Stormy Cloud: Murphy’s At Work Today

Meh, our Canadian suppliers are 1 for three today:


The fourth supplier we deal with primarily for Intel Server Systems (EPSD) product is ASI Canada because they can transfer up from their Freemont, CA warehouse while the others order direct and we end up waiting.

We are looking for information on the HP Omni27 product that looks absolutely amazing for a 27” All-in-One.

HP’s site absolutely stinks for product information:



By stinks we mean that there is no link to be seen to product specifications other than the silly (IMNSHO) product video links.

When we click on the HPShopping link we get:


Now we’re batting 1 in 5.

A Bing Search gets us to the product support page.

And, just what brought this search about?


A client of ours has a number of the original 27” TouchSmart PCs. This one has a bum hard disk in it so we dropped an Intel 80GB 320 Series SSD and loaded Windows 8 Professional on it.

Wow ...

This OS is at home on a 27” touch capable display. Now, if only we can find out whether the Omni 27 PC is available in our channel! :)

Now to run BurnInTest Pro to see if the rest of the machine is okay beyond the hard disk.

Oh, and Wow ... just wow on Windows 8 and touch. :)
