How did the company compaq come about?
Compaq was founded in 1982 and was, at one time, the largest seller of personal computers in the world. Compaq was later purchased by Hewlitt Packard.
The Compaq Evo was a series of business and laptop PC's and thin clients made by Compaq and Hewlett-Pakard. This brand was introduced in May 2001 as a business oriented brand by Compaq, in pace of their Deskpro brand for desktops and Armada for its notebooks. The Evo was rebranded as the HP Compaq, which is what is known as today.
