Support for Legacy Ports

Apr 24, 2006, 01:00 ET from MPC Computers

    NAMPA, Idaho, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- MPC Computers, a wholly owned
 subsidiary of HyperSpace Communications, Inc. (Amex:   HCO), today announced
 the TransPort(R) T3200 notebook computer. This new system offers the latest
 in high-performance technology, along with support for legacy features.
     The notebook's Intel 945PM chipset supports 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM memory,
 Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo mobile processor technology, and the ATI Mobility(TM)
 Radeon(R) X1600 graphics card. Intel Core Duo technology provides improved
 system performance by running multiple tasks simultaneously, and the
 enhanced graphics card utilizes dedicated video memory to ensure peak
 performance for graphics-intensive programs.
     In addition, the TransPort T3200 notebook supports legacy features such
 as parallel, serial and PS2 ports, which allow users to use their existing
 peripherals such as printers, scanners, keyboards and mice. The new system
 is also backwards compatible with the previous TransPort 3000 notebook
 series' port replicator. The full-featured port replicator eliminates the
 need for additional cables to connect monitors, keyboards and mice.
     The TransPort T3200 also includes integrated multi-level security
 features such as the Biometric Fingerprint Scanner, Smart Card Reader, and
 Trusted Platform Module, all ensuring greater overall system protection.
 Other security enhancements to the notebook include an optional Global
 Positioning System (GPS) module and a tool-less removable hard drive. The
 GPS/GPRS option allows users to track and recover the notebook in case of
 theft, and the tool-less removable hard drive enables users to easily
 remove and store confidential hard drive data in a secure environment.
     "The TransPort T3200 notebook is packed with both new and legacy
 features for users seeking the ultimate in powerful notebook computing,"
 said Paul Petersen, MPC's senior vice president of product marketing and
 development. "This system offers outstanding performance in a lightweight
 two-spindle design."

     *  The new Intel PRO Wireless(R) 3945ABG mini-card with integrated
        Bluetooth technology, which enables wireless connectivity for a

        users with a sharp, clear image.

        a choice between an optical drive, additional battery, second hard
        drive or an air-bay, while the bridge battery feature enables users to
        hot-swap primary batteries while the system is powered on.
