by Reads (6,162)

Thanks to one of our forum members, we reported on Gateway’s newest Tablet PC, the E-295C, last week. Now, we have official word from Gateway that the E-295C is available. The E-295C is focused more toward business users and the education sector, but Gateway will also offer a version of the product for home and home office customers, which will be named the C-140.

The E-295C includes a Wacom pen and digitizer, an optional finger print reader, next generation graphics from ATI, a 14-inch widescreen display and the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processor and chipset. It seems many colleges and universities have already jumped on board and partnered with Gateway to bring the E-295C to many of their engineering and nursing programs.

Some specs for the E-295C Tablet PC:

  • Core 2 Duo T7100 1.8GHz, T7300 2GHz, T7500 2.2GHz or T7700 2.4 GHz processors
  • 2GB – 4GB DDR2 SDRAM
  • 60GB – 120GB hard drive
  • Intel 965GM or ATI Radeon X2300 HD graphics
  • 14" WXGA TFT Active Matrix display (1280 x 768)
  • Wacom and touchscreen capabilities
  • Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 ABG 802.11a/b/g Mini-card
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • Removable 8 and 12-cell batteries and a modular 6-cell battery
  • 3 x USB 2.0 Ports
  • VGA Port with locking screws
  • Type II PC Card Bus Slot
  • IEEE 1394 (4-pin)
  • 7-in-1 Digital Card Reader (xD, MMC, SD, MS, MSP, miniSD and RS-MMC)
  • Microphone jack and headphone jack
  • R-J11 and RJ-45

These aren’t the only specs either. The E-295C can be configured pretty much to your liking. There is a lot of features and options available that I am sure will fit any user’s needs and according to Gateway it can have up to a 10.5 hour battery life. So, if you are looking for a good priced 14-inch Tablet, this may be your best bet. Stay tuned for our upcoming review of the E-295C for a hands-on look.
