NCR’S NEW MACHINES WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL FOURTH QUARTER

By CBR Staff Writer

The downside on the new machines is that they won’t be available even in the US until the fourth quarter: reasons presumably include shortages of 80386 chips, and uncertainty over availability and merits of the MS-OS/2 operating system; some analysts rather naively questioned the absence of an answer to IBM’s ugly little kluge, the 8086-based PS/2 Model 30, but unless a competitor that makes Personalikes wants to be seen to follow a slavish me-too policy of appearing to copy everything IBM has done, it makes more sense to ignore the Model 30 and simply cut prices on existing machines.
