Sotec DS3040 desktop

Japan's Sotec Direct has launched the DS3040, a new compact PC. Its tower is so small, in fact, that it is not much larger than many "thin client" computers. Cost is another advantage; with a 17-inch LCD, it can cost just 74,800 yen ($605). Base specifications include a 2.66GHz Celeron D processor with 512MB of RAM, along with an 80GB hard drive and a DVD combo drive. Video is supplied through an intergrated Intel chipset.

The default operating system is Windows Vista Home Basic, but buyers can upgrade to Home Premium, or downgrade to XP Home; similarly, the display can be swapped with a 19-inch model. Running until June 28th is a free offer to upgrade the hard drive from 80 to 160GB. [via Impress Watch]
