IBM duly unveiled its new line of mobile computers, the ThinkPad 770 series, at Intel Corp’s Tillamook processor launch earlier this week (CI No 3,241, 3,242). IBM is fielding a range of multimedia features, and the new line of machines come with either 13.3 or 14.1 inch screens, DVD-ROM drive support, 3-D surround sound Dolby Digital audio and 32MB SDRAM as standard. The 770 range has up to 5.1Gb of hard disk and an optional Iomega Zip drive offering a further 100Mb of detachable storage. The IBM ThinkPad 770 will be available from mid-October. It costs between $6,000 and $7,200 depending on configuration and uses either the 200MHz or the 233MHz version of the new 0.25 micron Pentium with MMX, said by Intel to consume 50% less power than previous generations of chips, giving greater savings in battery time.
