Archos announces release details for mini PC range
Archos has officially announced its latest mini PC range, although we told you all about them last month. See our original post for the full specs – we’re far too lazy to type it all out again.
The most exciting of the new releases is undoubtedly the Archos 9 touch-screen Mini PC. It’s due to launch in September and will cost either £449.99 or £499.99 depending on the hard drive size – 60GB or 120GB.
Next up, and in no particular order, is the Archos 13s. This lightweight notebook (the screen is far too large for it be considered a netbook according to our new rules) will be out in August and will cost £549.99.
The Archos 10s – the successor to the Archos 10 – is officially the thinnest netbook around. According to Archos it is anyway. Answers on a postcard if you can find one thinner than 22mm. It will cost £329.99 for a 3-cell battery version and £20 more for a 6-cell. Who the heck would but the 3-cell to save £20? Again, it’s out in August.
Finally is the Archos 9 Classmate – the shockproof, partly water-resistant, kid-friendly netbook. It’s aimed at kids aged five upwards and will be pre-loaded with key-stage educational software. It’s £319.99 and it’s out, you guessed it, in August.
You’ll be able to purchase all of these machines directly from Archos should you so desire.
