Mitsubishi Pedion review

If you’re worried about the Pedion’s connectivity, then you’ll be pleased to know that Mitsubishi supplies a Multimedia Pack in the box. More often known as a docking station, the Multimedia Pack slips onto the bottom of the Pedion and has a 20-speed CD-ROM, floppy drive, stereo speakers, dual-PS/2, parallel, serial, VGA and USB ports, plus headphone and microphone sockets. In addition, the Multimedia Pack retains the svelte dimensions of the Pedion, and is only 4mm taller at 22mm – so together the combined unit is still smaller than many other notebooks of the same specification. One small niggle is that there are no on-board network connections; a serious omission.

Mitsubishi Pedion review

So far, it’s all been good news. There are still some unknown factors with the Pedion, though – the most obvious being its benchmark performance, the machine’s battery life and a final price. With top-notch components inside you’d expect the

Pedion to be quick, but of course that will drain the battery. Today, Mitsubishi quotes a 90-minute life for the on-board lithium ion: battery, increasing to seven hours with an optional battery pack.

We’ll be testing these claims, and the performance of the Pedion, when we see a production machine – hopefully before June. As for the price, it looks unsurprisingly steep at around £3,000.

For now, we can only leave you with a taste of things to come, and a prediction: if the Mitsubishi Pedion is anything to go by, the battle for the ultra-portable market is about to enter a new phase.
