There are at least five new Macintosh computers in the announcement pipeline at Apple Computer Inc, according to MacWeek. The five go from John Sculley’s promised under-$1,000 Macintosh to a 33MHz workstation via the lap-top. The paper says there are new 25MHz and 16MHz machines similar in appearance to the IIcx, a 33MHz workstation that will come with a built-in EtherTalk adaptor and direct memory access capabilities, a low-cost, 16MHz 68000-based Mac, and the long-awaited 16MHz 68000-based portable. The report says that the next-generation Macintosh IIs, aimed at the Unix workstation market, will start appearing in January, 1990, but the portable, which had been expected to be at the August MacWorld in Boston, now won’t be ready until September or October, bacause of problems with the machine’s power supply and battery.
