Summary
  • Compaq Computer Corp tries to maintain the MS-DOS operating system as an industry standard in the business market. Compaq's new line of computers have features similar to those of the IBM PS-2 line but keep the MS-DOS operating system. The computers are built around the 80386 microprocessor, have a redesigned bus structure, and a new user interface similar in function to the Microsoft Presentation Manager user interface. Compaq Portable 386 and DeskPro 386-20 are based on a 20MHz microprocessor. Portable 386 has a suggested price between $7,999 and $9,999. DeskPro 386-20 is priced from $7,499 to $12,499. Microsoft and Compaq are developing an MS-DOS system with the same capabilities as OS-2.
