IBM, SEEING RECORD YEAR FOR MICROS, SAYS IT HAS INCREASED OUTPUT OF PS/2s

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM’s Entry Systems Division bounded all over the analysts called in to hear it put the record straight on the Personal System/2 on Wednesday (CI No 709), bombarding them with news of forecasts increased, booming sales, and our production people in Austin and Boca Raton… working flat out to meet the demand. Entry Systems sees a record year for both volume and sales, implying at least $6,000m of business for the year. IBM said that it had a back-log of about 5 0,000 PS/2s, and that its manufacturing plants, including a third line opened in Raleigh, North Carolina, complete each week with essentially no finshed goods inventory. As for the OS/2 operating system, far from being late, as has been suggested – it is promised for first quarter 1988 – IBM says that it will be early.
