    PC MAKERS WANT TO TRIM COSTS BY TRIMMING BUNDLES
    With profit margins on PCs at a perilously low point, computer makers are
    looking for ways to cut costs without sacrificing quality. Compaq, Packard
    Bell, Acer America and NEC all have announced they plan to cut back on their
    software bundles this fall, noting that much of the software isn't used
    anyway. "The bundling craze was a reaction to the need to target those
    first-time buyers," says an Apple Computer manager. "Now we're seeing the
    market mature a little bit." Customer surveys have show that most people
    typically use fewer than 10 of the up-to-60 programs pre-installed on their
    new computers, discarding the rest. (St. Petersburg Times 19 Jun 96 E6)
