CTL debuts the 14-inch MB40U business notebook
The US-based company CTL has reportedly introduced a new portable computer dubbed MB40U, which is targeted towards business professionals on-the-go. According to the manufacturer, this lightweight device comes with an integrated Intel graphics controller and Ubuntu 11.10 operating system.
Customers are provided with an Intel Core i3-2330M (up to an Intel Core i7-2630QM) central processing unit operating at a frequency of 2.2GHz and 2GB of internal DDR3 memory that is upgradeable to 8GB. Furthermore, the MB40U is equipped with a 14.1-inch LED widescreen display that has a native resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels. The standard configuration also includes a 160GB HD drive but apparently the notebook can be customized to feature up to a 500GB HDD or up to a 512GB SSD.
CTL’s latest portable PC packs an Intel Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n adapter and a Bluetooth module. In addition, users can supposedly take advantage of three USB ports, an HDMI output, 3-in-1 card reader slot and two audio jacks. For video conferencing there is an integrated 1.3MP web camera.
The MB40U is now available with a 6-cell Lithium-ion battery that can presumably operate autonomously for about 5 hours and has a starting price of $449.
