De jongens en meisjes van Dell Computers konden het niet laten om ook met een iMac achtige Web PC aan te komen zetten. Meer info over deze doos vind je op de WebPC website, of lees dit nieuwsbericht van ZDNet.
By offering a complete package, Dell has broken with its typical practice of offering a la carte pricing that allow consumers to mix and match computer chips and other components, hard disk drive and peripherals to create a customized PC.
Taking advantage of its direct-selling capacity via the Web at www.webpc.com or over the telephone, Dell is set to take orders Tuesday and ship the products in the first half of next month. Orders take five to eight days to fill, and those made by mid-December could be ready for Christmas, Medica said.
The Webpc comes in two additional configurations, including a 466MHz-based Webpc priced at $1,099 that includes an optional flat-panel display for another $850 or $1,949 in total. A 500MHz Intel Pentium III-based model starts at $1,499, or $2,349 with flat-panel display.
The Webpc weighs 10 pounds, is six inches wide, 11 inches high and 10 inches deep. The box comes in shades of blue, orange, teal, red and purple. Printers and external floppy disk drives come in complementary colors of blue or gray.
