[ Thanks to cpca for
this link. ] Hewlett Packard's new e-pc 40 Business PCs --
small footprint, Celeron-based machines -- offer a Mandrake 8.0
install option. The company says the machines are certified by
LinuxCare to also run TurboLinux, Red Hat, and SuSE. The new PC's
will be available October 1 at prices ranging from $589 to
The machines walk the fine line between PC and appliance, with
HP touting the "sealed box" nature of the components, which
"prevent unauthorized hardware changes" and a clear emphasis on USB
connectivity (the machines come with four ports.)
The machines offer a choice of Celeron 900 MHz, 950 MHz, 1 GHz
or 1.1 GHz processors, up to 256MB of RAM (from the factory... the
machines can be expanded to 512MB), an integrated NIC, integrated
sound, 5400 or 7200 RPM 20GB hard drives, and a 20x CD-ROM. Some of
the machines also ship with 15" to to 19" monitors.
