c|net has posted an article that takes a look at what may be a new trend in computer purchasing. The report says consumers are buying PCs with large memory and storage allotments, flat-panel displays and DVD-recorders. The average price of a Compaq computer has risen by 6%, according to executive vice president of Compaq Computer's global business units. The release of the latest iMac echoes this trend, with the high-end model expected by Apple to be the top seller.
