announces the Neo 101 Netbook
Stone Neo 101 delivers performance, practicality and portability with the reassurance of an unrivalled three year product warranty
At the heart of the Neo 101, is an Intel® Atom™ processor. Designed specifically for netbook applications, it optimises energy efficiency in order to extend battery life. The Neo 101 also helps users stay connected, thanks to its internal WiFi card or optional internal 3G module, which provides fast and seamless internet access. The inclusion of a 1.3 mega pixel camera means keeping in touch with family, friends and colleagues via live messaging and video conferencing is easy. In addition to the two USB ports, there is also a 34mm PCI-Express Card expansion slot for specialist applications such as infrared or smartcard readers.
The Neo 101 is also extremely user-friendly, thanks to a near-full sized keyboard which features key tops that are 90% of the size of a desktop’s key tops. This ensures that accurate typing and navigation on the Neo 101 is a breeze, even for adult users. It is easy on the user’s eye too, thanks to a 10.1” wide-screen WSVGA (1024 x 600) display. Portability is another one of the Neo 101’s assets; weighing in at just 1.3kgs, the Neo 101 is one of the lightest netbooks available, making it an ideal travel companion. The four-cell battery back has been neatly incorporated in to the netbook’s robust chassis, while the internal 3G module negates the need for vulnerable external dongles.
