IBM TAKES AGGRESSIVE PRICE ACTION ON PS/2 MODELS

 IBM TAKES AGGRESSIVE PRICE ACTION ON PS/2 MODELS
 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today


announced aggressive price action with reductions of up to 30 percent on its Personal System/2(A) product line. In a further move to increase overall value to its customers, IBM lowered prices on its storage devices and monitors.
 "This action reinforces our commitment to provide quality products at very competitive prices," said Michael R. Coleman, vice president, National Distribution Division. "Combined with recent promotions, we offer outstanding value to customers across our product line."
 At the same time, IBM announced it is doubling the standard system memory to 8 megabytes (MB) on the PS/2(A) Model 56 SLC-059, Model 57 SLC-059 and Model M57 SLC-259 at no additional cost.
 Customers who purchase a Model 56 SLC or Model 57 SLC before Oct. 1, 1992, will receive IBM's 486SLC2 upgrade for only $259 when it is available in the fourth quarter. (Sale or delivery of the IBM 486SLC2 Processor Upgrade is pending FCC approval).
 A PS/2 powered by the 486SLC2 chip performs up to 20 percent faster than popular 486SX-25 MHz systems and up to 400 percent faster than 386SX-20 MHz systems. The specially priced upgrade offers an unbeatable combination: Customers can enhance their investment by harnessing 486 processing power without requiring purchase of a new system.
