York's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center starting Jan. 30, is

server and PC will be featured at the show. Singapore-based
Celestix intends to highlight its new Aries Microserver Plus,
reportedly the smallest and lightest SOHO server on the market.

Devices, will showcase a postage stamp-sized computer called the
MachZ PC-on-a-chip, which he hopes will dramatically change the
world around us."
