PCs going cheap from Egg

But have they cracked it with ecommerce yet

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Fujitsu has come up with a different slant on that old conundrum -- which came first, the chicken or the egg? It has teamed up with Egg to offer Internauts the chance of a PIII PC with subscription-free Net access, all for less than £1,000. The offer is part of Egg's tentative move into the real world of ecommerce and although it won't make much out of the deal, it is a start. Earlier this week it announced it would only be accepting new customers of its online banking service via the Internet. Yet, the tie-up with Fujitsu, which was pre-announced last month, is aimed at those people who don't already have Net access. Spot the dilemma? You can only join Egg via the Net and here’s a PC aimed at first-time buyers: so, which comes first, your PC or your Egg? A chirpy spokeswoman at Egg said the offer was available to everyone regardless of whether they intended to join Egg or not. Mike Harris, head of Egg, added: "At Egg we recognise that the ecommerce revolution is already here and will do everything we can to support developments in technology and help new and existing customers who want to be on-line. "By joining forces with Fujitsu our customers can enjoy the benefits of ecommerce." ®
