BenQ Launches Joybook R42 Series

BenQ today expanded its Joybook lineup with the new Joybook R42 Series, aimed at providing favorable cost-performance notebook solutions to value-conscious consumers. The Joybook R42 features the Intel Core 2 Duo Processor and VIA Chrome9 HC DX9 IGP graphic chipset. Featuring the Windows Vista operating system it comes bundled with a 60-day free trial version of Microsoft Office Professional 2007.

The Joybook R42 series incorporates BenQ’s exclusive UltraVivid technology. The UltraVivid technology employs DBEF (Display Brilliance Enhancement Film), which raises the brightness of the screen. A low-reflectivity coating on the screen surface also helps to aggregate emitted light to further enhance brightness.

The Joybook R42 features a sophisticated frontal air-intake ventilation cooling system that brings in air from the front of the unit and then vents it out on the sides ensuring effective cooling for major heat-producing chips inside the notebook. The Joybook R42 is designed to meet the highest quality; the notebook has passed through a series of rigorous standard tests including scratch resistance test, pressure test, and hinge test. In addition, the R42 also comes equipped with a built-in Bluetooth V2.0+EDR function (selected models).
