Intel has introduced the “Extended PC Era” in the region in order to set the stage for a future in which more consumer products go digital and interconnect with home PCs.

“The PC is at the center of the digital universe and the universe is expanding,” said Gilbert Lacroix, Intel Corporation general manager, Middle East and North Africa. “In the Extended PC Era, the combination of powerful and versatile Intel Pentium 4 processor-based PCs and a vast array of digital products will help consumers use their home PCs and the Internet in new, exciting ways,” he added.

As digital consumer devices evolve, Lacroix believes that they will migrate toward more of the PC’s capabilities and blend into the PC environment, enhancing and extending the home PC.

“In the Extended PC Era, the home PC will be tasked to do even more and consumers will be at the center of their own Internet experiences,” said Lacroix.

In Intel’s view of the world, the PC will deliver Internet video and audio throughout the home, adding value to digital consumer products that take advantage of its ability to edit, manage, store and share content.
