FCC Alert?

Your September review of the Head-Start III computer in the "Buying Your First Computer" feature neglected to say that the FCC has not rated it acceptable for use in the home. The last thing a "beginner" needs is a toy that interferes with family TV or radio!


We contacted HeadStart Technologies and a spokesperson assured us that the HeadStart III does indeed have an FCC Class B rating, which makes it suitable for home use. There has been some confusion because a PC magazine that reviewed the HeadStart III stated that the computer had only a Class A rating, based on its preliminary review unit.
