PowerTools first Mac OS cloners to ship Mac OS 8.0
PowerTools announced today that they will be the first Mac clone vendor to
ship Mac OS 8.0. Beginning on September 8, 1997, PowerTools will include
Mac OS 8.0 with every infiniti T2 Mac OS clone that it ships. Each infiniti
T2 will also have a full 1 year on-site warranty provided by a national
third party service provider and free (800) technical support.
The standard configuration for the newly released infiniti T2 systems is as
604e/200MHz PPC, 50Mhz Bus, Mini-Tower, 5 PCI, 8 Drive bays, 3D graphics
32MB/3.2GB/16x/512k/2vram/4MB video card/video in-out/TV tuner/KB/Mac OS
This is in response to the current changes by Apple concerning the
licensing of Mac OS 8. "Although the price for the infiniti T2 is slightly
higher," says Victor Wong, CEO of PowerTools,"we feel that it is necessary
to provide the latest version of the Mac OS for our valued customers. If
along the way it helps to make Apple profitable once again, then to us it
is a win-win situation. However, we are providing much more value than the
bump in price for Mac OS 8.0, we are guaranteeing that your new computer
will have solid service and technical support. "
Due to the questions that are now circulating concerning Mac OS licensing,
these additional assurances are necessary. "PowerTools still retains every
single license that it had when it started. We are still shipping, we are
still developing new systems, and our contract says that we have at least
four more years to do so." states Wong, "We're already planning our New
Years Party for the year 2000."
Although many think that Mac OS licensing may be over, Wong states the
following, "Apple has said that Mac OS licensing is not over, it just has
to be different. This is a game and the rules change from time to time. It
may not always be fair, but you have to change with it. You cannot fight
against the ocean tides, but you can learn to swim with dignity. We've got
our swimming shorts on."
