NEC launches Atom-powered touchscreen PCs

Little Atom-equipped touchscreen PCs are dropping from more and more companies with NEC being the latest. These two models come in either 12- or 15-inch sizes and are obviously powered by Intel’s Atom processor clocking in at 1.6GHz. The units can be configured with either 512MB or 1GB of ram and comes with a sizable 80GB hard drive. Users have to deal with Vista Business Embedded via the touchscreen though when this guy launches. Speaking of launching, no word on price or availability just yet, but more than likely these types of ‘puters are gong to be purchased by large corporations / hospitals so don’t you worry ’bout it. m’kay?
