DELL CHIEF SAYS HE PREFERS “MANAGED PCS” TO NETPCS

By CBR Staff Writer

It looks as though Dell Computer Corp is hedging its bets over the Network PC bandwagon, with a product that will have the manageability of a NetPC in a platform that retains the flexibility and configurability of existing personal computers. Michael Dell, chairman and chief operating officer at the Round Rock, Texas company that based its success on selling direct, says he thinks managed personal computers will co-exist with NetPCs, sharing a common foundation that will reduce the cost of ownership. The company will design its own Managed PC to a set of specifications that will make the computers more manageable in interconnected enterprise environments, including remote management technologies that enable remote configuration and management and reduce on-site maintenance. Dell is one of the five co-authors of industry guidelines set out establishing NetPC and has been working closely with Microsoft Corp and Intel Corp (CI No 3,120). Michael Dell will discuss the Managed PC and NetPC in his keynote address at PC Expo in New York on June 17.
