Gateway Core 2 Duo Laptops
A final but still very significant introduction of laptops using the mobile Core 2 Duo processor comes today courtesy of Gateway's new laptop line. Though its website has yet to update with the new models, the company today announced a series of new models to take advantage of the extra performance. All but its ultraportable NX100 series will see the Core 2 Duo in their lineup and start at 1.66GHz. A new line of M-series workstation laptops is making its debut at the same time: though little was made public in the announcement, the line will start with the 14-inch M255-E that uses a 1.83GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB of RAM, and 80GB of hard drive space. Other M versions will use processors between 1.83GHz and 2.16GHz. Gateway's new computers should be available starting August 31st for a $999 starting price.
