ZEOS 486DX2-66 DESKTOP SYSTEM WINS 'BEST VALUE' AWARD FROM PC COMPUTING

 MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- ZEOS International, Ltd. (NASDAQ: ZEOS) today announced that PC Computing magazine has named the ZEOS 486DX2-66 upgradable desktop system "Best Value" in its March 1993 issue.
 The issue's cover story, "Fastest PCs Ever: Windows at Warp Speed," reviews and rates seven 66MHz 486 computers that feature VESA-standard local bus (VL-bus). All systems in the test include at least one VL-bus expansion slot, video on the local bus, 8MB of RAM, a 200MB or larger hard drive, monitor, keyboard and at least one floppy drive.
 "At $2,745, ZEOS's 486DX2-66 was one of the least expensive systems we looked at," the article notes. "Kudos for its elegant motherboard design, great performance and thoughtful little extras -- like the 8MB SIMM that will give you a running start if you upgrade the machine's RAM. These features set the ZEOS apart from the crowd. Its SCSI upgrade option and ZIF socket, which should provide an easy upgrade path for Intel's forthcoming Pentium-based OverDrive Processor for DX2 systems, are also serious advantages."
 The article praises the ZEOS system's design and performance. "ZEOS designs its own motherboards, and the result is a clean board that reflects attention to detail," the article states. "The ZEOS's performance was outstanding in every respect .... It proved particularly fast at handling video-intensive tasks. That this performance was achieved without the help of an external CPU cache (available to customers as an option) is an indication of the ZEOS's solid design.
 "ZEOS couples smart design with excellent software options," the review concludes. "Easily upgradable, excellent video performance."
 "We're pleased to receive this honor," said Greg Herrick, chairman and CEO of ZEOS. "It's great to have a magazine like PC Computing confirm what our customers have been telling us: This truly is one of the fastest, if not the fastest, Windows machines on the market.
 "It also echoes what PC Magazine said about our 486DX2-66 system in another recent review of upgradable systems," he continued. "In that article, the same ZEOS system 'blew all competitors away, in some cases performing more than ten times as fast as competitors.'"
 The ZEOS system includes a 245MB IDE Seagate hard drive, 8 slots (6 ISA and 2 VESA-standard local bus), 7 drive bays, flash BIOS, 14-inch SVGA color monitor, 1MB video memory, 24-hour toll-free technical support, 30-day money-back guarantee, and one year limited warranty.
 ZEOS International, Ltd., manufactures and markets, direct to end users, ISA and EISA (Industry Standard and Extended Industry Standard Architecture) personal computer systems and work stations based on the Intel 80486SX, DX and DX2 microprocessors worldwide. The company also provides contract product design services through its PC Tech subsidiary.
