	I haven't seen this addressed yet so here goes...
	Does anyone in net land want to second guess apple
	and prophesize when apple might get smart enough
	to start selling the IIE and IIC with a 16 bit
	CPU ??????

	It seems to me that if they don't, the II family will
	not be able to compete with upstarts like Atari's new
	and much hyped 68000 line....

        Any comments????

The problem for Apple is its own products competing against each other.
From a consumer marketing point of view there is no point upgrading the Apple
][ to compete effectively with the Macintosh which is a far more profitable
product.

Welcome to the world of consumer marketing...
