On the back of Intel’s Pentium 4 release, IBM has released its new NetVista A60i desktop computer and Intellistation M Pro, with the promise that both systems will add the powerful multimedia, imaging and Internet capabilities of the new chip.
“There is always a market for people who want nothing less than the very fastest personal computer,” said Sameh Farid, marketing manager, IBM PSG Middle East, Egypt and Pakistan. “IBM launched the NetVista line earlier this year with a focus on design, ease of use and connectivity. IBM is now tweaking the top-end of that line with high performance for the heat seeker crowd.”

Designed for tool free expansion, the Intellistation M Pro chassis accommodates six adapters (five PCI slots, one 4X AGP Pro 50) and 7 storage devices. (4 bays open), fed by 340W power supply and cooled by up to four fans.
