Averatec Introduces Industry's Lightest 17-inch Widescreen Infotainment Notebook Combining Maximum Productivity and Multimedia Entertainment
SANTA ANA, Calif., April 13 / -- Averatec Inc., a leader in innovative mobile computing products, today announced its largest form factor notebook to date with the introduction of the 17-inch widescreen, 7100 Series infotainment notebook.
Powered by AMD Turion(TM) 64 mobile technology, the 7100 Series delivers an outstanding digital entertainment experience coupled with high-performance processing designed to handle today's demanding business applications.
"Delivering value and uncompromising productivity has always been a cornerstone of Averatec's mobile computing solutions," said Saeed Shahbazi, president of Averatec. "Averatec's new 17-inch widescreen form factor notebook is staying in step with today's active lifestyles, which demand comprehensive multimedia capabilities along with highly capable computing functionality."
With its sleek black styling, trim 1-inch profile, and weighing in at an industry-light 7.2 pounds, the 7100 Series features a super-bright 17-inch WXGA widescreen display with Averatec's distinctive AveraBrite(TM) technology. This innovative technology features a brighter, crystal-clear screen that's ideal for displaying favorite DVDs, videos, digital photos or graphics-intensive presentations.
The 7100 Series offers advanced power management tools and the latest wireless technologies to keep users easily connected at home or while traveling. With an integrated Gigabit wired network, which is up to 10 times faster than standard 100-Mbit Ethernet, the model provides the fastest network connection available today. A full-featured notebook, the 7100 Series offers a standard full-size keyboard with a separate full-size numeric keypad, memory expandable to 2 GB, an 80 or 100 GB hard drive, a built-in dual-layer DVD/CD burner and an integrated 5-in-1 media card reader that supports xD, MS, MS PRO, MMC and SD memory card formats. The notebook's IEEE 1394 FireWire interface and three high-speed USB 2.0 ports facilitate fast digital video, audio and data transfer so users can spend less time downloading entertainment and more time enjoying it.
Offered with either Microsoft® Windows® XP Home, Professional or Media Center Edition installed, the 7100 Series is also Microsoft Windows Vista-capable. Providing customers with complete online protection, Averatec 7100 Series notebooks come fully loaded with a trial version of ZoneAlarm® Internet Security Suite 6.0. This best-of-breed firewall, anti-spam and antivirus protection software is designed to provide comprehensive protection against malicious hackers, spyware, worms, identity thieves, spam and data theft. In addition, the notebook includes Phoenix FirstWare Recover software and a trial version of the Recover Pro software, a recovery solution that stores user data, applications and the operating system in the secured host-protected area (HPA) of the hard drive.
The notebook is available at retailers including Staples, Circuit City, OfficeMax, Sam's Club, AAFES, Fred Meyer, FutureShop (Canada) and MicroCenter. The 7100 Series also is available through Averatec's distribution partners, D&H, Ingram Micro and Tech Data, as well as at shopaveratec.com.
