Macintosh Workstations

Macintosh Workstations MacWorld Expo Report. With over 400 vendors filling some 1400 booths in San Francisco's Moscone Center and Brooks Hall and Civic Auditorium, MacWorld Expo clearly demonstrated that the Apple Macintosh had matured in its first half decade as a computing choice on its own grounds and as a vehicle to work with other computers. As usual, there were a number of hardware and software announcements but none as anticipated as those from Apple Computer. It was well known that Apple would describe at the Expo a new version of its most popular CPU, the Macintosh SE, thanks in large part to leaks at Apple that supplied page one copy for MacWeek in three consecutive issues before the Conference. Nevertheless, there was hope that in spite of these previews, Apple might start the year off with a huge surprise, describing the ofthinted and wishedfor laptop Mac, or a highend model utilizing erasable optical disk technology. There were no surprises from Apple, other than the obvious that there will be a number of CPU options for the prospective Macintosh owner by the end of the calendar year. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Workstation Report Emerald Publishing

Abstract

MacWorld Expo Report. With over 400 vendors filling some 1400 booths in San Francisco's Moscone Center and Brooks Hall and Civic Auditorium, MacWorld Expo clearly demonstrated that the Apple Macintosh had matured in its first half decade as a computing choice on its own grounds and as a vehicle to work with other computers. As usual, there were a number of hardware and software announcements but none as anticipated as those from Apple Computer. It was well known that Apple would describe at the Expo a new version of its most popular CPU, the Macintosh SE, thanks in large part to leaks at Apple that supplied page one copy for MacWeek in three consecutive issues before the Conference. Nevertheless, there was hope that in spite of these previews, Apple might start the year off with a huge surprise, describing the ofthinted and wishedfor laptop Mac, or a highend model utilizing erasable optical disk technology. There were no surprises from Apple, other than the obvious that there will be a number of CPU options for the prospective Macintosh owner by the end of the calendar year.
