Digital Unveils Passport 2000
Digital, premier mobile technology manufacturer, recently unveiled
its Passport 2100 Series - the newest addition to its family
of Intel-based PC notebooks. The laptop features a Pentium®
IV processor with speeds of 2.2 Ghz and above, an extra sharp
15” 1400 x 1050 SXGA Active Matrix TFT display, 512MB
of system memory, and up to 60GB of hard drive storage. Although
the SecureME hardware-based password-access security feature
available on previous iterations is regrettably absent from
the 2100, the latest version does provide external CD controls
which allow the unit to be used for playback, even when
design is superior to plastic casings, because we use magnesium
on both the top and bottom of our notebook” comments Ben
Totanes, Ashton Digital’s Sales and Marketing Director.
“The advantage of this is that the laptop is lighter,
thinner, stronger, and better able to dissipate heat than traditional
models. Our CPU runs cooler than those of typical notebooks,
which trap heat inside the unit. This feature reduces the frequency
of crashes and improves reliability,” he adds.
multimedia power users, the Passport 2100 offers the ATI Radeon
Mobility 4x AGP/3D Graphics accelerator, a DVD-ROM/CD-RW
drive, and a TV-out port (NTSC/PAL) with MacroVision Capability.
This latter feature allows the user to connect the system to
a television and watch DVD movies through the TV’s screen,
a function perfect for presentations. Ashton Digital, based
in Milpitas, CA, is a manufacturer of notebook computers, LCD
