@Xi Computer Corp.
Xi MTower SP

In our article, "7 Hot-Rod Cad Systems" (CADENCE, September 1997, pp. 30-40), we included some of the best names in the business, such as Digital, IBM, and Intergraph; we were surprised to see Xi emerge victorious. Maybe we shouldn't have been. We put ourselves in the shoes of CAD managers (those with limited budgets) who needed to satisfy their high-end CAD users and set about trying to find the best value. We weren't just after raw performance, although that was certainly important. Or just the most features. Nor were we just interested in low cost. We combined all three major aspects of computer buying - performance, cost, and features and then let the numbers crown the winner. This years recommended workstation, with the best combination of performance, features and speed is the Xi 266 PII Mtower SP. You get a Pentium II, 266 MHz system, with 64 MB of RAM, 4.5GB hard drive, 17-inch monitor and 24x CD ROM for $5,599.

Other companies and products which won annual editors choice awards this year are: Intel Corp.'s Pentium II processor, Microsoft Corp.'s Windows NT 4.0, Hewlett-Packard Co. HP DesignJet 750C Plus, and Autodesk Inc. AutoCAD release 14.

Xi Computer Corp. was the ONLY computer workstation to receive the prestigious editors choice award.
