Data General Corp has added a new 16-bit Eclipse system and a string of new peripherals for its Eclipse MV line of minicomputers, among them a free-standing disk and tape unit, a 130Mb stand-alone cartridge tape drive, expanded asynchronous connection for the MV/1400 DC and MV/2000 DC, and an 8Mb expansion memory board for the MV/1400 DC. The new DG/500 is described as a low-cost, entry-level, 16-bit multi-user system housed in a PC-style chassis, which starts at $5,000, reducing system costs for many RDOS users by up to 30%; it is compatible with the RDOS-based Dersktop Generation personal computer models, MV/1400 and MV/2000 computers – and Genuine Parts Co of Atlanta has placed a $3.2m order for 500 of the DG/500s for use in automotive parts stores. The Combined Storage Subsystem/DC configurations begins at $11,100. The stand-alone 130Mb tape drive is $5,500; the add-on 234Mb disk is $7,200. The 32-line asynchronous card is $6,000; the 12-line asynchronous card is $2,250 and 8Mb expansion memory is $5,500.
