Howard Computers Revolutionizes Desktop Computing by Being the First to Offer Intel’s Centrino Technology in a Desktop

Share Article

While Centrino technology has been a key component of many notebooks, Howard Computers is the first manufacturer to offer it in a traditional desktop PC with its ELVM Centrino Desktop.

Howard Computers®, a leading manufacturer and reseller of computer hardware and related equipment, today introduced a unique system that melds the power and performance of a traditional desktop PC with the sleek, ultra-thin form factor of a notebook. Driven by Intel’s Centrino technology, the ELVM Centrino Desktop is a quiet, low power yet high performance system that enables users to work without the hassle of antennas, cables, and cards.

While the initial focus is on the Centrino technology, Howard believes customers will quickly notice the minimal amount of power required by the ELVM. “This system uses around 30 watts of power compared to the typical idle power of 130 watts for a traditional, full-size computer,” said Tim Beech, Howard’s Manager of Desktop and Mobile Systems. He added, “This reduced power consumption can lead to significant savings in environments requiring many PCs.” An additional benefit that the ELVM offers organizations is that they will no longer have to maintain separate software load images, one for desktops and another for notebooks. This factor could also notably reduce operational costs for customers while streamlining processes.

“For years, our customers have grown accustomed to our superior products, services, and customer support, said Everett E. ‘Robbie’ Robinson, IV, Howard Computers’ Marketing Communications Manager. “However, with this new product, we have the opportunity to capture the attention of the entire industry with this truly innovative product. And while others may soon offer similar products, we are confident our ELVM Centrino Desktop will retain the titles of both ‘first’ and ‘best’ in class.”
