This PC has been launched by BPL under its Cybercom series. Specs wise, it’s an ordinary machine, having an Intel Pentium 4, 2.8 GHz processor, 256 MB RAM and 80 GB hard disk drive. Additional cards have been provided for serial connection and USB ports. A 56.6 Kbps internal modem has also been provided. The body color is black with a 15-inch color monitor and a multimedia keyboard. 

The keyboard has separate buttons to open a search window, to control audio volume, and to open a Web page. Plus, there’s a mute button and an e-mail access button. We did wish that it came with a DVD combo drive instead of the regular DVD drive it ships with. The PC has plenty of bays for expansion, so you can add additional drives if you’d like. Plus, the machine also ships with a pair of stereo speakers and headphones. The speakers have a PMPO of 500 Watts and frequency range of 50 Hz to 20 KHz. We tested this PC for its capabilities in running business applications, high-end content creation applications, as well as graphics and gaming capabilities. The graphics performance was measured using the 3DMark 2003 benchmark, while gaming was measured using the Quake 3 Arena. It gave good results in both the Business and Content Creation Winstone, reporting scores of 39.4 and 37.5 Winstone units. Graphics and gaming performance however, weren’t as good, with scores of only 115 3D Marks and 65.5 fps (frames per second) respectively. 

Bottom line:
The BPL Cybercom PC is a good buy for running business and content creation applications. However, it could have been priced lower.
