The FlyBook VM series offers a unique stretching arm design that provides a better viewing experience than any other 12.1-inch display-based laptop computer. It has been designed with advanced ultra-low-voltage from Intel and rich peripherals, enabling road-warriors to do better presentations and to enjoy a superb user interface as well.

“FlyBook customers are looking for the latest technology and style,” said Michael Lee, VP Marketing for Dialogue Technology. “The integrated Sierra Wireless embedded module helps us to deliver a fast, reliable wireless connection in the small, stylish form our customers expect, and gives them the ability to stay in touch and keep the information they need at their fingertips wherever they go.”
