3K Computers (3K), an information-technology manufacturer, today announced the release of its newest laptop computer - the 3K RazorBook 400 Mini Notebook Ultra Mobile PC. The new notebook weighs less than two pounds and includes a 7-inch LCD TFT Display and a full-size keyboard. It is competitively priced and retails for a very affordable $299.
The RazorBook 400 works great as a low-cost portable internet appliance for mobile professionals, students, internet browsing on the go, playing Flash games, secure online shopping, instant messaging, and playing music and movies while traveling..
With a boot-up time of less than 8 seconds, the RazorBook 400 was designed to be turned on and off instantly just like any other home appliance. The energy-saving processor operates without a fan and provides completely quiet computing with very low energy consumption.
Online banking operates securely with one of the notebook’s other popular features, the Trojan-free and virus-free operating system. Without a spinning hard disk drive, the RazorBook 400 is also shock-resistant and holds 4GB of solid-state storage for documents or media files.
Students and travelers will especially appreciate the RazorBook 400 Mini Notebook UMPC since it supports mobile broadband Internet use, rich web content, and is equipped to handle basic business tasks with an included suite of Office tools. The open source Office Suite opens most Microsoft (News
) Word Files and Excel Files, includes an E-mail Client, and a PDF Reader.
Additionally, users can access Microsoft Outlook e-mail through the included Mozilla Firefox browser. Also, there is a collection of consumer software included with applications such as games, schedulers, music players, movie players, planners and more.
"The day has finally arrived and the 3K RazorBook 400 is now hitting the US market. We just lowered our MSRP to $299 as part of this exciting announcement. There has been a lot of comparison from bloggers to the Asus eeePC due to its similar 7-inch LCD form factor. The 3K RazorBook 400 is a unique product that was designed as a low-cost ($299) portable Internet appliance, not to replace your home PC or Notebook computer," said Dan Jacobs, CEO, 3K Computers.
The RazorBook 400 is available at most major online e-tailers for consumers. Resellers and Value-Added Resellers can purchase directly from Ingram Micro (News
), a global technology distributor.
