NEC will be flooding the desktop market with seven ValueOne MT models on sale at the end of July. The PCs are to be split into "Advanced" types, which use a Pentium 4 and Pentium Ds, and "Basic" types, which ship with AMD's wares.
The Advanced range will consist of three models, two of which use the Pentium D 940. The top-of-the-line MT850/5A has 1GB of memory, a 250GB HDD and an Intel 945G Express chipset; it'll cost around $1480. At the bottom end, the MT200/5A will use a Sempron 3400+ (2GHz) CPU and a 160GB HDD, and it'll fall off shelves for considerably less. The whole lot will be on sale July 21 in the USA.
