HP has unveiled a $569 (£360) mini-tower system aimed at small businesses and home office users looking for improved security and value.
The HP Pro 3130 system will appeal to customers in environments without the support of an IT department, according to Kirk Godkin, HP Americas business PC manager.
"When [small firms] go out looking for a new PC they want that PC to help them become more efficient, more productive and protect what is valuable," Godkin told V3.co.uk.
HP is offering sandboxing security protection, which isolates browser activity and helps prevent security breaches and infections.
Godkin noted that the protections are especially important for small business systems, which can often double as home and personal use computers.
The company is also stressing the value of the new models. The base $569 model sports 2GB of memory and a 160GB hard drive, plus the option to add a second drive and built-in RAID1 storage systems.
Each system ships with a three-year warranty on parts along with one year of labour and on-site support.
Godkin also stressed the energy saving components, estimating that the system could save up to $40 (£25) per year on energy consumption over older models.
HP hopes to cash in on growing demand for enterprise systems. Analysts have suggested that spending on IT hardware will increase over 2009, while Microsoft reported particularly strong business sales in its quarterly report.
