Cheap IBM Home Computer

Send Article to a Friend

Although IBM has not made an official announcement, a front page article in PC WEEK reveals IBM's plans for an August-release, low-cost home computer. This system, if released promptly, could steer potential buyers toward IBM if Apple cannot come through with its promise of a low-cost Macintosh. The new AT-compatible will feature an Intel 80286 10 MHz CPU (an approximate equivalent to the Mac SE or Portable in processing power) and street prices between $1000 and $1400, depending on the configuration. IBM will sell the machine at large retail stores. Equipped with DOS 4.0's graphic user interface and Microsoft Works, the computer will be ready to use out of the box.
