LICENCE REQUIREMENT FOR MS-DOS MICROS, LAP-TOPS WAIVED

Sooo… trying to sneak an 81Mb disk drive past us, were we? British business travellers who like to take their micros away with them on foreign trips will no longer have to apply to the Department of Trade and Industry for an export licence: the licence requirement has been waived for MS-DOS micros, hand-held computers and laptop computers, however the Department stipulates that the computer’s main memory should not exceed 4Mb, formatted hard disk capacity mustn’t go over 80Mb and it should not incorporate more than one 8087, 80287 or 80387 floating point processors; export licences will still be required for the Comecon countries and for computer that fall outside the specs.
