Integrated Biometric Security Hardware
Biometric security hardware has arrived at a new level--factory integration. Compaq and Acer both offer new notebook models that feature biometric fingerprint scanners. If executed properly, fingerprint scanning becomes the ultimate password because fingerprints are unique and you can't forget them. Compaq's Armada E500 and Acer's TravelMate 739TLV both position their integrated fingerprint scanners on the flat case area near the touch pad pointing device. Once configured to your fingerprints, no one else can use your notebook.
