Start-up Enchilada, a provider of “free” and discounted PCs, has stopped accepting orders.
A message on the company’s toll-free line states that it has stopped selling PCs. Customers who have ordered PCs – but who won’t actually get them – won’t be charged, the message says.
An Enchilada spokesperson says the company is “probably” out of the PC business for good.
Enchilada, which is owned by a company called The Simple Solution, announced its offer on April 28. The company, founded by executives formerly from New York’s garment district, offered customers a free PC if they agreed to four years of ISP service at $19.95 a month. Customers could also pay for the whole package in advance for $799 or get more performance-oriented PC packages.
In June, the company introduced a $399 PC with three free years of Internet access.
