IBM ThinkCentre S50

IBM's ThinkCentre corporate line is a cut above the rest; its comprehensive management tools are just the beginning. The ThinkCentre systems are guaranteed to support the same software image for a full two years, and you can now use an image across four different form factors. The ultrasmall ThinkCentre S50's cover is reinforced with steel, so you can set a full-size monitor on top of the system without ever bending the chassis.

SPECS:
2.8-GHz Pentium 4 processor, 512MB DDR SDRAM, 80GB hard drive, integrated graphics, CD-RW, 15-inch LCD, six USB 2.0, $1,199 direct.
