for Qualified Educational Institutions/Hospitals.  Revisions to these
exhibits involve the addition of the IBM PC XT (TM) 5162 Model 286 in
Category A effective immediately.
       For customers with either a 32WS or 515E Exhibit in effect,
the attached VPA Exhibits (32WS-9 or 515E-34) automatically supersede
your present VPA Exhibit.  Customers with a VPA Exhibit (5150-18 or
later) may order a 5162 in Category A.  You should refer to this
revised Exhibit when placing orders for the Category A machines under
your VPA.
       Customers with an existing IBM Personal Computer VPA in effect
with a commitment in Category A may order the IBM PC XT (5162) Model
286 either as additional quantities to, or as direct substitutes for,
the other machines listed in Category A, subject to availability.
       If sufficient additional quantities are ordered to qualify for
a greater discount, a Supplement for Additional Quantities must be
signed, and all machines shipped on and after the date the signed
supplement is received by IBM, and prior to expiration of the
contract period, will receive the greater discount.
