The use of modular com ponents, such as the processor and hard disk, produces a system that offers a host of expansion options. Despite its modular design and large 11.3" displays, the SCENIC Mobile 500 makes an impressively lightweight and neat package in its compact case - ideal for users on the move and in briefcase solutions. Back in the office, the notebook can be slotted into the MobiDock expansion unit, when it is instantly transformed into a powerful desktop PC featuring PCI technology. Instead of a personal computer for the office and a notebook for computing on the move, now all you need is one system, consisting of the SCENIC Mobile 500 and the MobiDock. The notebook base All the intrinsic notebook functions are concentrated in the system base unit. This includes the PCI graphics controller with 1 MB EDO video RAM. This gives you superior graphics performance at an ergonomic 85 Hz refresh rate andrate a resolution and a resolution of of 1024 x 768 on the external monitor. The Fast-IDE hard disk is likewise connected directly to the PCI bus. Two PC Card (formerly called PCMCIA) slots permit the use of two Type I/II PC Cards or one Type III PC Card. The 16-bit stereo audio functionality and the associated external interfaces come as standard. Two slots are provided for housing the batteries (NiMH or Li-Ion). The “intelligent” batteries work on the “smart battery” principle. They feature a controller that manages important battery-related information. An infrared (IrDA) interface is also provided at the rear of the notebook, allowing wireless communication between notebooks or with peripheral devices. The processors The replaceable CPU module fitted in the SCENIC Mobile 500 features an Intel Pentium® processor running at 100 MHz, 133 MHz, 150 MHz or a 150 MHz or 166 MHz Intel Pentium® processor with MMX™ technology. Main memory MobiDock / QuickPort In its basic configuration, the notebook comes with 8 MB of RAM. This is adequate for running standard applications under MS-DOS and Windows. For more demanding, high-end applications, the RAM memory can be upgraded to a maximum of 40 MB. So you want to be mobile, yet still have a full-featured desktop PC with all the expansion options offered by an office machine featuring PCI technology? With the SCENIC Mobile 500, you have a powerful, portable system which, once back in the office, you can transform into a full-blown desktop simply by slotting it into the new MobiDock with PCI technology. The MobiDock provides three free slots for expansion cards: 1 x PCI, 1 x PCI/ISA and 1 x ISA. In addition, there are two 5.25" drive bays and one internal 3.5" drive bay. No additional controllers are necessary in order to operate IDE or SCSI drives in the MobiDock. An additional battery charging slot accommodates the NiMH or Li-Ion batteries of the SCENIC Mobile 500 or SCENIC Mobile 700. Additional functions such as full discharge, fast charge and trickle charge can be used in the MobiDock’s battery charging slot. A battery can always be charged, with or without the notebook being docked. The notebook batteries are also charged during operation of the notebook in the MobiDock. If you want to get by without a large desktop expansion, but at the same time wish to avoid the tedious chore of connecting peripherals such as an external monitor, keyboard or printer, then the QuickPort is the right choice for you. The QuickPort 300 Plus provides the added option of being able to use a PC Card Type I/II slot and a PC Card Type I/II/III slot. All electrical interfaces provided by the SCENIC Mobile 500 are also available in the MobiDock and QuickPort. The displays The displays available for the SCENIC Mobile 500 cater for all imaginable tastes. There is a choice of a brilliant, active TFT SVGA display (800 x 600 pixels) with a screen diagonal of 11.3" or an 11.3" DSTN SVGA display. Whether you need a machine for daily use outside the office or in a briefcase solution, you cannot go wrong with the SCENIC Mobile 500. The drives A Fast-IDE hard disk (directly connected to the PCI bus) with a capacity of 1.44 GB or 2.1 GB comes as sta ndard. The left-hand slot houses a battery pack, while the floppy disk drive in the right-hand slot can be replaced by a second battery pack. Powerful batteries The SCENIC Mobile 500 can be fitted with a NiMH battery or with a Li-Ion battery, which is approx. 30% lighter and also more powerful. Mixing the two, i.e. using a NiMH and a Li-Ion battery simultaneously in the SCENIC Mobile 500, is no problem. Depending on the type of application and the system configuration, this allows the notebook to operate without ac power for up to 6 hours on two batteries. Multimedia for all tastes With the support of the built-in 16-bit stereo audio sound, you can add musical accompaniment to enliven your presentations or play MPEG files. The 1MB of video memory consisting of EDO RAM modules guarantees powerful performance. The external m onitor, with its ergonomic 85 Hz refresh rate at a resolution of 1024 x 768, will ensure you make a glowing presentation. The following interfaces are provided for connecting additional options: line in, line out, loudspeaker output, microphone and Game/MIDI, plus all the standard interfaces. Touchpad - one more step along the ergonomics road For controlling the mouse, the SCENIC Mobile 500 includes a large touchpad (Microsoft mousecompatible) centrally positioned in front of the keyboard. Double-clicking directly on the touchpad is all that is required to launch an application. Ergonomic GS-approved keyboard Despite its compact dimensions, the SCENIC Mobile 500 has the same size keycaps as a standard keyboard, complete with a large Enter key. The keyboard is placed higher to provide room for a comfortable and sizable palm rest. This makes for ergonomic working in mobile use. Two extra keys are provided for fast and convenient access to Windows 95 functions. Saving energy - with Advanced Power Management Maximum performance or maximum battery life - the user has a choice of settings between these two extremes. With Advanced Power Management (APM), the amount of power consumed by system components such as the display, hard disks, floppy disk drive, interfaces, graphics and sound chip, is managed in the most efficient manner. Security Numerous security functions come as standard in the SCENIC Mobile 500. This includes password prote ction for the system or setup, as well as safeguards to prevent booting of the system from floppy disk or PC Card. When the notebook is in the MobiDock, an anti-theft lock prevents it being removed without permission. The MobiDock itself can likewise be protected by password against unauthorized use. Operating systems The SCENIC Mobile 500 ships as standard with Windows ’95 incl. anti virus program. Windows ’95 is preloaded on the hard disk (ready to run) and tuned to deliver optimum performance. Windows for Workgroups is also available as options.
