IBM’S SOLUTIONPAC PERSONAL PUBLISHING SYSTEM A SERIOUS ADDITION TO DESK-TOP PUBLISHING

By CBR Staff Writer

When you look at the IBM SolutionPac Personal Publishing System, it is safe to conclude that IBM is serious about desk-top publishing – it is a complete turnkey system that includes the Model 30, mouse, display, IBM Personal Pageprinter and interface card, with a version of Adobe Systems’s PostScript page-description language resident on the micro alongside Microsoft Windows 1.04, PC-DOS 3.3, and PageMaker version 1.0a; all software will be pre-installed on the hard disk, with all drivers configured; PostScript will be on a co-processor board with 10MHz 68000 controller with 43-font PostScript adaptor that enables data transfers at bus speeds rather than at serial speeds, and the board, with 2.5Mb of memory, also provides a bi-directional interface to the Personal System/2 and fast video interface to the printer – all for $8,553.
