Compaq Pressario 5900T

Compaq is offering a Presario 5900T system through its Web site and retail kiosks starting this month. According to Compaq it will offer its 933-MHz PIII systems with more affordable SDRAM instead of the pricey RDRAM. Compaq picked SDRAM for the Presario line to keep prices down, according to the company. RDRAM will make its way into the Presario line later this year when Compaq introduces a product based on Intel’s upcoming Willamette CPU. In the meantime, the starter configuration for the 5900T includes the 933-MHz PIII, 64MB of SDRAM, a 10GB hard drive, a CD-ROM drive that reads at up to 40x, and a 15-inch monitor for US$1769. More robust configurations will top out at about $2500.

Prices listed are in US currency.
