Optima has set a new price point with its KN Series 15.4 inch widescreen notebook selling with an RRP of only $1,799.
The Centrino notebook is a balance between power and cost in a package that delivers surround sound and widescreen viewing in a very affordable package that illustrates what we can expect form other vendors in the near future.
Optima lists the battery performance of the new model at up to four hours of continuous usage. Optimised for media graphics are handled by an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900 supporting up to128 MB of memory.
Using the Mobile Intel 915GM Express Chipset, supporting up to 2GB of DDR2 memory, integrated high-definition 5.1 Channel surround sound and an LCD with 1200×800 resolution the notebook should handle DVDs with ease. The DVD spindle in the KN Series is a Dual Layer DVD+/-RW Burner.
