Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Today's the day we can expect a raft of Athlon PC announcements from AMD's OEM partners, but eagle-eyed UK TV viewers got a sneak preview yesterday. Anyone watching the shopping channel, QVC, on Sky Digital on Sunday evening (and who wasn't? –- Ed) will have seen an Athlon-based PC advertised with a forecast delivery time of three to five days. The machine is branded Spirit, but is made for QVC by Midlands-based systems builder Evesham Micros. The Spirit has a 550MHz Athlon chip, 128MB PC100 memory, 15GB Maxtor HDD, DVD-ROM, 17in monitor and internal modem. It is covered by a three-year warranty and is priced at £1762.40 (inc. VAT). According to one Register reader, QVC said anyone ordering the Spirit PC could expect delivery within three to five days. ®
