Steve Jobs’ Next Inc in San Rafael, California has unbundled the software of the Pixar Image Computer, and cut the effective price of both the hardware and the software. The machine, formerly $122,000 with the software, is now $79,000, and the unbundled development and support software and training cost another $10,000. The Unix-based Pixar Development System is reduced 17% to $150,000 including the Sun Microsystems Sun-3 workstation on which it runs. Next is now working on a scholars workstation with the functionality of the Pixar Image Computer for September at something around $5,000, says Jobs (CI No 573).
