More figures, this time from the West German Chip personal computer magazine, which suggests that the Commodore PC-10 MS-DOS micro is the top-selling business personal computer in the West German market – and the number two spot also goes to Commodore with the PC20. The Apple Macintosh comes third, but Commodore pops up again in fourth place with the PC40 AT-alike. Apple returns with the Apple IIGS, IBM makes the list at number six with the AT, Tandon gets the next two spots with the XPC and the PCA, Apple’s Macintosh II makes the list at number nine, and IBM’s Personal System/2 creeps in at number 10 with the Model 30. In the home computer field, the Commodore is again number one with the 128 heads the list, followed by the Commodore 64, and Amstrad takes the next two places with the Schneider CPC464 and 6128, followed by the Atari 260ST. In the in-between market, Chip puts the Atari 1040ST at number one, followed by the Commodore Amiga 500 and Atari 520ST-M. And Newsbytes reports that Commodore has recast the $1,100 PC10, changing the size, shape and internals of the machine, which is now smaller, and comes with 9.54MHz CPU slowable to 7.16MHz or 4.77MHz, new keyboard, graphics chip, and 60Hz flicker-free mono screen.
