Two PC manufacturers banking on Windows 98 being released without a hitch are Gateway and Sony, which have both announced sub-$1,000 PCs bundled with the operating system.
The Gateway offering, the E-1000 200, boasts networking features in a bid to attract business users. The spec includes a 200MHz Pentium MMX chip, 10/100Mbps Ethernet networking and, unlike the previous model in the range, comes with a floppy drive - a move away from the Net PC approach.
Sony is targeting the consumer with its $999 Vaio PC based on Intel?s Celeron processor. The models are 12inches high and boast 3D graphics, advanced audio capabilities and a built-in modem. For few hundred dollars more, consumers will get a 300MHz processor, 6.4Gbytes hard drive, a 5X DVD-Rom drive and Mpeg2 video.
