BenQ, has started shipping the latest addition to the Joybook range of laptops, the Joybook 6000 for the Middle East market. The 12.1-inch high definition wide-screen notebook claims an 8-hour battery life with wireless internet accessibility. Powered by Intel’s 1.4 G/hz Centrino, 256 M/bytes of memory (RAM) with 1280 X 800 high resolution, the new model is targeted at business travellers. “Extending our vision for digital hub products into the business sector is a natural step, and we are confident that professional customers will recognise the huge value that the Joybook 6000 can deliver,” says Robert Dung, managing director, BenQ Middle East. The US$3.5 billion vendor’s ‘digital hub’ model envisions an environment when all forms of technology such as hardware, software and drivers are brought together without compatibility problems and with full integration. “BenQ’s Joybook range has proved extremely success in the personal entertainment markets of the Middle East. Now, the Joybook 6000 offers high specifications and interoperability that business people in the Middle East require,” adds Dung. The Joybook 6000’s integrated wireless networking facility allows users to access the internet whenever they are in the vicinity of a Wi-Fi hotspot. When users are unable to access hotspots, they can use the inbuilt Bluetooth or infrared (IrDA) to connect with a mobile phone and link to the internet by GPRS data connection says BenQ. Other features include PCMCIA slots and a 3-in-1-card reader which supports SD, MMC and memory sticks. The Joybook 6000 is priced at US$1450 and the Joybook 6000N at US$1650.
