Is this the Ali-PC?

"It'll have to be orange" suggested one of my irreverent colleagues....which spurred me into a search for a PC in those very colours. Look what I found.

All this encouraged by the story this morning that our friends at Alibaba are linking up with Intel to "launch a kind of special computer to meet the e-commerce demand of small and medium enterprises in China". The Marbridge Daily wins the prize for wittiest headline to date by suggesting that the new Ali-puter will be branded "B2B Inside".

It will be interesting to see how this can be integrated with the Alisoft e-commerce platform and other software services being developed by Alibaba. The articles suggest that the new computer will be launched later this year through a tie-up with an, as yet un-named PC manufacturer.
