The e-pc 42 comes Windows XP-ready and offers a fast 30-second boot time. The new desktop is also secure, offering the HP port control system, the HP lock and secured front USB ports. In addition, the e-pc 42 is versatile enough to stand horizontally or vertically, and with an all-in-two integration kit it can support 15" and 17" LCD monitors.
