PCs Are Complete Multimedia Workstations

The new Compaq Presario ES multimedia PCs come packed with everything educators need ¬ and then some.

All systems start with a Pentium processor, a multimedia monitor that includes a set of quality speakers that can be controlled from the front of the monitor, and a choice of 11 LearningPaq software bundles.

The PCs also feature MPEG full-screen video, Spatializer 3-D Surround Sound and an industry-standard Ethernet network card pre-installed so one can instantly connect to a school's network.

Several exciting options include hardware-based TrueQ MPEG and Wavetable upgrades and the new Compaq Scanner Keyboard that features a built-in scanner that scans photos, papers, or any document. Compaq Computer Corp., Houston, TX, (800) 88-TEACH, www.compaq.com.
