Diamond breaks into motherboards

Diamond Multimedia, mostly known for its multimedia accelerator chips, has launched a line of system boards as its first foray into the motherboard market.

Three boards have been released by Diamond as a result of its July acquisition of Micronics Computers. The Micronics C200 ($169 estimated price for system builders) is according to Diamond, a Super 7 system board designed as an "affordable system board platform for multimedia and 3D computing needs".

The Micronics C300, available at an estimated $179 for system builders, is designed for single Celeron and Pentium II processors and is based on the Intel 440LX AGPset. Features of the board include two ISA slots and five PCI (one of which is a shared ISA slot). The board includes 66MHz SDARM and up to 384MB of EDO and ECC memory.

The last new release is the Micronics C400, ($249 estimated price for system builders), which features an ATX form factor design based on the Intel 440BX AGPset for Pentium II and Celeron processors up to 450MHz.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
