Data General Corp picked the wrong day to announce the Eclipse MV/1000 DC as the lowest-priced, 32-bit mini it has ever offered. The table-top machine cuts by up to 34% the cost of entry into the MV/Family, with performance comparable with that of the MV/2000 with an entry price of $8,150. With the Personal Computer Integration software, it can be configured as a low-end file on a local net, and it supports AOS/VS, AOS/VS II, DG/UX Unix and DG/RDOS from the 16-bit family, any with one in the base system price. The single board computer has a CMOS gate-array CPU, floating point unit and 4Mb memory, with Winchester, floppy and cartridge tape interfaces; two RS-232 modem ports; eight RS-232/RS-422 ports and parallel printer port. Main memory is up to 121Mb and disk goes to 322Mb.
