Compaq Computer Corp says its DeskPro 4000N NetPC can reduce the total cost of ownership of a personal computer by up to 35%. Quoting a research report issued by Gartner Group Inc, Compaq says that calculations covering five cost points – desktop capital, network costs, technical support, administration and end-user operations – showed the NetPC running Microsoft Corp’s Zero Administration Kit for Windows in TaskStation mode recorded an annual total cost of ownership of $6,469, compared to the Network Computer ($6,547), Windows Terminal ($7,792) and typical Windows 95 system ($9,869). Compaq says it will be supporting the Desktop Management Task Force DMI 2.0 and Intel Corp’s Wired for Management specifications on all of its new Compaq Deskpro systems.
