No Relief For Pent Up Pentium Demand

NO RELIEF FOR PENT-UP PENTIUM DEMAND

Meanwhile, back at Intel, there is bad news for computer buyers planning on picking up the latest in desktops. Despite a two-month delay in unveiling Pentium-based machines to give Intel time to build up supplies of its new chip, computer makers say there is still a shortage of the Pentium. The machines, priced around $5,000, are supposed to go on sale this week--but some PC makers won't get their first chips until late in the year. Intel Vice-President Paul Otellini says the company will make 10,000 of the chips this quarter, within the range of projections it made to customers early this year. But he admits the number is "not at the high end of the range." Says a marketing manager at one Pentium-hungry PC maker: "We'd love to have all 10,000."EDITED BY JULIE TILSNER
