General information
Machine type: 9590
Announce date: March, 1993

Excerpt from the original announcement letter;

"IBM brings enhanced ergonomic features and added function to its popular Personal System/2 (R) (PS/2(R)) Model 90 XP 486 family of products (0LA and 0LF) with new ISO capable models featuring Intel 486DX2-50 microprocessor. The new models are based on existing 8590 technology and feature greatly enhanced graphics support. The new 9590 models support all features and options currently available on the corresponding 8590 models. As with all PS/2 Model 90 XP 486 systems, these feature Micro Channel architecture and an upgradeable processor complex card and are designed to take advantage of today's technology, as well as future processor enhancements. All models feature pre-installed OS/2 2.00.1 supporting 16 and 32-bit applications, an IBM mouse, a 2.88MB diskette drive, 8MB of system memory, and the XGA(tm)-2 Display Adapter/A. One model features a new, high capacity 212MB (million bytes) fixed disk drive. The other model features a new, capacity 400MB (million bytes) fixed drive."
