NEW MODELS OF THE IBM PERSONAL COMPUTER
5150 SYSTEM UNIT/KEYBOARD INCREASE
MEMORY CAPACITY
       On March 11, 1983, IBM announced four new models of the
IBM Personal Computer, 5150, providing an increase in the memory
capacity of the system board up to 256KB and total IBM Personal
Computer memory capacity of 640KB. The new Models 114, 164, and
174 replace the IBM Personal Computer Models 14, 64, and 74,
which are withdrawn from marketing, and the Model 104 replaces
the Model 1, which was withdrawn from marketing earlier.
       Highlights
.  Memory capacity of the system board has been increased to
   256KB in the new Models 114, 164, and 174, which replace the
   Models 14, 64, and 74, respectively. This allows expansion of
   the system unit memory using 64KB Memory Modules (#1003) from
   64KB to 256KB without adding Memory Expansion Options.
.  A new Model 104 has been introduced to replace the withdrawn
   Model 1.
.  Overall memory capacity of the 5150 has been increased to
   640KB.
       Planned availability: The Model 104 will be scheduled as
available. New orders for the Models 114, 164, and 174 will be
scheduled in August 1983. Current orders will continue to be
shipped as ordered until May 27, 1983 at which time the Model 64
will be automatically replaced with  Model 164 and until July 29,
1983 when the Models 14 and 74 will be automatically replaced
with Models 114 and 174.
       Description: The 5150 System Unit/Keyboard Model 104 is
the base for all other configurations of the 5150 System
Unit/Keyboard. It contains 64KB of memory on the system board.
       The Model 114 is designed to meet the requirements of
customers who want a 5 1/4-inch 160KB or 180KB diskette based
system with a single diskette drive and 64KB of memory installed
on the system board.
       The Model 164 is designed to meet the requirements of
customers who want a 5 1/4-inch 320KB or 360KB diskette based
system with a single diskette drive and 64KB of memory installed
on the system board.
       The Model 174 is designed to meet the requirements of
customers who want a 5 1/4-inch 320KB or 360KB diskette based
system with two 5 1/4-inch diskette drives and 64KB of memory
installed on the system board.
       Customer responsibilities: The customer is responsible for
unpacking the system components and assembling them correctly.
       Customer setup: The IBM Personal Computer is a customer
set-up (CSU) machine. Detailed set-up instructions are included
with each machine.
       Data security: The IBM Personal Computer can be used and
managed so as to limit the risk of unintended modification,
destruction, or disclosure of sensitive data. The customer is
responsible for the selection, implementation, and adequacy of
appropriate measures. The customer is also responsible for the
accuracy and integrity of results.
       Warranty period: Three months.
       Warranty service: Warranty service for the IBM Personal
Computer, 5150, may be obtained by calling the toll-free number
of the IBM National Support Center (NSC) - 800-428-2569 (from
Hawaii or Alaska call collect to 312-986-7451). The NSC will
arrange for service at the nearest IBM service/exchange center
(S/EC) and will direct the customer to bring the failing system
with them or at the customer's option, to mail the unit to an
S/EC that offers mail-in service. If the customer has previously
purchased either the Pickup/Delivery or the On-Site Warranty
Option, the NSC will arrange to provide service under the terms
and conditions of the applicable option. Customers may also
obtain warranty service through authorized IBM Personal Computer
dealers.
       Maintenance service: Maintenance service is offered by IBM
and is available under the terms and conditions of the IBM
Personal Computer Service Agreement and the IBM On-Site
Amendement to IBM Personal Computer Service Agreement.
       Time and materials service: Time and materials service may
be obtained by calling the National Support Center (NSC)
toll-free number. The NSC will direct the customer to carry, or
mail if more convenient, the failing system unit to the nearest
service/exchange center offering time and material repair.
       Self service: In addition to the IBM service offerings,
the customer may purchase the Hardware Maintenance and Service
package which will enable the customer to isolate a problem to an
under-the-cover field replaceable unit (FRU).
       Terms and conditions: A customer may order up to five
systems for pilot or more under the volume procurement plan
(VPA). All pilot systems will be shipped at the same time. The
customer will be charged the unit price for these pilot systems.
The customer will have four months from shipment of the pilot
systems to sign a volume procurement amendment for any additional
quantity. If the customer elects to do this, the pilot system
quantity will be included in the additional quantities to
determine the volume procurement discount percent to be applied
to the additional quantities, but no reduction in price will
apply to the pilot systems quantity.
       Discount schedule
Quantity of Eligible
Machines for each Category     Discount Percent
20 - 49                             12%
50 - 149                            16%
150 or more                         20%
       Customers whose requirements will not result in VPA
quantities may purchase from a product center, where a single
delivery/quantity discount is available for customers willing to
accept the quantity ordered in a single delivery at the product
center.
       Each product center will accept and process orders within
its trading area. Major credit cards are accepted by the product
centers.
       Testing allowance: None.
       Educational allowance: The educational allowance is 20% to
qualifying institutions for order quantities of 1 - 49. A VPA
discount is not additive to the educational allowance.
