Compaq Computer Corp. released two new slim and light notebook computers on Monday under its Evo line of mobile computers.

Compaq released the Evo notebook N200 and Evo N160, which are aimed at business users in companies of all sizes, the company said in a statement.

The Evo N200, which was previewed at the TECHXNY trade show in June, has a price tag of US$1,799, while the Evo N160 will ring in at $1,399, Compaq said. The notebooks are part of the Evo product line (short for "evolution") which was launched by Compaq last May, and includes notebooks, desktops, workstations and thin clients designed to have an industrial style. With a height of 0.8 inches (2.032 centimeters), the mini Evo N200 mini notebook is powered by the Intel Corp.'s Pentium III 700 MHz-M processor, giving it a battery life of up to 8 hours. The notebook also has 192M bytes of memory and a 20G-byte hard drive, Compaq said.

The Evo N200 supports the Compaq WL110 Wireless PC Card for use on a wireless LAN, the company said.

The Evo N160 can be configured with either an Intel Celeron 933 MHz or Pentium III 1 GHz processor, and comes with a mini-PCI V.92 modem, integrated 10/100 NIC, DVD-ROM optical drive and a hard drive of up to 20G bytes.

The notebook also has high-end multimedia capabilities such as ATI Technologies Inc.'s Mobility Radeon Graphics, S-Video out and IEEE 1394 digital video input, Compaq said.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
