Compaq is set to introduce a Net PC in the UK next Monday, despite the withdrawal of IBM from the market.
The company confirmed today that it will sell its introductory product from 22 September. It is set to offer NetPC versions across all its Deskpro families. But the PC maker refuses to give details of prices, so far.
The machine will be physically small but with a high spec and a sealed case, according to US reports.
Last week, IBM said it would not go ahead with plans to launch its Net PC, citing lack of customer demand and absence of real cost savings.
