Blockbuster Archos 10

Blockbuster on Friday unveiled an unusual deal that will see it carry the Archos 10 netbook in its store. The 10-inch portable is billed as a means of accessing Blockbuster's download and rental services on the road and will have a shortcut to the movie store's website. Its version of the system will also be less expensive than normally offered in the US, dropping down to $300.

The special-run model should otherwise be identical to the stock Archos system with a 1.6GHz Atom chip, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, a webcam and Windows XP. Software is the French PC maker's differentiator with special apps for photo viewing as well as online radio and TV; it also has Lotus Symphony for document editing tasks.
