Breathtaking performance, very reliable execution of Windows XP®, this is a Centrino® model that for the first time is challenging the top of the line Pentium 4 single core CPUs in the 3.6-3.8GHz range and even some dual core desktops. Core Duo® is giving us an opportunity to build an economical line of laptops with extended range, using our newest idea: WXL™ Architecture.

To meet the rising demand for CompAmerica’s (http://www.compamerica.com) laptops, the company today announced immediate availability of its new economically priced, super performance GEMINI™ series Core Duo® Centrino® Mobil Laptops.

Starting at only $1299, yet sporting new Centrino Duo® (Dual Core Mobil Processor) CPUs with 2-MB L2 Cache (Intel Code Name: “Yonah”), CompAmerica indicated its benchmarks placed the performance of the new GEMINI™ in the same performance range as the Intel® Pentium® 4 based Orca™ 9098 series. Accordingly, CompAmerica calls the GEMINI™ “The Most Powerful Centrino Laptop” available.

Based on Intel’s newest 533/667 MHz front side bus CORE DUO® family Centrino Duo® CPU, the GEMINI™ squares off head to head with Apple’s recently demonstrated Tiger, and other upcoming laptops from other manufacturers. The new GEMINI provides enhanced DVD Playback and optional DVDRW burning, as well as an "performance optimized" Intel Wireless G/B/A network adapter that is complimented by its built in 10/100/1000 gigabit half/full duplex Ethernet card.

“Only: it’s real! We believe Microsoft® Windows XP® offers a richer solution than does Apple MacOS. It has more applications, more public familiarity, quite a bit lower price, and much more readily available support and service,” said company CEO Dr. Jack A. Shulman. Shulman, a 40 year veteran of the computer and electronics field, was involved in the very earliest efforts to develop the modern Personal Computer and Windows operating systems.

He added: “Breathtaking performance, very reliable execution of Windows XP®, this is a Centrino® model that for the first time is challenging the top of the line Pentium 4 single core CPUs in the 3.6-3.8GHz range and even some dual core desktops. Core Duo® is giving us an opportunity to build an economical line of laptops with extended range, using our newest idea: WXL™ Architecture.”

WXL™ combines Wide Screen LCD Display, with the Extended performance of a Dual Core CPU with 533/667 MHz Dual Channel Memory, and what CompAmerica calls “two ways light one way heavy” (light in weight, light on the pocketbook, and heavy on features such as WIFI, Advanced High Definition Audio, Interchangable - Swappable Optical Drive Bay, even a Port Replicator with Video Interface).

By offering WXL™, GEMINI™ 8320 Centrino laptops offer features in abundance and exemplary reliability. Running at a per CPU CORE clock rate of 2.16 GHz, the Gemini™ 8320 Centrino Duo® can keep pace with an Intel® Pentium® 4 Model 670 Processor: “and then some” added a company spokesperson.

Its DVD playback is said to be "flawless, less artifacted, and smoother than any prior mobil design". Its execution of Internet based multimedia: "simply COOL!" Its advanced Intel Centrino 945GM and integrated ICH-7 chipsets: "simply ELEGANT!"

“No longer expect average to fair performance from a Mobil Laptop with Extreme Deep Sleep to save battery life. You can wake up your work on the go with extraordinary performance!” says a CompAmerica brochure.

CompAmerica offers a wide family of different Laptops ranging from the 4.3 lb. 12.1” VENUS™ Centrino model to the 17” ORCA™ series 90FX2 Dual Core Athlon models dubbed “the most power laptops on Earth”. All CompAmerica® Laptops are available with up to a 3-year limited warranty. CompAmerica® is a long standing member of the Better Business Bureau and BBB Online.
