PROMAX MAC CLONE USES EXPONENTIAL POWERPC CLONE

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM Corp may be ready to show Apple Computer Inc the door over its plan to hike Mac OS licensing fees 10-fold, but the threat has not deterred ProMax Technology Inc, Irvine, California, which has beaten Apple to the punch and unveiled the first Mac model using Exponential Technology Inc’s X704 supercharged version of the PowerPC running at 410MHz and installed on a motherboard based on the Apple Tsunami design. The company expects to ship the machine in July for about $6,000. The company specializes in fitting out Macintoshes and Windows machines as digital video workstations with appropriate monitor, RAID store and video- editing board. On the Mac OS licensing front, the Wall Street Journal reckons that Apple has has moderated its position, and insists that it does not want to kill off the Mac clone business.
