Windows NT 4 didn’t manage laptop computers correctly and efficiently.  The new Microsoft Windows 2000 operating support does!!!  It supports PCMCIA cards and recognize most of them (except of some MPEG PCMCIA card and some ‘exotic’ modem cards…).  It also displays the state or your batteries. More interesting, all your removable devices such as PCMCIA cards or USB devices are monitored in a small applet that takes place in the tray and you’ll be able to select your removable devices to stop or eject them. Sure the laptop ACPI/APM technology is correctly managed and It’ll help you to save your battery power. Now the operating system also integrates synchronization features for the laptops that have to be connected and disconnected from the network. If you mark one of your files or folders by ‘available offline’ laptop users will keep on its disk a local cache that contains these files. Obviously Windows 2000 supports the infrared technology that will make your desktop a little bit cleaner due to the cordless technology of the compliant IR devices.
