New PC, New Workspace

Finally, I got to hands-on to the much awaited PC we saw in our laboratory.

Lahat ng offices, Computer Laboratories ay pinalitan na ng bagong Dell OptiPlex 390. So byebye na sa mga lumang computer na IBM at ACER.. At ang Compac na nasa Lab 3, stay ka lang...
Full Specification CREDIT: gratech

This unit runs a Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Operating System (LICENSED). It is great for multimedia project and test with its 1366 x 768 resolution with 787 MB total graphics memory, and of course, it is DirectX 10. It is powered by Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2120 CPU Dual Core Processor with a clock speed of 3.30 GHz, with a 2GB of RAM, it has 500GB Hard Drive Capacity, not bad for long time usage

Unfortunately,  wala itong Optical Drive para sa DVD/CD Burning and viewing. Mapipilitan ka talagang gumamit ng iyong headset dahil wala itong built-in speaker. This was preventing noise in the Computer Laboratories and offices, so you can listen media files with your headset or a speaker. 

UPS System
Its a good news to hear that it has a UPS system so that if ever the power fails,you have a time to save the work before the UPS is getting battery low.

PRELOADED APPS:
It has a Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus, Symantec Smart Security as Anti-virus. The ITC department installled some essential apps like VLC Media Player, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and other essentials needed. As of this time, they are asking a list from us to name all of the apps we need so that they can install it to the PC. More on PC Restrictions later...



A space friendly PC set

This PC has a HDMI port, VGA, LAN Port, 2 audio input, 2 audio output, and 6 USB 2.0 port..

It doesn't have a DVD drive, because it is a customized build request by the City Gov't
When I saw the unit at the first time, I am so surprised that the System Unit is smaller than the standard size of System Unit.  

Its a great PC on the students that are creating some heavy projects that needs a system specs, like us that having a Android Programming Development. 

RESTRICTION SA PC
Lingid naman sa ating kaalaman na kung may bagong units, kailangang alagaan ito ng mabuti. Kami dito sa Admin Bldg, pinagbabawalan kaming mag-install ng software (kahit ano man), at kung nanaisin, magbigay ka ng listahan sa ITC at sila na ang mag-iinstall. Dahil ang lahat ng PC na bago dito sa UMak ay protected ng iisang password para sa Admin. Napaka-basic ng pagse-set-up ng restriction nila sa PC na ito dahil wala namang 'something special' softwares ang ginamit upang mai-lock ito.


At ito pa, pinagbabawalan tayong mag-install ng cracked softwares, o mga peke na walang licenses. Ito ang mandato na inilabas ng Admin na bawal lagyan ng pekeng softwares ang mga PC na ito..

Kahit USB Disk Security, PHP Designer, Adobe Photoshop ay bawal. Papaano kaya gagawa ang mga taga-multimedia tech students na ang mga softwares nila ay kamamahal pa man din?

PRICING
Hindi kami maari magbigay eksaktong presyo na ito, dahil wala kaming pahintulot na ilabas ang impormasyong ito... Check niyo nalang sa Internet haha...

SAAN MAPUPUNTA ANG MGA LUMA?
Ang mga luma ay naka-imbak lamang sa ITC, wala pa kaming masyadong impormasyon kung saan ito mapupunta 

CONCLUSION
Ang mga bagong PC na binigay sa atin ng City Gov't ay dapat nating alagaa, wag abusuhin, wag sirain. Dahil napaka-mahal ang isang unit ng PC. Hindi biro yun. Dahil taon ang binibilang bago palitan ang mga PC sa lab natin...Kaya sana, alagain natin itong lahat.
