I just saw the new PC Connection catalog. They have brand new
Lenovo "tower computers" running Win XP with PCIe slots for under $400, and 22" LCD displays for about $230. This is BRAND NEW. So the ability to have an Ultrascope complete new system for under
$1300 is a reality. I cannot wait for this product to come out.
I don't know how quiet the Lenovo computers are, but I personally own HP xw4100 and xw4200 computers, and they are pretty silent.
you don't need a microsoft license - the new computers come with the license and Win XP.
I am looking forward to this product release too. Finally, affordable HD scopes! I notice it requires a 24" monitor, not sure if a 22" would work. I guess we will have to wait till next month to find out how well this works. I notice no 4:4:4 or 2k support. Oh well, the price is definitely right on this one.
I hope that the display is adjustable as I find there is a TON of wasted space and information in this product so far. All I want is YRGB parade and a vectorscope with the abilty to zoom and place them where I want. I could get by with a 12 inch display perfectly. I'm really hoping that this becomes a viable alternative to the Tektronix rasterizers in the future.
