Still not resting on its market leadership laurels, NEC Corp has brought out two more models in its PC-9801 family, a laptop with a monochrome liquid crystal display screen, the PC9801 LV22; and a 32-bit desktop with a 30% increase in processing speed and new 3.5 floppy disk drives, the PC9801RL series: the laptop is designed to compete with Seiko Epson Co’s NEC-compatible laptop and is an upgraded version of the LV21 with the 8086-compatible V30 microprocessor; the desktop drives an 80386 at 32MHz, and is $5,700 with floppies, $7,600 with 40Mb disk; NEC looks to sell 25,000 of the machines in the first year, and offers an option of high-resolution 1,200 by 750 pixel display, and NEC’s PC-UX/V Unix, which can be used with X-Window System.
