INDICATIONS THAT THE PS/2 TRADE-IN PROGRAMME MAY CAUSE PROBLEMS

There are strong suspicions that IBM may be about to shoot itself in both feet with a PS/2-35 AT-alike (see front), but the company’s US trade-in programme that pays cash for old IBM machines when you buy a PS/2 may also cause problems: the company reportedly plans to auction off the boxes it takes in to used computer dealers who will then refurbish and resell them at, or below, the price of a cheapo clone, and as many as 400,000 machines may come back onto the market in this way, definitely hurting the cheapo clonemakers, but also likely having some impact on IBM at the low end.
