Embracing my New HP PC DC7700 at the Office =)

So for today here’s my story…Lately I’ve been busy setting up my new computer at the office, thank goodness! Atlast my wailing sacrifices on my PC’s aging performance would soon be put on halt. Yes i have a new baby now! The technician dropped by to my place yesterday and replaced my two year old desktop PC with a more powerful one. And am so proud that i even bragged it up to my co-officemates near my place just to show them how persuasive i was with the management =P hehe

So. Just to itemize it, Here’s my new PC Specs:

Running DxDiag to Command Prompt gives me system information of my PC..(For this blog i wont be able to show all the output since its very technical.. so just going for the basics…)

This is totally a lot of improvement for my work schedule.

There’s always more to a standard business desktop computer than meets the eye and i think this one is for me. =) Design choices and color can also influence a PC’s usability and reliability, and affect how much it costs to manufacturer and in turn, the asking price. HP’s dc7700 is aimed at the small office or the larger institution installing on a one-per desk basis just like where at my work right now

Now being sold at : $904.99 .The good thing is this PC is mine for free! =)
