Texas Instruments Australia has rolled out two new Pentium processor-based colour multimedia notebooks: the Extensa 570CD and 570CDT. "The new machines were developed to meet market demand for Pentium-based notebook computers at an affordable price," said David Finn, TI director of marketing and sales. The RRP for the 570CD is $4,655; for the 570CDT it is $5,587.
According to TI, the Extensa 570CDT has a 100MHz Pentium processor, PCI bus architecture, 8Mb of RAM (expandable to 40Mb), 265K L2 cache, 1.2Gb HDD, 6 x CD-ROM standard, a 10.4in high-resolution screen, battery for up to 2.5 hours use per charge. The 570CD has a similar set-up, albeit with a smaller hard disk and a larger screen.
TI says "both models are fully modular, and with one step users can switch between a second hard drive, the floppy drive or CD-ROM. The Extensas offer the 'dual installation' option of Windows 95 or Windows for Workgroups".
