  note:
Multicore is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications necessarily benefit from use of this technology. Performance and clock frequency vary depending on application workload and hardware and software configurations. Intel numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.
Intel Turbo Boost is based on maximum GHz for a single core.
Intel HD Graphics P530 and P630 supports workstation-specific graphics drivers for improved compatibility and performance on select professional applications, compared to Intel HD Graphics 530 and 630.

  note:
Maximum memory capacities assume Windows 64-bit operating systems or Linux. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, memory above 3 GB might not all be available due to system resource requirements.
Due to the non-industry standard nature of some third-party memory modules, only HP branded memory is recommended to ensure compatibility. If memory speeds are mixed, the system performs at the lower memory speed.
Intel Xeon E3, Core i3 and Pentium processors support either ECC or non-ECC memory; Intel Core i5/i7 processors only support non-ECC memory.
