Hitachi launches Win98, B5 sub-notebook

Hitachi Australia has released a new sub-notebook that fits into a brand new class of products in portable computing, the company says.

The Hitachi 220 Ultra-Lite Notebook is the size of a B5 sheet of paper, weighs 1.3kg and is less than 3cm thick.

Hitachi emphasises it is not a Win CE system, but runs on Windows 98 and features an Intel 266MHz MMX processor.

The Hitachi 220 Ultra-Lite also incorporates a 10.4in LCD display, a 2MB video card, 32MB SDRAM and a 3.2GB or 4.3GB hard drive. External CD-ROM and floppy drives are available as optional extras.

For connectivity, the notebook includes a USB port, infra-red port and a port bar connector that includes two PS/2 ports, a parallel connection, a serial connector and an external monitor plug.

The notebook runs on a Li-Ion batter with two hours operating life.

The Hitachi 220 Ultar-Lite is priced from $4350.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
