Ingram Micro and Synnex will carry ViewSonic's new PC mini line which the vendor called a "game-changer" for the traditional PC market.
The PC mini series comes in four flavours.
The top-of-the-range PC mini 550 is equipped with the Windows 7 operating system, an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz CPU processor and Centrino platform for a quieter, more energy efficient operation than traditional desktop PCs.
It also had 4GB DDR2, a 320GB hard drive, and built-in Blu-ray combo disc drive, and is priced at $1,499..
The similarly-spec'ed PC mini 530 does not have the Blu-ray drive, costing $400 less as a result.
Meanwhile, the PC mini 132 weighed just under half a kilogram and included the Windows 7 operating system, a dual core Atom 330 processor and 2G SDRAM. An optional VDD100-DVD super multi recordable DVD drive is also available. The base price is $799 with the optional drive $199 extra.
A third model, the PC mini 120 weighed slightly more but was targeted at small businesses. It came with Microsoft Windows XP, 1GB DDR2 memory, a 160GB SATA hard drive and four USB ports. It cost $499.
