Broad-based ICT distributor, Pinnacle Micro, has announced the availability of its Proline AnyWare MW1 notebook. The notebook is aimed at the corporate and home user markets and is covered by a 1 year warranty.

Proline brand manager at the company, Francois Lottering, says the MW1 incorporates Windows XP Home and Professional to cover all basis. It also incorporates Intel Centrino Mobile Technology enabling true work on demand functionality for users on the move. With up to 2GB 400/533MHz DDR2 memory the unit also offers an additional two DDR memory sockets for users who seek scalability and flexibility from their notebooks.

“The MW1 is incredibly feature rich for such a compact unit,” says Lottering.

The notebook includes a six cell 2400m Li-ion battery that takes three hours to recharge and offers up to four hours battery life.

With an external VGA connector, one PCMCIA type II slot, three audio jacks, four USB port and one TV-Out (S-Video) port users should have no connectivity issues. The notebook also assures users of constant connection to the workplace with an inbuilt 56K modem and Intel’s 10/100/1000 LAN peripheral.

The 15” TFT LCD screen is enabled up to 1 024 x 768 resolution and the unit comes standard with up to 100GB 5400rpm 2.5” hard drive, a DVDRW drive and a 4-in-1 memory card reader.

“As with the entire Proline range, the MW1 has received ISO 9001 quality certification and all products within the range undergo the international WHQL (Windows Hardware Quality Labs) program, which tests the machines with a range of peripheral products to ensure that all Microsoft applications and operating systems function correctly,” Lottering says.
