Compaq revamps its notebook and desktop PC lines

Compaq Computer Corp. has redesigned its Deskpro desktop and Armada notebook PC lines with carbon and silver cases and is renaming them Evo.

'It's going to be a more nimble Compaq,' said Ken Willett, vice president of product management. The company plans a stable PC design that is more manageable and wireless-accessible, as government users have requested, he said.

The first Evo models are available this week: a 3.5-pound, $2,299 N400C notebook with full-sized keyboard and a 5.5-pound, $1,499 N150 notebook with 14-inch display. Wireless Ethernet and Bluetooth modules will be ready late this summer, Willett said.

Evo workstations with dual 1.7-GHz Pentium III Xeon processors also will arrive this summer, priced from $2,354. Evo thin clients, the size of a paperback, will be $399.
