G-Technology HP ProDesk 400 G2.5

By Dermot - 16th Dec 2015 | 8 views

The HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 is light, neat and powerful. With a 44 per cent reduction in size from the previous generation, it takes up much less space without sacrificing the computing power and the security needed for business computing. And with a super-powered i7 processor and up to 16GB RAM, it can meet even the most demanding of home and office needs.

<h3>iMac Retina: Seeing is believing</h3> <h4 class=”subheadMIstyles”>Now in colossal and ‘ginormous’!</h4>

<strong>The idea behind iMac has never wavered:</strong> To craft the ultimate desktop experience. The best display, paired with high-performance processors, graphics and storage — all within an incredibly thin, seamless enclosure. And that commitment continues with the all-new 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K display. Like the revolutionary 27-inch 5K model, it delivers such spectacular image quality that everything else around you seems to disappear, adding up to the most immersive iMac experience yet — and another big, beautiful step forward.

<h3 class=”subheadMIstyles”>Retina display</h3>

<strong>More than just a display;  a vision.</strong>

Accuracy. Brightness. Clarity. Regardless of how you measure the quality of a display, Retina is in a class by itself.

Text is so sharp, you’ll feel like you’re reading email and documents on a printed page. And with a new, wider-colour gamut, the Retina display is able to deliver 25 per cent more available colours. So every photo and video you see appears even more true to life.

For the 4K camera in your pocket, the new iPhone 6s shoots gorgeous 4K video. And on iMac with Retina display, both iMovie and Final Cut Pro give you the resolution — and responsiveness — to edit in 4K, turning your footage into a phenomenal viewing experience.

<h3 class=”subheadMIstyles”>Design</h3>

<strong>Innovation from edge to cutting edge.</strong>

An incredible amount of engineering was required to bring the Retina display to the iMac family. Witness a design that is just 5mm at its edge, yet entirely capable of making everything around you fade into the distance. This ensures that nothing gets between you and your favourite content. Seamless and beautiful, iMac with Retina display is an elegant addition to your workspace.

<h3 class=”subheadMIstyles”>Fusion Drive</h3>

<strong>Storage that is lightning fast and super smart.</strong> Storage is about space. But it is also about speed and performance. A Fusion Drive gives you the best of both worlds. This innovative storage technology intelligently combines speedy flash storage with a high-capacity hard drive. Your frequently-used apps, documents and photos stay on the faster flash storage, while infrequently-used items move to the hard drive. And as the system learns how you work, you will experience faster application launching and quicker file access.

Fusion Drive can be configured with up to 3TB of storage. But for those who want the ultimate performance, there is an all-flash option that is now up to 2.5 times faster than the previous version.

<h3 class=”subheadMIstyles”>Performance</h3>

<strong>Built for speed and everything else.</strong>

Faster and more powerful than ever, the 27-inch iMac is equipped with a sixth-generation Intel Core processor and the latest AMD high-performance graphics. And the 21.5-inch iMac features a fifth-generation Intel Core processor and enhanced Intel Iris Pro Graphics. Both deliver stirring visual effects with maximum impact — at maximum speed.

<h3 class=”subheadMIstyles”>Apple accessories</h3>

<strong>Redesigned. </strong>

<strong>Rechargeable. Remarkable.</strong>

The all-new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2 have been redesigned to make every interaction feel amazing.

From a built-in rechargeable battery to a new lower profile, they have been enhanced to deliver more comfort and functionality than ever before.

<h3 class=”subheadMIstyles”>Connectivity</h3>

<strong>Fast connections for high performance.</strong>

iMac is astonishingly thin. But it is jam-packed with advanced technology. Two Thunderbolt 2 ports come as standard on all iMac models and deliver incredibly fast data transfer for external drives and cameras. Four USB 3 ports give you plenty of options for connecting peripherals, including your printer, video devices and more. And with ultra-fast three-stream wi‑fi and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology, you are instantly connected to all your favourite content.

<h3 class=”subheadMIstyles”>OS X El Capitan</h3>

<strong>The world’s most advanced desktop operating system.</strong>

OS X is what makes a Mac a Mac. Not only is it designed to be intuitive and easy to use, but it is also engineered to take full advantage of the Retina display, so you will see everything on your desktop with stunning clarity.

It features an incredible collection of apps you will use and love every day.

<h3 class=”subheadMIstyles”>Built-in apps</h3>

<strong>Our best built-in apps. The best they’ve ever looked.</strong>

Every new Mac comes with Photos, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers and Keynote. So you can be creative right from the start. You also get great apps for email, surfing the web, sending texts and making FaceTime calls.


<strong><em>Prices vary depending on specifications.</em></strong>
