Archos announces release details for mini PC range - Tech Digest
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.
