ZENITH DATA SYSTEMS UNVEILS NEW PC LINE FOR HOME-AND-OFFICE MARKET;
 NINE NEW PRODUCTS ON DISPLAY AT WINTER CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW
 BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Zenith Data Systems (ZDS), a recognized leader in business computing, today announced it will enter the consumer-oriented home-and-office market. ZDS will demonstrate its new line of PCs and monitors for mass-market retailers at the Winter Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas Jan. 9 to 12.
 "We bring a strong brand name to a market that has only a few familiar brands," said Enrico Pesatori, ZDS president and CEO. "This market represents a sizable new opportunity for ZDS to extend its leadership in desktop and portable PCs to individuals purchasing systems for their home offices or small businesses."
 ZDS' new home-and-office line consists of four desktop PCs, four monitors and a notebook-size system. These new systems will be marketed through national and specialty mass-market retailers, rather than through the company's traditional network of PC resellers.
 "ZDS is offering retailers an opportunity to tap into the growing home-and-office market with a full line of reliable, low-cost systems from an established industry leader," said Ed Prokop, ZDS vice president, home-and-office products division.
 ZDS' new line of PCs is designed to simplify the sales and installation process. ZDS has taken the responsibility for total end-user support by providing:
 -- Videotape of installation and usage tips,
 -- Popular software built in,
 -- Free technical support by phone, and
 -- One-year of on-site service.
 Available in April, ZDS' new home-and-office line includes:
 NOTEBOOK PC that weighs 6.5 pounds, uses a 20-megahertz (MHz) 386SX processor, has a 60-megabyte hard drive and includes a data/fax modem for a suggested price of $2,499.
 FOUR DESKTOP PCs ranging from a 16-MHz 386SX-based small-footprint system with an 85-megabyte hard drive that has a suggested price of $1,499 to a larger, more expandable 25-MHz i486SX-based system with 1024 x 768 video resolution and a 120-megabyte hard drive that will retail for $2,699.
 FOUR MONITORS from a 14-inch black-and-white VGA monitor for $119 to a 15-inch multifrequency monitor capable of VGA, Super VGA and 1024 x 768 resolution video output for $699.
 ZDS, a Groupe Bull company, is a leading manufacturer and marketer of portable, desktop and file-server microcomputers for single- and multi-user applications. Based in Buffalo Grove, Ill., ZDS has engineering facilities in St. Joseph, Mich., and Santa Clara, Calif.; manufacturing operations in St. Joseph, and Villeneuve d'Ascq, France; and sales facilities in more than 30 countries.
