MICRONPC.COM EXPANDS THE TRANSPORT LINE OF NOTEBOOK COMPUTERS.

TransPort(R) GX and GX+ notebook computers, the latest members of the award-winning TransPort family of portable PCs, are now available from Micron Electronics, Inc. (Nasdaq:MUEI).

Weighing less than seven pounds and priced competitively at $3,499, the new micronpc.com notebooks are powerful, expandable desktop replacement solutions designed for the mobile professional.

"Many of our small- and medium-sized business customers are on the go -- traveling frequently or telecommuting," says Jeffrey K. Moeser, senior vice president of product development for micronpc.com. "These customers require a fully functional desktop replacement to meet their needs. The TransPort GX is the perfect solution for customers seeking a high-end, high-performance, no-compromise mobile solution."

Chief among the TransPort GX's array of benefits is backwards compatibility with TransPort ZX peripheral devices, including the port replicator, batteries, and AC adaptor. "Backwards compatibility is important from a corporate investment standpoint because it lowers the total cost of ownership for the TransPort GX," explains Moeser. "Having already invested in peripherals for the TransPort ZX, business customers can deploy the new GX and take advantage of their earlier peripheral investment. This enables them to amortize those costs over a longer period of time."

Featuring 3-spindle design, the TransPort GX and GX+ offer complete flexibility in computing by allowing simultaneous use of the floppy drive, hard drive, and CD-ROM drive. Mini-PCI combo card options and internal RJ-11 and RJ-45 jacks dramatically ease connectivity in all environments. In addition, a hot-swap modular device bay provides impressive expansion for peripherals.

The TransPort GX and GX+ support Intel(R) Celeron and Pentium(R) III processors with SpeedStep Technology, which helps conserve battery power while on the road.

Micronpc.com backs the TransPort GX and GX+ with its award-winning package of service and support for mobile products including three-day Depot Repair, Advanced Portable Exchange, and Subscription Computing. The TransPort GX and GX+ come with a 5-year limited warranty on the CPU and memory and a 1-year limited warranty.
