NEC Powermate P5010

This is a totally cool desktop PC from NEC, the NEC Powermate P5010. Like the Apple iMAC, Dell XPS One, and Gateway One, the NEC Powermate P5010 has a minimalist and space saving design. However, unlike its competitors, the NEC Powermate P5010 is designed to be portable, with a handle on the monitor for easy portability.

The NEC Powermate P5010 is also lightweight, weighing only 4 kg. Specifications of the device include: AMD Turion 64x2 1.6 GHz processor TL-52, 17.1 inch widescreen color LCD, 1GB DDR2 memory upgradeable to 2GB, and 200GB SATA Hard disk drive. The NEC Powermate P5010 also has an integrated 802.11b/g Wireless LAN adapter, and a slot-loading DVD Super Multi drive.

Personally, I love the design concept, I just wish they made the handle a little less discreet. The "flex bar" looks like the handle of a grocery shopping cart. The NEC Powermate P5010 is unfortunately, not available in the US market. It is currently only available in Japan and Australia.
