The Tokyo company began offering notebook PCs based on Transmeta's low-power processors in October 2000 and launched its previous machine, the 220TX, in March 2001. Since March 2002 Hitachi has not had any Crusoe-processor based notebook computers.
The Flora 210W computer is a sub-notebook computer that weighs 950g. It has 256Mbytes of memory, a 15Gbyte hard disk drive, a 10.4in (TFT) thin film transistor and LCD, an Ethernet port and a selection of Wireless LAN (IEEE1394.11b) or Personal Handyphone System (PHS) adapter.
The machine can also be inserted into a cradle and accessed as an external hard disk drive from a desktop personal computer when connected by the cradle's USB 2.0 connection.
The Flora 210W will go on sale in Japan on 28 February and is priced at ¥228,000 (£1,170).
