PaceBlade Redefines the Mobile PC

Hannover, Germany - PaceBlade Technology, will today redefine the world's perception of a truly mobile PC. The innovative PaceBook is the only Notebook PC in the world that also can be used as a Tablet or Panel PC. The revolutionary concepts and designs incorporated into the PaceBook make it the next generation mobile computing device, and puts it light years ahead of the competition.

Current notebook PC designs have not changed significantly over the past decade. However, the standard notebook layout is not optimal in terms of reliability or usability. Mechanical hinges on notebook displays eventually fail. Spills on the keyboard will usually damage a notebook beyond repair, and more than a few LCD displays have been broken because the notebook was shut while a pen or pencil was on the keyboard. Furthermore, small, unergonomic keyboards can contribute to repetitive stress injury (RSI), while the small distance between the user and the display may also lead to poor posture and lower back pain.

Through the use of human engineering, PaceBlade's innovative PaceBook addresses all of these shortcomings. By carefully studying the way people use notebook PCs, PaceBlade designed-in a multitude of features and refinements to enhance ease of use and improve overall reliability. The PaceBook features an ergonomically designed keyboard with user definable hot-keys and pre-defined function keys for most commonly used applications and controls. Since the keyboard is wireless, the PaceBook unit and display can be placed further away for better posture and greater comfort. The hingeless design and separate keyboard also address mechanical and electrical reliability issues, leading to a lower total cost of ownership.

The PaceBook uses Transmeta's TM5600 series Crusoe microprocessor in conjunction with Silicon Motion's Lynx family of graphics chipsets. This dynamic combination allows the lowest power consumption possible extending battery life to 6 hours or more of regular use on a single charge. Truly mobile PCs can not spend their time tethered to a power outlet, so 6+ hours battery life makes the PaceBook capable of a full day's work in or out of the office. Furthermore, the SMI graphics controller features hardware rotation, thus allowing the PaceBook to be used in landscape mode for web browsing and email or in portrait mode for document editing or desktop publishing.

The PaceBook comes standard with a uniquely designed carry bag that is an integral part of the product. The PaceBook can be configured as a notebook PC by placing the PaceBook unit and wireless keyboard in the opened carry bag. In this configuration, the PaceBook is ready to move at a moments' notice - just close and zip up the carry bag and you are ready to hit the road!

The PaceBook comes with a Transmeta Crusoe 600MHz processor, 4MB SMI Lynx graphics controller, 128MB SDRAM, 20GB HDD, 12.1" XGA TFT-LCD display with Windows ME or Windows 2000 OS. Optional accessories include CD-RW/DVD-ROM, wireless infrared remote control and CCD camera.
