Business Editors & High Tech Writers

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 6, 2000

AOpen today raised the bar on service to its users through formation of Club AOpen -- a forum designed to enhance the personal computing experience through an open, on-line exchange of ideas and experiences.

A premier provider of innovative, reliable PC component solutions, AOpen now brings together users, both expert and novice, from around the world into a dynamic, user-friendly environment.

"We wanted to offer a community-oriented service for our users and all PC users. The rate of learning is far greater when we encourage users to communicate among themselves," said Jerry Huang, Director of Marketing and Communications for AOpen America, Inc. "The amount of knowledge that exists within the user community for any brand of computer is incredible," he added.

Club AOpen is available at two levels -- the Silver Club AOpen, which is open to all PC users, and the Gold Club AOpen, which is intended for current AOpen product owners. Key benefits of the Silver Club AOpen are access to new product announcements, personalization of the user's web page, free software and driver downloads, special product promotions, and technical advice provided by AOpen specialists.

The Gold Club AOpen offers all the benefits of the Silver Club plus a high priority technical assistance service, technical notices via email, information about new products from AOpen, and email reply with BIOS software driver attached. Additional benefits will be offered to Gold Club members later this year.

More than 4,100 users have already joined Club AOpen. "What a superb way to stay up to date on all the most recent products and technical updates," said one user. "Finally a PC vendor who offers fast and accurate technical support." Registration to Club AOpen is simple -- it can be done online and takes just a few minutes.
