DIGITAL NOW RANKED AMONG LEADING PC VENDORS MAYNARD, Mass. -- Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Equipment
Corporation (NYSE: DEC) has penetrated the top-ten PC makers ranking for the first time, according to a monthly market study published by Computer Intelligence of La Jolla, Calif.
"Digital was the fastest growing PC vendor in 1992, establishing Digital's credibility in Intel-based PC products. The forthcoming Digital Alpha AXP-PCs, running Microsoft's Windows NT operating system, should help Digital grow even more aggressively in 1993," said Dan Ness, senior industry analyst, Computer Intelligence. Digital launched its Desktop Direct catalog business in January, 1992, and introduced its popular DECpc LP family of desktop computers in August. "This month, Digital is included again in Computer Intelligence's monthly listing of fastest growing PC makers. No other vendor has had a stronger presence on that list in the past year," Ness said. Each month, Computer Intelligence conducts in-depth interviews with 4,500 computer purchasing managers at large and small establishments in the U.S. Computer Intelligence publishes its findings from these interviews in its monthly PC Market Monitor. Within the last 12 months, Digital's PC sales ramped up past about
20 other vendors in order to reach its current ranking of 9th among PC industry leaders, according to Computer Intelligence.
