PS/2 type:8550 - 02
	
Excerpt from the original announcement letter;	
	   
The Personal System/2 Model 50 (IBM 8550) introduces advanced design and
technology and a new MICRO CHANNEL(TM) ARCHITECTURE to provide significant
price/performance enhancements for desktop computing and workstations.
The 10MHz INTEL 80286 microprocessor offers application growth capabilities
and is designed to maintain software compatibility with most current IBM
personal computer programs.
A high level of feature integration on the system board reduces optional
adapter requirements.
When configured with the new analog displays, the IBM 8550's new integrated
Video Graphics Array (VGA) provides enhanced performance, increased display
functions, and increased color availability.
The system includes a 1.44MB, 3.5-inch diskette drive and a 20MB fixed
disk drive.
Besides the new mouse, memory, math co-processor, and diskette drive options,
new connectivity options (dual asynchronous, multi-protocol, and modem
adapters, and other options) allow the IBM 8550 to communicate with a
variety of hosts and networks.
