IBM Launches New NetVista Desktop Line

IBM Corp. announced several new models of its NetVista PC family. The new family continues IBM’s Edge of Network (EoN) initiative, with devices designed for fast, high-bandwidth Internet access, easy setup, and simplified use.

The new NetVista models offer software stability along with common designs deployed among several different form factors, including desktop, micro-tower, and mini-tower. With a single platform offered across a choice of form factors, the NetVista A40 models are designed to eliminate the need for software requalification.

Several NetVista models include IBM’s embedded-security chip, providing a layer of security built into the motherboard. In addition, IBM announced the IBM Backup and Restore program, a software package that helps users protect critical data and settings by providing automatic backup with one-button restore capabilities in the event of crashes.
