BUYERS' GUIDE TO HARDWARE

Welcome to the third edition of the Computer Publications Buyers' Guide to Hardware. The response to previous guides indicates that they are indeed a useful tool. Improvements to this year's guide make the information contained in it even more accessible. There are more tables in this issue. Information is comparitively easy to assimilate in this form. The chapter on service and accessory suppliers is completely tabular now. The suppliers index has been upgraded and includes a statement from each distributor outlining its marketing strategy. This adds depth to that section and gives a glimpse of the company itself as well as the products that it supplies. We wish you all the best in your search for hardware products in '89/90 and look forward to being on your bookshelf until next year.

Using the Guide to Hardware

For obvious reasons, this is not the type of book you'd read from front to back. Therefore, we have provided a number of tools that enable you to extract the information you need.

Buying the right hardware c be . a daunting experience. Most adv1srs m the computer industry have vested interests and tend to throw jargon around as if it were actually going to assist in some way. The Buyers' Guide to mrdware aims to steer you towards making the right purchasing decision, and pesents a clear, comprehensive overview of what's available in the marketplace. Whether it be a printer, a monitor or a communications solution you need, product information has been colleced and compiled into meaningful categones for easy comparison. Categories are two-tiered. Firstly, each chapter within the Buyers' Guide to Hardware represents a different function performed by microcomputer hardware. For example, there is a chapter for the processors themselves, another for output devices (printers), and a chapter for display devices (primarily monitors). Input devices, storage devices, expansion cards and devices that link computers together also have their own chapters. These product chapters are followed . by a chapter listing the companies that provide services or sell accessories and consumables for computers. Secondly, within these chapters, products are grouped into similar types of competing products. In fact, we have tried to predict the decisions that you might make before you start your research. We assume, for example, that

YOU?

you will decide whether you want a laptop computer or a desktop PC before you start worrying about how fast the processor runs. To assist you in picking your way through product information, ach chapter begins with a short ut(me of he organisation employed within, and _ineludes a listing of the product categones. This explains the methodology used for dividing up the chapters and ensures tat you can turn to the relevant section quickly. Each chapter ends with a glossary of terms to take the mystery out of the language used in describing the products. Introductory articles have been incorporated into the front of the Guide and have been written with the first-time user in mind. The topics covered aim to provide an indication of where the market is going, which products and features are here to stay and which are becoming redundant. They should assist you in dealing with the volume of terminology and dubious sales hype that many sales people will try and inundate you with. Tables are included at the end of chapters or - as is the case towards the end of the Guide - make up chapters in their own right. The tables outline the major features of those products where the distributor has supplied the necessary information. These are especially useful for comparing a large number of products and compiling a short list of the most likely candidates. Tables should be read in conjunction with the product descriptions as man}' features not covered in the tables are described there. Updated tabular information appears regularly in PC Week. The PC Week Buyers' Guides concentrate on a particular subject of interest in detail, each week. The lists of suppliers included at the end of each chapter give you a ready reference to the companies active in a given area. They are useful in a number of ways. Besides the obvious relevance to people doing business in a certain product area, they can also assist in tracking down a company, checking the company name or simply investigating if it distributes a particular type of product. While the descriptions of products have been supplied by distributors, they have all been edited to ensure an evenhanded approach and readability. They include notes about features that might not have been mentioned in the tables and, where there has been no

tabular information supplied, sometimes make up the only information available. It is impossible to avoid jargon in this industry. Therefore, as well as trying to minimise it, we have included the glossaries of terms. These glossaries not only make the information in the tables comprehensible, but they also offer insight into the many aspects of a particular type of product. In a nutshell, the glossaries are a very concise summary of the state of the art in a given area of technology. tributor(s) if you know the name of the manufacturer. This is also useful for people who want to do business with overseas companies. It tells a tale of local distributorships and may even give an indication of a manufacturers' attitude toward exclusivity. Between these three indices you should be able to add flesh - well let's stick to silicon - to vague memories, rumours or other sources of incomplete information. If, however, you can't find the product at all, then it's more than likely that the rumour you are chasing is exactly that. It is also still true, unfortunately, that there are a lot of products manufactured overseas that do not cross these shores.

Having overheard two industry heavies at the next table in the exhibition centre cafe discussing a super new electronic wonder, you are desperate to get hold of one.

 

Who's who

 

'In a nutshell, the glossaries are a very concise summary of the state of the art in a given area of technology.'

Alternatively, it might be that the boss has rushed fuming from his office, raving that in this modern day and age it must be possible to perform a ridiculously simple function, automatically. A half remembered review lurks in the back of your brain, but how do you get hold of the item that your employer demands? There are three snippets of information that will enable you to hunt down Product X in the Buyers' Guide. The alphabetic product index is the immediate obvious solution if you know the product name. It will direct you to the correct page and give you the name of the distributor and manufacturer as well as numerous other details, within seconds. Sometimes a little creative searching may be required. The product might be listed with a brand name in front of it, or by a model number rather than a descriptive name. In the worst case, you would have to scan the product names in the chapters that you felt were appropriate. Should you have a distributor name instead, then the distributor index will tell you which chapters the suppliers have entries in. In addition, the manufacturers index will enable you to track down the dis-

The distributor index enables readers to contact a distributor and order a product, or to find the local distributor's name. This index provides a comprehensive picture of the companies that operate within the microcomputer industry in Australia. Branch office addresses are provided along with a company profile supplied by the company itself. The profile is intended to help you form a picture of the company, its attitude and positioning in the market. This might be useful if you have a shortlist of fairly similar products. A list of chapters in which a company has product entries also serves to give readers an indication of the range of products handled. Due to limitations on space and time, this index does not inrJl!de dealers there are far too many of them. Many distributors are reluctant to supply their dealers lists. However, all companies that import products or manufacture locally are listed. This means that only products imported by distributors appear beside their name in the index. For example, a company that imports motherboards and keyboards, but sources its hard disks and monitors locally, is going to appear in this index as a motherboard and keyboard importer, rather than as a total systems supplier. We are reassured by reader feedback for previous issues that these Guides are more than occasionally useful. We trust that you will find them valuable again this year. It is a major undertaking to compile these issues, and we would like to thank those suppliers who have willingly complied with our requests for what is inevitably, quite detailed information. Suggestions for improving future Guides are welcome.

Accounting for your needs

Walter Dowling points out that finding the best deal and planning for the future can be a little difficult if you try to do both at the same time.

I am an accountant. This is often perceived as a fairly dull-okay, downright dull - occupation, but neither was the wise old owl renowned for party antics. The problem with being an accountant is that you have to work to the bottom line. Every one else in the company has bright ideas - a flair for selling or solving the problems associated with nuclear fusion - but the accountant somehow has to make the figures add up so that there is a profit at the end of the year. Computers present the accountant with a classic dilemma. They are expensive - it is easy to waste a lot of money on the wrong system - but they are an indispensable way of saving large sums of money. Most of an accountant's work takes the form of processing numbers, an application that computers are supposedly well suited to but never seem to do quite right. It's not that they make errors, but simply that they never seem to be able to produce the exact report needed. This recalcitrance is triply frustrating if you just happened to grow up in the age of the ledger and log table, and worked and trained using comptometers and double-sided entry books. A company was either well organised or not. If it was, the accounts were up to date: the right reports were generated on the right day of the month, and you could sit burning the midnight oil with the person who had added endless columns of figures incorrectly, and get them right. Working for such a company, you could well be forgiven for conceiving that the strange box in the comer noisily spitting out reams of pages could somehow revolutionise your life. However,

when it became obvious to management that you actually liked sitting around at audit time with your green pencil and books spread across the table - that it was part of the 'style' of being an accountant - management's argument really got gritty: the computer was going to replace some of your colleagues and make the bottom line easier to keep black. A sacristy had been defiled. So we smirked over teething problems and laughed through the months where the computer data was lost, and trotted back to the books to get the 'real' figures. But the computer eventually found its feet. A generation of accountants are now emerging that have never seen a log table. For them, the computer is a tool much like a ruler or a rubber. And these modem young things can explain relatively easily why it is that the rei;>ort you want cannot be produced given ',he type of data structure employed and the size of the ROM or RAM, or whatever it is. Not that there was anything to top the flexibility of the computer in the days when we worked on paper. It is just that we were incorrectly led to believe that the computer could retrieve data in any form, once that data had been entered.

 

The best laid plans

 

The point of this slightly digressive tale is that I am now hardened and suspicious when it comes to agreeing that $130,000 in computer equipment to streamline the sales department is well spent. I will accept that a new production line should be computerised, or that while upgrading the furnace, the latest electronic gadget could be introduced. I

 

will even buy the line that goes: if we are about to re-organise a department or an invoicing procedure and it's already going to cost money, why not spend up big on new equipment as part of the change. However, I absolutely balk at the suggestion that money spent computerising something that already works fine is cost effective. Even when a computer is necessaryand I have already admitted that I have come to accept that it often is - ill advised haste, or hastily assembled advice, can often render many 'person' years of work redundant. A lot of the money that companies waste is spent in the development of software that is not right for the job. Fortunately, I am not concerned with that here. But serious errors are also made in the purchasing of hardware. There are two main classes of purchasing cock-ups as far as I am concerned. First! y, there's the 'everyone with a good idea please spend money' approach, and secondly, the much more insidious but ultimately containable: 'the expert has decided what is good for all of us and has already spent the money'. Microcomputers have encouraged people to consider local solutions. The PC is really just a cranked up calculator, but if it helps me prepare my monthly reports I should use it. This is perfectly natural and so far quite correct. However, what happens is that it does not stop there. Others copy the leader's example so that everyone who has to hand in a monthly report gets a PC and a copy of the same software package, and suddenly a de facto office standard for

Word processing catches on, but two different schools of thought muddy the waters. Differences aren't resolved and preferences overlap and so users of Spreadsheet One are into Word Processor Two, or Spreadsheet Two and Word Processor Two, too. Other combinations are possible Spreadsheet One used with Word Processor One, and even Word Processor One and no spreadsheet. Of course, all users have slightly different PCs and when a printer is plugged in nearly everyone has a different problem which is unique to their combination of computer, word processing software, spreadsheet and printer model. A committee is formed that includes no-one from accounts, and most of the PCs are put in a cupboard while new ones are bought in an attempt to standardise. Notice so far that no-one has given thought as to whether the intended solution will integrate with the long terms plan of the company. Another method mucking up the general flow of things can take on a variety of forms, but usually involves a DP manager who closets s/himself with the office manager and concocts harebrained schemes to save maternity leave costs by running programs designed to sidetrack the office social club. The end result of this activity is that nobody can get a computer to do what is wanted because there is already a priority list of unsightly jobs waiting to be done. The problem, of course, is lack of planning and the solution the reverse.

 

megalomaniac DP manager. A set of wrong-headed decisions means that a year's budget can be blown on equipment that ties the company to a policy for the following years as well. Decisions should be made in a logical sequence. What is the computer expected to do immediately? What is it to do in the long term? Asking these questions should assist you in making decisions about the type of software that you need to purchase now and the upgrade path that you require. Having decided on the type of software, you will then be able to limit your hardware options to machines that have that software available on them. How many people are to use it now? How many in the Jong term? Tackling these questions should provide some sort of indication as to the size of the machine that you need to buy.

'What is the computer expected to do immediately? What is it to do in the long term?'

It is probably better that I don't go into any further detail ... I am not an expert on computer systems, I have simply seen many companies do everything wrong. The greatest temptation with a topic as complex as computer technology is to leave it to someone else. The truth of the matter is that you have to bite the bullet. Get yourself along to some classes on strategic planning if you are not comfortable tackling the subject on your own, and make some decisions about what you need. Having made the decisions yourself allows you to dictate to the hardware suppliers what it is that you want. Also ask them to . compete on price. The slightest sign of vagueness on your part prompts them to go for the total solution sell on some imagined problem. Besides that, they will never get off your phone long enough for you to talk to anyone else for an opposing viewpoint. If I could just make one final suggestion, now that I've whipped you into a frenzy of decisive organisation and into mapping out the needs of the company for the next few years ...

There are now well established techniques for strategic planning of information technology resources. The Learmonth & Burchett Management Systems set of methods and analysis tools are well accepted, especially in the UK where they were designed. Such approaches enable management to plan the company's needs in a way that maximises the use of resources, and ensures that critical components are not forgotten or ignored. At the small business level, where the complete system might consist of one or two PCs, it is not so much a matter of coordination, but sensible decision making.

develop a version of the '486 tat uses p irnes ECL technology. This will allow t: '486 to run at a blistering lOOMHz plus and to deliver up to 120 rrups. Ho;ever, the ECL 486 won't be ready until the early 1990s, we are told. Apple's share of the microcomputer market remains healthy. The Macintosh is well accepted in the corporate world, and two machines released in the last six months, the Mac SE/30 and IICX, filled the hole that existed in the middle of the range. It seems certain from pronouncements by Apple executives that the company plans to release cheaper as well as faster machines this year. The 68030 microprocessor that runs the Mac IIX, IICX and SE/30 chugs along at a lowly 16MHz. However, Motorola has already released a 25MHz version of the 68030 and has announced that its successor, the 68040, will run at 33MHz. Once Apple has reduced its stockpile of 120ns DRAMs, expect to see faster processors in the Mac range. have been refined and are being put into production. Printers are also speeding up. Dot matrix devices are printing characters faster, while lasers are boosting their page per minute output. The other noticeable trend is that features are migrating down the price range. Therefore, it is now cheaper to buy a printer with sophisticated paper handling features than it was 12 months ago. Printer prices have fallen, but not to the extent that PCs have. Printers are still largely mechanical devices and are not affected by the same economies of scale. The design cost is a very large component in the price of any new chip, and is a one-off cost that is gradually recouped over the first few years of manufacture. After that, prices drop quickly. The manufacture of the printer's mechanical parts is always a major component of cost. However, the 'smarts' that determine such features as the fonts or paper handling are getting cheaper, enabling developers to incorporate these features into less expensive devices. The 24-pin dot matrix printers still dominate the premium end of the range, although Epson now includes a 48-pin model in its range. The cheaper end still favours 9-pin printers, but these are now beginning to rival the 24-pin in terms of print quality and features. The anomalous 18-pin devices have disappeared. Laser printers are becoming cheaper too, and entry-level versions are beginning to fall below the $3000 mark. The prices for PostScript machines are also dropping, and Adobe is pushing hard to knock them down even further. The 400dpi (dots per inch) laser printer is expected to surface within the coming year. These printers will grab the high end of the market, and will be especially suited to desktop publishing applications. Although colour lasers have been around for a while, they're still not having, much of an impact. Colour printers are either expensive or low resolution. Hewlett-Packard's PaintJet, for example, is still close to the $3000 mark and has a resolution of only I 80dpi. During the past year VGA has become the graphics standard for monitors. A system is either sold with a VGA board and monitor, or it is sold with a simple monochrome screen. However, development will not settle

Price versus speed

 

This is all great gee whiz stuff, but let s step back for a moment and see what it means for the PC hardware industry. For one thing, it's a very tough market. There's not much to differentiate one machine from another and the chip makers, most notably Intel, are continually developing their technology and cramming processing power onto each chip in order to deliver more speed. More 33MHz '386 machines will hit the market this year, and by the end of the year we will see the first PCs based on the 25MHz '486 chip. Personal computers based on the EISA (Extended Industry Standard Architecture) bus should also be available by year's end. However, it will be some time before either this new bus structure or IBM's MCA (Micro Channel architecture) dominates the high performance end of the market.

HARDWARE

Twisted-pair wiring is the lest expensive option and usually contains one or more lots of two insulated opper w1_res twisted together to form a pa1. The_ twist. m g reduces crosstalk, which is the . leakage of a signal from one w_ire to another. Until recently, unshelded twisted-pair (as opposed to shielded twisted-pair such as IBM's Type 1 able) was only suitable for low transrrussion speeds, however, the IEEE's _ IOaseT Committee is very close to issuing a high-speed standard for this medium. Optical fibre cable is the newest and also the most expensive cabling for LANs. Fibre optic cables have cylindrical glass cores surrounded b cldding material with a lower refractive index. The optical fibre acts as a waveguide for light pulses which _are modulated to act as information earners. PC workstations are connected to the LAN cable with network interface cards (NICs, but also variously known as network cards, network boards or network adaptors). The NIC fits into one of the workstation's available expansion slots (usually any slot, but sometimes conflicts with other expansion cards or boards can occur). When a workstation user sends a message to the network, the message is directed through the expansion slot and into the NIC. The NIC has on-board firmware that divides the message into units called packets and addresses them for transmission. The NIC also collects incoming packets addressed to it and passes them to the PC workstation. Part of the NI C's firmware implements a cable access scheme so that packets enter the network in an orderly manner without colliding with other packets on the network. The most common PC LAN access methods are based on contention and token passing schemes. The IEEE's contention-based 802.3 Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) standard, otherwise known as Ethernet, is the most widely used PC LAN scheme, although Token-Ring (802.5) and Token-Bus (802.4) schemes are also widely implemented. To help speed cable access and network processing, many NICs have on-board processors and their own random access memory (RAM). This is because many lower rated 8086 or even 80286-based PC workstations are hard pressed to reset the NIC after a transmission as quickly as necessary in a heavy workload environment. If the NIC isn't reset quickly enough, it loses packets, which then must be retransmitted. The processor is typically an Intel 80186 or faster CPU and the onboard memory can be anything from 8k to IMbyte. PC LAN workstations are typically IBM or IBM-compatible PCs, although most vendors now offer the capability to connect Apple Macintoshes. LANs also support 'LAN workstations' or diskless PCs, which are simply PCs without any disk drives and are typically smaller and sometimes faster than conventional PCs. Mass storage in PC LANs is usually provided by a central machine known as a file server (or network server), which is often dedicated to that task. File servers can be conventional PCs, but increasingly they are especially designed for that task. Note that with most application software available today, the file server simply manages the mass storage resources and does not actually run application programs. In many cases mass storage can also be distributed around a LAN either in the form of PC workstations with hard disk drives or purpose-built mass storage devices.

 

Desktop communications

Mark Smeaton uno:7ers the development of PC communications, and explains host connectivity, remote interconnection and local area networks.

The early days of personal computing in corporate environments were marked by a good deal of scepticism and even resistance from the older and bolder DP staff brought up on the 'bigger is better' ethos. By definition, PCs were only useful for very personalised work and as standalone machines they could be used by only one use_r at a time. Also, they ran their own applications and maintained their own data and so were incompatible with recognised DP control procedures. Not unreasonably, it was feared that their introduction was likely to lead to a duplication, or at worst, a diminution of corporate data resources. Nevertheless, users liked hem and despite the misgivings_ of the DP die-hards, PCs pro_ltferated at an alarming rate in most mainframe and mini-based corporations. They also provided the first taste of computing . power for many smaller companies that previously could not afford computing at all. With their proliferation it also became obvious that the productivity gains they broght to an company on a standalone as1s could be multiplied if they were linked to other computing resources. Consequently, a strong user-driven push developed for PC communications tools, the basic functions of which were easily identified: a way to access the corPage 18 Hardware Guide

 

porate mainframe or mini; a way to access remotely located information; and ruably the most important, a way to Join PCs together. These demands coalesced into the tree main categories of PC communications t_ht we know today: host connecnvrry, remote interconnection and local area networks (LANs). LANs can usually be distinguished from WANs (wide area networks) and MANs (metropolitan area networks) on the basis of geography. A local area network is 'local' in geographic scope - usually

 

Local area networks

 

an office, a building or a campu. WANs may span the entire country or even the globe, and MANs are usually defined as networks with a diameter of less than 50km. LANs can also be distinguished on the basis of connectivity or the ability of any node to communicate with any other node (in a PC LAN node is usually a PC, sometimes also referred to as a LAN workstation). According to the IEEE's 802 Committee, a "Local area network is a data communications system which allows a number of independent devices to communicate with each other." PC LAN hardware takes the form of building blocks which can be added and configured as needed. The basic . components are: cabling, network interface cards, workstations, network file server and mass storage devices. Cables serve as the physical medium or pathway along which interconnected PC workstations communicate. PC LAN cabling comes in several different flavour including twisted-pair, coaxial and optical fibre. The. most c_ommon cable type in use today is coaxial, or coax. Coax is made with a single wire conductor surrounded by a stranded ground wire. The two wires are_ separated by a thick insulating core, while another insulating jacket protects the outside surface.

 

Host connectivity

 

Host computer systems, whether they're mainframes or minicomputers, are designed to support workstations commonly known as 'dumb' terminals. A dumb terminal has no processing power of its own and must rely on the host for its intelligence. The idea of using PCs to replace dumb terminals was born soon after PCs started to compete with their unintelligent cousins for space on corporate desktops. The methodology employed was simply to have the PC 'emulate' or pretend to be a terminal. PCs, of course, are intelligent devices and to have them pretend to be unintelligent may not seem a forward step. However, to have the PC and the host actually process data co-operatively is an extremely complex task, and one that is only now being addressed. Terminal emulation for PCs is typically provided by an add-in board and accompanying software, although some solutions are achieved solely with software. As well as enabling the PC to pretend it's something it's not, emulation packages generally provide for file transfers, file conversions, screen dumps, multiple host sessions and context switching between host and PC sessions. Solutions in some shape or form are available for most large systems, including those from IBM, DEC, Bull, Hewlett-Packard and Data General. In the IBM environment, many

HARDWARE

emulators are available to provide the functionality of IBM's widely used 3270 series mainframe and 5250 series minicomputer (System/34, /36 and /38) terminals. Through the 3270 emulator, virtual circuits are established between the host and the terminal device. In the case of the commonly used 3270 series, the host is an IBM System/370 series computer and the PC is attached via coax to a cluster controller. IBM cluster controllers allow 327X devices to share a communications line or 370 channel in order to reduce costs. In traditional 370 products, the controller is a separate machine such as the IBM 3274 or 3276. In newer 370 machines, like the 9370, the controller function is handled by an adaptor board. Emulators are available to make the personal computer look like either the 3278 or 3279 terminal. Because the PC is not a terminal, the emulation may have to use a couple of tricks in order to look like one. For example, the 3278 Model 2 display is PC compatible with 24 lines and 80 characters; however, the Model 3 has a 33 line display and the Model 4 a 43 line display. In these cases, the emulators usually make use of the PC's PgUp and PgDn keys to control the screen. Similarly, keyboard mapping can also be a problem and many vendors provide cardboard templates which are placed over the PC's keyboard and label the function of various key combinations. The introduction of local area networks has seen a new development in PC-to-host communications - the concept of the LAN gateway. These have been developed in order to take advantage of the common communications backbone that the LAN provides. Rather than each PC being equipped with an emulator board and an individual host connection, the gateway approach makes use of a single LAN PC workstation only. This PC is usually dubbed the 'communications server' and is often equipped with a device that allows it to emulate a 3274 cluster controller. This machine is connected to the host and it 'serves' host sessions to LAN workstations. These workstations still require emulation software, but the need for individual connections and emulation boards is removed. Gateways can support up to 128 host sessions for LAN users and often can enable a particular user to have five or more simultaneous sessions running. However, a common problem with this approach is that response time on corPage 20 Hardware Guide

porate networks is rarely as good when running with a LAN gateway as with individual emulation boards. Hard-wired schemes such as LANs and PC-to-mainframe connections meet only part of many PC users' communications requirements. There is often a third requirement for remote interconnection the ability to access remotely located computers. Remote interconnections are most often achieved through the combined use of a 'modem' and the public telephone network. Modems are devices which convert the digital bits from a computer into an analogue form suitable for transmission across the telephone network. Modems come in many flavours, shapes and sizes and can be either external units or PC add-in boards. External units are generally connected by a cable to the PC's RS-232C or 'serial' communications port. Two basic criteria are used to determine their capabilities: speed and error correction.

 

Remote interconnection

 

'File servers can be conventional PCs, but increasingly they are especially designed for that task.'

Modem speeds are expressed as 'baud' rates, which are rough approximations of throughput measured in bits per second. Modems generally used in conjunction with PCs can have baud rates varying from 300 to anything up to 19,200 and beyond. These speeds and some error correction techniques have also been incorporated in a series of standards issued by the Consultative Committee for International Telegraph and Telephone (CCITT), a technical and scientific standards group based in Europe. Hence, modems are often described in terms of their CCITT compliance. For example, a V.22 modem is one that complies with the standard for I 200bps full-duplex transmission. Error correction techniques are not so clear cut, and many vendors implement proprietary methods or various levels of the widely recognised MNP protocol. Error correction is necessary in order to

 

overcome the often poor quality of telephone lines which can lead to garbled transmissions. Note that error correction often considerably slows a modem's throughput and some nominally high-speed modems often fail to achieve anything like their full rating for this reason. Pricing can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand depending on capability. However, like most computer equipment, the prices for modems are falling and several vendors are now offering 9600 baud V.32 compliant modems for around $3000. In the LAN environment, many vendors now offer asynchronous gateways which control one or more modems for the use of all network users. A gateway attached to multiple modems is known as a modem pool. 'Multiplexers' (or 'rnuxes') are another type of communications hardware commonly used in conjunction with modems. They allow a number of devices to share a single communications line and come in two primary flavours: frequency division multiplexers and time division multiplexers. A frequency division multiplexer breaks the available circuit bandwidth into subchannels, whereas a time division multiplexer shares the transmission time between communicating devices. Statistical time division multiplexers ('stat muxes') are a commonly found variation on the time division theme. Remote interconnections can also be made with packet switching X.25 networks. X.25 is another CCITT standard and has been widely implemented around the world for data communications. In Australia, the public X.25 network is known as Austpac. X.25 links can be achieved with an X.25 gateway device or with a modem. Modem-X.25 links also make use of P ADs assemblers/disas(packet semblers) in order to put the data into the right form for transmission. Some manufacturers are beginning to combine PADs and modems into integrated units. An integrated X.25 PAD/modem essentially combines the features of a standard asynchronous modem and those of a PAD into one standalone unit. With an integrated unit, an end user's call leaves his or her modem already converted into X.25 format, so the call can bypass the network's PAD and go straight into the network. These products have yet to gain widespread acceptance, but may well do with the rise in X.25 usage.

 

The big two, two years on

· the progress of the latest-generation micros from IBM and Apple Jim Seymour reviews and tells two very different tales.

portant strategic goal: getting large corporations to take the Mac senouly. From a beachhead in a very few application areas, in the hands of a _relatively small tribe of zealots, the Macintosh has moved squarely into the mainstream. What about advancing IBM's two most important strategic directions knocking off the PC clone vendors and tying together the IBM product line, from mainframes at the top to PCs at the bottom, under its SN A/SAA scheme? The PS/2s have actually boosted sales at IBM's biggest clone making competitors, which delivered more pe_rformance and value in systems built around the standard PC/ AT bus, a market that IBM simply abandoned until very recently. Sales of PC compatibles from Compaq, Tandy, and many others have boomed over the past two years, while PS/2 sales have until recently sunk well below Big Blue's expectations. . PS/2 sales were so sluggish for the first year that IBM was reduced o talking about the machines' success in Europe (the Models 30, 50 and 80) while essentially abandoning the sleepy Model 60. IBM's corporate profits sagged badly during this time. The company where no one ever gets fired offered early retirement schemes to thousands of employees and moved thousands of others out of IBM plants and offices into sales jobs. And IBM's dealers were forced back into the greymarket business. IBM's dealer pricing for PS/2s mae them profitable only when bought in huge quantities, so dealers returned to ordering many more computers than they could sell. As a result, the PS/_2 grey i:narket flourished, with machmes selling at street prices as low as $10 to $15 more than IBM's deepest dealer prices. What a story. Draw your own conclusions about the next two years.

Not so Jong ago we celebrated an odd pair of anniversaries in the personal coputer business. Two years go, on Apnl 2 1987 IBM introduced its new odd couple:, the PS/2 PCs and the OS/2 operating system. Both products were profound changes for IBM. The PS/2 abandoned the PC and PC/ AT bus designs, which were industry standards and allowed vendors of C compatibles to build whole compames around flogging IBM copies. . .. IBM also abandoned compatibility with its earlier line, at least on the physical interface level. The OS/2 operating system would, IBM assured us, tolerae MS-DOS applications, running them in what OS/2 co-developer Microsoft had been calling the 'compatibility box'. But from then on, we were told, we should look for important PC programs to be released first for OS/2, then later, if at all, for DOS. Two months earlier, Apple had rolled out the Macintosh II, marking the most profound change of direction for the company since the introduction of the Mac itself three years earlier. Where the original Mac had been small and cute, the Mac II was big and brawny. Where previous Mac hardware configurations had been resolutely standardised, the Mac II offered IBM-style expansion slots to allow users (well, third-party vendors) to virtually rebuild the machine. And, while earlier owners of Macs had soon come to apologise for their machines' lack of computing power, the Mac II reeked of power and growth. It's now two years later. Over those two years, the Mac II has succeeded in achieving Apple's most irn-

 

'OS/2 has earned even more disdain and sells today as a novelty, not as a tool.'

Sales of the Macintosh II soared. Apple was buoyed by the flood of cash; dealers found the Mac II such a powerful sell that street prices stayed near list. Machines were often in short supply. And at IBM, what hath the PS/2s and OS/2 wrought? In the past two years, the Micro Channel PS/2s have brought down on IBM unprecedented disdain fr?m such unaccustomed IBM bashing quarters as The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. . The PS/2's Micro Channel architecture has been hooted at as ·o_d_oo technology', and the incompatibiliries with earlier PCs have angered customes who feel that their huge investments in PC/AT bus machines and cards have been forgotten by IBM. Similarly. OS/2 _ still big, clumsy, expensive and without significant value for the overwhelming majority of users - has earned even more disdain and sells today as a novelty, not as a tool.

Ergonomically speaking

Richard Jinman delves into computer ergonomics and asks, are you sitting comfortably?

If yoU Were asked to compile a list of the PC · · most stressful occupations, usmg a would probably not make th top .1. Many people would be surpned if it made the list at all. That percept1.on runs contrary to the growing interest i.n con:iputer ergonomics (the. relatonsh1p between humans and their working environment). As more and more people confront a PC at work, the pressure on suppliers to provide comfortable and hassle-free computing is mounting. Standards authorities are aleady on the case. In the US, the Amencan National Standards Institution has released a 90-page set of recommendations for the , human factors engineering' of computer workstations. The International Standards Organisation, and our Standards Australia are both following suit. Mike Sanderson, the committee executive officer responsible for human factors at Standards Australia, said that a draft copy of its guidelines had alread.Y been sent to interested parties. Their comments will be used to compile a finished document for publication later this year. . The Australian guidelines, entitled 'Screen-Based Workstations', will be divided into three sections: VDUs, workstation furniture and input devices. "It won't be a mandatory" standard," said Mr Sanderson. "What it will provide is a reference for purchasers of computer equipment in particular." · So what are the perils of using a PC? Te first, and the least obvious problem, is that of immobility. Sitting at the PC has to be one of the least animated occupations humanity has yet invented. Even

The perils

 

<<PAGE BREAK>>HARDWARE

traditional office work involved a greater degree of movement. The PC has done away with all that. The result? Long-term PC users are beginning to report a variety of ailments, such as headaches, blurred vision and dizziness. These can be combined with keyboard-induced injuries to the fingers and wrists - the syndrome known as RSI (repetitive stress injury). In its extreme form, RSI can be very serious. Some users have experienced carpal tunnel syndrome - a finger' paralysing injury caused when the nerves running from the fingers to the arm are pinched at the wrist. Less serious, but extremely unpleasant, are the finger injuries received by word processor operators pushing over lOOwpm (words per minute) on PC keyboards. The short answer to RSI is to give yourself plenty of breaks from the machine. You don't have to do Tai-Chi, but it's a good idea to stretch your muscles and flex your wrists. Watch out for sharp edges on the keyboard as well, and make sure you use the board's legs to create a comfortable typing gradient. Office furniture can also make a difference. One estimate says that the average office worker spends 75,000 hours behind a desk, so it's important to feel comfortable. Let's start with your chair. The factors here are adjustability, support for the lower back, and arm-rests which don't obstruct. Probably the best kind are the ergonomic chairs which can be adjusted pneumatically. Good models will have 10 to 15 settings to play with. Make sure you are at a height that allows you to extend your arms over the keyboard without discomfort. Mark Bullock, of Sydney-based Sylex Ergonomics, suggests that a chair should also feature a 'waterfall' drop front. The design ensures that circulation is not restricted in the legs. Sylex 'stop-of-therange ergonomic chairs, which enforce a good posture, whichever position you adopt, cost around $650. The positioning of the screen can also be critical. Basic adjustments can be made using the monitor's tilt and swivel base, and experts recommend that you place the monitor 20 degrees below the line of sight. If you want to go one step further, monitor arms provide the ultimate adjustability: freeing up desk space, and allowing you to place the display exactly where you want it. on-screen contrast. However, for most people that just isn't practical, so make sure that you maximise the contrast using the monitor's control panel. Remember - contrast, not brightness is the issue here. Perhaps the greatest problems for your eyes are glare and reflection. The simple answer is not to sit with the screen facing a window. If you don't have blinds, you' 11 soon find the display reduced to a squint-inducing mass of reflections. There are several methods which screen vendors use to combat glare. The most common involves etching the surface of the picture tube, which is achieved chemically, or by sand-blasting. Etched screens scatter reflected light at all angles - instead of straight back into your eyes - but they also affect the light coming from the CRT (cathode ray tube). The result is a slight blurring of the screen image. through once, so a smaller amount is absorbed by the filters. Polarising filters can do a good job, but in some cases, the reflection will simply be transferred to the surface of the filter. Glare· is probably the most severe screen irritation, but there are others. Sharpness - which is related to resolution - screen flicker, ghosting and jitter (the constant shaking of the image) are all phenomena to avoid when choosing a monitor. If your eyesight is less than perfect, watch out. Contact-lens wearers tend to forget to blink when using PCs - which dries the eye and leads to considerable irritation. Bifocal lens wearers are also at risk. Your near-focus lens will provide correct focus at a distance of around 12 inches, but the computers screen will typically be set l 8in to 24in from your gaze. If you work for a large organisation like IBM, your employer will pay for a pair of computer glasses. They allow you to focus at the right distance, and avoid all that discomfort. Many smaller companies will at least subsidise an ordinary pair of glasses if you can convince them that working in front of a PC. is putting your eyes under strain. Even if your eyes are 20/20, a solid day at the monitor will still take its toll. If possible, position the screen so that you can look across the office, or out of the window, when you raise your eyes. If you 're staring at a blank wall when you look up from, say a spreadsheet application, your eyes won't be able to refocus and relax. Less clear cut are the affects of VDU radiation on health. Well publicised US cases (such as that of two female VDU operators who developed cancer of the cervix in 1980), have led to a good deal of research in the US, Europe and Australia. The consensus opinion seems to be that the evidence is still insufficient to cause alarm. Standards Australia's guidelines will not be considering the radiation emission of VDUs, and Mr Sanderson feels that, "the general consensus is that the amount of radiation emitted is very low." Computer ergonomics is a subject that is here to stay - particularly as more and more senior managers encounter PCs. Irritations such as tired eyes may sometimes seem trivial, but don't allow them to persist. You're going to be spending a lot of time at the PC, so create the most healthy environment you can.

'Even if your eves are 20/20, a solid day at the monitor will take its toll.'

Better glare resistance is provided by screen coatings from Optical Coating Labs Incorporated (OCLI). The drawback here though, is that they are expensive and will show up your fingerprints with a clarity that even Scotland Yard would admire. If your screen vendor hasn't provided sufficient anti-glare treatment, you can add extra protection yourself. Screen filters are available in three forms-plastic or nylon mesh, OCLI coated filters, and polarising filters. Obviously, the mesh solution is the least expensive of the group (prices range from around $50 to $70), but it suffers from a tendency to collect dust, and consequently reduces the clarity of the screen's image. OCLI is effective but expensive. Prices start at $99 and go up to around $179. Polarising filters work in pairs to reduce the glare from external light sources. External light passes through the filters twice, once on its way in, the second time as it is reflected back. The ambient light becomes circularly polarised on its way in, and much of it is blocked as it makes its exit. The light from the screen, however, only passes

Just why are the Laser range of PC's better than anything else on the market ... ?

this because they excel in the 4 most important areas directly relevant to all of us. Performance, Reliability, Compatibility, and Value! PERFORMANCE! From the Laser XT /3 to the Laser 386 series computers, the performance of all Laser computers and configurations is at the forefront of technology. RELIABILITY! Unsurpassed reliability by one of the world's largest PC manufacturer, together with first class back up. COMPATIBILITY! Compatible with the world's most popular standards. VALUE! For many, exceptional performance, reliability, and compatibility would suffice. However, Laser computers also offer exceptional value. In fact, Laser computers are amongst the most competitive priced computers on the market! Perhaps a little surprising for such outstanding computers, but this complete approach to computing is how Laser computers became one of the world's largest computer manufacturers. Why not discuss your requirements with the friendly and knowledgeable people at OREAD today.

f you need a PC that features state-ofthe-art performance, and unbeatable reliability, you need a Mitac PC. At Mitac, we take reliability seriously. That's why we inflict every PC we produce to 20 individual 'torture tests'. As a result Mitac Motherboards are so perfectly assembled, and so reliable, eve single one is given a spray of purified water, dried and then retested to ensure they work even after a drenching! But reliability isn't our only forte. Performance is equally impressive. Mitac PC's are amongst the fastest, most powerful on the market bar none. You can choose a Mitac with industry standard AT specifications or move into power-user specification levels with the latest 'micro-channel architecture' or 25MHz processors for multi-tasking.

 

I

 

Mitac's compact 'small footprint' exterior comes with 3.5" and 5.25" floppies as standard, and supports OS/2, MS DOS, XENIX, UNIX, and other major operating or networking systems. High resolution enhanced VGA+ (800 x 600) colour graphics is standard on most models, making Mitac PC's perfect for CAD and DTP applications. And best of all, Mitac's superior performance and reliability comes for significantly less than the equivalent IBM, Compaq or NEC's. Up to 40% less! But don't take our word for it. You be the judge! Call (008) 331 715 today and ask how you can have a Mitac Corporate Engine on your desk to try free for up to a whole month! Go on. Call (008) 331 715 now!

Glossary

Bus: The bus transfers data between the CPU and other computer components. A 16-bit bus can carry twice as much data as an 8-bit bus. Each different Configuration: peripheral requires its own set of signals to run correctly. The system must be configured to provide these. Setting up a system may require setting switches or storing information in ROM. Some devices can be set up by running configuration software each time the machine is booted. Coprocessor: The CPU is a general purpose information manipulator. Since many applications require large numbers of calculations to be performed, a mathematics or numeric coprocessor designed specifically for the purpose may be inserted to assist. CPU: See Processor. CPU speed: See Speed. Diskettes: Standard disk formats for IBM and compatibles are 135mm at 360k and l .2Mbyte, or 90mm at 720k and l .44Mbyte. The Macintosh formats diskettes at 800k. Most modern applications require a hard disk simply because diskette formats do not provide enough room to store the data and application. Expanded memory: Extra memory is known as expanded if it can be used by MS-DOS software, which is traditionally limited to 640k. Expansion slots: Many PCs have no expansion slots at all, while some have a proprietary slot for a modem or other card. Some manufacturers provide an expansion chassis to allow add-in cards to be used with the PC. Hz: The unit Hertz translates as the number of actions each second. In a computer it refers to the number of instructions that are performed each second. The standard Keys/keyboard: QWERTY keyboard has about 48 alphanumeric and lO controlling keys. The function keys add a further 10, while a numeric keypad brings this to 80 or 90. The separation of the numeric keypad and cursor control keys gives the now standard l 00-odd keys found on most computers. On many laptops, the number of keys is reduced by doubling the use of some alpha keys for use as a numeric keypad. Memory: The memory of a computer is a temporary store of information. If the computer is turned off the contents of memory are lost. Permanent storage

 

of memory is provided by disks and diskettes. See also RAM. Monitor size: The monitor size is measured diagonally across the screen in millimetres. Monitor type: The major requirement of a monitor is that it is easy to see. For desktop computers the type of screen surface is almost as important as the degree of resolution displayed. In portables, power consumption is a major consideration. LCD screens are the most power efficient displays but are often difficult to see - backlighting can help this. Gas plasma is also popular but more power-hungry. Motherboard: Surrounding the CPU is the system's working memory or RAM, chips holding the BIOS and the electronics to drive the keyboard and screen. All of this is usually on one printed circuit board known as the motherboard. Other devices are plugged into the computer through a bus (data path) that is provided specifically for that purpose. MTBF: The mean time between failures is a calculated figure indicating the reliability of the machine. It is given as the number of hours that a machine can be expected to be powered on before a failure occurs. Processor: The CPU (central processing unit) largely determines the operating systems and peripherals that can be attached. It also influences the software that can be run on the PC. Accordingly, we have divided this chapter largely by the processors that run each computer. RAM: While the term RAM actually stands for random access memory, it is now synonymous with memory in general. Memory is the working storage of the computer. ROM: A portion of read only memory is devoted to storing the basic input output system. This BIOS may contain a setup program and configuration information for the whole machine. Setup: See configuration. Speed: The speed of the CPU controls the overall performance of the computer. As most information goes through the CPU its speed sets the pace for the rest of the machine. Most other peripherals are slower than the CPU and consequently slow it down. Standard RAM: This is the amount of RAM that comes standard. See RAM. Weight: The weight of a laptop is a critical consideration for many users. (5kg is the maximum cabin baggage allowed on Qantas flights).

<<PAGE BREAK>>Printers, output devices

If your printer is one of the most valuable components of your computer system · it (and probably is), you need to ensure its optimum use. The BIT PEP family of Printer Enhancement Products gives you more flexible, expandable and cost-effective printing power than you could possibly have dreamed.

 

e All the devices can be aisy-chain conected,_ req ... iring less cabling and resulting in a neater installation. e Because PEPs use twisted pair cabling, thy offer e e e e e

 

printing requirements. No PEPs ever become redundant.

 

Video and film are becoming increasingly common mediums for communication. The computer-buying public is now much more visually aware.

In I 987, the first issue of the Buyers' Guide to Hardware listed a significant number of daisywheel printers in this section. We noted at the time that they were facing stiff competition from the laser printer, which was then beginning to make widespread use of the PostScript page description language. This year, the daisywheels have been excluded from the Buyers' Guide to Hardware. A number of the big manufacturers still produce them, however, most saw fit not to submit entries for listing this year. The laser printer reigns supreme and not surprisingly. A $5000 desktop machme is capable of producing output that was the realm of the professional typesetter a few years ago. Bureaux can produce letterheads or lay out newsletters for a fraction of last decade's prices and desktop publishing is a reality. Not that this has diminished the usefuless of dot matrix printers. The resolutions that these devices are capable of have continually increased, and for as littie as $500 you can buy a machine that will print draft text at around a line per second and produce passable documents from desktop publishing packages. In addition, 48-pin printers are also appearing, offering higher-quality text.

 

e Each member of the BIT-PEP family_ is a single f_uncion e

 

device that you can mix and match in any combination to create the printer network perfect for your requirements. You can add (or subtract) PEP devices accordlnq to your needs, adapting them immediately to changes m your

 

considerable savings over the parallel cabling costs of other systems. PEPs can service up to 30 computers over 300 metres apart, and over one, two or more floors. Our remote device system facilitates remote warehouse printing capability. PEPs are fast and easy to install; most of the equipment can be user-installed. PEPs are Australian-designed, with full maintenance and support facilities. Peps are covered by a 12 month warranty.

 

The Pep Family

PEPswitch switches between printers from your keyboard with software commands. PEPbuffer has a capacity of 256Kb to speed operations by buffering your printer data intelligently, so you get more use out of your PC. PEPmegabuffer buffers from 256Kb to 2Mb of printer data . automatically PEPsharer automatically shares one or more printers between up to four users. PEPchex, the parallel channel extender which can drive your printer from up to 300 metres away from your PC. PEPnet, the single cable printer sharer system that allows you to share one or more printers between up to 30 PCs over 300 metres. PEPcon SP and PfPeon PS are the PEP converters between serial and parallel printers.
