Toshiba Introduces Crusoe-Based "Libretto" Ultra-Light Notebook in Japan

Santa Clara, CA; May 7, 2001...Transmeta Corporation (NASDAQ: TMTA) and Toshiba Corporation today announced the introduction in Japan of Toshiba's Crusoe-based Libretto L1/060TNMM notebook PC with up to 14 hours of battery life.

Toshiba announced that the notebook, weighing just 2.4 lbs, will be available in Japan as of May 18. The Libretto L1/060TNMM, with a 600MHz Crusoe processor, features a small, lightweight design with a low power, 10" wide SXGA TFT screen and a 10 gigabyte hard drive.

"It is a major milestone that Toshiba, the world's leading shipper of notebooks, has chosen Crusoe for this innovative new system," said Jim Chapman, executive vice president of sales and marketing, Transmeta Corporation.

The new notebook measures 10.5" (wide) x 6.6" (deep) x .81" (thick). The 10" wide SXGA (1,280 X 600 dot) low power, poly-silicon TFT screen gives the new notebook the largest screen in the mini-notebook category and offers detail and clarity, allowing easy viewing and effective displaying of online images and maps. The .70 key pitch offers users comfort in typing for extended periods of time.

Crusoe's LongRun power management capability continuously adjusts the processor's frequency and voltage (MHz) to provide the necessary performance for a given application while maximizing battery life. Additionally, Toshiba's power-saving utility provides for maximum power efficiency throughout the system, enabling up to 4.5 hours of battery life with a standard battery and up to 14 hours with an optional battery.

The notebook, which runs Microsoft® Windows® Me, is equipped with two USB connectors, PC card slot (type II), i.Link™ connector and a mini-RGB often used for business presentations. The Libretto L1/060TNMM makes Internet and e-mail communications possible during extensive travel with an embedded modem compatible in 58 regions of the world. It also has Bluetooth capability for wireless connection to Internet.
