Main spec. Software Provider

Main spec. of Sharp Mebius PJ2-X4

Size B5 type
Weight 1.4kg
CPU Pentium2, 333MHz
Memory 128MB

Its compact size, capacity of HDD, built-in battery, and overseas guarantee attracted me compared with others; besides, the liquid crystal screen is very clear and quite wide (11.3, XGA) for this size. 12GB HDD is also very enough to install some space-eating software like MS Encarta or Globe without using any compressing  application software. One thing I am sorry is when I take all peripherals such as FDD and CDD, the total weight gets quite heavy.

Application software installed (except accessories of Win98)

AT&T globalnet
50 hours for 2,500 yen/m. More than 1500 AP and regional roaming fee is 100 yen/hr. I can't find any better providers than this to update the web site at every spot in the world.

A reasonable rental server in U.S. 50MB web space and unlimited w-mail account for $10.95 with web-mail service. I am going to update my site here through AT&T or internet cafe.
A Japanese famous provider. This will be used as the second provider. No fixed fee, full proportional rate.
