Prime Computer Inc is going on the offensive in the Pick market, implementing its Prime Information version of Pick to run under Unix System V.3 on its 80386-based EXL 316 micro. It also cut prices on the EXL 316, which already runs MS-DOS concurrently with Unix, by up to 22%. The packaged Prime Information EXL supports standard Pick and McDonnell-Douglas Reality versions as well as the Prime Information Rev 5.4 version from the Prime 50 Series minis and the three run concurrently – all under Unix. The software needs an EXL 816 with 4Mb memory and software licences are $3,000 to $6,000. A 2Mb EXL 316 with 10 lines, 90Mb disk and 60Mb tape is off 19% at $17,650; the Prime Information system package $19,900 for 4Mb CPU, two lines, the same peripheral complement and eight-user software licence, including Unix licence.
