- Woo-Key programmable keyboard

- 15-inch color monitor

The computer comes with a 1-year guarantee on parts and labor as well as 90 days of free technical support. A WooDogie! Deluxe is also available with several performance upgrades as well as a 17-inch color monitor.

Since the WooDogie! comes bundled with Juno Web(sm), Juno's full Internet access service, anyone who purchases it will have access to reliable, easy-to-use Internet service in virtually all geographical locations throughout the United States. With its new software (version 3.0) and a newly redesigned portal site (, Juno provides an unusually simple way to start using the Internet, offering both newcomers and more experienced Web users a satisfying online experience.

"In partnering with CyberMax, our goal is to make sure that the benefits of the Internet are available to all consumers," said Charles Ardai, Juno's president and CEO. "We are pleased to be working with CyberMax to provide high-value service options to both our current and future members."
