If there is any surprise about today’s announcement from IBM on additions to the PS/2 line, it is how little there seems to be in it – unless IBM has played some cards very close to its chest: the only things that are reasonably certain are a 10MHz Model 50 – it may be called the 50Z – with 10MHz 80286 and a 60Mb disk; three models of the new desk-top 386 Model 70 machine – gossip says that these are a 16MHz model with 60Mb disk, a 20MHz model with 120Mb disk, and a 25MHz model, also with 120Mb; and a bigger disk – over 300Mb – for the 20MHz Model 80; some other odds and ends have been mentioned, including an X25 packet switching board for the Micro Channel models, and a scanner with 300 by 300 dots per inch resolution, and perhaps the odd application; if that turns out to be the sum of the announcement, any surprises will have to come in the depth of any price reductions.
