Sharp launches Sharp Kitty Transmeta notebook

Sharp Electronics will release a notebook this month powered by Transmeta's Crusoe processor.

The notebook, Mebius Muramasa PC-MM1-H1W, codenamed Sharp Kitty,is aimed at businesses and small office/home office (SOHO) users.

Based on Transmeta's TM5800 Crusoe chip running at 867MHz, the notebook will come with Microsoft's Windows XP Home Edition and contain a 15Gbyte hard drive.

It will also include 256Mbytes of Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic RAM (DDR-SDRAM), two universal serial bus (USB) 1.1 ports, one PC Card slot, a built-in 802.11b wireless network adapter and a 10.4in extended graphics array (XGA) screen.

A docking feature will allow users to connect the notebook to a second PC and synchronise storage data while the system is in hibernate or stand-by mode.

Sharp Kitty is scheduled to be available in stores in Japan from 26 October and will cost around ¥170,000 (£880). The notebook will be released in the US early next year.
