The essential guide to IT transformation

Evesham Micros, Panrix, Carrera and Mesh were among the UK PC builders launching systems with the Athlon 700 today. Evesham launched four systems with the AMD Athlon 700MHz. These range from £1,409 + VAT, with 128MB DRAM, 12.9Gb hard drive, 16Mb graphics and DVD, to £2,039 + VAT, with 256Mb DRAM, 20Gb hard drive and 19" monitor. Carrera launched its Octan M700, adding to its existing Octan range, which uses all five versions of the Athlon chip range. The machine, priced at £1,999, with 128MB DRAM, 34 Gb hard drive, DVD and 19" monitor, will start shipping by the end of this week. Mesh launched its Matrix 700T at £2045 + VAT with 128MB DRAM, 22Gb hard drive, 19" monitor and 56kbps modem, which it advertised as early as last week with the tag-line 'Pentium Killer'. Panrix also launched two systems today, but was this afternoon still clarifying specks and prices due to yo-yoing DRAM memory prices. ®
