"Intel enters the consumer electronics market with the debut of an iMac-like desktop called Dot.Station. At the same time Intel has opted to go with Red Hat Linux operating system instead of Windows."

"Dot.Station, shown at PC Expo in New York City this week, lets people surf the Web, exchange emails and make phone calls with a handset on the top of the unit. The device will cost about $500 (£329) to manufacture, and will not be sold directly to consumers but through a variety or retailers and business that will make it part of a service agreement, such as banks and Internet service providers."
