IBM introduced today the ThinkPad 600E and 390E notebook PCs. The 600E uses a mobile Intel Pentium II processor at 400 MHz and a 10GB hard drive. Some models come with Asset ID wireless technology, which allows for tracking the computer, helping deter theft.
The 390E is a toned-down, less-expensive version at $1,899, compared with the 600E's price of $2,799 to $4,199. The 390E comes with a 4.8GB hard drive and a mobile Celeron processor at 366 MHz.
New graphics capabilities for the IntelliStation NT workstations were also announced. Some new models will also include dual monitors. The IBM IntelliStation E Pro, M Pro, and Z Pros use Intel's Pentium III and Pentium III Xeon microprocessors and Intel's 440BX chipset. Estimated prices range from $1829 to $4039.
