It's a desktop, it's a notebook, it's a ' DeskNote

PC Wave Inc.'s new 7-pound DeskNote desktop replacement system has components like a desktop PC's'even a full 2.2-GHz Pentium 4 processor, not a mobile Pentium. But the AC power supply is external to avoid the battery heat buildup that plagues Pentium 4 notebook PCs, according to the Fremont, Calif., company.

The DeskNote is available now for $700 with a 1.1-GHz Celeron processor. The 2.2-GHz version will sell for about $1,600 to $1,700, spokeswoman Celeste Chan said. It will have 256M of RAM expandable to 1G, a high-resolution 15-inch LCD, a 20G hard drive, a DVD drive with CD-rewritable option and a 56-Kbps fax modem. There are four Universal Serial Bus 2.0 ports plus Ethernet, IrDA and IEEE 1394 FireWire ports. The 2.2-GHz DeskNote measures 15 by 13 by 2 inches.

Chan said most users will leave the DeskNote plugged in at the desk all the time, but if necessary they can take it on travel with an optional external battery. She said no price has been set for the battery. See www.pcwave.com for details.
