GRAPHICS COMPUTER LAUNCHES 1ST AUSTRALIAN SPARC PORTABLE

By CBR Staff Writer

The first transportable Unix computer to be designed in Australia has been launched by Graphics Computer Systems Pty Ltd, of Burwood, near Melbourne in Victoria. The MXtransportable is a cut-down SparcStation 10 with a 10 active matrix screen, up to 128Mb of memory, 2.1Gb disk, SyQuest Technology Inc removable disk drive and optional projector with video mixing. A motherboard, similar in size to the Sun Microsystems Inc Sparc IPX motherboard, includes an additional MBus slot and Fast SCSI-2 application-specific integrated circuit controller. Single or dual processor module formats are available. Entry-level systems use the 90MHz HyperSparc and cost from around $13,500. The firm said it is the largest Australasian supplier of Sparc-compatibles and clones. It exports to South East Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America.
