It’s perfect for anyone looking to benefit from the portable yet powerful benefits that have become the Sharp Actius trademark.”

The Actius AV18P

The new Actius AV18P is an ultramobile notebook that features integrated 802.11b wireless LAN support, and includes an integrated combo DVD/CD-RW drive. With an extremely compact 11.1” x 9.4” footprint, the AV18P features the low-voltage mobile AMD Athlon XP-M processor 1800+, CD burning and DVD playback capabilities, Windows XP Professional Edition, 256 MB memory and a 40 GB hard drive in an ultrathin, lightweight design. Measuring just one inch thick and starting at 3.9 pounds, the Actius AV18 is one of the thinnest and lightest and budget-conscious notebooks in its class.

The Actius AV18P also includes ‘sharp-fx,’ Sharp’s proprietary DVD optimization software. This included module for InterVideo’s WinDVD player automatically adjusts image contrast for optimum clarity. Combined with the Actius AV18P’s high-quality 12.1” LCD screen, this image enhancing software brings out the best in DVD picture quality.

“With the new Actius products, we’re continuing our quest to provide maximum productivity on the go,” said Hanly. “The Actius AV18P continues that tradition with a very thin, yet powerful machine at a great price.”
