The March 10, 97 issue of Business Week, pg. 18 has an article "Compaq's
$1000 Bargain."
To quote:
computer case is sealed, simplifying the design and eliminating the need for
expansion bays and slots.

Preloaded with Windows 95 and the all-purpose Microsoft Works, among others.

I just wish that Compaq had left some room for growth by including a
Universal Serial Bus connector with its serial printer and game-controller
ports, USB devices....

Monitor is additional is $300 --
processer is another major design departure...Instead of Intel Pentium, it
uses a 133-megahertz Cyrix Media CX chip, more or less equivalent to a
133-Mhz Pentium.

Hope this helps.
