Compaq claims it has made ordering a PC as easy as ordering a pizza.
The scheme, aimed primarily at small business users, costs #899 and includes delivery and installation.
Orders are placed by calling Compaq direct, after which the customer is contacted to schedule a delivery on any day of the week, including weekday evenings and Saturdays, but not Sundays.
Within three working days the PC, a Compaq Presario 2212, will be delivered by a Compaq installation technician, who unpacks the system, powers it up and runs through the Windows 95 registration procedure with the customer and confirms the machine, which includes a modem, is fully operational.
Included in the price are a keyboard, mouse, 14in Compaq monitor, Microsoft's Office software, a 33.6K modem (upgradable to 56K) and multimedia capabilities including a CD-ROM, PremierSound Audio System with integrated speakers and MPEG Full-Motion Video Playback.
In addition to one year's free telephone support and one year on-site warranty, users also receive free application support on pre-installed software for one year.
