While vendors such as Compaq and IBM are scrambling to address the emergent sub-$1,000 business PC market, Acer is going one better - its new Pentium/MMX business desktops start at $699. The systems will only be sold in north America.
At a price that is unusual even for outdated models, Acer is launching a ?new? product family called the Acer Entra 3000, aimed at small to medium sized businesses and the education market.
For $699, customers get a system based on the somewhat dated 233MHz Pentium/MMX, equipped with 32Mbytes Ram, a 2.1Gbytes hard drive and a 24x speed CD-Rom. For $100 more, the Acer Entra 3572WT comes with a 56Kbps modem, a 16-bit sound card and speakers.
An Acer spokesperson said there are currently no plans to launch the Acer Entra in Europe.
