 WANG ROLLS OUT TWO 40-MHZ PCS;
 SYSTEM SPEED AND POWER TO BENEFIT LAN, IMAGING APPLICATIONS
 LOWELL, Mass., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Wang Laboratories, Inc. (AMEX: WAN) today enhanced its PC Series of personal computers with two models featuring the 80386-compatible 40-megahertz (MHz) central processor from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). The AMD 80386DXL is the fastest 80386-compatible processor available today. Wang's PC Series is designed for office applications in the commercial and government markets.
 Speed, memory and storage capacity, and configuration flexibility make the Wang PC 380/40C equally well suited as a network, database, and/or image server in a PC local area network (LAN). The PC 350/40C, with its compact chassis and fast processor, is designed as a high-performance desktop client for today's complex application environments. Pricing for a base configuration is $2,600 for the PC 380/40C and $2,345 for the PC 350/40C. Both are available immediately.
 "PCs and PC LANs are strategic hardware platforms within Wang's OFFICE 2000 strategy," said Kevin A. DeNuccio, director of PC sales and marketing for the Commercial and Government Market, at Wang. "We are committed to offering our customers the most advanced PC platforms so they can take full advantage of increasingly sophisticated networks and applications to help increase productivity, quality, and service in the office." System Highlights
 The PC380/40C comes in a flexible, expandable deskside chassis that provides room for optional expansion cards, as well as internal and external peripheral devices. The PC 350/40C offers high performance in a small, unobtrusive desktop cabinet.
 Both systems employ industry-standard architecture (ISA). Base configurations include the 80386-compatible and 80386DXL 40-MHz central processor, 1 megabyte (MB) of memory, 64 kilobytes (KB) of direct-mapped cache memory, a multipurpose diskette controller, support for Integrated Drive Electronics (IDE) disk drives, and a 1.2 MB, 5.25-inch or 1.44 MB, 3.5-inch diskette drive. A socket for an optional 40-MHz math coprocessor is standard on all PC 380/40C and PC 350/40C systems. These base configurations are also available with 4MB of memory.
 The PC 380/40C and the PC 350/40C can be configured with up to 32MB of on-board memory through eight Single In-line Memory Module (SIMM) sockets that support industry-standard 256KB, 1MB, or 4MB SIMMs. In addition, the two systems include an expansion slot that can accommodate an optional 32-bit, high-speed memory expansion card. This card provides eight additional SIMM sockets, allowing total system memory to reach 64MB.
 The PC 380/40C and PC 350/40C have eight and six 16-bit AT expansion slots, respectively, to accommodate an optional video controller card and connectivity options, such as an 802.3 Ethernet or 802.5 Token-Ring card. With the multi-purpose controller and a video card installed, the PC 380/40C and the PC 350/40C still offer six and four free expansion slots, respectively.
 Both systems can accept up to two 3.5-inch IDE disk drives capable of storing 40MB, 80MB, 124MB, or 200MB. As an alternative, users can install an optional SCSI (Small Computer Systems Interface) controller that supports up to seven internal/external 337MB or 632MB SCSI disk drives for up to 4.4GB of disk storage.
 Both systems are compatible with the Xenix, UNIX, MS 0S/2, MS-DOS, and Microsoft Windows 3.0 operating environments and with the Novell NetWare and Banyan VINES network operating systems.
