The Lenovo C200 notebook offers models with Intel Core 2 Duo processors that run multiple programs, such as business or multimedia applications, while simultaneously conducting virus scans. The C200 also offers Windows Vista-capable models. The notebook's curved silver exterior makes carrying more comfortable, and a 15-inch anti-glare display makes reading easier. The C200 features a five-in-one multicard reader to handle card formats from various devices, such as digital cameras, digital camcorders, USB storage devices, game controllers and digital music players. Lenovo Care tools on the C200 deliver automated updates, one-button system recovery, easy connectivity and IBM service and support.

Cool and Clear
The BenQ MP510 digital projector weighs 5.9 pounds with a footprint of 10.9 x 8.2 inches. With 1500 ANSI lumens of brightness and a 2000:1 contrast ratio, it doesn't require completely dimming a room's lights. A wall-color-correction feature eliminates the need for a projection screen and still maintains the MP510's ability to display accurate colors. The unit accepts analog RGB, component video and S-Video inputs, accommodates a wide range of digital video formats, including 480p, 576p, 720p and 1080i, and can work with many high-definition TV systems. The MP510's quick-cooling feature reduces cool-down time by more than 60 percent, and its auto-off function shuts down the projector when no data source is detected after a user-defined amount of time to save power and prevent overheating. The machine can be password protected to prevent unauthorized usage, and features front/rear and table/ceiling positioning capabilities.

Remote Printing
e-STUDIO 901 high-volume monochrome digital multifunction printer lets users access its network through a 10.4-inch Super VGA thin film transistor LCD remote touchscreen control panel. It offers 1200 dpi resolution, 8,050-sheet maximum paper capacity and an extended drum life lasting up to 2 million copies. A three-drawer large capacity feeder option features both ledger- and letter-size handling. The 100-sheet reversing automatic document feeder scans both black-and-white and color originals at an equal speed of 80 pages per minute and includes a scan-to-e-mail feature for network scanning needs.

Data Harvester
HX2 is a small, lightweight data collection computer designed to be worn on a person's arm or waist, and features a magnesium alloy front and impact-resistant screen for sturdiness. It contains an Intel XScale processor, an 802.11 radio with Bluetooth, and its large backlit keys are fully mappable so users can customize them for specific applications. The HX2 supports industrial-grade voice recognition applications. Users can run voice logistics applications and traditional barcode scanning applications on the same unit.
