New hybrid storage solutions

Packard Bell said yesterday that it will use the Cyrix MediaGX chip in a consumer notebook called the NEC Ready 120LT. This is strange. Two days ago, Colwyn Munro, general manager of NEC Direct, said that his customers wanted Intel and not non-Intel chips. (See Red faces all round in PB-NEC Intel chip fiasco) According to spin doctors for the company, the NEC Ready 120LT is for the US market only and will not be sold in Europe. We will watch out for any sign of it making an appearance from beyond the pond so we can ask your man again… ® * Hong Kong company Kapok said it will use Cyrix chips in its range of notebook machines. It never said it wouldn’t, so that’s alright then.
