Harvey Norman to release $999 PC

Next week Harvey Norman will release a new $999 PC aimed at beginners.

The retailer initially tested the market in January with 2000 units of a $999 Signature-branded PC incorporating a Cyrix GX 180 processor. Customer response was "tremendous" with all units selling out within three days , according to Tony Gattari, general manager for computers and communications at Harvey Norman.

Starting next week, Harvey Norman will nationally release 5000 units of the Signature multi-media PC, priced at $999, and featuring a Cyrix MII 300 processor.

The PC also includes 32MB SDRAM, 3.2GB Ultra DMA hard drive, 24x CD-ROM, 14in monitor, speakers and Windows 98.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
