Amstrad Plc is not going to get left behind in the personal computer price wars, and yesterday said that it would offer its 8086-based PC2086 with Lotus Development Corp’s integrated Symphony program and a choice of Amstrad LQ matrix printers at UKP1,000 between May 1 and June 30 – a move that should get sales moving in the last two months of the company’s financial year, when they are traditionally slow; the bundle, which is also intended to increase still further Amstrad’s 50% share of the US market for 8086-based machines, represents a total discount of UKP500.
