SAN DIEGO -- April 8, 2004 -- A Spanish version of LindowsOS customized for laptops is now available pre-loaded onto two laptop models through PC Club at http://www.pcclub.com. All 58 locations of the computer retailer are now carrying the sub-$800 (www.lindows.com/athena) and sub-$1000 (www.lindows.com/spartan) laptops. LindowsEspanol para Laptops includes all the features of LindowsEspanol and adds power management capabilities, WiFi compatibility, and more.
"We've seen great interest in our desktop Spanish product so it made a lot of sense to translate our laptop product into Spanish as well," said Michael Robertson, chief executive officer of Lindows, Inc. "Sub-$800 priced laptops for the Hispanic community are now available because of LindowsEspanol para Laptops."
LindowsEspanol para Laptops is tailored to the needs of the 28 million Spanish speakers in the United States. The operating system offers power management capabilities, expanded support for WiFi cards, compatibility with keyboard shortcut keys, and more. LindowsEspanol para Laptops also offers a complete Spanish-language experience with all core applications, comprehensive multimedia tutorials (www.lindows.com/tutoriales), and a community support forum (www.lindows.com/mexico) fully translated into Spanish.
"The demand for products tailored to Spanish-speakers has been rising steadily," said Jackson Lan, chief executive officer of PC Club. "LindowsEspanol para Laptops brings powerful mobile computing to the millions for whom Spanish is the preferred language."
LindowsEspanol para Laptops is currently available pre-loaded onto two laptop models offered by PC Club, offering flexible options to meet consumers' needs.
