As with many Compaq models you have the option of setting up your PC as a tower or dektop, and this Evo is one. In addition, you are also able to change the position of the CD/DVD & Floppy drives as required. So whether the case is standing on edge or lying on its side, the CD-ROM and DVD drives have their typical horizontal placement.
HP also includes an extensive array of sophisticated manageability tools for system administrators, the Intelligent Manageability software suite encompasses tools for such remote management activities as system diagnostics via a Web browser, system wake-up, and the ability to disable USB and serial ports and to lock down the BIOS to secure boot-up sequences. The keyboard has programmable hot-keys for accessing the Internet.
The base configuration of the D510 has integrated graphics. And for businesses looking for a system that can grow, this version of the D510 Convertible has three open PCI slots and two open drive bays: one for another internal hard drive, the other for a removable media device, such as an additional optical drive. Adding or removing drives from the bays is especially simple: Just unhinge a bright green latch. In a nice design twist, unhinging the latch also allows the 40GB hard drive to rotate 90 degrees for easy serviceability.
