"Big box" retailer Best Buy announced it will expand its line of house brand PCs starting Sunday. Select stores began selling PCs made by VPR Matrix, a Best Buy subsidiary, under a test program launched early this year. The program is being expanded with a line of PCs featuring Intel Pentium 4 processors running at 1.8GHz, 2.26GHz, 2.4GHz and 2.53GHz.
The PCs all feature sleek cases created by Porsche Design and high-end features such as 512MB of DDR memory and onboard RAID controllers for hard disks. Prices range from $850 to $1,700.
