Reg Hardware is reporting that the Gateway E-100M is now shipping. The E-100M sports a similar CPU (Intel Core Solo U1300, Ultra Low Voltage (ULV), and unannounced by Intel) to the Fujitsu Q2010 that was just announced for the North American market. The E-100M weighs in at just over three pounds, sports a widescreen 12.1-inch display, and does not have an internal optical drive.
The E-100M represents a sort of milestone for Gateway – it’s Gateways’ first foray back into the ultraportable market after several years’ of not producing a small form factor in their notebook lineup.
Quoting Reg Hardware:
Gateway said it will shortly offer an alternative version of the E-100M aimed at the small businesses, consumers and students. The NX100X goes on sale next week to SMEs and to consumers on 11 May.
