Apple has brought out five new 604-based PowerMacs all operating with the new System 7.5.3, Copland’s release having been put back again. The top end machine is the 32Mb RAM 2 Gb disk 9500/150, the latter number referring to speed in megahertz, and at the bottom end the 7600/120 replaces the current 7500. Prices range from just under 2000 to 4000. Should you be thinking of going over the wall you can practice with Apple’s new 100MHz PC plug-in cards, available at slightly more than complete PC bundles of this entry-level speed. The trade press predicts a major sell-off of surplus-to-requirements Apple kit, so maybe it’s worth waiting for real bargains.
