Foreseeing the rapid penetration and growth of the domestic laptop market, HCL Infosystems Ltd India’s premier information enabling and leading ICT System Integration company today launched the HCL “Leaptop Series 39” here at Bangalore today. Designed for Indian conditions, where the ambient temperatures are higher and the surface temperature of laptops tend to become uncomfortable, the HCL Leaptop Series 39 is designed to achieve a lower temperature differential of below 6 degrees Centigrade on its palm rest surfaces.
Developed under its “Design for India” program, HCL brings three decades of experience in designing computing products for India, into the design of its Leaptop range of products. With excellent thermals and meeting the Energy star 4.0 compliance standard, the product starts at a price range of Rs. 39990/-. The HCL Leaptop Series 39 is based on Intel’s Centrino & Centrino2 Processor technology and comes in both Microsoft and Linux versions. On this occasion HCL also showcased its range of Leaptops, the Z35 series, the series 28 & 24 and its latest “MTV Edition”. Also showcased was India’s first Ultraportable range the “HCL MiLeap series” and a range of HCL accessories including the “Dictamail” and the “FM Companion”.
Commenting at the launch, Mr. George Paul, Executive Vice President, HCL Infosystems said “Over the past three decades, with our understanding and expertise of the Indian market, HCL has always been at the forefront of bringing in technological innovation in the country. We are committed to bring, cutting edge technology products designed for Indian conditions and have brought in a range of new categories that have transformed the computing industry in India. The launch of HCL Leaptop Series 39 is yet another step towards the ‘Design for India’ products strategy”
Addressing the launch, Mr. Rajendra Kumar, Executive Vice President, HCL Infosystems said “With the trend of computing devices moving towards notebooks we realized that there is a need for notebooks that are designed to meet the varied requirements and mode of usage of the Indian market. Among the various factors, one of the key parameters in the Indian context is the thermals and the temperature difference between the left and right palm rest surfaces of your notebook.
With re-engineering of the key components of a computing device into the much smaller form factor of today’s modern day notebooks, leads to concentration of heat generation. Therefore, at our HCL Labs and the HCL product engineering centre we are focused at designing a product with lower temperature difference across the surface of the laptop. Today it gives us immense pleasure to announce the launch of the Leaptop 39 series that have thermals that are within 6 deg Centigrade and can proudly attribute it as a product that is Distinctly Indian.”
The HCL Leaptop 39 series comes with a 14.1 inch wide screen and is powered by Intel’s Centrino & Centrino2 processor technology and has a battery backup of more than 4 hours. Compliant to the Energy Star 4.0 Category A certification, the HCL Leaptop Series 39 consumes less than 1.7W of energy in sleep mode and below 1W in stand-by mode and is optimized to reduce its power consumption.
Further these products are tested for special Indian conditions and undergo rigorous tests such as the HCL five feet drop test & the multiple environment stress tests, which test these laptops under extensive heat, humidity and voltage stress conditions. We are also proud to state that the complete range of HCL Leaptops including the Series 39 are fully RoHS compliant.
The HCL Leaptop series 39 is available in both Windows and Linux OS flavours and has IMR Imprint design finish adding glamour to its beauty.
Starting at a price range of Rs 39,900/- for the Centrino Model & Rs 42990/- for the Centrino2 range, the HCL Leaptop Series 39 is a powerful workhorse designed for India and backed by HCL’s award winning Support Services.
