Micron Electronics Inc. is offering Sony’s recordable and rewriteable CD drive as an upgrade option with Millennia and Client Pro desktop computers.
The Sony CD-RW drive is the industry’s first CD recorder capable of 4X recording and 24X CD reading. The CDs hold 650MB of uncompressed data and can support up to 1000 erasures. CD-RW discs can also be used with DVD-ROM and CD-ROM drives.
For the upgrade price of $199, Micron buyers can substitute the Sony CD-RW drive for the standard 40X CD-ROM drive. Alternatively, users can order a Millennia or Client Pro system with both the standard 40X CD-ROM drive and the Sony CD-RW drive for the upgrade price of $249.
