The Register reports Gateway has started shipping its new ultraportable 12.1" Gateway E-100M notebook. This system weighs only 1.4kg (3.2lbs) and features the Core Solo U1300, a not yet announced processor from Intel.
The Core Solo U1300 first appeared on Intel roadmaps in November 2005 with a Q2 2006 debut.
The E-100M is based around a 12.1in, 1,280 x 800 widescreen display driven by the Intel chipset's GMA 950 graphics engine. It's powered by a single-core Intel Core Solo ultra-low voltage processor running at 1.06GHz and sports the chip maker's 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi adaptor, so it's a Centrino-class laptop.
