Adelaide-based systems integrator Austeknis has released the PD TFT Mini PC, a notebook about the size of a video tape.
Dubbed the Mini PC, the A5 notebook features a 266 Cyrix Processor, 6.1 inch TFT Active Colour Screen with Touch Screen and 1 PCMCIA Type 11 slot.
Users can compose notes on the screen using a stylus, although the Mini PC also has a keyboard with 77 keys.
Featuring onboard sound, 4Mbps Infrared Port and the normal collection of I/O ports such as 1 serial, 1 parallel, keyboard, mouse, audio in and out, and a USB port, the unit is available with either 32 or 64MB RAM with a 4.8HDD and optional desktop docking station with in-built FDD and CD-ROM or vehicle docking.
The unit weighs just 1kg with a standard battery pack. Bundled with a portable printer, the system is lending new meaning to the term "portable office", according to Austeknis.
The Mini PC will run on standard Windows operating systems. Typical operating time is two hours, or four hours using high-capacity equipment.www.austeknis.com
