COMPAQ RETURNS TO ITS ROOTS WITH LUGGABLE PRESARIO

By CBR Staff Writer

Back in the days when Compaq Computer Corp was born in 1982, the only kind of portable computer you could get was a luggable, it was with luggables that Compaq first got started (and how – zero to $111m revenue in its first year of trading) and it sounds as if with the Presario 3020, the company is going back to its roots. Costing $3,000, it has a 12.1 flat panel display with a curved speaker system taking up the whole front behind it, 166MHz Pentium with 24Gb memory plus 2Mb video memory, 2Gb disk and high-speed four-disk CD-ROM autochanger and a carrying handle – and it weighs in at 28 lbs.
