Crusoe-Based Notebook Introduced By NEC

    SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 17, 2000--NEC today in Japan introduced a three-pound notebook computer that will operate up to 11 hours on battery power using Transmeta's Crusoe microprocessor.
    Since early September, Sony, Fujitsu and now NEC have introduced Crusoe-based notebooks. Transmeta's microprocessor is unique in its capability to extend battery life by using software to adjust voltage and frequency on-the-fly, consuming only the amount of power needed for maximum efficiency.
    "NEC is very impressed with the battery life and performance capabilities provided by Crusoe," said Osamu Iseki, senior manager, product planning department, mobile I solution division, NEC Corporation. "The LaVie MX will give consumers an exceptional mobile computing experience."
    The LaVie MX, new to NEC's LaVie series, will incorporate a 600MHz Crusoe microprocessor. The notebook runs Windows 2000 and measures 10.4" x 8.3" x less than 1" (thick). This lightweight design houses a 20 gigabyte hard drive, 128 megabytes of SDRAM and has a 10.4" reflective TFT display. NEC will begin taking orders immediately in Japan for the new LaVie MX.
    "NEC engineers have done a brilliant job of incorporating the latest advanced mobile technology from Japan," said Jim Chapman, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Transmeta Corporation. "They have integrated that technology with Crusoe to create a perfect mobile, professional notebook that delivers all day computing."
