II. Plutonium 600 The Plutonium 600 is a desktop personal computer that was developed at Geniuses-R-Us labs. It is currently at the top of the market and is in high demand. The Plutonium 600 can be purchased at your local computer store, or you can custom-order a machine through the company by calling 1-800-be-a-genius.

work to fix this problem and will be happy to replace the drives of all of the customers who have had this problem once the solution is found. The Plutonium comes with a fax/data modem. The customer has the option of choosing the speed of the modem. There is also plenty of room to expand the RAM and the secondary storage of the machine. For a small installation fee, a Genius will make a house call to install extra recollection.
