Keydata has been a major name
in the portable computer business as long as there has been a
portable computer business.
It was 1989, and the Age of Portable Computing had begun.
That's when Keydata began selling portables.
Our computers brought the latest in cutting-edge technology to
the market -- Gas Plasma Display "Lunchbox" models,
and portable CRT models. These Keydata computers were
excellent machines for their era, making it possible to put
most of the power -- and along with it, most of the weight --
of a desktop system at the end of your arm. They were big,
they were powerful . . . . and you had to be too, to carry
It was only a year later, in 1990, that portable computing
became far more portable. That was the year Keydata began
selling laptop computers. But another change was on its way.
As portable as a book: the Keynote
In June 1992, Keydata
introduced the first Keynote notebook computer. This sturdy,
hard-working 486SLC notebook would soon get good reviews from
the press, and enthusiastic endorsements from customers.
The Keynote was the first in a growing line of Keydata
notebooks, each new model bringing new levels of convenience
and power to portable computing. And each developed to meet
specific customer needs and take advantage of new technology.
Today, more than 200,000 Keydata portable and notebook
computers have been sold.
The right size
for the right response
Keydata is a company with one
focus: the portable market. It's a market that demands the
highest in portable computing power, storage, and
connectivity. We've developed innovative management,
production, and distribution solutions geared solely to that
Our accumulated portable computing experience is combined with
exceptionally efficient and flexible manufacturing processes.
We can implement the newest technology faster -- much faster
-- than most of our competitors, large or small. That also
means we are able to respond to market needs much faster.
Today, the scope of our market extends beyond North America:
we also deliver to Europe, the Middle East, Russia, and South
We know notebooks inside and out
One of the contributing reasons
to Keydata's growth, is the strength of our customer support.
Questions are answered, and problems are solved, fast.
Why? Certainly part of the reason is the fact that over a
third of our tech support and customer service team members
hold master's degrees. That means qualified support is there
when needed, not later, from people who know notebook
computers inside and out.
There are several important
reasons why Keydata's Keynote computers are especially popular
with Corporate and Government users: quality, performance,
support, and the ability to respond immediately. We carry an
inventory more than sufficient to meet virtually any order
without delays. That's why Keynotes are hard at work in many
Federal, State, and Municipal level government offices, and in
companies such as AT&T, McDonnell Douglas, Abbott
Laboratories and Merrill Lynch. You can order with confidence.
