NEC TO PHASE OUT PROPRIETARY PCs

By CBR Staff Writer

But now NEC looks set to move away from its proprietary system at last, and says that 70% of its sales are likely to conform to the Microsoft PC 98 standard by the second half of 1997/98, during which time it should ship around 1.7 million PCs.
