           DESCRIPTION
           IBM OPERATING SYSTEM/2 STANDARD EDITION VERSION 1.2
           The many enhancements available today for IBM Operating System/2
           Standard Edition are an advance for the implementation of SAA on
           programmable workstations.  The availability of the SAA Dialog
           Manager in the IBM OS/2 Programming Tools and Information Version
           1.2, and the enhancements to the Presentation Manager (TM) emphasize
           IBM's commitment to SAA.
            (TM) Trademark of International Business Machines Corporation.
           OS/2 INFORMATION PRESENTATION FACILITY:  The OS/2 Information
           Presentation Facility provides the application developer with an
           easy-to-use facility to define help panels and built-in functions
           (independent of application flow and logic) to service end-user help
           requests made during application execution.
                  The easy-to-use OS/2 Information Presentation Facility
           Compiler for help panels makes it possible for the panels to be
           developed by someone other than the actual programmer, such as a
           person skilled in building information products.  Later, the panels
           and the application processing code can be combined into the total
           application.  The OS/2 Information Presentation Facility can also
           provide linkage to a tutorial and/or any other program provided by
           the application programmer.
                  Both Presentation Manager and Dialog Manager applications may
           use the services of the OS/2 Information Presentation Facility.
           Programmers who use the OS/2 Information Presentation Facility when
           writing Presentation Manager applications can increase their
           productivity by not having to support help requests directly.  They
           have an easy-to-use OS/2 Information Presentation Facility Compiler
           in the OS/2 Programming Tools and Information Version 1.2.  By using
           OS/2 Information Presentation Facility, consistency with SAA Common
           User Access (SAA/CUA) is enabled.
           ONLINE COMMAND REFERENCE:  The usability of IBM Operating System/2
           Standard Edition has been significantly improved by placing
           traditional Command Reference information online, at the user's
           fingertips in an electronic book.  This electronic book contains
           familiar sections such as a Table of Contents, topic pages and an
           Index, which are accessed through a Presentation Manager application
           that can be windowed.
                  Using the application pull-downs, a user can search for
           specific words or phrases, maintain or view existing bookmarks, print
           one or more topic sections, or cut sections from the book and paste
           them to a file.  Individual command information includes the name of
           the command, its purpose or function, the command syntax and the
           parameter definitions.  The interface that presents the Command
           Reference (online) is the same as that used by the OS/2 Information
           Presentation Facility for presenting help panels.
                  A Command Reference hard-copy manual may be ordered
           separately.  Refer to the ORDERING INFORMATION section for details.
           DUAL BOOT:  To make it possible to boot either OS/2 or DOS from the
           same fixed disk drive, C:, a user may now run the new BOOT utility.
           Whenever the user wants to change the operating system, the BOOT
           utility is run.  Upon completion the user must re-boot the system.
           The BOOT command runs under OS/2, the DOS compatibility mode and DOS.
           NOTE:  Dual boot of OS/2 and DOS is limited to the file allocation
           table (FAT) file system.  Users who want the High Performance File
           System installed on the C: drive will be unable to have dual boot.
                  For OS/2 system installation to install dual boot on the C:
           drive, the drive must contain a bootable DOS 3.2, 3.30 or 4.00 or an
           OS/2 dual boot installed system.  However, DOS 3.30 or 4.00 is
           recommended for greater compatibility with OS/2.  Refer to the
           product publications for further guidance on usage of OS/2 dual boot.
           NEW FILE, DESKTOP AND PRINT MANAGER INTERFACES:  The OS/2 default
           user interface has been significantly enhanced to provide improved
           usability, additional function and closer conformance to the most
           current SAA/CUA Advanced Interface Design Guidelines.  Refer to the
           publication (SC26-4582) for additional information.
                  The most significant enhancements are:
           o   A new File Manager interface for displaying and manipulating
               files and subdirectories
               -   The File Manager optionally displays files as icons instead
                   of text lists, giving a more pictorial view of files.
               -   A program may be started by selecting an input file from the
                   File Manager list, "dragging" the file to a program listed by
                   either the Desktop Manager or the File Manager and "dropping"
                   the file on the desired program.  Either OS/2 or DOS programs
                   may be started by using the File Manager.
               -   Files may be moved, copied and printed by using the "drag"
                   and "drop" technique.
               -   The File Manager font can be selected from any of the
                   installed fonts, allowing the user to choose the amount of
                   information displayed on the screen.
               -   The File Manager provides an improved associate function,
                   which allows data files to be associated with one or more
                   programs either by file name or property.  When the file is
                   double clicked, the list of programs is displayed, allowing
                   the user to select which program to run.
               -   A new search function allows the searching for files, using
                   either wild cards in file names or file properties stored
                   within the file to list files meeting the specified search
                   criteria.  File lists resulting from searches may be used to
                   manipulate files in the same manner as directory lists are
                   used.
           o   A new Desktop Manager interface for adding and starting programs
               -   More than one group of programs listed in the Desktop Manager
                   can be simultaneously displayed.
               -   Icons are displayed next to program or group titles listed by
                   the Desktop Manager.
               -   Allows programs to be moved, copied or added to a program
                   group by selecting the program from the File Manager or
                   Desktop Manager list, "dragging" the program to the desired
                   group and "dropping" the program in the new group
               -   DOS programs may be added to and started from the Desktop
                   Manager program list.
           o   A new Print Manager interface for managing print requests.
               -   Allows the user to direct print output to a specific print
                   queue
               -   Allows the user to configure printers/plotters and queues
                   from the Print Manager instead of using the Control Panel.
           DIALOG MANAGER:  The IBM OS/2 Dialog Manager is a productivity aid to
           assist application developers in managing input and output between
           their applications and the end user.  The Dialog Manager is contained
           in IBM OS/2 Programming Tools and Information Version 1.2.
           NOTE:  For information on redistribution of Dialog Manager run time
           and files, refer to the TERMS AND CONDITIONS, LICENSING section.
                  The IBM OS/2 Dialog Manager provides significant elements of
           the interface for the SAA Dialog Manager discribed in the SAA
           publication, COMMON PROGRAMMING INTERFACE DIALOG REFERENCE
           (SC26-4356).
                  Application developers using the Dialog Manager can
           efficiently implement application dialogs that take advantage of
           Presentation Manager facilities.  The Dialog Manager provides
           application programming interfaces (APIs) for the dialog elements
           dealing with display-related services, dialog variable handling
           (function pools) and create/end dialog session control.
                  The Dialog Tag Language (DTL), also described in the CPI
           Dialog Reference, is used to define dialog elements other than
           application program logic: application panels, help panels,
           application command tables and messages.  The compiler to process
           panels written in the DTL is contained in IBM OS/2 Programming Tools
           and Information Version 1.2.
                  The Dialog Manager and the DTL help the application conform to
           SAA/CUA as described in the publication, SYSTEMS APPLICATION
           ARCHITECTURE COMMON USER ACCESS ADVANCED INTERFACE DESIGN GUIDE
           (SC26-4582).
                  The general structure of the OS/2 Dialog Manager may be
           recognized by current dialog developers (EZ-VU or ISPF), facilitating
           the migration of current dialogs to the IBM OS/2 environment.
                  Dialog Manager programs may be written in C/2 (TM) 1.1,
           FORTRAN/2 (TM), Macro Assembler/2 (TM), Pascal Compiler/2 (TM), and
           COBOL/2 (TM).
            (TM) Trademark of International Business Machines Corporation.
           HIGH PERFORMANCE FILE SYSTEM:  The High Performance File System
           manages large disk media in a fast and consistent manner.  The High
           Performance File System is an attractive alternative to the file
           allocation table or FAT-based file system because it supports DASD
           with as many as 16 partitions and can handle partitions as large as 2
           gigabytes.  The High Performance File System maintains compatibility
           with the FAT file system at the API level, is less performance
           sensitive as file sizes and/or directories get very large, and can
           work with files that have either the traditional or new long file
           name characteristic.  The system installation procedure is used to
           optionally install the High Performance File System.
                  If a partition is formatted for use by the High Performance
           File System, the contents of that partition will be lost.  Copies of
           existing files should be made before that partition is formatted.
           After the partition is formatted, the copied files may then be placed
           in the newly formatted partition and accessed using the High
           Performance File System.
                  Files created using the High Performance File System may be
           accessed by programs running in the DOS environment of OS/2.  Files
           created using the High Performance File System may not be accessed by
           either DOS 3.3 or 4.00.
                  The High Performance File System is implemented to be bootable
           as the C: drive.
           NOTE:  The file system will be enhanced to preserve the case of the
           file name when the file is created or renamed.  Utilities will be
           enhanced to allow for a space and other special characters to be
           imbedded within quoted file names.  (To be available November 30,
           1989 -- refer to UPDATE ordering information.)
           NEW PRINTER DEVICE DRIVERS:  All device drivers delivered with
           Version 1.1, either with the product or with its device support
           supplement, will be packaged as separate media and shipped with the
           Version 1.2 base operating system.
                  A PostScript (1) driver is included with IBM Operating
           System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 to allow applications to output
           PostScript to the IBM Personal Page Printer II Models 4216-30, 031
           and to other printers with PostScript output capabilities.
                  A generic Printer Control Language device driver that supports
           printers compatible with the Hewlett Packard LaserJet and LaserJet II
           series of Printers will be available November 30, 1989, in an IBM
           Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 UPDATE.  (Refer to
           the UPDATE ordering information)
                  An Epson device driver is included with IBM Operating System/2

           PRESENTATION MANAGER ENHANCEMENTS:  The Presentation Manager has
           further enhanced its SAA/CUA enabling by providing more function and
           greater usability for both application developers and end users.
           Some of the CUA enhancements are enabled automatically; others will
           require that the application be changed.
                  In addition to previously announced enhancements, the
           Presentation Manager now takes full advantage of the new OS/2
           Information Presentation Facility.  Presentation Manager programmers
           may produce help screens using all of the functions of the OS/2
           Information Presentation Facility.  Use of the OS/2 Information
           Presentation Facility by both the Presentation Manager and
           applications, ensures consistency of use and appearance across the
           system and applications.  The help screens for the Presentation
           Manager itself have been produced using the OS/2 Information
           Presentation Facility Compiler.
                  Presentation Manager programs may be written in IBM FORTRAN/2
           and IBM COBOL/2 (refer to the note in the section on IBM OS/2
           Programming Tools and Information Version 1.2 on FORTRAN/2 and
           COBOL/2) as well as IBM C/2 1.1 and IBM Macro Assembler/2.
           OTHER IBM OPERATING SYSTEM/2 STANDARD EDITION ENHANCEMENTS
           SYSTEM EDITOR ENHANCEMENTS:  The system editor in IBM OS/2 now
           executes as a windowed Presentation Manager application.  Files
           created with the Version 1.1 system editor are compatible with
           Version 1.2.  The appearance and operational characteristics of the
           Version 1.2 system editor are designed to the SAA/CUA definition.
           IBM DOS COMPATIBILITY:  The DOS environment of IBM Operating System/2
           Standard Edition Version 1.2 protects a user's investment in current
           software by providing the capability to run existing IBM DOS
           programs, subject to certain limitations described in the IBM
           Operating System/2 documentation.  OS/2 SE 1.2 will have a larger DOS
           environment than the one in OS/2 SE 1.1.
                  Generally, the DOS environment is compatible to a subset of
           IBM DOS 4.00 function.  Support for disk files greater than 32MB was
           included in IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1, and
           is available in DOS compatibility mode.  The IBM DOS 4.00 support for
           greater than 25 lines of text mode display, and support for
           additional video modes for Personal System/2 (R) (PS/2 (R)) displays
           are also available in DOS compatibility mode.  The remaining new IBM
           DOS 4.00 functions, such as the DOS Shell or LIM/EMS, are not
           supported.  The interface for the DOS compatibility environment has
           been significantly enhanced by allowing DOS programs to be started
           from either the Desktop Manager or the File Manager.  The DOS command
           line interface that resembles the one in IBM DOS 3.30 is also
           provided.  The family API provided with IBM Operating System/2 allows
           programs to be written that will run on IBM DOS 3.30, IBM DOS 4.00,
           IBM OS/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1 or IBM OS/2 Standard Edition
           Version 1.2.
            (R) Registered trademark of International Business Machines
              Corporation.
           RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY AND SERVICEABILITY (RAS):  The RAS
           capabilities of IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition have been
           enhanced with several new or modified functions.  Improvements have
           been made for the collection, logging and reporting of detailed
           information if a system error occurs.  These improvements permit a
           problem to be isolated faster and more accurately.
                  Consistency between the Standard and Extended versions of IBM
           OS/2 has been improved by making the application of corrective
           service appear more nearly the same on both products.
           ADDITIONAL VERSION 1.2 ENHANCEMENTS:  Additional enhancements have
           been made to improve data integrity, performance and usability.
                  The system can now accommodate 64,000 file handles, 32,000 per
           process.
           HARDWARE RELATED ENHANCEMENTS
           DEVICE INDEPENDENCE:  The display and mouse device support have been
           rewritten for IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 to
           facilitate the attachment of other displays and mice that normally
           may not have been supported by IBM Operating System/2 Standard
           Edition.

TECHINFO   TECHNICAL INFORMATION
           SPECIFIED OPERATING ENVIRONMENT
           MACHINE REQUIREMENTS:  The minimum hardware configuration for IBM
           Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 is as follows:
           o   One of the following system units with a minimum of 2MB of memory
               for running OS/2 applications, or a minimum of 2.5MB of memory
               for running OS/2 and DOS applications.  The actual amount of
               memory required is a function of the working set requirements of
               the operating system and applications.  There are typical
               application scenarios that require significantly greater amounts
               of memory and DASD storage.  Refer to the IBM OPERATING SYSTEM/2
               INFORMATION AND PLANNING GUIDE (G360-2650) for assistance in
               estimating total memory requirements.
                      Customers should consult documentation for their specific
               processors to determine available memory options and ordering
               information.

                  IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 supports
           the previous display adapters as follows:
           o   The Presentation Manager session supports display adapters in All
               Points Addressable Mode at the highest possible resolution for
               that adapter, except in the following cases:
               -   Support for the EGA adapter with 64KB will be at a resolution
                   of 640 X 200 in mono mode.
               -   Support for the PS/2 Display Adapter 8514/A with an 8503,
                   8512, or 8513 PS/2 Display will be in VGA mode.
               -   Support for the PS/2 Display Adapter 8514/A with an 8514 IBM
                   PS/2 Color Display or 8507 IBM PS/2 Monochrome Display, and
                   without the Memory Expansion Kit (#4081, 1887989) will be in
                   VGA mode.
                          Support for a fully populated PS/2 Display Adapter
                   8514/A with an 8514 IBM PS/2 Color Display or 8507 IBM PS/2
                   Monochrome Display will be at a resolution of 1024 x 768.
           o   OS/2 mode applications running in sessions outside the
               Presentation Manager control the mode of the display adapter.
           NOTE:  In a non-Presentation Manager screen group, an IBM Operating
           System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 application program can use the
           IBM 8514/A Adapter in advanced function (high resolution) mode by
           issuing 8514/A adapter interface calls.
                  The adapter interface software is contained on a diskette
           shipped with the 8514/A adapter.  Customers using the 8514/A in
           advanced function mode must ensure that the adapter interface code is
           at the correct level for use with Operating System/2.  The adapter
           interface level can be determined by running HDIVER.EXE in the HDIOS2
           directory.  If this directory does not exist, the customer can order
           form number G68X-2300 at no charge.  This part number includes a new

           COMPATIBILITY:  The OS/2 Default User Interface has been
           significantly enhanced to provide increased function, better
           usability, overall appearance and conformance to CUA.  Some enhanced
           functions such as move and copy files have been modified and work
           differently from IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1.
           Refer to the programming publications for specific information on
           these changes.
                  With the following exceptions, programs designed to run under
           IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1 will run under
           IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 and do not need
           to be reinstalled.
           NOTE:  Customers who have compiled programs using IBM FORTRAN/2
           Version 1.00 or 1.01, which are to be run on IBM Operating System/2
           Standard Edition Version 1.2, must get maintenance level 1.02 of IBM
           FORTRAN/2 and recompile their programs to ensure proper function and
           correct results.
                  If the application uses certain subsystem function such as
           physical video buffer access, registering of subsystem functions, or
           character device monitors, it will be required to run in a
           full-screen OS/2 session.  Otherwise, the application can be windowed
           by specifying it as RUN IN A TEXT WINDOW when installing the
           application under the OS/2 Presentation Manager.
                  Licensees of BASIC Compiler/2, Macro Assembler/2, Pascal
           Compiler/2 or C/2 Version 1.0 may submit the CodeView Update order
           form contained in the IBM OS/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 package
           to receive an update to CodeView containing advanced function for
           debugging OS/2 applications.  The order form must be accompanied by
           proof of license of the eligible language product being used.  IBM
           will honor requests for the update until November 1, 1990.
           NOTE:  This CodeView update is the same update made available for IBM
           OS/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1.
                  Depending on the programming language used to develop
           applications, some capabilities of IBM Operating System/2 Standard
           Edition Version 1.2 may not be possible to implement in an
           application.
                  IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 does not
           support the SYS utility or the /s option of the FORMAT command.
                  The BACKUP and RESTORE commands are supported in protect-mode
           only.
                  Programs compiled using the Version 1.1 Presentation Manager
           will run on Version 1.2 without change.
                  The DOS environment of IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition
           Version 1.2 protects a user's investment in current software by
           providing the capability to run existing IBM DOS programs, subject to
           certain limitations described in the IBM Operating System/2
           documentation.  OS/2 SE 1.2 will have a larger DOS environment than
           the DOS environment in OS/2 SE 1.1.
                  Generally, the DOS environment is compatible to a subset of
           IBM DOS 4.00 function.  Support for disk files greater than 32MB was
           included in IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1, and
           is available in DOS compatibility mode.  The IBM DOS 4.00 support for
           greater than 25 lines of text mode display, and support for
           additional video modes for PS/2 displays are also available in DOS
           compatibility mode.  The remaining new IBM DOS 4.00 functions, such
           as the DOS Shell or LIM/EMS, are not supported.  The interface for
           the DOS compatibility environment has been significantly enhanced by
           allowing DOS programs to be started from either the Desktop Manager
           or the File Manager.  The DOS command line interface that resembles
           the one in DOS 3.30 is also provided.  The IBM Operating System/2
           Family API allows programs to be written that will run on IBM DOS
           3.30, IBM DOS 4.00, IBM OS/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1 or Version
           1.2.
                  Many existing DOS applications may be run in the DOS mode of
           OS/2.  Users should be aware that some DOS applications, such as
           communications and timing dependent programs, may not function
           properly in the DOS mode of OS/2.

           (8530-E31) requires an analog display (8503, 8512, 8513, 8514 or
           equivalent).
           PROGRAMMING REQUIREMENTS:  The following operating systems support
           the Model 30 286:
           o   Operating System/2 (TM) (OS/2 (R)) Extended Edition 1.1 or 1.2

           o   IBM Disk Operating System (DOS) Version 3.3 or Version 4.0.
                  For OS/2 memory and fixed disk configuration requirements,
           refer to the IBM OPERATING SYSTEM/2 INFORMATION AND PLANNING GUIDE
           (G360-2650).
            (TM) Trademark of International Business Machines Corporation.
            (R) Registered trademark of International Business Machines
              Corporation.
           COMPATIBILITY:  The IBM Personal System/2 Model 30 286 (8530-E31) is
           compatible with the IBM Personal Computer (5150), Personal Computer
           XT and Personal Computer AT at the BIOS interface level (BIOS not
           identical) and at most hardware interfaces.  The Model 30 286 has
           been designed to maintain compatibility with existing personal
           computer software and non-timing dependent features.  Due to the high
           level of integration, features such as Personal Computer XT and
           Personal Computer AT memory upgrades and graphic adapters are not
           supported.  Specific hardware products, features and software
           products that have been tested and are supported in the Model 30 286
           environment are listed in ATTACHMENT A.  The Model 30 286 has not
           been tested with all non-IBM features/options.  Additional
           information on the interface and attachment requirements may be
           obtained by reviewing the IBM PERSONAL SYSTEM/2 MODEL 30 286
           TECHNICAL REFERENCE (S01F-0237) manual, which can be ordered through
           IBM or an authorized IBM dealer.
           LIMITATIONS:  Additional memory installed on the IBM Personal
           System/2 Multifunction Adapter (30F5364) can only be used in a
           Personal System/2 Model 30 286 with 0.5MB of memory installed on the
           system board.  Memory removed from the system board can be installed
           on the PS/2 Multifunction Adapter.
                  The ability to use a non-IBM memory expansion card in the
           Personal System/2 Model 30 286 is dependent on the flexibility of the
           card in establishing its starting memory address.  The amount of
           planar memory (standard plus kits) and the corresponding starting
           memory address is illustrated in the following table:
                  PLANAR                    EXPANSION CARD

           USER GROUP REQUIREMENTS:  The Model 30 286 (8530-E31) addresses
           numerous customer requests and satisfies (partially or fully)
           requirements submitted by the appropriate IBM User Group (for
           example, SHARE, SEAS, GUIDE, European G.U.I.D.E. and ASG).
           PLANNING INFORMATION
           CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES:  The Personal System/2 Model 30 286
           (8530-E31) is designated as customer setup (CSU).  CSU allowance is
           one day.
           CABLE ORDERS:  No cabling is required, other than for system power
           and display connections.  Cables are provided with the system unit,
           display, and keyboard, and the instructions are provided as part of
           initial setup.
           INSTALLABILITY:  By following the setup instructions, the user
           attaches the keyboard and peripherals and inserts the Reference
           Diskette.  Power is then turned on and Set Configuration is run after
           the computer has successfully completed its initial self-tests.
           The Model 30 286 has a universal power supply with an external switch
           and may, therefore, be used worldwide.  Additionally, there are no
           setup switches.
           PROBLEM DETERMINATION:  If a failure is found at initial
           installation, an instruction will appear on the screen.  If the test
           is successfully completed, the system attempts to load an operating
           system from the A drive.  If an operating system is not found, the
           system attempts to load one from the C fixed disk drive.  If an
           operating system is not found, the user will be prompted to insert a
           diskette via an icon.  A final default is provided through the use of
           a ROM-loaded BASIC interpreter as explained in the GUIDE TO
           OPERATIONS.
                  The troubleshooting procedures consist of a power-on self
           test, diagnostic tests, and easy-to-follow troubleshooting charts
           designed to assist the user in isolating a defective machine element.
           The failing element can then be replaced or repaired under existing
           warranty provisions.

           IBM PERSONAL SYSTEM/2 EXTERNAL 5.25-INCH 360KB DISKETTE ADAPTER KIT
           (#4114) (27F4245):  This accessory provides an internal diskette
           drive adapter cable that attaches to the diskette drive adapter card
           (6450244) and allows the attachment of the IBM Personal System/2
           5.25-inch External Diskette Drive (4869-001).  An installation
           instruction is included in the kit.  Both the diskette drive adapter
           and the external diskette drive must be ordered separately.
           IBM SOFTWARE COMPATIBILITY
           The following IBM licensed programs are compatible with Model 30 286
           and DOS 3.3 or DOS 4.0, and will operate substantially as described
           in their program documentation.
                  The part numbers referenced in the 3.5-inch and 5.25-inch
           columns reflect the diskette media on which the product was tested.
           The absence of a part number in a column does not imply necessarily
           that the product is not available on that medium.

           DESCRIPTION
                  The new models of the Personal System/2 Model 70 family, the
           8570-061 and the 8570-A61, offer a new combination of 20MHz or 25MHz
           80386 processor speed and 60MB fixed disk capacity.  The system
           features a 80386 microprocessor and 2MB of high speed memory
           expandable to 16MB with memory options.
                  The 8570 comes standard with:
           o   1.44MB, 3.5-inch diskette drive
           o   Fixed disk drive with integrated controller
           o   Keyboard port
           o   Pointing device port
           o   Serial/asynchronous port
           o   Parallel port
           o   Video Graphics Array (VGA) port
           o   Three I/O slots
           o   Keyboard.
                  The VGA port supports graphics and text modes including
           640 x 480 graphics, 320 x 200 graphics in 256 colors, and 720 x 400
           text, and yet maintains compatibility with Color Graphics Adapter
           (CGA) and Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) modes.
                  The fixed disk drive has a capacity of 60MB.  The fixed disk
           controller is integrated with the drive.

                  The system has two levels of BIOS that total 128KB.  The
           Compatibility BIOS (CBIOS) with memory addressability of up to 1MB
           provides compatible support for current application programs.  An
           additional version of BIOS, Advanced BIOS (ABIOS) provides support
           for multi-tasking operating systems and has extended memory
           addressability up to 16MB.
                  The high level of feature integration on the system board
           reduces the requirement for optional adapters.  Memory on the system
           board can be expanded to 6MB (8570-061) or 8MB (8570-A61).  The
           optional 80387 Math Co-Processor provides enhanced performance in
           arithmetic calculations.  In addition, the system is designed for
           tool-free installation and includes security features in BIOS/CMOS
           and an external keylock.
                  The 486/25 Power Platform is an optional upgrade kit for the
           8570-A61.  It significantly increases performance by replacing the
           25MHz 80386 microprocessor with a 25MHz i486 (1) microprocessor.

           reserved for system use in systems with 16MB of memory.
           USER GROUP REQUIREMENTS:  The 8570 (061 and A61) products address
           customer requests for a range of fixed disk capacities.
           PLANNING INFORMATION
           CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES:  The 8570 is designated as customer setup.
           CABLE ORDERS:  No cabling is required, other than for system power,
           keyboard, and display connections.  Cables are provided with the
           system unit, keyboard, and display, and the instructions are provided
           as part of initial setup.
           INSTALLABILITY:  By following the setup instructions, the user
           attaches the keyboard and peripherals and inserts the Reference
           Diskette.  Power is then turned on and Set Configuration is run after
           the computer has successfully completed its initial self-tests.
           PROBLEM DETERMINATION:  If a failure is found at initial
           installation, an instruction will appear on the screen.  If the test
           is successfully completed, the system attempts to load an operating
           system from the A drive.  If an operating system is not found, the
           system attempts to load one from the C fixed disk drive.  If an
           operating system is not found, the user will be prompted to insert a
           diskette via an icon.  A final default is provided through the use of
           a ROM-loaded BASIC interpreter as explained in the Quick Reference
           manual.
