CompAmerica announces 3.8 GHz P4 notebook:
November 5, 2004 - 15:04 EST
Another notebook monster with PCI Express
tech has been announced by CompAmerica. The Orca 9000 will
integrate Intel's Grantsdale chipset 915P and Nvidia's GeForce 6800
Go chip (NV41M). Nvidia has not yet announced the GPU, but besides
CompAmerica several other system manufacturers including Eurocom
already have said their notebooks will go on sale on November 8.
The Orca 9000 also comes with another not yet
announced product, Intel's 3.8 GHz Pentium 4 processor. Other
equipment includes up to 2 GByte DDR2-533 memory, two 80 GByte SATA
harddrives in RAID configuration, an 8x double-layer DVD burner, a
built in PC camera. The 17-inch display offers SXGA+ resolution
(1620x1050 pixel). All these features are neither light (11.3
pounds) nor easy on your wallet: The basic version of the
desktop-replacement notebook is priced at $2700. An Orca 900
equipped with all the goodies will quickly pass the $4000 mark.
The notebook will be available for order on November 8.
