Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Compaq is giving users up to £330 when they trade in their old PC in an attempt to fuel hardware sales. The Y2Buy programme offer applies to customers who buy new Compaq gear before 30 September. It is aimed at users who want to replace old laptops, desktops, workstations and monitors with products that are Y2K compliant. Compaq will rebate up to £330 (ex VAT) on the trade-ins, as well as remove the old PCs and dispose of them in an environmentally friendly way. Users will receive a cheque within 28 days of Compaq picking up the old kit.
