POWER COMPUTING READIES WINTEL NOTEBOOKS

By CBR Staff Writer

Following the acquisition of its major assets by Apple Computer Inc on Tuesday (CI No 3,238), Power Computing Corp looks as if it will be keeping the Intel-based notebook computers it has been developing, and will go ahead with a launch planned for this Monday, with shipments this month. The notebook line will initially come with a 266MHz Pentium processor, but will be upgradable to the MMX enabled Pentium Tillamook chip designed for notebooks later this year or early next. Intel is set to officially unveil Tillamook, its first 0.25 micron part, at a separate event on the same day. Power, which is said to have originally considered producing a PowerPC 750-based notebook, changed its mind when its licensing negotiations with Apple got stuck in the mire. The new Wintel notebooks could still pose a threat to Apple, which has taken on Power’s Macintosh related assets, marketing team and customer list, as they are expected to include common peripherals and AppleTalk support to provide some level of compatibility between the two platforms. Power will continue to sell Macintosh clones until the end of the year.
