Dixons and Cyrix team up – predictably

£599 PCs to take advantage of Santa situation

As revealed here three days ago and as "exclusively" revealed by ZDNet the day after, Dixons has bought into the Cyrix chip concept. Patriot machines will use Cyrix MII-300 chips and be sold from the groups 800 PC World, Currys and Dixons shops to capitalise on the pre-Christmas rush for technology. The Patriot machines will include 512K cache, 32Mb of memory, a 2.1Gb hard drive, 14-inch monitor, a 32-speed CD ROM, and Win98. Systems will cost £599 and like the Comet deal revealed by The Register at the beginning of this week, other options will be offered. ® Click here for more stories
