Article excerpt

Introducing several industry break-throughs in color LCD technology and a new standard in modularity, NEC Technologies, Inc. (NECT) has released the Versa M Series, the newest member of its innovative family of notebook computers. The Versa M Series combines brilliant graphics performance, a high-speed engine, exceptional upgradeability, and the versatility to support the power user for even the most demanding multimedia applications.

With the introduction of the Versa M Series, NECT sets two new innovative standards, both industry firsts, for color capability in a notebook computer: VersaVision True Color for a brilliant 16 million color display and VersaVision High-Resolution Color for a high-precision 800 x 600 display capable of bringing out the finest detail. The Versa M's brilliant 9.5-inch color TFT and DSTN displays are user-removable and reversible, making the Versa M a genuinely portable presentation powerhouse. NECT has also crafted a compact microphone and a high-fidelity speaker into the Versa M's ergonomic design, providing high-quality audio.

The Versa M's VersaBay extends the modular design concept pioneered in the original Versa to support the widest range of uses. With the VersaBay, the user can easily replace the system's floppy drive with a variety of modules called "Paks." VersaBay Paks include expansion potential for a second battery, extra PCMCIA cards, and even video capabilities for watching a favorite TV show on the Versa M.

Behind the Versa M's pretty face and pleasing voice is a powerful engine capable of devouring today's demanding tasks. The Versa M includes a robust Intel DX4 75 Mhz or 100 Mhz processor, 8 MB user-upgradeable RAM and a hard disk drive up to 810 MB. Portable Power to Go and Grow
