Range 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 AL range of notebooks set new standards in specification, performance, ergonomics and value for money, with the choice of either Pentium 233MHz MMX processing and a 13.3" XGA TFT screen on the AL700, or a Pentium II 266MHz processor and a 14.2" screen on the AL720.

Standing just 39mm high and backed by 48MB of SDRAM as standard, plus a 512KB L2 cache and up to 4MB of video RAM. Believe it these machines fly.

And they look as good as they go, with the 13.3" or 14.2" screens capable of 1024 x 768 with 64k colours providing superb viewing areas. There's even output and support
for PAL TV.

Storage is handled by an Ultra DMA hard disk drive, whilst the swappable 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

Standard Features and Benefits
Intel Mobile Pentium II
The mobile Pentium II processor brings a new level of performance and computing capabilities not previously available to mobile PC users. Pentium II processor-based mobile PCs deliver the performance required to run today's most advanced applications and provide the headroom to meet the performance demands of future versions of operating systems.

The mobile Pentium II processor delivers the advanced performance capabilities of the P6 micro architecture whilst meeting the unique power consumption and size requirements of mobile PCs. The mobile Pentium II processor is available in an innovative "mini-cartridge" package, which contains the processor core and closely coupled 512K
level 2 cache. The mini-cartridge is about one-fourth the weight, one-sixth the size and consumes two-thirds of the power of the Pentium II processor desktop Single Edge Connector (SEC) cartridge, making it well-suited for today's broad range of mobile PCs.

Powerful Performance
Packed with powerful performance features the Apricot AL720 has a superb 48MB SDRAM providing higher performance levels than traditional Fast Page RAM. In addition the DIMM format allows flexible upgrade paths.

The 4.0GB 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 High Resolution Colour TFT Screens
The vibrant 14.2" SVGA TFT colour screens, 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 AL720 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 AL720 comes with a CD-ROM drive (24x max) that can be conveniently swapped with the 1.44MB floppy disk drive or used simultaneously when plugged into the back
of the notebook

Floppy.gif (13718 bytes)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 14.2" 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 AL720 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.

12 Months Free Internet Access*
