Product Specifications

The sleek and stylish NetVista X40 all-in-one system features an integrated flat panel screen combined with traditional desktop components for full functionality. It is an ultra-compact computer that fits in the tightest office space; and with USB ports replacing parallel and serial ports you benefit from a quick and easy setup. Plus, the keyboard stores neatly beneath the monitor, and the CD-ROM and diskette drives tuck out of sight when not in use. An extremely expandable all-in-one system, the new IBM NetVista provides maximum versatility and convenience with great many expansion options. With NetVista X40 you don't have to sacrifice performance to save space. With a powerful Intel processor, and a large hard disk drive the NetVista X40 is a top performer within the NetVista product range!
