The higher end has 128MB of PC100 SDRAM, 7200rpm 22GB hard drive and 19in flat-screen USB-connected monitor. The PCs are available online or from Mesh showrooms. Time -- Granville Technology's PC business -- launched just one Athlon machine today, with a 650MHz processor. It has a 20GB hard drive, 256MB of SDRAM, 32MB graphics RAM and a 19in monitor. It is priced at £2399 exc. VAT, and is available via mail order and at Time showrooms. Panrix has launched systems with 500, 550 and 600MHz Athlon chips, priced at £999, £1099 and £1499 respectively.
