Windows 7: What a drag

What a drag

I am in the market for a new dektop. I was looking at this HP model. The one thing that was not clear is whether there are Sata III ports on the mobo. So I called HP to find out. After 2 hours later and talking to 5 guys I stiii do not know. They did not even understand my question - I think.

Does anybody know whether there are Sata III ports? I need at least one port for my new Crucial M4 SSD.

I searched in 10 websites for specs even in my area,but i can see only sata 2.

Nothing about sata 3.

Ports 2UB 2.0 Front I/O, 2USB 3.0 HD, HM Top I/O

Edit: Ok usb 3 in specs.

Though if you notice in the upgades for Secondary Hard Drive is:

500GB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive
1TB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive

Nothing more.

I will check more websites in my area.

Thanks for going thru the trouble. I came out empty handed too on my research.

WHS,
Check out the reviews (44 of them) and see if you can't pose the question there or e-mail them.
Tried to find all the specs on your desktop I came up lame.

This is what I found at HP.> Product search results

There are two 1000 series and two 1100 series listed.
None have Sata 6.0Gbs.
All have Sata 3.0Gbs and Sata-1 as HP has marked them.
How many each is not marked.
The 1100 has at least 2 Sata 3.0Gbs as you can buy it with two HDD's installed.

Thanks Dennis and Mike. I sent them an email. But I am afraid you are right. I probably will have to look elsewhere. I will try Gateway.

There is no one in your area that would assemble your parts?

If I ordered everything there are a couple of privately owned shops locally that would assemble for me.
I wouldn't want to spend the extra to do so but if necessary I would. I would rather use parts I want over a HP or Dell.
Just a thought.

Asus also sells assembled PC's on this side of the pond. Not a recommendation I have never dealt with Asus assembled PC's.
Only their parts which I like.
I don't know if they are sold in the EU or not.

WHS,
Be more than happy to put it all together for you. Just make sure you get me a couple of rolls of
Duct Tape and some crazy glue.

I promise not to promise or guarantee it will work.
There is no fee for this professional style of worksmanship!

Shipping costs from the States would be outlandish.
It was going to cost me $50 to ship a 3lb. normal size item by Post from Germany to U.S. three years ago.
$150 UPS.
The items were only $40.
Needless to say I did not buy the items.

Plus the chance of damage during shipping. Then what do you do?
