    Santa Barbara 25 June 2002: PaceBlade Technology today announced its
    revolutionary PaceBook is now available in the United States.

    "We are very excited to be shipping into the most connected nation on
    earth," said Eric Djie, President of PaceBlade and chief designer of the
    PaceBook. "The flexibility of our 3IN1 system ensures simple ergonomic and
    need-driven solutions, and allows us to serve customers and industries that
    neither a traditional notebook nor a Tablet PC can effectively satisfy
    today."

    An entirely new concept in mobile computing, the PaceBook combines the
    functions of a notebook, LCD PC and tablet PC. It is the first notebook in
    the world to work in portrait mode, an application perfectly suited to
    reading eBooks or surfing the web.

    Extensive investment in human factors and marketing research has resulted
    in not only a stylish product, but the world's most ergonomic notebook.
    Featuring a wireless keyboard, the PaceBook for the first time allows
    people the decide how far they sit from their screen, offering them the
    freedom to find the most comfortable working position, curtailing problems
    related to Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI). With the addition of a special
    range of accessories, the PaceBook system is an evolutionary milestone in
    personal computing. The optional Desktop Stand gives the PaceBook the full
    functionality of a desktop computer. As a desktop replacement it takes the
    smallest footprint of any product in the market, and for the first time a
    PC can be a welcome addition to beautifully designed offices and homes.

    "We strive to provide people with products that make their leisure and work
    lives more comfortable, in terms of computing functionality and great
    design," added Mr Djie.

    Working with vertical markets, the PaceBook's flexible solutions are
    proving popular with professional industries as diverse as education and
    construction, and has proved of special interest to the medical community.

    "Doctors require more power than a PDA can offer, and their work demands
    mobility, so a traditional desktop computer is not enough," notes Mr Djie.
    "The PaceBook's touchscreen and variety of data input methods mean they can
    take notes easily during rounds, and simultaneously access prescription
    programs or patient record databases, for instance."

    To increase mobility and practicality, the PaceBook can easily be wall
    mounted, used on tripods, POS devices or in vehicles. It comes in a
    designer case and can be carried comfortably, thanks to a wide range of
    standard and customized carry straps. The PaceBook is upgradeable to
    connect to any wireless environment, including LAN, WAN or cellular.

    Specifications: The PaceBook includes a Transmeta Crusoe processor, 128MB
    SDRAM (upgradeable to 640MB), 20-30GB HDD, CD-ROM (or DVD, CD-RW), and a
    12.1" XGA TFT-LCD display with a touchscreen overlay. It comes with either
    Windows XP Home, XP Professional or Windows 2000. The PaceBook has full
    connectivity with USB, IEEE-1394, VGA, LAN, modem, and PCMCIA. A number of
    optional accessories will soon be released, including a port replicator and
    a CCD camera. An optional stand turns the PaceBook into a fully functional
    desktop PC used together with a full-size keyboard and mouse. The PaceBook
    DVD-ROM can be used while sitting in a car, boat or airplane because it
    does not require an external power source.

    The PaceBook is available in North America from the PaceBlade website, or
    through a fast-growing dealer network. The PaceBook will be shown at New
    York's PC Expo Wednesday and will be a highlight of its processor partner
    Transmeta's special event in the Rockefeller Center's Sea Grill Restaurant.

    Founded in 2000, PaceBlade has offices in the US, Europe, Taiwan and Japan.
    PaceBlade has won several industry awards in Europe and the US.

    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.
