Compaq Offers New M720 CRT Monitor with Multimedia Base (Advisory)
HOUSTON, October 15, 2001
Compaq Computer Corporation (NYSE: CPQ) today introduced the economical M720 CRT Monitor, featuring an innovative multimedia base that provides a compact one-piece display solution for convenient audio capability.
Ideally suited for education, government and business users, the M720's multimedia base includes integrated speakers, saving space and reducing the risk of theft. This configuration also reduces the number of wires around the desktop, as the fully integrated speakers do not require an external power source. In addition, the microphone and headphone jacks are located on the front panel for easy access, and the monitor features line-in jacks for connecting CD drives and other presentation devices.
With a 36 percent larger viewing area than a 15-inch monitor, the 17-inch M720 monitor allows viewing of several screens at the same time without the need to click back and forth between programs, and features a tilt and swivel base for optimum readability. The M720 CRT Monitor has been tested for frontward and backward compatibility on all leading desktops, notebooks and workstations, and the monitor's carbon and silver color scheme makes it a perfect compliment for Compaq Evo™ PCs and iPAQ™ desktops. The monitor is also available in opal.
The M720 CRT monitor is available direct from Compaq for just $249. For more
