HP has launched a new wireless ready notebook. The HP Compaq Evo N620c, which runs on the Pentium-M processor, has been designed for mobile use, complete with wireless connectivity and extended battery life.

The notebook features speeds of up to 1.6GHz, 32MB DDR SDRAM, ATI’s Mobility Radeon 7500 graphics capability and a 14.1” SXGA or XGA TFT screen. It weighs five pounds, and has a battery life of up to six hours, thanks to the Pentium-M processor, which delivers up to 70% better battery performance than the Intel Pentium4-M.

For connectivity the N620c has integrated wireless LAN and integrated gigabit 10/100/1000 LAN controller. It also has USB 2.0 and optional 802.11b and Bluetooth connectors.

The notebook also has a number of software features, including HP Mobile Printing for Notebooks software to enable printing without complex configuration processes, support for Cisco-EAP which helps control unauthorised access to Cisco wireless networks, 128-bit WEP data encryption, and HP Protect Tools Smart Card Security Manager, which enables smart card authorisation to turn use the notebook.

“Business users want technology that makes wireless communication easy, reliable and secure while still allowing them to stay productive for long periods of time,” said Christoph Schell, General Manager of the Personal Systems Group, HP Middle East. “HP understands the needs of the connected enterprise and is designing notebooks that can be implemented in IT environments without the risk of obsolescence or incompatibility.”
