Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The PC manufacturing wing of Compaq is set to announce two fresh models in its 75xx range in the next two weeks, The Register has learned. Both models are based on Pentium III Coppermine technology, and our information is that market pressure, plus increased availability of Intel processors, has allowed The Big Q to roll out the machines. The CPQ 7598 uses a Pentium III running at 600 MHz, comes with 128 of memory, a 40GB hard drive, a 40-soeed CD ROM, CD-RW, a 56K modem and a Quickcam. The other model in the range, the CPQ 7599 uses a Pentium III 700 MHz chip, but otherwise has an identical configuration to the 7598. However, retailers close to Q's plans are noting that there appears to be an availability problem with Logitech Quickcams which Compaq is offering with many of its newer models. Instead of there being a bright and shiny Quickcam inside the box, instead there is a coupon, which explains that production on the units is constrained, with around a five week delay. However, Compaq is, as the expression goes, "fessing up" to the problem and will pay for postage and handling for the Quickcams when they become available. We hope to have prices on these two Compaq boxes very soon, although sources have already said the difference between them is only likely to be $100 or so. Q will also introduce a fresh flush of machines over the next few weeks and we hope to provide you with details of these machines early. ®
