Brother has increased its PC range with an upgrade based around the Pentium II 400MMX chip.
Succeeding the Tutor and Graduate, the Professor 991 has 64Mb Ram, 512K internal cache and a 32-speed CD-ROM drive. Brother is aiming the product at small business and multimedia environments.
It comes in desktop, mini-tower and full tower varieties, and features an 8Mb graphics card which allows for video captioning, TV instant replay and 3D Web browsing.
The card also supports full-screen MPEG images, and a TV Magazine feature lets closed caption transcripts be incorporated within video stills and full motion images for multimedia presentations.
The 17in monitor is capable of a 1024x764 resolution. A Yamaha sound chip and surround sound speakers are also supplied.
The machine comes pre-installed with Windows 95 and Microsoft Office 97 Small Business Edition bundled.
A one-year on-site warranty and lifetime telephone support comes with each PC.
For an extra #50 per callout, the company also offers a SureStart service for door-to-door installation and a thirty minute user training session.
The Professor 991 is available now for #1,799 or #1,836 for the full tower option.
