Viglen Dossier LC

10th March 2000 at 00:00
A laptop computer ought to do most things a desktop machine will do; otherwise you would get something smaller and lighter. So what's the bottom line? A decent-sized, clear screen, full-size keyboard and connectivity for every kind of device you might neet to link to and for networks and the Internet.

Viglen is working hard to compete with established education suppliers and the results can already been seen in the design of its classroom PCs. Its fast Dossier LC (Celeron 433) offering for the government's Computers for Teachers scheme holds its own well with the competition. The screen is a good size (13-inch) ad sharp, the keyboard is firm and spacious with the now ubiquitous palm-rest with centred mouse-pad if you don't want to attach a mouse. It has a PC card modem and is Internet-ready. It also has on-site support and demo as part of the scheme.
