Gateway Tablet PC     

Speed and versatility

The Tablet PC combines the ease of pen-and-paper note taking with a powerful notebook computer.

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(6) 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(4) 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.(5)
