Gateway is to offer a 2.2GHz Pentium 4-M processor from Intel in three of its 600 series laptops from next Monday (23 September).

The mobile processor will be offered in three configurations of the 600L, 600X, and 600XL notebooks, which were announced in April. The price of Intel's existing mobile clock-speed leader, the 2.0GHz Mobile Pentium 4-M, was cut by nearly half two weeks ago, usually a sign that a chipmaker is planning to introduce a new processor.

The upgraded 600L notebook will come with the 2.2GHz chip, 256Mbytes of memory, a 30Gbyte hard drive, and a CD-RW (CD-rewriteable) drive for a list price of $2,099 (£1,359).

The 600X, which adds a DVD/CD-RW combination drive to the above specifications, will sell for $2,299 (£1,488). The 600XL will come with the processor, 512Mbytes of memory, a 40Gbyte hard drive, the DVD/CD-RW combination drive, and integrated 802.11b wireless networking for a list price of $2,749 (£1,780).
