Following its February announcement of the new MTA and MTE series of desktop systems for corporate markets, the new Xvi systems are also being targeted at companies that require systems that come configured with PC management software and hardware.
The Xvi series will ship with support for Desktop Management Interface and the LANDesk Client Manager from Intel. DMI is an industry standard framework for managing desktop systems and servers, while the LANDesk software allows a manager to conduct asset inventory, printer management, and software upgrades from a central location.
Other features include a standard 180-MHz Pentium processor, a self-monitoring 1.2GB hard drive, a 64-bit graphics accelerator, 12X CD-ROM drive, and an Ethernet adaptor. A system with 16MB of memory and a 15-inch monitor has a starting price of $1,999.
The new models are available immediately.
