The Profile III has a good set of features. Its screen size
is 14.1″, which is the largest in its category. The display is a TFT,
unlike its entry-level cousin, which uses HPA. It uses an ATI Rage Pro display
card with 8 MB VRAM, which gives a maximum resolution of 1,600×1,200 with 32-bit

The
notebook is based on a PIII/500 MHz processor with 64 MB RAM. It gave a Business
Winstone score of 20.3 Winmarks, which is good compared to others in its
category. It gave a battery backup time of 2:30 hours but took 4:40 hours to
recharge the battery. The notebook has integrated audio, the sound of which is
rather tinny.

This notebook weighs 5.26 kgs with its travel bag and other
accessories. It has a built-in modem, and one PCMCIA slot for putting in
additional cards. It also has IR port for connectivity and an S-Video out socket
for projectors. The notebook’s keyboard layout takes a little time to get
familiar with, due to a few oddly-placed keys.
