TEXAS INSTRUMENTS OFFERS CASH INCENTIVE FOR UPGRADE OF PROFESSIONALS TO BUSINESS PROs

By CBR Staff Writer

Texas Instruments Inc has given up on its TI Professional Computer but is offering owners of that machine an upgrade to the TI Business Pro AT-alike: it will offer people who bring in Professionals between $2,640 and $3,135 toward a Business Pro, the minimum configuration of which comes with 512Kb 80286, 1.2Mb floppy, MS-DOS 3.2, and mono monitor; the trade-in offer will last indefinitely, and the Business Pro can in turn be upgraded into a model of the System 1000 series of multi-user Xenix machines by changing the motherboard – but there is no cash inducement to do that; Texas rightly points out that most manufacturers who discontinue their machines simply leave the users as orphans – so the company has learned something from all the ill-will it generated by its abrupt abandonment of its home computer business.
