IRVINE, CA --AUGUST 28, 2000--Micro Express introduces the first value-priced 1.1GHz multimedia PC, the MicroFLEX 1.1G, based on the AMD AthlonT processor with performance enhancing cache. This "screamer" is the fastest PC available today. Contrary to most announcements in the PC industry, the MicroFLEX 1.1G is available, in quantity, today, concurrent with AMD's introduction of the processor.
"AMD has proven to be an outstanding supplier of reliable, high-performance processors," says Art Afshar, president of Micro Express. "Micro Express PCs, with AMD processors, have been consistent #1 Best Buys in PC World's monthly Top 30 system listings. And, they have been at or near the top of almost every comparative review, regardless of the publication."

The MicroFLEX 1.1G is available for only $1949, including 128-MB of SDRAM, a 12X DVD drive, a 30-GB Ultra DMA hard disk drive, a CD-RW drive, a high-density 3-1/2" floppy disk drive, built-in PCI audio, speakers, a high-quality 17" monitor, a 56K V.90 FAX/modem, a 10/100 BaseT Ethernet card, a Microsoft Natural keyboard and a mouse. The system also includes a high-performance AGP-compatible 3D PCI video card that has 32-MB of RAM. Windows 98SE is preinstalled.
