FIC to Showcase the Latest 14-inch Calpella Platform Basic Notebook in Intel’s Official Launch Event
Date: 2010/1/8
The latest 14-inch notebooks from FIC deliver optimal performance and power saving
Taipei, Taiwan, January 8, 2010 – First International Computer, Inc. (FIC), a world leader in the design and production of electronic devices, today unveiled their latest 14” Calpella basic notebook in Intel’s official launch event.

FIC offers two models under the specification of Intel Calpella platform. The model PCA40 and PCA41 are powered by the IntelR HM55 chipset, showcased IntelR Core i5 or Core i7 processors and a 14” wide LED Backlight screen.

Both models sharing the same industrial design and retain the same overall dimensions. The key differentiation between these two models is that PCA40 supports ATI Mobility Radeon HD4530 of comprising a DDR3 512MB VRAM while the PCA41 is integrated in IntelR Graphics Media Accelerator HD.

“The PCA40 equips with a switchable graphic engine that we call Hybrid Engine,” states Tiffany Wang, the product manager of FIC. “A Hybrid Engine system has both integrated and discrete graphics chip built into the same computer system. Using the switchable graphics allow users to optimize the best power management.” “Users can set it to run on discrete graphics when playing games, videos or change to integrated graphics mode for power saving when they don’t need much computing power.”

“As the Multi-touch technology begins to crystallize, we’ve synchronized FIC’s new coming products phase in this function,” states Tiffany Wang. “Finger gesture on the touch pad directly helps users interact with computer screen without using a mouse.”

FIC categorized its latest 14-inch notebook series into Mainstream (PCA41) and Performance (PCA40) segments. Both models employ full I/O interface, up to 8GB DDR3 memory, a 1.3M webcam, a Giga LAN, optional Bluetooth, 3.5G high transition speed and support WindowsR 7 or WindowsR Vista operating system.
