 "Nobody would buy a Pentium desktop PC without a PCI bus," said
Nassir Ahmed, Worldwide Portable Products Marketing Director for
Texas Instruments. "Therefore, there's no reason to consider a
Pentium notebook without a PCI bus either.
 "The PCI bus is essential to achieving true Pentium performance,"
Ahmed continued. "By including PCI bus architecture, the TI
TravelMate 5000 offers users desktop performance now, plus investment
protection in the future by taking advantage of the full plug and
play capabilities of PCI and Windows 95."
 The TravelMate 5000 offers extensive expansion capabilities.
System expandability will initially be provided through two docking
options: the EZ-Dock and the EZ-Dock Plus. The EZ-Dock includes a
serial and parallel port, with VGA, mouse and keyboard connections.
The EZ-Dock Plus includes the above plus two Type III PCMCIA slots,
fast SCSI II, and a complete audio system with a MIDI/Game port and
speakers. Additional system expansion options will be announced with
the availability of Windows 95.
