Designed with a focus on personal entertainment instead of data processing, BenQ's Joybook 8000 becomes a digital communications "hub" via two Firewire ports, four USB ports and S-Video output. Movie editing features, CD burner, DVD and a CD player that operates independently of the PC operating system are included along with a 15.2-inch screen - backed up by an Intel Pentium 4M 1.8 GH, nVIDIA GeForce4 graphics card and digital music output - that provides enough real estate for gaming and watching movies.
The Joybook 8000 includes a control panel on front of the unit for easy control of movie or audio entertainment and an optional MP3 Player also operates as an external USB storage device.
The Ben Q Joybook 8000 will be available in April and will cost between AUD $4,000-$5,000.
