IBM - Netvista X41


When IBM first launched the Netvista series of compact, all-in-one PCs they were legacy-free and used a combination of PC and notebook technologies. While they certainly saved space, their performance was nothing to write home about. ...

Product Specifications

When it came time to redesign an award-winning computer, the focus at IBM was to make the new IBM NetVista X Series models deliver a better e-xperience. Intel Pentium 4 processors, new easy access to components, and an integrated TFT display make it a simpler, and more powerful computing experience. NetVista X Series models save up to 75% more space than standard Pentium 4 desktop systems. The keyboard stores beneath the monitor, while the optical drive hides in the pedestal when not in use. X Series models are optimized for connectivity, with cable management and conveniently located USB ports. An optional Radial Arm creates a truly liberating experience in tight quarters. NetVista X Series models are great for the enterprise. Select workhorse models, a stable software image and room to upgrade make X Series models ideal long-term solutions. A host of tools, including Wake-on-LAN and the Software Delivery Assistant keep IT management simple. And with Pentium 4 processors these desktops are built for speed and performance. The IBM Embedded Security Subsystem, available on select NetVista X Series models, gives you peace of mind that your e-mail and files can obtain an extra level of protection as they travel across the Internet. Rest assured that your data and your investment have enhanced protection with industry-leading security features from IBM. This NetVista X41 computer features a wireless keyboard and mouse.
