ZEOS ANNOUNCES NEW NOTEBOOK COMPUTER
ZEOS ANNOUNCES NEW NOTEBOOK COMPUTER ST. PAUL, Minn., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- ZEOS International, Ltd.
(NASDAQ: ZEOS) today announced a smaller, lighter and more fully featured version of its popular 80386SX based notebook style computer system.
The new system, called the ZEOS Notebook 386+, features an 8.5" x 11" footprint and has been reduced in weight by nearly half a pound to 6.6 pounds. While shrinking the size and weight, ZEOS has simultaneously added a number of new features, including external keyboard and mouse ports, an increase in the maximum memory capacity to eight megabytes and the addition of a power-saving "Suspend and Resume" mode. According to ZEOS, the new notebook also includes all of the features that won its predecessor many industry awards. Among these features are built-in hard disk and floppy disk drives; a large, backlit black and white VGA display; snap-in, snap-out batteries that "quick charge" in one hour; and an optional 2400 bps modem that includes the ability to send and receive faxes. The extreme durability for which ZEOS notebooks are already well- known has also been designed into the new product. "Users consistently tell us that durability is one of the most important attributes they seek in a notebook-style computer," said Rick Apple, ZEOS' vice president of marketing. "No matter how careful a user is, the system will inevitably take some abuse while traveling, so providing a product that will hold up to the rigors of the road is among our top priorities." Also commenting on the new notebook, Greg Herrick, president of ZEOS International, said that "ZEOS' new notebook includes added benefits for customers whether they frequently use their system for traveling or only rarely do so. The frequent traveler will appreciate the lighter weight and smaller size because the system is easier to carry and can fit into an attache case with plenty of room to spare. The less frequent traveler will appreciate the versatility of this new notebook system. With an external color monitor, an external full-size keyboard, and the built in hard and floppy drives, the Notebook 386+ can be set up and used as a powerful desktop system that provides portability when needed." The ZEOS Notebook 386+ sells for $1,795 with two megabytes of memory and is available directly from the company by calling the ZEOS 24-Hour- A-Day order line. The toll-free number is 800-423-5891. ZEOS also provides purchasers of its notebook system with a 24 hour-a-day toll- free help line should they have any questions once they have received their system. In addition, purchasers receive a 30-day money-back guarantee and a full-year limited warranty.
