System Overview

At Mitsubishi, we have a habit of re-defining standards in every field. We did it for servers. We did it for desktop connectivity. Now we’re doing it for notebooks. The Apricot AL700 sets a new standard in specification, performance, ergonomics and value for money.

Standing just 39mm high the Apricot AL700 is powered by the Intel 233Mhz Mobile Pentium ® Processor with MMX(TM) technology, backed by 48MB of onboard SDRAM as standard, plus a 512KB L2 cache and 2MB of video RAM. So believe it - this machine flies.

And it looks as good as it goes, with a 13.3" TFT screen capable of 1024 x 768 with 64k colours. There’s even output and support for PAL TV.

Storage is handled by a 3.2Gb Ultra DMA hard disk drive, while a 20-speed (max) CD-ROM drive, SoundBlaster compatible sound and built-in speaker and microphone complete the multimedia line-up. And all of this weighing in at just 2.9kg - fully configured.

Intel Mobile Processing with MMX

The Intel 233MHz Mobile Pentium ® Processor with MMX ä technology is the latest in mobile processing power. This new generation of processors is the first built on Intel's new 0.25 micron process and consumes up to 50 percent less power than the previous models, delivering longer battery life.

In addition to lower power consumption the new Pentium processors feature a 32KB on-chip cache and architectural enhancements which improve performance when running software applications such as office suites, 3-D applications, games, and CAD programs.

Powerful Performance

Packed with powerful performance features the Apricot AL700 has a superb 48MB SDRAM on-board providing higher performance levels than traditional Fast Page RAM. In addition the DIMM format allows flexible upgrade paths.

The 3.2GB Ultra DMA/33 hard disk drive adds to the system’s overall performance, doubling transfer speeds over traditional Fast ATA hard drives. A massive 512KB L2 cache completes the configuration line up.

Superb 13.3" High Resolution Colour TFT Screen

The vibrant 13.3" SVGA TFT colour screen, 1024 x 768 with 64k colours, demonstrates the latest in mobile screen technology, allowing the user to create and display stunning presentations on the move. In fact the large picture clarity of the AL700 makes it the ideal desktop alternative. For larger audiences, a PAL TV out socket enables any presentation to be displayed on a conventional TV.

Amazing Multimedia

Fully equipped with all that is necessary for multimedia, the Apricot AL700 comes with a CD-ROM drive (20x max) that can be conveniently swapped with the 1.44MB floppy disk drive or used simultaneously when plugged into the back of the notebook.

The quality SoundBlaster Pro compatible audio is complimented by built-in stereo speakers and a microphone for mobile sound. Headphone, microphone and audio in / out sockets are provided for external audio devices.

With Zoom Video available for multimedia peripherals it is possible to display full motion video on the high impact 13.3" TFT screen without slowing down system performance. For example, a portion of the display can be used as a video window without slowing down other application programs that may be running at the same time.

Interfaces and Expandability

The Apricot AL700 includes the latest PCMCIA CardBus technology providing 2 x Type II or 1 x Type III slots. A USB port for devices such as scanners, keyboards, printers and joy-sticks provide increased peripheral choice, and an industry standard IrDA 1.1 Infra red port enables cable free data transfer.
