    This is dedicated to our female readers. Monarch Computer today announced a line of systems geared towards the female gamer. Under their award winning Hornet Pro line which is exclusive to Monarch, they have added a Pink Camouflage wrap to give their system a more feminine style which women can surely appreciate. This is a rarity in an industry which seems to gear products towards the male population. Many have recently noticed that gaming amongst girls and women has been on the increase. In a recent survey done, 65% of women in the age group of 25 to 34 say they play electronic games, as compared to only 35% of men in the same age group (Source: Consumer Electronics Association). In addition to this new skin for the Hornet Pro, Monarch Computer also introduced skins with a more traditional and patriotic theme. These new skins are Desert Camouflage and Woodlands Camouflage. These new skins not only show a sense of style, but also show support for American troops.

    I bet it sells more to the "odd" male gamers than it does to females.

    Wouldn't ya think if Monarch was gonna market products toward women they would at least ASK a few women in the market segment they are targeting, for their views on the FUGLY pink camo design they planned to offer???

    Ferchrissake folks, even the dumbest of the dumbest marketeers knows better than to offer something this FUGLY to woman, especially older more mature women.

    I just laugh at the gimmicks companies use to try and attract sheep who for the most part buy any damn thing they are told is cool.

    This POS wouldn't even make a bad April Fools joke.
