NEC - Versa UltraLite

Product Specifications

Notebook computers weren't always true portables. Sure, you could take a notebook outside, but try deciphering anything on the display. Leave it to NEC to offer a solution! The NEC UltraLite notebooks are powered by a powerful Transmeta Crusoe processor, which unlike other mobile CPUs, has software-based architecture. Code Morphing Software, patented by Transmeta, incorporates LongRun Power Management, a feature that allows the processor to run at peak performance whether your UltraLite notebook is running on battery power or plugged into an outlet. LongRun Power Management also continuously monitors your application use and adjusts the processor's speed and voltage accordingly. Your bottom-line benefit is peak performance without sacrificing battery life. And for even more portability, NEC has added two separately aimed batteries for longer time of use. Indoor workers, of course, can also benefit from a long-life ultra portable, and they haven't been forgotten. Sales reps, for example, healthcare workers and service technicians will appreciate the superb color and XGA resolution of the Versa UltraLite backlit LCD. In addition, the notebook's compact size allows the display to be opened to a comfortable viewing angle, even if you're flying in economy class and the seat in front of you is reclined.
