HP (NYSE:HPQ) has unveiled two new energy-efficient business desktop PCs. The HP Compaq dc7800 Ultra-slim Desktop PC, with solid-state hard drive for improved reliability, and the Compaq dc5800 Business PC include a variety of environmentally-friendly features that allow them to qualify for the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) Gold registry. The EPEAT registry helps businesses evaluate and select technology products based on their environmental attributes.

Priced at $1258, the dc7800 Ultra-slim Desktop PC's solid-state hard drive provides near instantaneous access to data and eliminates moving parts, which are the main cause of electromechanical wear. It also offers a faster system start, better reliability, improved power efficiency, shock improvement and a smaller overall footprint. Starting as low as $579, the dc5800 Business Desktop PC, available in redesigned small form factor and microtower PC designs, offers a range of productivity tools and security features.

"HP's ongoing efforts to design for the environment have spanned decades," Alan Reed, vice president and general manager of personal systems group at HP, said in a statement.
