In order to keep sales bubbling during the traditionally slow summer period, Amstrad Plc has come up with the configuration of its IBM Personalike that most observers were looking for in the first place – a twin floppy processor with screen, printer and bundled applications. The price for that package – which includes the DMP 3000 matrix printer, WordStar 1512 word processor, and SuperCalc 3 – is UKP700, a saving of UKP150 on the items separately. In effect, users are paying for the printer and getting the software free. The promotion runs for three months, ending around the time when thoughts will turn to the 80286 box expected from Amstrad.
