Hardware Description

he first thing you notice about the new Compaq Aero 2100 is its silver case. It strikes you as futuristic and even Aero dynamic. But the real advance in this color-screen Palm-size PC is its high-reflective Thin Film Transistor (HR-TFT) color screen. If youve ever tried to use a handheld device under less than optimal lighting conditions, you will really appreciate this new Aero. Turn it on outdoors, in bright sunlight, (say, in your car, or on the golf course), and the screen does not washout; in fact, it becomes more readable, and uses less battery power! If you do not have sufficient ambient light, a two-level front light will give you a picture as pretty as any portable device available today.
