Siemens Nixdorf has announced the expansion of its award
winning notebook family in the midrange price segment, with
the introduction of the SCENIC Mobile 510. With a basic
weight of below 2.0kg - lighter than many PC magazines - and
optionally equipped with a 166, 200 or 233 MHZ Pentium MMX
processor, the SCENIC Mobile 510 is an essential notebook
for those requiring a vital mix of performance and light

The new SCENIC Mobile 510 model is available in the UK
immediately, with pricing ranging from £3,099 for the P166
MMX, 2GB, 32MB, 12.1 TFT, 20x CD, lithium ion model to
£3,399 for the 233 MMX, 2GB, 32MB, 12.1 TFT, 20xCD variant.

The combination of a basic weight of less than 2kg with the
performance of a high-end notebook ensures that the SCENIC
Mobile 510 can stand out from rival vendors' offerings.
Design remains an important selling point, and the SCENIC
Mobile 510 has a stylish and slim wedge design with rounded
edges and a flat case. As with other SCENIC mobiles, the
SCENIC Mobile 510 is a characteristic ‘tendency green'

"Weight is the Achilles' heel of notebook design," commented
Steve Gales, senior marketing manager, Siemens Nixdorf. "The
SCENIC Mobile 510 provides users with a true no compromise
desktop alternative which is incredibly light.

Together with an optional second battery the SCENIC Mobile
510 can provide users with an operating time of over five
hours. The SCENIC Mobile 510 also features the worlds first
hot swap power supply for external or internal use in the
media bay.

The SCENIC Mobile 510 is driven by an Intel Pentium MMX
processor running at 166 MHZ with 256 KB second level cache,
or a 200 MHZ or 233 MHZ processor with 512 KB second level
cache on upgradable MMO module.

The SCENIC Mobile 510 is modular in design, ensuring easy
upgradability from the hard disk to the processor and
enabling the SCENIC Mobile 510 to cater for tomorrow's
power-hungry applications. The memory options range up to
128 MB of EDO or SD RAM. A fast-IDE hard disk with a
capacity of 2.1 GB or 3.0 GB is operated directly via the
PCI bus. Users can choose between displays with either
12.1-inch TFT SVGA or 12.1-inch DSTN SVGA screens.

The integrated MPEG (Motion Picture Experts Group) solution
for data compression, in conjunction with 16-bit stereo
audio sound with 3D-effects and a 2MB EDO RAM video memory,
make the SCENIC Mobile 510 the obvious choice for
professional presentations featuring full motion video.

Linking up to the ‘MobiDock' docking station turns the
SCENIC Mobile 510 into a desktop fully functional PC. The
optional ‘QuickPort' simplifies the connection of
peripherals, permitting all external devices to be hooked up
centrally to one port, whilst the user who wants to avoid
the nuisance of cables can employ the fast infrared
interface for access to peripherals. - ends -About Siemens
