This week Gateway lifted the curtain on its latest lightweight offering for mobile professionals - the FireAnt, more formally known as the Solo 3100 (check out the exclusive review next week).
The machine enjoys reasonably compact dimensions of 285mm by 215mm by 31mm and weighs a mere 2.3Kg in standard trim. What's more, the unit offers a good sized keyboard with nicely tactile keys and a rubber, nipple-style mouse pointer
Like many recently announced laptops, the FireAnt features a magnesium screen housing which, because of its superior strength, allows the casing to be thinner. The system's base specification is a 233MHz Pentium II, although a downgrade to a 233MHz MMX chip is available. It boasts 32Mb of SDRAM, a 2Gb Toshiba hard drive and a 12.1in TFT screen. The 3100 features a USB socket and a standard type II PC Card slot. A built-in 56K modem and 10Mbps network adaptor are both available as optional extras.
