A sales clerk is shown passing an eletronic wand over the magnetic stripe on a merchandise rice tag to ring up a purchase. The new IBM 3650 retail store system features point-of-sale terminals that combine the functions of an advanced cash register with those of a computer entry device. The system speeds up customer transactions and also provides sales data to buyers faster so they can maintain adequate stocks of desired merchandise."
