NEC Corp’s Computer Systems Division is reading a new PC desktop system for launch later this year that will come in what it claims is a new form factor it’s calling Microdesktop. The new desktop, code-named Millennium, is said to integrate desktop, mobile and future technologies including a built-in flat panel display. The footprint will measure 10.5 inches wide by 7.7 inches deep and 2 feet high. It’s expected to be priced under $2,000. Powered by a Pentium III processor, the machine will include PC card slots, NEC CDS’s modular components and a detachable LCD screen. NEC defines microdesktops as small form factor PCs that occupy significantly less space than traditional PCs but still support the newest processors and storage technology. It hopes to find new markets for the machine for users that have space restrictions or require computers with a more aesthetic appearance, including military applications, research and development laboratories, healthcare, reception areas, kiosks and executive offices.
