WINDOWS MAGAZINE AWARDS ZEOS NUMBER ONE RATING IN "SPEED DEMONS" PRODUCT REVIEW

-- Windows Magazine May Issue Features ZEOS 486DX2-66 PC on Cover --
 MINNEAPOLIS, April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- ZEOS International, Ltd. (NASDAQ: ZEOS) announced today it has received Windows Magazine "Windows Recommended" award for the ZEOS 486DX2 66MHz personal computer workstation. The ZEOS system, based in Intel Corporation's i486DX2 66MHz microprocessor, was the only one out of twelve systems in the review to "Windows Recommended" award.
 The ZEOS 486DX2-66 PC is pictured on the Windows Magazine May issue front cover under the headline "Speed Demons! -- No-Wait Windows: The Fastest-Ever PCs." In a discussion of the award the magazine states the ZEOS 486DX2-66 system was selected "for the best combination of blazing speed, high-quality components and protection from obsolescence." It was the only system in the review "report card" to receive an "A" rating in the categories of "Construction", "Expandability" and "Serviceability".
 The Windows Magazine review stressed the importance of performance in running MicroSoft Corporation's Windows graphical user interface and Windows based application software. The magazine noted that the ZEOS VESA local bus video accelerator "helped the system scream through our real-world tests," and went on to note that "this card blew every other one we tested right out of the lab. After testing this card, we decided to rewrite our application macros so they don't zip by so fast!"
 As for expandability, Windows Magazine noted "...ZEOS's thoughtful motherboard design -- which includes a Pentium Overdrive-ready ZIF socket, plenty of space for full-height cards and an optional on-board SCSI interface -- gives it the advantage."
 "A robust and upgradeable high-performance system at an extremely competitive price," the review concludes. "This system won't be old technology anytime soon."
 According to Rick Apple, vice president of marketing for ZEOS, this award is the latest in a series to honor the new ZEOS 486 based computer systems. Other honors recently received by ZEOS include PC World Magazine's "Best Buy" award, PC Computing Magazine's "Best Value" award, and PC Magazine's "Reader's Choice" award for service and reliability.
 "This most recent award underscores that ZEOS is delivering the very best values in computing today," said Apple. "Frankly, these reviews suggest that ZEOS provides a very attractive alternative to customers considering IBM, Compaq or Dell. ZEOS offers award winning product, award winning service -- and can deliver. In fact, with our Computer Now! program, we have nearly twenty different ZEOS Windows based system configurations that we can usually ship the day the customer orders. The others don't seem able to match us", he noted
