Disc Makers released the MicroUltra, a single-drive automated DVD duplicator optimized to work exclusively with the company's Disc Makers Ultra media. The MicroUltra -- with the latest 16x Plextor DVD+/-R/48x CD-R drive and a 75-disc input bin -- allows for hours of unattended DVD and CD duplication. The MicroUltra produces virtually no rejects and its compact footprint fits comfortably on a desktop. The unit is backed by a two-year warranty on robotics and free lifetime technical support. The optional heavy-duty 4800 dpi Autograph color inkjet printer produces detailed images and vibrant colors for high-quality on-disc printing.
Dell's XPS M140 notebook weighs less than 5.5 pounds and measures 1.5 inches thick. It sports a 14.1-inch screen, comes with 40, 60 or 80 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, and up to 2.13 GHz of processing power. A fixed 24x CD-RW/DVD combo drive is standard, with an optional 8x DVD+/-RW combination drive including double-layer write capability. The unit also has integrated stereo sound and two internal 1.5-watt speakers.
NEC Display's AccuSync LCD52V-BK-TR touch-resistive LCD screen offers more than 16 million display colors and can be operated with a finger, gloved hand or stylus. Insulator layers in the resistive display are designed to protect the screen's circuitry in high temperatures and humidity. The unit provides contrast ratios as high as 450:1 and measures 13.6 (w) x 13.9 (h) x 6.5 (d) inches with the stand. Rapid Response technology provides for uninterrupted display of full-motion video with response times of 25 milliseconds or less.
