New hybrid storage solutions

Comet is to sell Cyrix-based Daewoo machines in its out-of-town stores. The £599 boxes will use the NatSemi-Cyrix MII-333 chip and come with 14in monitor, 32MB of memory, a 56Kbps modem, a 3.4GB hard drive, 4MB AGP graphics, Windows 98 and Lotus software. Comet will also offer its customers an option of buying a printer and scanner as part of its package. The Daewoo boxes will be sold in over 230 UK stores, said Comet, which is part of the large Kingfisher group. The plan is to sell as many PCs as possible as part of the pre-Christmas rush. The boxes will be stacked at the front of the Comet stores to attract visitors' attention. Said Graham Jackson, European applications manager at Cyrix Europe: "This latest retail win is a reflection of the considerable recent commercial success of Cyrix based systems." ® Click for more stories
