HP has unveiled the DC7600 business desktop PC series, which features Intel’s latest 945G chipset and support for its dual-core processors.

The new series comes in three flavours: an ultra-slim desktop, small form factor (SFF) model and convertible minitower. These PCs will be available with Intel Celeron D, Pentium 4 or Pentium D processors, while users can choose from Microsoft Windows XP Professional, XP Home, Suse Linux 9.3 and FreeDOS operating systems.

While the ultra-slim desktop version supports a maximum of 3GB DDR2 memory, while the SFF and convertible minitower versions support upto 4GB DDR2 memory. These PCs can also be ordered with optical drives ranging from CD-ROM drives to DVD writers with LightScribe disc-labelling technology.

The PCs feature Intel’s GMA 950 graphics chipset and support SMART III Serial ATA 3.0 Gb/s hard drives. All the PC models come embedded with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 security chip, used to create cryptographic keys and encrypt them. These keys, according to HP, can only be decrypted by the TPM, so that data security is maintained.

Earlier this month, Fujitsu-Siemens Computers and Dell announced new offerings for the SMB and corporate sector. FSC rolled out its Esprimo range of environment friendly PCs, which also support dual-core processors and run on Intel’s i945G chipset. Dell on the other hand, refreshed its OptiPlex range of corporate desktops, by adding two new entrants – the GX520 and GX620.
