ZEOS INTRODUCES NEW LINE OF HIGH PERFORMANCE EISA-BASED PERSONAL COMPUTER SYSTEMS

 ZEOS INTRODUCES NEW LINE OF HIGH PERFORMANCE
 EISA-BASED PERSONAL COMPUTER SYSTEMS
 ST. PAUL, Minn., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its recent avalanche of new product introductions, ZEOS International, Ltd. (NASDAQ: ZEOS) today announced the immediate availability of a new line of low cost, fully featured high performance personal computer systems.
 These new systems employ the Enhanced Industry Standard Architecture (EISA) bus that provides full 32-bit data communications to add-on peripherals, and are available with Intel 486DX-33, 486DX2-50 and 486DX2-66 microprocessors. Yet starting at only $1,995 for a complete unit including hard drive and monitor, the new ZEOS 486 EISA systems provide this very high performance 32-bit computing at prices near those of most competitors' systems featuring only a 16-bit Industry Standard Architecture (ISA) bus.
 According to Rick Apple, vice president of marketing for ZEOS International, "This new EISA line of desktop and vertical personal computer systems provides our EISA customers the opportunity to access many of the technologies available in our new ISA line announced in August. Features like microprocessor upgradability all the way up to the 1993 Overdrive processor based on Intel's Pentium(TM) architecture; a FLASH EPROM for easy BIOS upgrades via disk or modem, and a new more highly integrated chip set to improve reliability, expandability and performance."
 Other enhancements over most competitors' product offerings included a standard 256K memory cache, support for system memory of up to 64 megabytes on the main system board, and a ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) socket for easy microprocessor upgrades.
 Commenting on ZEOS's recent flurry of new product announcements, President Greg Herrick said that "This new line of 486 EISA systems is only the latest in ZEOS's new and broadening product offerings. The ZEOS Color Notebook, one of the smallest and lightest color notebooks on the market was announced in June. The 1.3 pound ZEOS Pocket PC, probably the most functional pocket computer available anywhere was also announced in June. The ZEOS Freestyle/SL with its dramatic display technology and other one-of-a-kind features was announced in July. The new line of ISA-based ZEOS Upgradables with its VESA standard local bus technology and on-board SCSI option was announced in August. And now we are announcing the new EISA-based systems in October. These products are all leaders in their categories and the message is clear -- ZEOS is well positioned to be the one-stop vendor of choice no matter what an individual's or corporation's computing needs."
 ZEOS offers its customers the opportunity to custom-configure systems to their exact specifications. Options for the new 486 EISA systems include, among others, high speed memory ranging from 1-to-64 megabytes, hard disk drives from 85 megabytes to 1.1 gigabytes, high resolution color displays, and tape backup units.
 The ZEOS 486 EISA personal computer systems are available directly from the company by calling the ZEOS 24-hour-a-day order line. The toll-free number is 800-423-5891. ZEOS also provides purchasers of its systems with a 24-Hour-a-Day Toll-Free help line should they have any questions once they have received their system. In addition, purchasers receive a 30-day money-back guarantee and a one full year limited warranty.
