Massive retail outlet Harvey Norman have wholehearedly entered into the no names market fray with yesterdays release of a sub A$1000 multi-media PC.
Inclusive in the offer is a PC running at 180 mhz, with 32 megs of memory, a 24 speed CD-ROM, a sound card, a 14" monitor, Windows 98 and 12 months warranty.
According to Harvey Norman's computer and communications general manager, Tony Gattari, this move will be well accepted by end users who might have previously been burnt by traders out to sell a bare bones PC without multi media functions or a monitor.
"The public knows and trusts Harvey Norman because its proven itself to be reliable," says Gattari.
Gattari still plans on focusing on the sale of brand name PC's but believes that the new venture will prove a lucrative sideline.
