moved: Porsche/Best Buy go after Titanium sales
[quote]Retailer Best Buy is aiming to take a bite out of Apple Computer with the release of a new, wide-screen notebook designed by Porsche.
The VPR Matrix 200A5 is the third notebook Best Buy has created, and it's the best. It's also the first Windows notebook with a wide-aspect, 15.2-inch LCD with a 1,280x854 native resolution and a remarkable, high-fidelity digital audio system. The $2,399 system also includes a 2GHz Pentium 4-M, 512MB of DDR SDRAM, a 40GB hard drive, a combo CD-RW/DVD drive, and integrated 802.11b wireless networking. It all comes in an eye-catching, silver-magnesium case that weighs 6.4 pounds and measures 13.9 inches wide, 10 inches deep, and 1.2 inches thick.
Well i guess it took a car company to put together a laptop that could match the sexy-ness of the TiBook. Yet this is just not as attractive as the powerbook, im sorry.
Note the slot-load CDRW/DVD, 2ghz P4, and DDR. The specs are nothing to scoff at.
