The Gateway E155C “Thin & Light Convertible” (Gateway’s term) has been announced, with the official product page going live. It starts at $1849 (USD) and weighs in at 4.5 – 5 pounds depending on battery size (4 to 8 cell batteries available).
It has a 12.1-inch widescreen display with an “Anti-reflection polarizer for â€œsun-light readability” and is powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo Ultra Low Voltage CPU (ULV). It comes with Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition or Vista. Made with a magnesium casing and including an internal optical drive, it’s one of the more reasonably priced “convertibles” around, seamlessly switching from a laptop to a Tablet PC form factor. It’s also Gateway’s smallest Tablet PC/Laptop combo yet.
It appears to be available now.
