Gateway-tabletGateway's announced a widescreen format Tablet PC - cool design, and it has dedicated ATI graphics, which should be nice in the Vista world of Aero Glass. PC Magazine has a review here:

"The CX200 is a workhorse: It's loaded with the fastest Pentium M (770) processor currently available, 1GB of RAM, and the ATI Mobility Radeon X600 graphics chipset. Unfortunately, the system couldn't run our SYSmark 2004 SE and MobileMark 2005 benchmark tests because of the tests' limitations, but other systems with this type of configuration perform very well on day-to-day computing tasks. Both the Doom 3 and Splinter Cell games ran smoothly. The 3DMark 2005 scores were very respectable at 996 (1,024-by-768), something rarely seen on a tablet..."

Interesting, mostly for the great price - supposed to be around $1000. I tried to spec one out, to see what you get for that price level, but they don't have it as a customizable item on their site yet - just a number to call if you want to "pre-order". Welcome to 1996. ;-)

I'm curious how it can be a widescreen aspect ratio display with a 4:3 resolution of 1024x768. Oh, and boo to Gateway for introducing Yet Another 14" Tablet PC with low 1024x768 resolution. :-P
