NEC Computers Inc. Unveils Sleek New Ultraportable Notebook Computer For Executive Computing Needs

NEC Computers Inc., a leading provider of mobile, desktop and server computing solutions for the enterprise market, today introduced the NEC Versa® TXi, the lightest ultraportable notebook computer engineered with the versatility of a modular bay.

The Versa TXi, featuring a stylish industrial shape and silver magnesium casing, has a profile of 1.26-inches and weighs less than four pounds. The system operates on an Intel® Mobile Pentium® III 750MHz processor featuring Intel SpeedStepTM technology for advanced power-saving capabilities, and offers the full functionality and performance mobile professionals require.

“With the introduction of the Versa TXi, NEC Computers has ushered in a new class of ultraportable notebook systems,” said Dr. J. Gerry Purdy, CEO and president of Mobile Insights. “This is the first full-function ultraportable notebook to combine a super-light, sub-four pound design with a two-spindle configuration and versatile modular bay. We believe that this unique combination puts the Versa TXi in the new class of ultraportables that include a bay.”

Engineered with NEC Computers’ new VersaBayTM IV technology, the Versa TXi is available with a DVD-ROM/CD-RW combo drive or a CD-ROM drive. The DVD-ROM/CD-RW combo drive is ideal for users seeking the data storage and backup capabilities of a CD-RW drive and the entertainment and presentation features of a DVD player. An external USB 1.44MB1 floppy disk drive ships standard with the Versa TXi. In addition, a weight-saving module, also standard with the notebook, can cover the VersaBay IV slot when no device is installed, reducing travel weight by almost half a pound.

To satisfy a variety of mobility needs, two rechargeable lithium-ion battery options are available for the Versa TXi notebook computer. For extended mobile computing power, the standard battery can be replaced with an optional maximum-life 15-cell lithium-ion battery. Additionally, a modular 6-cell battery can simultaneously be inserted into the VersaBay IV drive.

“A growing number of mobile professionals in small-to-medium size businesses are looking for mobile systems that extend beyond the typical definition of a business PC,” said Larry Miller, vice president of marketing for NEC Computers. “The Versa TXi is a beautifully engineered and executed system for those users who want a stylish computer that offers ultra-portability, without sacrificing the functionality and versatility of a notebook with a modular bay.”

The Versa TXi notebook computer has a crisp 12.1-inch TFT XGA display with VGA and TV-out ports for quick connection to external devices. Additional multimedia capabilities include 3 USB ports for plug-and-play peripherals, such as digital cameras, scanners and printers, and an IEEE 1394 port for high-speed data transfers of digital video content.

The Versa TXi ships standard with a 20GB1 hard drive, 128MB memory and an integrated 10/100 Ethernet and V.90 modem combo card for fast connection to a networked environment or dial-up service. The Versa TXi also ships with a choice of Microsoft® Windows® 98 Second Edition or Windows 2000 operating systems pre-installed.
