Increasing Performance, Security, and Manageability on Desktops and Notebooks with Intel® Core™2 Processor with vPro™ Technology and Windows® 7
Technical decision makers are faced with many challenges in today’s economy: help users get more work done faster and with fewer difficulties, protect the network and individual systems from attacks or malicious code, and reduce administrative overhead and the associated costs. The underlying hardware platform can provide a foundation for making the best use of new software capabilities. Intel Core 2 processor with vPro technology complements the new Windows 7 operating system by building effective trusted computing and management mechanisms into the hardware.
The release of Windows 7 provides the ideal opportunity to realize the benefits of a PC refresh. By refreshing the PC fleet to new desktops and notebooks with Intel Core 2 processors with vPro technology, IT organizations can benefit from up to a 50 percent reduction in operational costs, do more with enhanced multi-tasking, and be more secure by avoiding the 53 percent increase in security incidences seen in four year old PCs. Intel vPro technology eases management of PCs, and when activated, can save 40 minutes or more of end user productivity during an operating system upgrade. In addition, new PCs can do even more with shorter boot times and new productivity tools.
