CompAmerica Challenges IBM, HP and Toshiba by Adding to It's
Industry Leading PCI-EXPRESS 64 Bit Laptop Line: the ORCA
7000x and the PANTHER 4080x, the first of their kind.
"The first PCIx model in the industry, the ORCA9000x, has
sold hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide," stated company
president Dr. Jack Shulman. "While we were busy prepping these
two new models, we outsold the industry in this class of machine
3 to 1. We broke a record with the 9000. We expect the 7000 and
the 4080 to exceed the popularity of the 9000 because of their
more diverse appeal."
CompAmerica has challenged every other laptop manufacturer to
achieve as "high performance and long battery life, light weight
and yet still provide desktop PCIx16 graphics and 6 to 8 channel
audio in the same package."
The products are being offered to both resellers and direct
by the internet.
"We are selling to stores, resellers, and directly, with a
unique approach that allows consumers to buy our highest volume
sellers at a much lower price than if they were classified as a
single laptop buyer." stated Shulman, adding: "while we make a
little bit lower profit margin, we almost double sales. Our
unique 'configure the laptop your way' approach to selling
works. Rather than fixating on feature specific models, we offer
full customization. Then, we came up with this unique idea:
'higher volume, lower price in the spotlight' systems, systems
which rise to the top of the demand curve (in other words, which
sell at a higher volume) we offer a 'feature set discount' on.
This is a process the industry hasn't noticed, allowing us the
austerity of a model oriented laptop product line like Compaq
and IBM, and the desirable appeal of a fully customizable laptop
product line at the same time."
"All of the products may be ordered with any choice of
additional component, while certain models ordered more
frequently by the public, are available with extra discounts."
Shulman characterized the approach, which enables CompAmerica
to be less expensive than it's competitors: 'demand driven
"It's a major advantage since we have 'product families'
rather than individual models, and 'product spotlight
configurations' - high demand configurations, that we can
discount without hurting us or the consumer".
The new "ORCA" and "PANTHER" models consist of:
15.4" ORCA 7000x
-- a new 15.4" Wide Ultra or Super XGA+ System. Similar to
its bigger 17" PCI-x based brother, the hot selling ORCA 9000,
introduced in January 2005, a model which has gotten rave
reviews and has sold out every month of it's production: the
7000x has what the company calls "even more refinements, it's
slightly smaller screen allowed us to make it more compact than
other super laptop desktop pcs. It's performance is unequalled."
The 7000x, in addition to supporting the new INTEL LGA-775
Pentium 4 64Bit CPU technology, is said to break all performance
barriers. Also representing what CompAmerica believes is a
unique innovation, the system sports a new silver and gray
designer chassis that the company indicated: "we believe exceeds
Toshiba, Compaq and IBM in overall appearance and appeal."
"We designed an angle front design that makes it convenient
with ready access to MP3/CD player while traveling. It's lighter
weight than usual laptops in it's league. And we equipped it
with a 6 Speaker SRS audio and ultra wide angle Glass View video
screen, so as to appeal to users desiring a more refined visual
and listening experience" stated a spokesperson.
The system incorporates an exceptional Radeon x800 video
adapter, designed with an advanced CPU with unique features only
available from ATI. The x800 includes 256MB of DDR3 video
memory, making the ORCA 7000 the perfect mobile desktop,
multimedia, cad-cam and gaming computer.
The system also has another feature not found on most
laptops: an integral cable ready TV Tuner which, with the new 6
Speaker audio system built in, gigabit Ethernet and wifi G/B
ready wireless, makes it the most robust laptop of it's kind,
the company indicated.
"We can play IP TV side by side with Cable or Satellite TV,
and DVD, all on the same machine, it's a convergence of
technology unheard of in the rest of the industry..." remarked
the company president.
"As a result", a company spokesperson added: "The 7000x
refines the notion of a mobile personal computer into a business
and entertainment platform."
"With it's full support for INTEL"s Pentium 4 EM64T CPUs we
have both bus and eventually, instruction set compatibility with
Microsoft's 64Bit Windows XP (news
web sites) and Longhorn Operating Systems (coming down the
road in 2005). No other laptop has tried to accomplish this
feat. These successor CPUs from INTEL with full 64Bit
instruction set will be integrated into the 7000x, 9000x and
4080x over time, and we have already confirmed we're compatible
with both 32 and 64 bit Windows. We address speeds up to 3.8GHz
or faster today, 2GB of DDR2 Ram today, and up to a 100GB Hard
Drive today, who knows how fast or high we'll go tomorrow, but
we've equipped it accordingly. We feel that business travelers
can now truly take their office with them, while also using it
for personal entertainment while on downtime. And those needing
mobility for other purposes can do likewise."
The company indicated that another unique feature: the unit
comes with a hot swappable Floppy, allows it to be swapped with
a choice of 2nd Battery for longer time between charges, 2nd
Hard Drive for mirroring or extended storage or a 2nd Optical
Device such as CDRW or DVRW for any purpose. A DVRW Dual Layer
-/+ Burner is available on all models.
"As a result, buyers will be able to upgrade without any form
of system modification", stated a company spokesperson. "Smart
bays have always been a risky solution at best, however we've
come up with one that resists breakage and manages a positive
lock, so the consumer can not break them, even if being
For full specifications of the ORCA 7000x, go here:
The company indicated the modest price tag on the 7000x
begins at $1965.
The second new model is:
The PANTHER 4080x
-- a new 15" Wide and Slim SuperXGA+ model, the Silver Eagle
4080x, is said also to be a first for CompAmerica.
"It combines the new 533MHz bus INTEL CENTRINO PENTIUM M
(DOTHAN 533) CPU with 2M on-die L2 Cache up- to 2.13GHz or
faster, and INTEL"s famed CENTRINO Mobil system logic. In other
words, you get both PCI-EXPRESS and CENTRINO Mobility, with
INTEL"s PCI Express graphics. We find this prolongs battery life
while giving desktop PC Speed" stated company president Jack A.
The 7 lb. compact big screen unit is said to be offered to
the public starting at under $1500 at promotional prices.
"We're offering the new ATI Radeon x700 PCI-x16 Graphics
normally only found on gaming and desktop multimedia PCs. This
allowed us to achieve startlingly crisp graphics, gaming speed,
multimedia that makes this traveler a hardy companion when
watching DVDs or streaming Video content on the Internet. And,
because of the trimness of the Centrino logic, we were able to
build a smaller mainboard, the unit is under an inch thick and
weighs in well below the usual 10 lbs a 15" screen laptop
normally does," stated a company marketing staffer, "the first
day it was on the market, five of my customers ordered
evaluation models for their traveling executives, the size and
weight and global mobility at a very low price, led them to
conclude that we had the only game in town."
The company president added: "We designed a functionally
beautiful styled designer chassis rounds out an unusual product
that leaves nothing to the imagination. High fi speakers are
supported by SRS and WOW with optional 8-channel external audio
output. It's a true traveling entertainment and business
machine, with choice of desktop speakers for use at home or
office. We believe it to be superior to any other similar 15"
widescreen model out there."
