X2 Launches Chic and Lightweight Stylebook™ 4000 With New Visual Configurator™ Feature on Website

Coordinate Laptop Bags to Match 14" Widescreen Sub 5-Pound Notebooks via an Interactive Customizable Configuration Option Available Online

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 19, 2005 -- X2 Corporation, a global manufacturer and direct marketer of digital lifestyle products, today announces the StyleBook™ 4000 series, a new notebook series in its designer Stylebook line of notebooks specifically marketed for women. The Stylebook 4000 comes in chic designs and is available in elegant Piano White and Duotone Pink/White finishes and includes a faux-croc color-coordinated portfolio bag for easy carrying with a fashionable look. Unlike its sibling, the 4000 model sports a larger 14" Widescreen LCD Display for easy viewing of images, movies, games, and more making the Stylebook a complete package of style, lightweight-portability, and performance.

X2 takes hi-tech fashion one step further by launching the easy-to-use, interactive Stylebook Visual Configurator™. The Visual Configurator, featured at www.stylebook.com, allows users to go online to personalize their notebooks by choosing colors and coordinating laptop bags coming in Microfiber, Faux Croc, Leather and Suede materials. The bags look nothing like traditional notebook bags and virtually hide the fact that there is even a notebook in it, yet each bag has a built-in protective compartment to store the StyleBook. Not only are the bags fashionable and stylish, they are also extremely functional with several pockets for storage such as separate makeup and mobile phone compartments, eliminating the hassle of the constant two bag shuffle.

The StyleBook 4000 is the perfect companion for the working woman on the go. Despite its looks and weight, the StyleBook comes with heavyweight features. The unit includes Intel's latest Pentium M or Celeron M low-power mobile processor, up to 1GB of DDR memory, up to a 100GB hard drive, 802.11b+g Wi-Fi wireless networking, 10/100 Fast Ethernet and a DVD/CD-RW Recordable Combo or DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Recordable optical drive, all in a compact, easy to carry package.

It comes with a built-in USB 2.0 and IEEE 1394 Firewire ports for easy connectivity and transfer of data from any digital device. The StyleBook 4000 also has a Type II PCMCIA slot for easy expansion. Unlike other notebooks its size, the StyleBook 4000 also features a full-size keyboard that is surprisingly easy to type on.

"The new interactive website fulfills our goal to give customers an easy way of not only customizing the color and style of their notebook but also coordinating it with various matching laptop bags," says Rex Wong, CEO of X2. "Since the launch of the 2000 series we have seen a dramatic interest in the Stylebook line of designer lightweight super-thin notebooks, proving the demand for a merge of function and fashion in the CE industry."

The Stylebook series starts at $1,299 and up depending upon configuration. They will be available at leading retailers and e-tailers, which will be announced shortly, and directly at its website at www.stylebook.com.
