Sanyo Co is the first manufacturer to put a personal computer to the new AX standard into mass production, and will put three models on sale from the end of February in a bid to become the third force in a market expected to be dominated by NEC and Fujitsu in partnership with Matsushita: the three modles the MBC17JF floppy disk model priced at $2,618; the MBF17JH20 20Mb hard disk model for $3,710; and MBF17JH40 40Mb model at $4,300; the AX standard specifies an AT-compatible machine with Japanese language functions, and software compatibility with the 16-bit models of NEC’s PC 9800 series; the 19 members of the AX Discussion Group also include Sharp, Microsoft and Toshiba; Mitsui & Co has already started a value-added reseller business with AX machines supplied by Alps Electric, and Mitsubishi Electric is planning to introduce a laptop AX machine early next year.
