HP's little MS 200 may look like an all-in-one, but isn't -- it's a slickly designed desktop.
HP whipped out some new notebooks today in the US today including the slick little Mini 311 netbook
with NVIDIA Ion power. The computer giant knows that netbooks and laptops aren’t for everyone though and has unveiled a new consumer desktop called the HP Pavilion MS200.
The MS200 is a sleek computer that looks like an all-in-one machine but offers the expandability options of a two-piece desktop. The system has a single cord for set up and uses an 18.5-inch LCD that swivels and has a built-in webcam and mic. Power for the machine comes from an AMD Athlon dual-core processor.
Optional graphics for the system are via an NVIDIA10M 512MB video card. The machine also has premium stereo speakers built-in and integrated Wi-Fi. The MS200 also has built-in MediaSmart software for watching, burning, and editing movies and photos. The machine starts at $US599 ($AUD694) and will ship on October 18 with Windows 7. No word on local pricing or availability yet, though.
