Business Editors and High-Tech Writers

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 16, 2001

Lan Plus, a computer manufacturer that recently announced its intention to merge with Mcglen Internet Group (OTC BB:MIGS), today announced the worldwide launch of the AMD Athlon(TM) processor-based Integra All-in-One, a concept that merges numerous consumer technologies into one functional, efficient product.

The award winning Integra enables users to watch TV, play DVD movies, listen to CDs, tune in to the stereo, or do computing and Internet browsing from a single device.

Consumers demand technology that combines productivity and entertainment, and the Integra is the space-saving, all-in-one solution. Now available with a powerful AMD Athlon processor, the Integra is equipped with a DVD/CD-rom drive, cable-ready television tuner and radio tuner with remote. The built-in LCD screen provides radiation-free entertainment and PC application viewing. This comprehensive new class of technology comes in a revolutionary, space-saving model and is Windows XP Ready. In addition, a free Windows XP Upgrade coupon is included with this launch model.

"Windows XP is a breakthrough release that delivers incredible computing experiences for both work and home," said John Frederiksen, general manager for the Windows Platforms Group at Microsoft Corp. "Microsoft is pleased to support AMD and Lan Plus in providing their customers with the tools needed to take advantage of an exciting array of new experiences that are now available to them."

"We are very pleased with the industry support surrounding this product. The AMD Athlon processor truly enhances the many applications of which the Integra is capable. The Integra is an ideal solution for anyone wishing to combine all their entertainment and computing needs in one unit. This phenomenal product virtually replaces the television, personal computer, DVD player and music CD/FM stereo. Just think about the impact this will have on dormitories and offices, as well as homes and lofts with limited space," said Bob Anderson, Director of Business Development at Lan Plus. "The system blends entertainment needs and computing needs in a powerful, yet simple, space saving design."

In addition, the Integra's built-in LCD display allows for more than a 50% electricity usage savings versus PCs with a CRT display.

"The 1.4GHz AMD Athlon(TM) processor-based PC combines the unparalleled performance of the AMD Athlon processor with a multitude of features to deliver an enriching entertainment and computing experience demanded by consumers," said Mark Bode, division marketing manager of Desktop Computing for AMD's Computation Products Group.

The Integra features a built-in 15-inch LCD TFT display, 40 GB hard drive, 256MB SDRAM, as well as many other surprising features and add-ons. It is competitively priced and comes with a one-year parts and labor warranty and one year of toll-free technical support. More information can be found at www.integra4me.com.
