Product Specifications

If you need superb mobile processing muscle and great versatility in a notebook computer, but don't care to spend an arm and a leg, then the Compaq Armada 1750 is for you. The 1750 is part of Compaq's Value line of Armada notebooks, and value is definitely what you get: the latest Intel mobile processor technology, superior upgradeability, and full communications and multimedia features. This Armada uses one of the new line of mobile Pentium II processors. The difference between the new mobile Pentium II and the older version is that, whereas the mobile Pentium II used to have 512K of L2 cache memory running at one-half processor clock speed, it now has half the cache (256K) running at full clock speed. Faster cache is better than more cache, and using this design strategy the new mobile Pentium II promises to outperform any notebook processor on the market today. It continues to support MMX-enhanced multimedia software, and has unmatched all-around strength in business and gaming applications. Notebook's huge hard drive offers plenty of storage space for most uses, and for additional storage capacity, you can add a second hard drive to the Armada's Multi-Bay. Dinky graphics in your notebook are a thing of the past. The Armada 1750 features a nice big color screen, and an AGP graphics controller. Compaq PremierSound 16-bit audio produces SoundBlaster compatible output through the notebook's acoustic bass reflex stereo speakers with a 2 watt/channel amplifier and 4 stage EQ. An optional internal CD-ROM drive, integrated mic, and standard audio jacks round out the multimedia features of the Armada 1750. The Armada's Multi-Bay makes this a very versatile notebook. The Multi-Bay accommodates the standard floppy drive, as well as an optional second hard drive, battery, DVD-ROM drive, LS-120 drive, or Zip drive. Accessorize your Armada with any of these extra devices that you may need for the task at hand. While you're on the road, stay in touch with the optional integrated 56K V.90 fax/modem, allowing you to send and receive email and faxes, or go online for research or entertainment. Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 95/98 comes installed on this Armada, along with Insight Management Agents, Intelligent Manageability, Security 32, Diagnostics for Windows 95, Compaq Power Management, Online Safety and Comfort Guide, Reference Guide, and Carbon Copy.
