Mac clone vendor cuts prices

Power Computing, the first licensed manufacturer of Apple Macintosh OS clones, has slashed prices up to $700 on its PowerWave and PowerCurve lines.

Power Computing, the first licensed manufacturer of Apple Macintosh OS clones, has slashed prices up to $700 on its PowerWave and PowerCurve lines.

The price tag for Power's high-end PowerWave 604/150 system has dropped from $4,499 to $3,799. The system includes 16MB of RAM; a 1GB hard drive; 512K of Level 2 cache; a quad-speed CD-ROM; and a 64-bit PCI video card with 2MB of VRAM.

The company also lowered the price on its mid-range PowerWave 604/132 system from $3,699 to $3,499. The system is configured identically as the 604/150 but with 256K of Level 2 cache. The company also cut the price for the desktop version of the PowerWave from $3,649 to $3,449.

The entry-level PowerCurve 601/120 system, designed for home users, has been reduced from $1,849 to $1,799. The system comes with 8MB of RAM and a 840MB hard drive.

The price cuts follow weeks of speculation by industry observers that Apple, under new chief Gil Amelio, will leave the consumer market--and the associated periodic price-slashing--to the clone manufacturers while it concentrates on specialized market niches, such as high-end graphics and education.
