The Gateway E-100Mb is a very lightweight (3.15 pounds) notebook that is using a new Intel Core Solo ULV CPU, the U1300 (1.06GHz), that no other manufacturer is currently using, and which Intel hasn’t mentioned as shipping before now. While not as fast as other CPUs in the Intel Centrino/Core lineup, it promises a much longer battery life.
