Acorn Launches Clan Acorn '94

First computer company to offer VISA Credit Card to Clan members

Acorn Computers Ltd, the world's first supplier of 32-bit RISC personal computers, as launched Clan Acorn '94, a club designed to bring the people who use Acorn computers together with those designing and making them. All members will receive a membership card with a unique number offering Clan members exclusive offers and information from Acorn.

The first offer will be the chance to take out an Acorn VISA credit card, believed to be unique in the computer industry. In addition, members will have the opportunity to obtain Acorn's C++ and new developer toolkit at a special price. Third parties are also working with Acorn to provide multiprocessor capabilities for Risc PC computers and connectivity kits to allow users to access the Internet.

Peter Bondar, Product Marketing Manager at Acorn Computers Ltd comments:

"Clan Acorn '94 is the ultimate club for Acorn enthusiasts. Our aim is to offer this group a forum to participate in the latest news and discussions within the Acorn community. We know many of our users communicate together already but we felt that by developing Clan Acorn '94 it would provide them with more - great deals, early information and input on future Acorn developments."

Members of the Clan will receive information about projects and technologies, opportunities to acquire appropriate early releases and beta-releases, discounts on current products and a chance for end users to give Acorn input on new developments. Over the course of 1995, newsletters will be sent to members containing details of developments from Acorn and Acorn's software and hardware community. For example, information from the enthusiasts' group looking at UNIX on the Risc PC, developments on multiprocessing and user interface designs will be discussed plus a regular set of programming and design competitions.

Lifetime membership for Clan Acorn '94 is £15, which includes a promotional pack of Acorn merchandise. An application form can be obtained from Acorn product marketing on +44 (0)1223 254254.
