The situation here is:- when we went to order a Power
Mac Pc 7/100 ABI told us to wait while they checked out
if this was compatible with the sequencing software which
we had ordered. They told us everything would be O.K.
as long as an A/V card was not fitted ! As I was not
directly involved with the ordering I don't know (a) Wether
this is the new model of the 7/100 (b) The exact
details of the software package. I was only told that
I was expected to manage the sequencing facility after all
this had been decided. Typical I.C.
