Mini-PCs are here - make your first one a Lindows Media Computer

Mini-PCs are great and we have a very special one which we're announcing today that you can be the first to own if you get your order in our first shipment. If you haven't seen a mini-PC yet, you soon will. These are full-featured PCs that come in a shoebox or phone book size case. Instead of taking up lots of floor or desk space, these diminutive machines take up a minimum amount of real estate making them ideal for many new places and uses. At Lindows.com, we envision a future where every room of a house and office has one or more PCs, and mini-PCs are the ideal machines to stick on a bookshelf, in a conference room or any tight quarters. Up until very recently though, mini-PCs have been expensive - often costing over $1,000. Today, we're announcing a mini-PC that is not only small in size, but small in price. Starting at less than $350, this is a great looking and affordable computer you'd be proud to have in any room.

But there's something else that makes this machine a remarkable new offering. Besides being a full featured personal computer, it's also a DVD player and CD player. Just like the DVD player or CD player in your home entertainment center, you can turn it on and it is instantly ready to play a movie or music. It can of course play DVD movies, music CDs, even MP3 CDs and the increasingly popular VCD movies. You can control it using the mouse and the on-screen controls or by hitting keys on the included multimedia keyboard. There are also onscreen controls to access the advanced features found on most DVDs. When playing CDs, a snazzy spectrum analyzer accompanies the music in addition to onscreen controls. And of course, you're one click away from launching a LindowsOS computer which - thanks to Click-N-Run - can be loaded up with countless software programs to accomplish just about any desktop computing need, whether Internet or office related.





We call this machine the Lindows Media Computer because it's more than just a computer. The "instant-on" feature means you've got the speed and simplicity of a traditional CD or DVD player, but also all the versatility of a personal computer. It's the ideal machine to replace a stack of electronics or as the only device in a room to offer the maximum value and flexibility - all for under $350. The Lindows Media Computer comes in a sleek black case and is designed to operate either laying down or standing up. We've arranged to make a limited number of these computers available immediately through one of our new online partners. As we ramp up production and distribution, you will start seeing the Lindows Media Computer in many more retailers.

Mini-PCs are catchy though so be careful. If you get one in your office or home, you're be fielding questions about the mysterious small sleek black box. Once you show your friends the instant on digital entertainment features and LindowsOS, they'll want one for themselves so you better order at least two!
