NEC Information Systems Inc, Boxborough, Massachusetts is among the first personal computer players in the US to introduce Intel 80386SX-based machines. The PowerMate SX desktop comes with 2Mb memory, the choice of 1.2Mb 5.25 or 1.44Mb 3.5 floppy, a 42Mb 3.5 hard disk and three AT slots for $4,500, and is available now. It runs SCO Xenix 386 as well as MS-DOS 3.3 and MS-OS/2 Standard Edition 1.0. The PowerMate Portable SX starts at $6,600 for a similar configuration, but presumably includes a screen although there is no mention of it. It’s out late this month in the US.
