The new Sahara series is completely redesigned for 2007 and includes three models, which share the same sleek exterior styling, technology platform, I/O feature set and full range of optional accessories.

The three different Sahara Slate PC models include the i412T, the i440T and the i440D. The i412T is the entry level passive resistive touch screen model featuring a lower power, lower cost Intel Celeron M ULV 423 processor and it comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Microsoft Windows Vista Business or Linux.
The i440T Tablet is a more powerful touch screen solution that features an Intel Core Duo LV L2500 processor and it has the same OS choices. In fact the i440T is the most powerful slate style touch screen Tablet PC currently available.
At the top of the line is the i440D Tablet, which is powered by the Intel Core Duo LV L2500 processor. It also features a new input screen that converts from a pressure-sensitive active digitizer to a resistive touch screen at the push of a button. You can choose from Windows XP Tablet Edition 2005, Linux or the new Windows Vista Business as your OS.
