Bulgarian PC Brand Pravetz to Start Selling Laptops in JanuaryLegendary Bulgarian PC brand Pravetz is to make the first sales of its Pravetz 64M laptop after having been out of business for more than two decades.

There is a substantial interest in the new devices which could be purchased starting January 15, Boyko Vuchev, who runs Pravetz Computers OOD and also owns the Pravetz brand, is quoted by BGNES news service as saying.

In his words, a few dozen citizens have already submitted inquiries to buy the product.

Pravetz 64M is less than 2 cm thick and can work seven hours on a single charge. It has Intel i3, i5 or i7 processors, up to 16GB RAM and up to 1 TB hard disc memory.

The device is entirely assembled in Bulgaria, with various local companies involved in the process. Most of its parts, however, are produced in Taiwan.

As part of the Pravetz 64M project, sales revenues will be invested into the creation of a “Pravetz Laboratory” which could help research, innovation and development of computer parts on Bulgarian soil.

At a stand in Sofia Ring Mall, those interested in the new laptops are already able to have a look at the new model. Vuchev’s private collection of Pravetz PCs released in the 1980s is also on display.

The Pravetz computers were launched in 1979 in a bid by the Bulgarian government to develop high-tech industries.

In the 80s, the Pravetz venture achieved some successes, with a computer producing unit built in the town of Pravetz (Pravets), the birthplace of longtime Bulgarian communist ruler Todor Zhivkov.

After the transition to democracy in the early 1990s, production ceased and the company went defunct.
