thought SiS + Trident was bad, now we got APEX + VIA and S3, i mean, WTF is the world coming to?

CPU: VIA 1.4GHZ C3
CHIPSET: VIA CM400
RAM: 64mb DDR
GPU: S3 Deltacrome
OS: WIndows XP Embbeded
PRICE: $400

but here is a good part, it runs PC games

A C3 and Deltachrome? Boy, I can't wait to get my hands on that screaming performance beast.


For $400, I could build a full-fledged PC that would beat that thing so badly the designer's mother would feel it.

The problem ios they are making a $400 gaming PC.

I read the article and I am totally convinced I will not buy this.

BUT they could throw in a TV controler card, and a 100 GB hard drive and make it a tivo/game solution :)

that basically sounds like a low end pc. specs don't sound too hot... but hey... let's not judge a book by it's cover. i remember when ECS was a laughing stock mobo maker. they seem to be alright now :p

so does it ONLY play PC-games? that seems like way-to low end hardware to run the newer games even decently, will special just-for-this system games come out?
