Disney Adds PC To Product Line

The $599 unit joins a TV, DVD player, clock radio, and cordless phone among the products the company has introduced over the past two years.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Walt Disney Co. has added a personal computer and flat screen monitor to its lineup of consumer electronics products.

It even comes with a mouse.

The computer, which also comes with games, a digital pen, and a drive that plays both CDs and DVDs, joins a television, DVD player, clock radio, cordless phone, and other products the company has introduced over the past two years.

The computer will retail for $599 with the monitor sold separately for $299.

The "Disney Dream Desk PC" was unveiled Thursday in New York.

The computer was designed by frog design and will be made by Germany's Medion AG, a large private-label maker of personal computers.

The Windows PC comes with ContentProtect, an E-mail and Internet filtering system. It also comes with proprietary programs that allow users to combine their own video clips with Disney characters and sound effects and create drawings using a built-in digital pen.

Disney announced it will also be introducing a digital camera and camcorder later this year.
