MPC Computers Introduces the TransPort T2200 Notebook Computer; Expands MPC's Offerings of Intel(R) Centrino Technology.

NAMPA, Idaho, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- MPC Computers, a Gores Technology Group company, today announced the TransPort(R) T2200 notebook computer offering outstanding performance in a sleek, lightweight design. Utilizing Intel's new Centrino technology, this system provides longer battery life and enhanced wireless connectivity. The new system also features high-speed 333Mhz memory expandable up to 2GB for greater overall system performance.

The thin and light TransPort T2200 offers a choice of 14.1" or 15.0" displays. Supporting 802.11b/g wireless connectivity, the new notebook allows users to connect at a higher speed while utilizing the latest worldwide standards in wireless technology.

"The TransPort T2200 will appeal to users who seek high-end performance in a compact notebook form factor," said Paul Petersen, MPC's vice-president of product marketing and development. "It offers the latest in Centrino and wireless technology, and provides robust enhancements to our thin & light notebook product line."

The T2200 is the follow-on product to the TransPort T2000. It incorporates such features as:
 * dedicated memory for graphics, which ensures peak performance while
 using graphic intensive programs

 * a 3-in-1 media reader, allowing quick and easy transfer of various
 media such as memory stick, secure digital or multi-media

 * legacy ports for parallel, serial and PS2 connections

 * a full function docking station

It is also backward compatible with MPC's TransPort T2000 docking station, which eliminates the need to purchase a new docking station.

To meet customers' needs for security, the TransPort T2200 also features MPC's unique fingerprint recognition system. When enabled, this feature requires the user to properly scan his or her fingerprint before being granted access to the system. The fingerprint recognition feature can also be applied to specific files or applications on the PC, which automatically encrypts select data files or folders to ensure that only authorized users will be able to access their own data. Additionally, fingerprint recognition also provides the benefit of replacing all the user's passwords in one simple scan of the finger.
