Pricing on the MacIvory seems to be very speculative since it won't
be shipped until December. On the other hand, we have, here, now,
a TI MicroExplorer. With 3x80mb hard disks, color monitor, 12mb
on the TI board, 5mb on the MAC II, ethernet board, and the full
development software, the list price was about 36k (with
a gsa discount, it comes out to about 28k). We have been
told this is roughly the price of a MacIvory similarly configured,
although no firm prices have been set.
For those who are a little tentative about this technology, TI has
started a 3 month leasing program at about $600/month for the above
configured MicroExplorer. Normal leasing prices are about 3 times
that. After the 3 month period, you can turn it in, buy it (half the
lease goes towards the purchase), or lease at the higher rate. I
would hope Symbolics offers the same deal.
