ZDS ANNOUNCES AGGRESSIVE NEW PRICES AND SPECIAL Z-DIRECT PROMOTION

 ZDS ANNOUNCES AGGRESSIVE NEW PRICES AND SPECIAL Z-DIRECT PROMOTION
 BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Zenith Data Systems, a Bull company, today announced that it has reduced prices on selected notebook PCs, including its award-winning Z-NOTE, by as much as $1,000.
 The company also announced a promotion in its Z-DIRECT catalog on certain desktop PCs bundled with software and monitors. These special bundles can save PC buyers hundreds of dollars when buying a total system. (See attached fact sheet for new prices.)
 "Our customers want more than just a great price on the day they decide to buy a personal computer," said Clifford A. Jenks, ZDS executive vice president of North American sales and marketing.
 "So, in addition to fine-tuning our already highly competitive pricing, we are putting together very attractive bundles of our feature rich products with the most popular accessories and peripherals," he said.
 The new ZDS price for the color active matrix Z-NOTE 320Lc Model 120 is $3,999. Previously, the Z-NOTE 320Lc, with a 120MB hard drive and 4MB of RAM, was priced at $4,999. At only 6.5 pounds, the Z-NOTE 320Lc is one of the lightest color active matrix notebook PCs on the market. The Z-NOTE series, introduced in April 1992, is the first notebook family with networking hardware built-in.
 For desktop personal computers, the current Z-DIRECT price for a Z STATION 433DEh Model 200 with a 14-inch non-interlaced Super VGA monitor is $3,199.
 This Z-STATION comes with a 33MHz Intel 486SX microprocessor, a 200MB hard drive, 8MB of RAM, a local area network (LAN) card, MS-DOS 5.0, Microsoft Windows for Workgroups, and the three most popular LAN client shells (Novell NetWare, Microsoft LAN Manager and Banyon VINES) pre-installed and pre-configured. Purchased separately, this combination would cost $3,648.
 Jenks said today's price changes were in reaction to recent actions taken by other PC makers.
 "We want to assure our customers and the marketplace that our products remain competitively priced, giving PC users some of the best values available for the best possible price," Jenks said.
 ZDS stopped publishing a manufacturer's suggested retail price list earlier this year. The company adopted a "ZDS price" designed to better demonstrate
the actual amount that customers can expect to pay. ZDS resellers determine their own prices.
 Zenith Data Systems products are available directly from ZDS through its field sales force or through its new Z-DIRECT catalog. The company also has a network of more than 200 North American authorized dealers. The company has distribution arrangements with five major distributors (DataGo, Ingram Micro, Merisel, Microage and ROBEC), who in turn supply additional dealers with ZDS products.
 Zenith Data Systems, a Bull company, is a leading supplier of notebook and desktop PCs, servers, monitors and related peripherals. With headquarters in Buffalo Grove, Ill., the company has engineering facilities in St. Joseph, Mich., Santa Clara, Calif., and Billerica, Mass.; manufacturing facilities in St. Joseph, Mich., and Villeneuve d'Ascq, France; and sales locations in more than 30 countries.
