Tarsus Technologies has announced a renewed thrust into the government sector with Samsung’s X360 and X460 notebook range, since it believes that these units’ high technical specifications, lightweight designs and superior build quality are just what public sector departments require.
“Government is one of the most demanding technology buyers in existence,” says Levina de Matos, Samsung product manager at Tarsus, “and as such is constantly on the lookout for infrastructural elements that are capable of lasting well in excess of three years, both by virtue of their high-performance components and their overall build-quality,” she explains.
“Samsung’s X series notebooks are therefore the perfect choice for the public sector,” she adds.
Starting with the 13.3” X360, de Matos says this compact notebook packs all the punch of a far larger unit into an extremely portable mobile companion that workers on the move can rely on for a full day’s productivity.
“The X360 boasts with an ultra-powerful and removable 6-cell battery, a power-efficient Intel Centrino 2 processor, a bright and power-saving 13.3” LED screen, and an option for a 128GB Solid State Drive.
“All of these components significantly enhance the unit’s performance, yet weigh less and use far less power, and in doing so enable up to 10 hours of continuous use on battery power,” she says.
“These features are rounded out with a powerful and secure biometric fingerprint authentication system and a trusted platform module (TPM), so public sector workers’ valuable information will remain safe from prying eyes, without the need for them to remember any passwords,” she explains.
“In total, the X360 configured with all of these high performing, power-conscious components weighs in at 1.29 kilograms – nothing short of remarkable,” she adds.
Looking at the slightly larger unit in the range, de Matos says the X460 shares most of the X360 design features, but is differentiated by its larger screen, a dedicated graphics card and a built-in optical drive – features that make this unit more suited to the graphics professionals, researchers and other power users within public sector.
“All of this culminates in a veritable mobile powerhouse that weighs a mere 1.9kg and gives users in excess of five hours’ unplugged productivity,” de Matos says.
Thus far, de Matos says that Tarsus has received good interest from a number of government departments and is looking forward to seeing how these units perform at proof of concept stage.
“We’re convinced that Samsung’s X series notebooks have the right stuff for the government market and are certain public sector buyers will agree with this sentiment over the coming year,” she concludes.
