IBM unveils desktops, wireless mouse and keyboard

The mouse and keyboard are sold together as a kit and come in black. The kit is available immediately from IBM's Web site, and costs around $US99, the IT vendor said in a statement.

The keyboard and mouse kit also comes with a receiver that connects to a PC via a USB (universal serial bus) port, said Bob Paige, a spokesman for IBM. The mouse and keyboard however are wireless.

"You can use the wireless keyboard with a ThinkPad (portable PC) if you want a bigger keyboard and more flexibility," said Paige.

IBM also announced the immediate availability of five new models of all-in-one PCs. The smallest of the PCs targeting individuals and very small businesses, the NetVista X40i, has a starting price of $US1,599, IBM said. The least expensive of the models designed for businesses of all sizes, the NetVista X40, starts at $US1,899, IBM said.

The NetVista X40 has a processing speed of up to 1GHz and features a hard drive with 40GB of storage capacity, IBM said. Furthermore, the PC has a 15-inch TFT (thin film transistor) display which together with the mouse and keyboard is the only visible part of the computer. The hard drive and speakers are hidden behind the display, IBM said. The user can push a button to lower a tray from the display to reveal the disk drives.

In addition, IBM released a radial arm that can suspend the PC above the desk to save space, the company said. The radial arm, also available immediately and named NetVista Radial Arm X Mount, starts at $US219, IBM said.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
