Compaq has cut prices on a large number of its Deskpro family but drew condemnation from IBM for selling its NetPC for more than the price of a conventional desktop.
An IBM representative said his company had no plans, at present, to adjust its prices. But he did hit out at Compaq?s policy. He said: ?Why does Compaq charge more for its NetPC than it does for some of its desktops? Has Compaq used the finest teak to handcraft them? What does Compaq?s NetPC have that its desktops don?t??
The cuts come on Deskpro 2000s and 4000s but a Compaq representative was eager to point out that its free bundled monitor offer was ending.
The Deskpro 166MHz machine falls from #900 to #660, with the 200MHz model falling from #1,300 to #1,025.
Meanwhile, in the 4000 family, the 166MHz machine drops from #1,125 to #980, while the 233MHz unit with 32Mbytes of memory and 1Mbyte of cache falls from #1,815 to #1,515.
