Gateway unwires two thin-and-light Laptops

For business customers ready to standardize on mobile PC technology, both the Gateway 200 notebook PC and Gateway Tablet PC provide the long battery life, ultra-portability and wireless connectivity on-the-go professionals need. And with form factors less than one inch thin, large displays and Intel Centrino technology, customers can get the best of both worlds – a portable PC with the power and reliability of a desktop.

“The Gateway 200 and Gateway Tablet PC with Intel Centrino Technology combine everything mobile PC users want and need – in two very different form factors – for a range of uses,” said Mike Stinson, vice president and GM, mobile products, Gateway, Inc. “Mobile professionals and consumers will appreciate the power and wireless connectivity of the Gateway 200, while educators, mobile field workers and presenters who need to write directly on the display will appreciate the flexibility of the Gateway Tablet PC.”

The Gateway 200 combines the features that make it the ultimate mobile PC – powerful technology in a small form factor. Equipped with Intel Centrino mobile technology, the Gateway 200 mobile PC includes mobile-optimized Intel Pentium-M® processors as well as integrated WiFi 802.11b wireless capability. This enables
 
connectivity in offices, homes, airports, convention centers and other places equipped with wireless networks. The notebook delivers more than four hours of battery life on a single charge of the six-cell battery, a huge benefit to those taking advantage of wireless computing.

The 4.3-pound, one-inch-thin Gateway 200 is ideal for highly mobile professionals and savvy consumers who want a PC light enough to take with them everywhere, yet powerful enough to act as their primary PC. The Gateway 200’s large, 14.1-inch high resolution XGA TFT display is perfect for sales and marketing professionals who use their PCs for viewing presentations and office software. The vibrant display is made even clearer thanks to Intel® Extreme Graphics with up to 64MB DVMT video memory.

A range of computer users can utilize the feature-rich Gateway 200 notebook for work and productivity. SOHO workers needing the latest technology in a small space will appreciate the integrated design of the Gateway 200 with a built-in DVD burner for their multimedia needs. The Gateway 200 is also a great choice for educational institutions and students needing a wireless-ready system for connecting to a network, as well as savvy consumers who want a power PC with integrated wireless in an easy-to-transport form factor.

The Gateway 200 offers configuration flexibility, with a choice of Intel Pentium-M processors at either 1.4GHz or 1.6GHz; optical drives including DVD-R/-RW, combo CD-RW/DVD-ROM, or CD-ROM; from 20GB to 60GB hard drives(4); and 256MB to 1024MB of PC2100 266MHz DDR memory. The new PC also features the latest multimedia ports, including one IEEE 1394 and two USB 2.0 ports, for connecting external devices such as MP3 players, data projectors and digital camcorders.

The Gateway 200 is priced ranging from $1,599 to $1,999.

Beginning tomorrow, June 12, Gateway delivers the new Gateway Tablet PC, which now includes Intel Centrino technology for enhanced mobile performance and wireless computing. Businesses can write directly on the display of the Gateway Tablet PC – combining the simplicity of a pad of paper with the power of a high-performance mobile PC. The Gateway Tablet PC is the ideal mobile computing platform for professionals who need to use their PC while moving throughout their workplace, such
 
as educational administrators visiting classrooms, doctors and nurses making rounds in hospitals, and site managers in a warehouse or manufacturing facility.

Measuring less than one inch thin and weighing only three pounds, the Gateway Tablet PC boasts a large 12.1-inch XGA TFT display that’s easy to view and use. Integrated WiFi 802.11b wireless connectivity ensures a reliable remote connection, while integrated V.92 56K Modem and 10/100 Ethernet provide direct connectivity to the network when working in the office or remotely.

The Gateway Tablet PC features the Intel Pentium-M Ultra Low Volt processor 1.0GHz, 256MB DDR SDRAM memory expandable to 1024MB, 40GB hard disk drive, and Integrated Intel® Dynamic Video Memory Graphics. The Gateway Tablet PC also provides the full functionality of a notebook PC with the latest multimedia and I/O ports, including IEEE 1394 and two USB 2.0 ports, for a fast connection to external devices.

Utilizing Microsoft® Windows® XP Tablet PC Edition, the Gateway Tablet PC is available with all the supporting peripherals that make it a complete solution, including integrated Intel Centrino WiFi 802.11b wireless, an optional FlexDock desktop docking station, two digitizer pens, a mobile keyboard with touchpad, and an optional external DVD/CD-RW combo drive. The price for the Gateway Tablet PC with Intel Centrino technology starts at $2,399.

Gateway supports the Gateway 200 and Gateway Tablet PC with a standard one-year limited warranty.
