14.1-inch screen notebooks due June

London-based notebook specialist ACi will ring the bell for the first round of 14.1-inch screen units in June.

The firm's Mirage mobile PC will sport the huge screen with a 1,024 x 768 resolution to deliver a viewing experience not too far short of a 17-inch CRT monitor. Based on a 200MHz Pentium MMX processor, the unit can accept up to 128Mb RAM and 6Gb of storage based on two hard drives, and comes with 16-speed CD-ROM drive. Options include a magneto-optical drive and an IC card reader.

Prices are expected to start at £2,499. ACi can be contacted by telephone on 0181-830 1958.
