Gateway CX2600 Series Convertible Notebooks


Gateway launched a new family of convertible notebooks (that's Tablet PCs to the rest of us) that are aimed to be more affordable and accessible to the general public. The CX2600 Series notebooks will have a 14" display, five hours of battery life, a Pentium M processor, a 5-in-1 card reader, 3 USB ports, 1 IEEE 1394/Firewire port, and WiFi, of course. As the name implies, the display swivels out to reveal a keyboard, and when in closed position, you can use a pen to take notes on the touch-sensor screen. I'm still not convinced that the tablet PC will ever catch on with the masses, but I'll admit that this notebook does look pretty sweet. And you can snatch one up for under $1,400—which is pretty good for a tablet PC.
