  16. Mar 22nd 2005 EmperorLinux Molecule Slashdotted (Again)
    The EmperorLinux Molecule was slashdotted this morning, as word of Sharp's upgraded AL3D continues to grow.

Several slashdotters mention the stir that the new Molecule caused at LinuxWorld in Boston last month.
  17. Mar 8th 2005 EmperorLinux Introduces the Molecule AL3D

    EmperorLinux introduces Sharp's next generation of 3D LCD laptops as the Molecule AL3D. Sharp's 3D LCD technology makes it possible to view 3D images without glasses; because the hard work is done by the LCD hardware, the 3D effect works under Linux. The well-equipped Molecule comes with an 1866 MHz Pentium-M, NVidia graphics, an 80 GB SATA hard drive, 1 GB of RAM, and a DVD+/-RW drive.

    The Molecule made quite a splash last month at LinuxWorld in Boston running a demo of the chemistry software PyMOL (kindly provided for us by DeLano Scientific).

Highlights include: a 1733-2133 MHz Pentium-M processor (the Dothan core with 533MHz FSB), 30-80 GB hard drive, DVD+/-RW, and NVidia Quadro or ATI Radeon graphics on the Rhino's 15.4" screen with X@1920x1200. (Click the Customize System button to see all the latest possible combinations.) The Rhino D800 will remain available for a limited time.
  19. Feb 21st 2005 LinuxWorld Expo Boston Wrap-Up
    The Emperor team has returned from their trek to the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in Boston last week. We spoke with a variety of people about what new laptops they'd like to see us offer, tips and tricks, and fascinating laptop features coming in the near future. Several people (including NewsForge, Groklaw, and OSNews) noted the upcoming successor to the Molecule. We enjoyed the chance to explore a new city and another opportunity to meet with customers past, present, and future!
  20. Feb 18th 2005 EmperorLinux Gazelle, SilverComet and Kiwi Model Upgrades
    Sony recently upgraded several systems in our product line. The Gazelle has made the jump to the Sony VAIO A2x0 series, the SilverComet has leapt to the Sony VAIO S2x0 series, and the Kiwi has moved on to the Sony VAIO T2x0 series. For the most part, this change means the availability of larger hard drives; please see the individual products' pages for details. Over the next few weeks, we'll slowly be phasing out the 1x0 series of these systems and phasing in their newer counterparts.
  21. Feb 14th 2005 LinuxWorld Expo This Week
    Most of our EmperorLinux staff will be out of the office this week, taking part in the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo held in Boston's Hynes Center.

If you'd like to drop by and visit our booth, use the Priority Code N0194 to register for your free Exhibit Hall pass by February 14, 2005.
  24. Jan 7th 2005 Hard Drives Break 100 GB Barrier
    The hard drives on the SilverComet and Gazelle have broken the 100 GB barrier, adding even larger drives to their already impressive feature sets.
  25. Jan 3rd 2005 Linux Distribution Updates for the New Year
    EmperorLinux is now supporting Fedora Core 3, Mandrake 10.1, and SuSE 9.2 on our systems. For those who prefer another distribution, Slackware 10 and Debian are also available, as are older versions of these updated distributions.
