Sharp Actius UM32W


Sharp's UM32W notebook is superthin and superlight, but it lacks stereo speakers and has only an external CD-ROM drive.

Sharp Sharp PC-UM32W


The UM32W offers great ultraportable computing at a reasonable price--if you don't mind settling for a flimsy-feeling external 6X CD-ROM drive and a less-than-perfect keyboard.

With its 1 GHz processor, 256 MB of RAM (user expandable up to 512 MB), 2 USB 2.0 ports, 40 GB hard drive and wireless LAN connectivity, the Actius UM32W sets new standards of performance for mobile notebook PCs.
