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.
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!
