introduced three new eMachines notebooks — the M2352, M6810 and M6811 — for
the back-to-school season. The new notebooks will be available at leading

“Our new line of eMachines notebooks hits upon two of the hottest trends
in notebooks — wireless connectivity and widescreen displays,” said Ed
Fisher, Gateway’s senior vice president of product planning. “With all the
new WiFi hot spots, people have realized that wireless is a great way to stay
connected and increase productivity. And crisp, clear widescreen displays
make using an eMachines notebook for work or fun all the more enjoyable.”
The connectivity features of the new eMachines notebooks make surfing the
Internet and checking email fast and easy. The three notebooks come standard
with integrated wireless 802.11g for connectivity at hotels, convention
centers, college campuses and at home. The latest 802.11g WiFi technology
delivers a fast wireless connection and is backward compatible with existing
802.11b WiFi networks. The systems also come standard with an integrated
V.92 modem and 10/100 Ethernet.
The impressive high-resolution WXGA 15.4-inch widescreen display shows
data in a letterbox format — great for viewing large word processing or
spreadsheet files, as well as viewing digital photos and web pages. The
vibrant widescreen displays are also great for watching popular DVD movies.
The new line of eMachines notebook PCs for the back-to-school season
delivers the latest technology for an all-around great mobile computing
experience. The systems boast Mobile AMD Athlon processors, combo drives or
DVD burners, 6-in-1 memory card readers, large hard drives and ample memory.
