Gateway today announced the Gateway(R) M460 series notebook PC, a new
highly-scalable, performance- oriented notebook that delivers battery life up to
ten plus hours(1), which is unprecedented in its class. The notebook is ideal
for professional customers, including businesses, educational institutions and
government agencies.

The Gateway M460 notebook was designed to provide maximum battery life and
the widest range of advanced battery options. It provides from four to seven
hours of battery life on a single charge with one of the primary 6-cell, 8-cell
and 12-cell Lithium Ion batteries(1). Also, the notebook has a modular hot-swap
bay, so an optional modular 6-cell battery can be used with the 12-cell primary
battery to achieve up to ten plus hours of battery life for all-day
computing(1). When combined with the notebook’s thin-and-light design —
starting weight is less than six pounds and it measures as little as 1.31
inches(2) thin — the battery life and other features make the Gateway M460 the
obvious choice for professionals looking for a powerful, portable PC.

The Gateway M460 can be customized with a wide range of features, including
displays, processors, memory, hard drives and optical drives, so each
organization can choose the configurations that best fit their needs. As a
result, it can be configured to meet almost any budget or performance
specification. This flexibility saves IT departments’ time and money by letting
them standardize on a single notebook platform, regardless of the varied
end-user requirements. Further protecting Gateway customers’ investment, the
Gateway M460 promises image stability and a long managed life cycle like its
predecessors, the Gateway M405 and Gateway 450.

"The Gateway M460 addresses professional organizations’ needs for a flexible,
powerful notebook," said Greg Memo, Gateway’s senior vice president, products &
operations. "This single platform can be customized for use in a range of
environments, making it easier for IT departments to manage. It also provides
investment protection thanks to its new powerful, industry-standard technology
and long life cycle."

Based on the new Intel(R) 915 chipset, and available with high performance
Intel(R) Centrino(R) mobile technology, the Gateway M460 delivers a multitude of
benefits for customers. The M460 supports the latest Intel Pentium-M and Intel
Celeron-M processors for optimized mobile performance. It also utilizes PCI
Express, which provides faster performance and improved graphics. DDR2 memory
further improves system performance.

The Gateway M460 incorporates a range of options that enable it to scale to meet
a range of requirements. The notebook is offered with either a 15.4-inch
widescreen display, which is ideal for departments such as accounting or
graphics design, or a 15-inch standard display, for employees undertaking
general computing tasks. The modular hot-swap bay supports removable optical
drives, a second hard drive, a second battery or floppy drive.

Gateway customers can use the PC’s advanced connectivity features to work in the
office, classroom, at home or on the road. The Gateway M460 delivers improved
support for wireless security and the ability to connect to a variety of
standard networks. The notebook offers the latest in wireless computing
technology with Intel Pro Wireless LAN (802.11b/g and 802.11a/b/g) options. The
notebook is also equipped with Gigabit Ethernet to ensure the fastest possible
network connection. For a convenient connection in the office, an optional
docking solution is available to support the M460.

Incorporating the new thin-and-light industrial design that was unveiled with
the Gateway M210 in late 2004, the new Gateway M460 is stylish and sleek. In
addition to sharing the same look and feel, Gateway designed the M460 to utilize
a new line of common batteries, AC adapters and docking solutions that will
support other Gateway notebooks for the professional market. As a result, IT
departments can stock fewer replacement parts, since they are used across
multiple notebook platforms.

"The new sleek design and professional-oriented features make this a notebook
platform that many organizations should consider," said Rob Enderle, principal
analyst, The Enderle Group. "Its combination of display options, docking
capabilities, advanced battery options, platform stability and shared components
with other Gateway notebooks makes it a compelling choice for businesses and
institutions."
