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 allows 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.
