The Tecra S1 notebooks are being supplied by Toshiba's UAE distributor Al-Futtaim which is also providing a Toshiba 'eClass2Go' cabinet to store and charge the machines.
Ahmed Khalil, Middle East regional manager of Toshiba's computer systems division, said: "The Tecra S1 Centrino features integrated wireless LAN capability and extended battery life that combined with new mobile processor micro-architecture that deliver outstanding mobile performance."
The "eClass2Go" is designed for educational applications and comprises a custom-designed cabinet, fully-wired, and housing 16 wireless notebook computers, one server with wireless access, one printer, one projector, one Internet access, extra batteries and chargers.
Weighing only a few kg and mounted on castors, the cabinet can easily be wheeled from one location to another.
Once plugged into a power-point, this "classroom in a box" enables students to learn anywhere, anytime. R. Muralidharan, general manager of Al-Futtaim Electronics Toshiba, says that although the system is primarily designed for classrooms, it is also ideal for other applications, including media and audit firms.
The theme of the Intel media lounge is 'Unwire & Unwind', offering relaxing surroundings and all-day catering.
