Lenovo has just released its latest nettop, the IdeaCentre C100. The C100 uses an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 2GB RAM, a 160GB hard drive, and includes a DVD burner. The display is a 20-incher, and and once Windows 7 launches, they’ll even sell a touchscreen model. You’ll have to settle for Windows Vista for the time being, and the price is about $400, with Wi-Fi and webcam as optional add-ons.
TPV Technology, known for their monitors, is developing an inexpensive all-in-one desktop PC. Called “nettops,” they will sell for about $400.00 to $600.00, according to the company’s chairman and CEO Jason Hsuan. They may even retail for about $300.00 after time. Working with smaller PC makers, the devices have 20-inch screens and should become available sometime this year. We certainly applaud any company that encourages others to come up with a fully functioning product at a price that the average Joe or Jane can afford.
