Deskpro systems and Armada and LTE5000 notebooks are reduced by up to 24 per cent and Compaq will tighten the screw with a further ten per cent off Deskpro 2000 units and monitors until April. The move steps up Compaq's attempt to win over the SME sector and comes on the back of a similar double whammy cuts/promotions at Christmas.
Compaq's entry-level 133MHz Pentium-based Deskpro 2000 with 16MB RAM, 1.6Gb hard drive and 14-inch monitor is cut by 17 per cent from £1,200 to £990 and is further slashed to £899 per cent with the promotional pricing.
The £999 notebook is the 100MHz Pentium-based Armada 1120 with 16Mb RAM, 810MB hard drive and 10.4-inch dual-scan colour screen.
