Compaq slims down the desktop

Compaq has just announced a new PC in its Evo range, which looks more like a notebook than a desktop. The D500 Ultra-slim PC is 75 per cent smaller than the average desktop and is designed for the corporate market. It is equipped with an Intel Celeron 1.3GHz processor and 815e chipset with up to 512MB SDRAM. Compaq has plans to integrate Pentium 4 processors by mid-year. It also includes a 20GB hard drive and incorporates Compaq's wireless technology for 802.11b or Bluetooth standards and hot-swappable MultiBay for disk or optical drives. Compaq has focused on USB connectivity with one front and four rear USB ports, but a snap-on legacy module with serial, parallel and PS/2 ports can be purchased as an additional option. The 1.3GHz Celeron units will be available from March and will retail from $1395. They come with Compaq's standard limited global warranty for parts, labour, and onsite service for three years.
