A recent issue of Byte magazine featured the PowerPC.  At that time it was 
scheduled to be released in early '94.   If the machine and the software 
emulators for running DOS and Mac operating systems live up to IBM, Apple, 
and Motorola's promises, this would definitely be the best choice for speed 
and ease of use.
