Gateway rolls super-thin tablet PC for home, school

Gateway E-155C Tablet

Gateway this morning made an aggressive push back into tablet PCs and launched the E-155C. This is one of the thinnest and lightest complete tablets ever, the company says: despite a dual-action, 12-inch display and a built-in DVD/CD-RW or DVD-RW drive, the PC measures just under 1.2 inches thick and weighs a manageable 4.5 pounds. The E-155C is also a harbinger of faster ultraportables with a 1.06GHz Core 2 Duo ULV and headroom for up to 4GB of RAM. A Wacom-made stylus and a fingerprint reader help with the drawing and security sought after by Gateway's initial audience of schools and office workers.

A base system sells today for $1,850 with 1GB of RAM and a 60GB hard drive. Beginning in May, Gateway says it will also offer a version dubbed the C-120X for mainstream users at a relatively lower $1,500, though the company hasn't yet indicated the differences between this and today's E-155C model.

    misleading

    That's not what I call "superthin". It sounds like it's no smaller than a plain old 12" AlBook. Ohhh, it's a tablet though. Big deal. Isn't one of the attractions of the tablet form factor is that it can be smaller?
