Gateway Select 1000

Notably, Dell's 1GHz PIII system is a uncharacteristically expensive. Called the Special Edition Dell Dimension, it will include 256MB of RDRAM, a 30GB hard drive, a video card with 64MB Double Data Rate memory, a 3x12x DVD-ROM drive, and an 8x4x32x CD-RW drive.

The company is taking a different approach to this launch, according to Ron Van Dell, Dimension's general manager in the US. It initially will offer the 1GHz PIII only in a "deliberately rich configuration". Any changes to the basic configuration will likely be upward, Van Dell says. The company will offer lower-price configurations later in the year, when more 1GHz PIIIs are available, he says.

Likewise, the HP Pavilion 1GHz is expected to include 128MB of RDRAM, a 40GB hard drive, an 8x DVD-ROM drive, a CD-RW drive, and 32MB of DDR memory on the video card.

The 1GHz PIII systems are expected to cost more than 1GHz Athlon systems, which is attributed at least in part to the still-high price of RDRAM memory.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
