Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Evesham Micros is launching a range of PCs offering Internet use free of monthly fees or call charges. The UK company has got into bed with CallNet0800 and F1 Racing Telecom to offer a range of three PCs starting from around £700. CallNet0800 is the toll-free ISP which has been inundated by UK users hungry to register for the service since its launch in November. Last week the company confirmed that it still had a backlog of people trying to sign up. The cheapest PC on offer is the Zydec 0800, with Celeron 400MHz chip, 64MB, 8.4 GB hard drive, 15in monitor, CD-Rom and Windows 98. It costs £594.89 ex VAT. At the other end of the scale is the EveshamVale Athlon 0800, with Athlon 550MHz, 128Mb, 13Gb hard drive, 16MB TNT2 Graphics, 17in monitor and DVD-Rom. It costs £1020.43 ex VAT. The Worcestershire-based company claims to be the first to offer PCs with pre-loaded free Web use in this country. The bundles also include £20 of free phone calls. "Totally free Internet access is what the UK computer user has been wanting for a long time," said Richard Austin, Evesham MD. The machines will be available from tomorrow.
