Gateway Reveals 11.6" Ultraportable With Core i5 Processor
Now, Gateway is looking to revive the high-end 11.6" machine with the EC19C-A52C/S laptop. It's a sleek new ultraportable that pulls no punches, and it's not afraid of charging a lot despite a wealth of netbook options being available as well.
There's a 1.33GHz Core i5-470UM (dual-core) processor, an 11.6" panel with a 1366x768 resolution, 2GB of memory, a 320GB hard drive, VGA and HDMI outputs, an integrated Ethernet port, 1.3MP webcam, 4-in-1 card reader, Wi-Fi, Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), Bluetooth 3.0 and a 6-cell battery. The machine will ship first in Japan for around $775, though the extra cash over a netbook definitely gets you a more powerful CPU and more expensive extras like BT 3.0. There's no word on the machine shipping elsewhere, but it should make its way over soon.
