high-end multimedia notebook to set new industry
standards














Siemens Nixdorf Enterprise & Personal Computing Division
today announced the pricing of the SCENIC Mobile 800, its
new high-end multimedia notebook.

This stylish notebook, which boasts some of the hottest new
technology in the market, is priced at £4,499, excluding
VAT. Shipments will begin in July, with widespread
availability from August.

Senior product manager Steve Gales said: "The SCENIC Mobile
800 sets new standards in mobile computing. It's the world's
first notebook PC to feature a detachable infra-red keyboard
and an integral chipcard reader as standard. This key
security feature ensures total protection of mobile data as
well as the ability to use security solutions such as
TrustedNet or chipcard-based home banking applications."













The SCENIC Mobile 800 also has the distinction of being the
world's first 100% recyclable notebook PC. It is encased in
an environmentally-friendly magnesium chassis which provides
maximum durability, exceptional heat dissipation
capabilities and stylish good looks.

The new notebook is powered by the ultra-fast 266Mhz Intel
Pentium* II processor and incorporates Siemens Nixdorf's
advanced FlexiBay technology. This technology enables the
internal hard drive to be expanded from 5 GB as standard to
24 GB, which is the largest capacity available on any
notebook PC. The FlexiBay modules can also be used to
support the standard 24x CD-ROM drive or optional DVD/ZIP.

Four slots allow the notebook's memory to be individually
configured with between 64 MB and 256 MB of SDRAM. To
satisfy high-end multimedia needs, the SCENIC Mobile 800
features a 14.1-inch display and offers 4 MB of SGRAM, full
screen/full motion MPEG 2 playback and integrated 3-D stereo
sound. For highly intensive graphics applications, the new
product uses an ATI Rage Pro LT 3-D graphics chipset.
