Hewlett-Packard yesterday announced a range of additions and improvements to its corporate desktop and workstation line up.
The Vectra series of desktops has been widened to include models based on 350MHz and 400MHz Pentium II processors using the latest Intel chipset, the 440BX AGP.
In addition, the Kayak workstation line has been given three new models: the XA, the XU and the XW, all featuring dual processor capabilities.
The XW has been designed as a high-end NT graphics workstation and features HP's own Visualize fx4 high performance graphics adaptor.
All the new machines will feature HP's new MaxiLife system monitoring technology. This system monitors critical system components and delivers diagnostic information via a small LCD panel housed on the front of the system casing. This system allows support staff to obtain important system information without intruding on the running of the machine, and can even be used while the system is powered down, though it does not feed diagnostic information back over the network.
Other manageability features in the new machines include remote on/off capabilities and the latest version of HP's TopTools system management software. The Kayak models also include HP FastRAID SCSI technology.
HP will pre-install both Windows NT 4 and 95, allowing the user to choose which system to keep on the initial system setup.
The new models will be available in June. Pricing has not yet been announced.
