Pentium 4 processors at speeds up to 1.7GHz (1).

The NetVista A60, designed for business users, and the NetVista A60i, built for productive
individuals at home and small businesses, now feature Pentium 4 processor speeds of 1.7GHz. First
introduced in the Autumn of 2000, the NetVista A60 and A60i series of personal systems occupies the
high-performance category of the IBM NetVista family of desktop products.

In addition to boasting the fastest processor speeds available from Intel, the A60 and A60i
desktops provide users with huge hard drives some models featuring up to 40 gigabytes of capacity.
Additionally, the A60 and A60i desktops offer four bays and four slots, providing users with a high
degree of expandability.

that allow users to run their businesses more efficiently. Easy-to-use NetVista software tools

personality settings from previous personal computers, and provide one-button restore capabilities
in the event of software glitches or system crashes.
