Optima Technology has announced its new Centoris RW Series of ultra-portable notebooks based on the Intel Pentium M Processor.

Weighing in at 2.2kg, the new notebook will retail under $1600. Beefed up to handle media, the Centoris notebooks are built around an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900 that supports up to 128MB of memory. The notebook also includes an Intel 915GM Express Chipset, which supports Intel’s new PCI Express graphics interface and up to 2GB of DDR2 RAM.

Magnus Long, Notebook Product Manager, Optima said: “Although the RW Series is compact and lightweight unit, its still features a 14-inch widescreen display, which offers the same viewing space as a standard 15-inch LCD panel.

 “This display size is favoured by occupational health and safety boards as it allows for a more comfortable viewing experience for end-users, minimising eye strain.”

Powered by a Li-Ion 6 Cell battery and with the latest Centrino Intel PRO/Wireless tri-mode (802.11a/b/g) card, the RW Series is pre-loaded with Windows XP Professional.
