IBM's NetVista All-in-One

IBM's NetVista All-in-One is a high-performance desktop that is 75% smaller than the average desktop PC. At just 16" x 16" x 10", the unit boasts a sleek, space-saving design. The CD/DVD-ROM and floppy drives tuck neatly away and a unique neck design allows the rapid access keyboard to fit beneath the monitor to free up desk space. It has a 15" flat panel monitor and built-in speakers. An optional radial arm conserves more desk space by allowing the system to be mounted on a wall or clamped to the edge of a desk.

An expandable device, the All-in-One has two PCI slots and seven USB ports that enable easy connection to printers, modems and other plug-and-play devices. It also features a wireless LAN option, which will allow users to avoid the awkward and space-hogging labyrinth of cables and wires. IBM Corp., Redmond, WA, (800) 320-8377,
