlett-Packard has released the first business PCs configurable to meet the hardware standards of Energy Star 4.0 – the new energy-efficiency specification from the EPA which will go into effect on July 20, 2007, the company announced.
HP lab tests have found that configuring PCs with the optional 80 percent efficient power supplies, a component of the EPA’s new regulations, along with the other Energy Star 4.0 hardware requirements can reduce total system power consumption as much as 52 percent, translating into an average annual cost savings ranging from $6 to $58 per PC, according to HP.
Select HP Compaq dc5700 and dc7700 business desktop PCs meeting the Energy Star 4.0 hardware specifications are available now and feature Intel Core 2TM Duo processors, Microsoft Windows XP Pro, 80 GB hard drives, 1 GB of memory and DVD/CD-RW combo drives, starting at $899 and $959, respectively.
Configurations are also available for the HP Compaq dc5750 business desktop with AMD Athlon processors, Microsoft Windows XP Pro, 80 GB hard drives, 512 MB of memory and DVD/CD-RW combo drives, starting at $609.
