Our Bureau

NEW DELHI, Oct. 23

YOU can now buy a branded personal computer for under Rs 15,000, provided you are not very fastidious about Intel processors and Windows Software. Esys Distribution Ltd, a global IT component distributor, today launched its `ePC' at prices starting from Rs 9,990, excluding the monitor.

The ePC is powered by VIA C3 800 MHz Central Processing Unit (CPU) and runs the free-cost Linux operating system. With a monitor, the PC would cost below Rs 15,000 only, company officials said here.

"This PC is for a totally new segment and we are not competing with other branded computers," said Mr Vikas Goel, Chairman and Managing Director of the Singapore-based Esys Distribution Group. "We are introducing this product as a concept in the market," he said.

Apart from the basic, Internet-ready model, two more versions of the ePC are available: One at Rs 11,990 and another at Rs 16,990. Both come without monitors.
