HP OmniBook 4150


The OmniBook has just about everything for the style-conscious frequent flyer who needs a flexible portable and is not afraid of a bleeding-edge price.

Product Specifications

You refuse to settle for anything less than desktop-caliber performance and expandability from a notebook PC. Yet neither are you willing to let a full-featured eight-pounder weigh you down when you travel. So where can you find a notebook PC that will meet all your job requirements-both in the office and on the road? Turn to Hewlett-Packard. Because we've developed the first notebook PCs with the advanced processor and display performance of a desktop PC in a thin, lightweight, and easily expandable package you can take with you: the HP OmniBook 4150 notebook PC. HP OmniBook 4150 notebook PC incorporates a broad range of proven, high-performance mobile PC technologies-all reduced in size, weight, or power consumption to fit in a package that weighs less than six pounds and measures 1.4 inches thin. The HP OmniBook 4150 notebook PC comes with the latest, ultimate-performance Intel Mobile Pentium II processors. For presentations that mean business, it features a 256-bit NeoMagic Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) graphics processor with 2.5 Mbytes of SDRAM video memory, along with the equivalent of a 15.3-inch desktop monitor-a huge, 14.1-inch XGA TFT display. HP recognises that to meet your needs and protect your company's investment your notebook PC must deliver desktop-equivalent expandability. That's why the HP OmniBook 4150 notebook PC comes with plenty of RAM and hard drive space. When you're back in the office, you'll appreciate the HP OmniBook 4150 notebook PCs' optional docking solutions. For ease of deployment and learning, these unique, cross-product-line solutions-ranging from a simple port replicator that provides basic cable management to a full docking system with monitor stand that offers the ultimate in network connectivity, security, and expandability-work interchangeably across the entire HP OmniBook line. That means you can plug in to your corporate network using the same docking solutions as your colleagues, whether your notebook PC is an HP OmniBook 2100, 3100, 4100, or 7100 Series, and wherever across your company you travel. Like all the latest HP OmniBooks, your HP OmniBook 4150 notebook PC comes with a host of features designed to make your computing trouble-free. Multiple security features help prevent theft and tampering. Every model comes preloaded with either Windows 95/98 or Windows NT 4.0 operating system, Desktop Management Interface (DMI) 2.0, and HP TopTools, the industry-leading management application that makes PC management easier than ever. And one Type III or two Type II PC Card slots-combined with HP's long list of Approved PC Card Solutions-assure you of a broad choice of connectivity and peripheral solutions. So don't settle for less performance than you need for your professional-quality presentations and demanding office applications. Now you can get desktop-caliber performance, expandability, and versatility in a convenient, lightweight PC that's exceptionally easy to take on your travels: the HP OmniBook 4150 notebook PC.
