E-Machines Bundle Extended

Several months ago, Apple introduced a special bundle consisting of its 16" color monitor and an E-Machines DoubleColor SX graphics card. Apple has extended this offer from the original expiration date of 19-Apr-93 to 19-Jul-93.

Apple introduced this bundle partly to offer a less-expensive alternative to their own 8*24 graphics card for Macintosh IIci and IIvx owners who need large-screen color displays. The IIci and IIvx don't support color monitors larger than Apple's 640 x 480 14" Color Display, although price lists released last October incorrectly claimed that the IIvx supported Apple's 16" and 21" color monitors. The built-in video in the Centris 610 and 650 offers eight-bit color on the 16" display, and four-bit color on the 21" display, which is just as well, since the DoubleColor SX is longer than seven inches, the limit for NuBus cards in the Centris 610.

The DoubleColor SX card provides eight-bit color (256 colors or shades of gray) on Apple's 16" display. The bundle, which carries a suggested retail price of $1,799, is available through Apple resellers as item B5102LL/A.
