The HP Pavilion Elite m9600t is a line of high performance desktop PCs offered by HP designed for work and play. Powered by a choice of 3 Intel Core i7 processors with 4-core, 8-threaded technology and Intel Turbo Boost Technology helps you multitask with demanding apps up to 25% faster and 40% faster on highly threaded apps. Enhanced performance is provided by several mega triple-channel DDR3 800MHz SDRAM options and up to 1TB of space on a RAID-enabled SATA hard drive. When used for entertainment and media applications, the pre-installed software gives the ability to compress large video files, stream content to any internet-connected media player (including a cell phone or PDA) and perform backups to an online server. An optional tuner and personal video recorder will turn your PC into a TV, and there is an optional Blu-ray DVD writer/player which would be able to fully capitalize on the integrated Intel High Definition Audio with up to 7.1 surround sound.
