Of course, the 2011 Holiday Special Desktop model is a Modular PC which means it will grow with you for years to come.
This year’s model includes a number of new technologies that offer amazing future growth potential:
- AMD’s New 8-Core Zambezi Processor
- 16 GB of High Speed DDR3 Memory
- 2 TB of Hard Drive Storage with Adaptive Intelligence Technology™
- The Safe & Stored Backup System™
- 23″ LED High Definition Display with Speakers
- Keyboard and Mouse
- Blu-ray / DVD-RW Combo Drive
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
AMD Zambezi 8-Core Processor
This year AMD set a new world record when their 8-core Zambezi processor (codename Bulldozer) was overclocked to an amazing 8.47 GHz.
Of course they used liquid helium to keep it cool. If you don’t have an liquid helium handy we think you will find that 8-cores running at over 3 GHz each will be more than enough for even the most demanding user.
Adaptive Intelligence Hard Drive Technology™
Schrock Innovations is the only computer maker in the world to offer a new hard drive technology called Adaptive Intelligence™ .
Solid state hard drives have no moving parts and have been proven to dramatically increase the speed and responsiveness of a PC. However their high cost coupled with reliability issues at times makes them prohibitive to many users.
Adaptive Intelligence Technology™ offers the best of both worlds by combining a 4 GB solid state drive with a high-speed 500GB rotating disk hard drive. Adaptive Intelligence learns which files you use most often and saves copies of them on the solid state partition for fast access next time.
The result is solid-state performance with the cost effectiveness and reliability of a rotating disk hard drive. Learn more about Adaptive Intelligence.
Safe and Stored™ Backup System
The Schrock-exclusive Safe and Stored™ Backup System eliminates the need for clumsy external hard drives or backup DVDs because you always have a complete backup stored right inside your Modular PC!
The Safe & Stored™ Backup System takes a weekly (or more frequently if you prefer) complete image of your hard drive and saves it to a second hard drive installed inside your Modular PC.
If your main hard drive ever fails, a mirror-image of your programs, settings, devices and data can be restored to a new drive like nothing ever happened! Learn more about the Safe & Stored Backup System.
The 2011 Holiday Special Desktop is a Massive Value
The 2011 Holiday Special Desktop is by far the most advanced computer we have ever built at Schrock Innovations.
This machine is so cutting edge that Schrock is the only computer maker offering much of the technology contained in this system.
The closest thing Dell can build to this machine is a $6,500 high-end performance system.
If you have your heart set on 8-cores of performance you can look at a high-end Apple Power Mac equipped with dual 4-core processors that retails for a cool $5,500 for the tower alone.
Compare those prices to the 2011 Holiday Special available while supplies last for only $1,499.99 and you will understand why we can only build 150 of these systems this year.
