The Moneual 701 is a one-of-a-kind custom PC meant as a display for the extravagant customization that Moneual can do for customers with a need and budget for such. It’s Windows 7 Home Premium OS is powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 processor witha 4 GB DDR2, 500 GB HDD, Blu-ray drive, and a GeForce 9300 driving HDMI output and an embedded secondary display. A card reader and media controls adorn the exterior, as well.
Moneual had an excellent showing at CES 2010. The HTPC lines are improving, and the company is establishing other product lines to further its position as a leading computer system company. In addition to its computer lines, Moneual also will ship a robotic vacuum very similar to the iRobot Roomba, as well as a robotic air purifier ($1000, available soon). The latter wanders room-to-room cleansing the air when a signal beacon in that room indicates that the air is of less than pure quality.
