French get le bargain PC offering

Who says cheap ain't chic?

A French supermarket is selling Internet-ready PCs for the knockdown price of £200. Géant -- which has 120 stores throughout France –- told Le Register it has sold more than 3000 PCs in just five days as shoppers rush to take up the offer before it runs out next month. The deal is being run in conjunction with French Internet Service Provider (ISP) Infonie, which charges around £15 a month for Net access. The only condition linked with the offer is that consumers have to use Infonie as their ISP for a minimum of two years. The Power Net 300 PC comes with Cyrix MII 300 processor, 32MB SDRAM, 36x CD-ROM and a 56kbps modem. ®
