 EVEREX INTRODUCES SL/25 NOTEBOOK WITH REMOVABLE 80MB HARD DRIVE
 AND BUILT-IN TRACKBALL AT $2,699
 NEW YORK, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Everex Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: EVRX) today introduced the Carrier SL/25, the first notebook computer with a removable hard drive and built-in trackball. The 5.8-pound computer, based on the Intel 25MHz 386SL processor, features 64K internal cache to bring powerful 32-bit processing to notebook computing.
 Genelle Trader, vice president of marketing, said, "Users today want notebook computers with all the features and functionality of a desktop. The Carrier SL/25 provides them with exactly that. The removable hard drive is a significant new feature that our customers have asked for. Users can easily remove the hard drive for added data security, and several users can use the same notebook at various times and always keep their applications and data with them on the small 2.5-inch drive."
 The Carrier SL/25 also supports APM (Advanced Power Management), a key part of Microsoft's recent Power Management Initiative. APM defines the power management relationship between hardware and software in several ways to provide maximum power efficiency while ensuring compatibility. One of the most visible benefits of APM is the appearance of the power icon in the Windows 3.1 control panel -- which provides a battery fuel gauge. Other Carrier SL/25 features include:
 -- Optional desktop drive adaptor for interoperability between
 desktop and portable environments
 -- Uninterrupted battery exchange allows user to "hot swap"
 batteries without stopping or suspending an application. Each
 battery weighs only 12.8 ounces
 -- Battery recharge time of 50 minutes -- industry fastest/operates
 in either AC or trickle charge
 -- Built-in virus detection at system level
 -- Simultaneous display on CRT and LCD -- beneficial in
 presentation-type situations
 -- Flash BIOS for easy upgrade by floppy disk
 -- Instant power-on capability by opening lid
 -- Multilevel Power Management, with application-compatible
 Suspend/Resume
 -- Easy upgradeability path with user-installable memory,
 coprocessor and internal modem
 The standard configuration of the Carrier SL/25 includes 4MB RAM and the removable 80MB hard drive. The unit, priced at $2,699, will begin shipping in July. A configuration featuring a removable 120MB hard drive will be priced at $2,999. Designed by Everex, the Carrier SL/25 will be manufactured by Everex in Fremont, Calif.
