Lenovo low power desktop PC for $269
Lenovo have announced an Intel Atom powered nettop computer. The H200 is a low power desktop computer. It is being bundled with an LCD monitor for US$399.99. Without the monitor they start at US$269. This includes a an Intel ATOM Processor 230 ( 1.60GHz 533MHz 512KB ), Windows Vista Home Basic, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950, 1 GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM 667MHz, 160GB Hard Drive and DVD-ROM Optical Drive. It appears to come in a tower PC case which must have a lot of empty space in it (not a bad thing as users feel cheated if you give them a tiny PC box). Presumably if you ordered enough, you could get them to leave out the DVD, Windows and replace the hard drive with some flash memory, to produce a nettop for under $US200.
