The E1505 can be customised to the specs of up to a 2.0GHz Core Duo, Windows Media Center Edition 2005, 2GB of DD2 SDRAM, 15.4 inch WSXGA (1680 x 1050) display, 120GB drive and dual layer DVD burner. Not sure when will it come out, but look out for it.

ATI HD ATSC OTA and dual analog tuners, dual layer DVD-RW burner with lightscribe. At $1000, it is definately cheaper than the predecessor, the z555. It already comes with a Media Center Edition Update Rollout 2 and offers quieter performance. Expect this product to hit the shores soon.

Shuttle X100 mini desktop PC

The Shuttle X100 mini desktop PC is a small PC that works even better than a laptop. It’s small, but small enough to fit a Intel Core Duo mobile processor, ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics and a DVI-out, along with a SPDIF multichannel digital audio. It does have 250GB of hard disk space and 512MB of RAM. Even so, it reads most memory cards and has plenty of Firewire and USB connectivity. It is unsure when will this PC be launched.

Matrox Extio F1400 Workstation

Matrix Extio F1400 is a top end remote compter that allows connectivity of four monitors, a keyboard and a mouse to be seperated from their host computer by 820 feet of fiber-optic cable. It’s a great idea to use your computer in the comfort of your home without being there. This would definately be advantageous to those who prefer the cosy and quiet surroundings of a house, rather than being in a noisy datacenter with whirling fans and the heat produced by a workstation. Expect them to be available in the 2nd quarter this year.

However, the latest newbies includes a 1-bit digital amplifier, Dolby Home Theater certification and harmon/kardon’s Bass Reflex Speaker technology. The estimated retail price is about $2,399.

Lenovo launches budget PC line in the US

Lenovo has launched its Lenovo-branded laptops and desktops to target small businesses and sell at significantly lower than the company’s IBM labeled products. The desktops will start at $349 and the laptops will sell for $500. This isn’t really a good way on earning a good profit as anything that runs on budget spells small revenue. That’s probably why IBM stopped doing that in years.
