Ook AMD gaat handelen in kleurtjes (schijnt tegenwoordig popi te zijn, Steve en zijn vrienden bij IBM en Compaq doen het ook al), zo bericht News.com:
Advanced Micro Devices will swing into the fancy computer movement this month when computer manufacturers begin to release design-minded, colorful computers based around the company's chips.
The new PCs, the latest attempt to capitalize on the color PC craze, will be aimed at style-conscious consumers on a budget. The systems will sport colored, translucent cases and novel designs, including an all-in-one design similar conceptually to Apple's iMac.
[...] Some of the new AMD-based systems will be relatively inexpensive because they will come with K6-2 chips, the company's budget chip, said Stephen Lapinski, director of product marketing at AMD. Some manufacturers, for instance, will release a small, ovalized K6-2 PC designed by AMD. The oval computers come with a CD-ROM drive and two USB ports, but lack built-in floppy drives, he added.
[...] Meanwhile, the names of manufacturers for the fancy AMD systems have not been released; however, Packard Bell NEC is expected to be one of the companies coming out with systems in this vein, sources said.
Aah, een Pack-it'n Hell met een K6-2 proc, wat wil je nog minder!
