Mitsubishi Electric has extended its highly successful MS range with the introduction of the new Apricot MS660 mini-tower system, a highly expandable and space saving deskside format which gives you even more choice. And by incorporating the Intel Pentium processor with MMX™ technology*, this system represents the very latest in home multimedia solutions, providing the most compelling graphics performance ever seen in a system of this class.
Like all Apricot home multimedia solutions the MS660 represents the very best multimedia system money can buy. This outstanding mini-tower provides a higher standard of performance than the competition for a number of very simple reasons:
  • We control the design and build process from start to finish - we don't just throw together bought-in components and hope for the best.
  • Our UK factory works to uncompromising quality control standards - to provide one of the most reliable and durable systems on the market today.
  • Apricot MS systems are only as good as their component parts; that's why we only choose the best - such as Sony CD ROM, Creative Labs SoundBlaster audio and Intel processors.
  • The Apricot MS660 implements the latest in hardware accelerated 3D graphics-from the stunning ATI 3D Rage to the arcade quality of the 3Dfx Voodoo controller on the Diamond Multimedia Monster 3D.
  • We understand what the home multimedia user wants from their system - high performance not just high specification; leading edge technology but easy to use; a sound investment but good value for money.
  • It includes the Intel Pentium processor with
    MMX™ technology to give it the best audio and graphics performance any games player could ever wish; and moreover, delivers around 10% performance improvement when running normal applications.



Powerful 20 watt external speakers deliver awesome sound quality. For even greater definition we've added a Deep Sound Sub-Woofer which delivers outstanding bass response and surround sound. All MS660 models utilise the industry leading SoundBlaster audio technology from Creative Labs for the ultimate stereo sound experience.

Processing The inclusion of MMX™ technology brings new depths to multimedia functionality, both now and in the future. Apricot systems regularly deliver well above average performance - results borne out by independent benchtests in leading computer publications.

This is the ultimate entertainment PC. All MS660 models bring arcade quality games into the home with fantastically lifelike graphics, which makes objects appear clearer and surface textures more like the real thing. This high level of image definition, coupled with a high resolution monitor, and you'd almost feel you were there!
In addition to a superb selection of inclusive software titles for games, education and home reference, we've also added 5 extra titles which will take full advantage of the MMX™ technology. There's enough software here to keep the hungriest gamester occupied.
Apricot systems are among the
easiest to set up and use. We ensure that every Apricot user can get started with the minimum of fuss, and can use the system easily for everyday tasks. The simple point and play infra-red remote control makes it easy to select software, audio CD, and other functions through Apricot's unique Easy Manager™ front-end screen.

All MS660 models come with a high-performance V34 fax/modem and a year's free Internet access. Access the world or pages closer to home such as the Apricot InTouch site, a selection of Web pages compiled specifically for Apricot users.
