P4 system specs

Details of the first systems

Intel says P4 systems will be 'widely available' in Q4 and lists the following vendors as having systems:

The list

HP, Dell, Compaq, Gateway, Dixons, IBM, Fujitsu Siemens, Acer, Dan, Toshiba, Saturn, NEC, Unika, Media Markt, Formoza, R&K.

Expect to see other manufacturers as well. Some PC makers, notably Tiny in the UK, have officially stated they will not be offering P4 systems this year.

Due to Intel's embargo, few details of systems are currently available. This is what we know so far. There's only one 1.4GHz box to date, from HP. The low price reflects the fact that the monitor is extra.
