IBM beefs up compatibility of its slim NetVista all-in-one computer

IBM Corp. has extended some components of its NetVista all-in-one thin computer to work with its notebook and handheld devices.

The NetVista X40's optional, $239 Portable Drive Bay 2000 accepts a swappable drive that also fits IBM's ThinkPad notebook PCs.

The X40 starts at $1,799 with a 533-MHz Celeron processor, 64M of RAM, a 15-inch flat-panel display with speakers and a 10/100-Mbps Ethernet interface. It measures 16 by 16 by 10 inches.

The CD/DVD-ROM and floppy drive folds beneath the built-in display, and the keyboard slides under it.

Preloaded software includes Microsoft Windows 98 or Windows 2000 Professional, Lotus SmartSuite and Notes Client 5.0 licenses, and antivirus and diagnostic applications.

A driveless NetVista S40 with an integrated 10/100-Mbps Ethernet connection starts at $699. An optional embedded security chip provides 256-bit encryption.
