 RESEARCH FIRM SAYS DIGITAL IS FASTEST-GROWING PC MAKER
 MAYNARD, Mass., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Equipment Corporation (NYSE: DEC) is the fastest growing PC vendor in the U.S. for the second month in a row, according to Computer Intelligence, a La Jolla, Calif.-based market research firm.
 Computer Intelligence's PC Market Monitor, a monthly report published July 25, surveyed 27,000 corporate computer buyers in the past six months. The report compared PC purchasing activity in April, May, and June to the purchasing activity in January, February, and March.
 For the six month period ending in June, Digital enjoyed a faster growth rate than any other vendor, the report said. Digital was the fastest growing PC vendor for the six-month period ending in May, according to last month's PC Market Monitor.
 "We're seeing a strong growth trend for Digital in the PC market," said Dan Ness, senior industry analyst, Computer Intelligence. "This monthly report is significant because it is based on such a large cross-section of end-user buying activity. In the past four months, no other vendor has grown as rapidly and consistently as Digital."
 In March, Digital was listed for the first time as number ten on Computer Intelligence's monthly ranking of "Up and Coming Personal Computer Vendors."
 In April, Digital jumped to number five in this ranking. In May and June, Digital has been ranked as the industry's number one fastest growing PC maker, according to Computer Intelligence.
 "Digital has ramped up PC sales at an explosive growth rate since we introduced DESKTOP DIRECT in January," said Jay H. Atlas, vice president, U.S. Channels, Digital Equipment Corp. "We are successful because we provide the desktop computer manager with much more than just a cost-competitive PC.
