Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Demand for Pentium II 333MHz and 350MHz has so outstripped supply that there is an acute shortage of parts, a distributor has warned. Two weeks ago, Intel admitted that there was heavy demand for the PII processors, while yesterday it said that the PII 233, 266MHz and 300MHz were not now generally available. At the time, Intel said that supplies would begin to catch up with demand in a few weeks, but Mark Davison, processor product manager at UK distributor Datrontech, said today there is still a shortage. He said: "The shortages are still bad. My order book is strong but there will be a lot of people that can't ship machines before the end of the year." Datrontech, he said, was trying to move its customers to the 400MHz and the 450MHz parts, but the difference in price between the 350MHz and the 450MHz PII is around £100. ®
