ALR FIRST TO SHIP NEW 25-MHz INTEL CHIP; FULL FEATURED, UPGRADEABLE
 386SX/25-MHz BREAKS $1,000 PRICE BARRIER
 IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Logic Research Inc. (NASDAQ: AALR) today becomes the first computer manufacturer to begin shipping a system based on Intel's new 25-MHz Central Processing Unit (CPU) chip.
 In a move designed to put quality computers within the financial reach of every user, the PowerFlex FLYER 386SX/25 will retail for $995 and $1,049 with pre-installed MS-DOS software version 5.0.
 ALR Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Gene Lu said, "The original PowerFlex proved to be a great success for ALR at a time when upgradeable PCs were new to the market. Today's users demand upgradeable solutions, but today's economy dictates affordable prices. ALR continues the momentum of the PowerFlex success by offering the new PowerFlex FLYER. The 386SX/25-based PC really gives business and home office users the performance and upgradability they need at a price they can afford."
 The fully upgradeable ISA-based PC offers a full-featured 60-MB hard drive configuration and is packed with standard features such as three upgrade options, including 16-, 20- or 25-MHz 486SX microprocessor modules. The computing power of the ALR PowerFlex FLYER 386SX/25 provides a 56 percent performance gain when compared to higher priced 386SX/16-MHz systems. Dave Kirkey, vice president of worldwide marketing at ALR, believes that the ALR PowerFlex FLYER 386SX/25, at $995, is an exceptional value. He says, "No other manufacturer today delivers this much expandability or cost advantage like the ALR PowerFlex FLYER."
 Standard 1-MB RAM expandable to 16-MB on the motherboard uses industry standard SIMM modules. Integrated controllers include floppy, IDE hard drive, and video. The integrated video controller provides 800 x 600 resolution, expandable to 1024 x 768 for guaranteed sharpest picture screen. A special slot includes support for fax/modem or SCSI peripheral options and integration for Multi- media devices like CD ROM. A "flash" BIOS is provided to ensure compatibility with future technologies. Kirkey adds, "With an offer like this, an ALR computer can be on every desk."
 Additionally, ALR announced three upgrade options to boost processing performance to 486SX levels in 16-, 20- and 25-MHz (speeds. Retail prices are set at $399, $499, and $599. Buy-Back programs provide users with generous rebates for CPU modules when their processing needs become more demanding.
