 Eurocom Corporation, the Canadian leader in Desktop Replacement Notebooks(tm), is pushing the limits of portable computing with the addition of the 14 GB hard drive. The 14 GB hard drive is available in the EUROCOM 8500 DeskNote (tm) - making it the notebook with the greatest storage capability available on the marketplace.
"All of our fully upgradeable notebooks are updated on a regular basis to keep up-to-date with current technology," says Mark Bialic, president of Eurocom Corporation. "Because of the innovative, upgradeable, and flexible design of our EUROCOM DeskNotes(tm), we are able to integrate new technology into our products as it becomes available on the marketplace. This integration of new technology allows for the longer life of our notebooks, an impressive three to five years, and it further demonstrates Eurocom's leadership in desktop replacement notebook technology." Eurocom's high-end notebook, the EUROCOM 8500 DeskNote(tm), is the epitome of the single computer solution. At only 9.5 pounds, it offers the same power as a desktop system without the inconvenience of a desktop's size and immobility.
The EUROCOM 8500 DeskNote(tm) features a 15.1-inch XGA Active Matrix LCD, which is comparable to a desktop's 17-inch monitor, up to a 400 MHz Intel Pentium II processor or up to a 500 MHz Intel Celeron processor, up to 384 MB of SDRAM, 8 MB of video SGRAM, which compliments an ATI 3D RAGE LT PRO graphics chip with an accelerated graphics port (AGP), two removable hard drives which offer up to 28 GB of storage space, a removable 3.5-inch floppy or an optional LS-120 or a Zip drive, a removable 24x CD-ROM or an optional 4x DVD-ROM drive, and a full-size, 102-key keyboard with numeric keypad. The EUROCOM 8500 DeskNote starts at $3,299 Cdn ($2,199 US). What's more, the EUROCOM 8500 DeskNote(tm)'s highlights extend beyond its specifications to include the philosophy that lies behind it. Unlike most notebooks, as a Desktop Replacement Notebook(tm), the EUROCOM 8500DeskNote(tm) isn't designed to compliment desktops - it aims to completely replace them.
"Eurocom's DeskNotes(tm) offer an ideal computing solution because they replace the work PC, the home computer, and the laptop with a single, mobile solution," says Bialic.
