The C-Series is a line of notebook computers with convertible tablet PC form factors manufactured by Gateway, Inc. It replaced the CX series convertible tablet in Gateway's lineup.

The flagship product in the C-Series, the C-140, was released on June 28, 2007. The 14-inch notebook utilizes Intel Core Duo processors, with optional discrete ATI graphics solutions. C-Series notebooks are convertible tablet PCs, meaning that they have the shape of a traditional notebook computer while possessing the ability to have their screens rotated through 180 degrees, and laid flat against the keyboard, essentially converting the notebook into a slate-form factor tablet PC.

As of the beginning of February 2007 the C-Series line includes only the low-priced C-140S and the higher-end C-141. Discontinued models include the C-140X and C-140XL. Models for sale to small business customers carry the S-7235 designation, while the product is sold to the educational market as the E-295C. Another member of the C-Series which is currently unavailable from Gateway is the C-120, a similar design to the C-140, but featuring a 12-inch, rather than 14-inch screen.

C-Series models purchased through Gateway's online store offer few possibilities or customization, a move which allows for more aggressive pricing by sacrficing the ability to custom-build a system that customers are used to. Faster processors and a variety of different configurations are available through MPC, which purchased Gateway, Inc.'s Professional Services Unit business line on September 5, 2007. C-140s sold through MPC carry the E-295C designation.

Overview (C-140)[edit]

The C-140/E-295C/S-7235 (henceforth referred to as the "C-140") features a widescreen 14.1" LCD display ith a 1280x768 resolution. This display features a Wacom Penabled touchscreen with an active digitizer, allowing the user to use an included electromagnetic stylus pen to interact with the computer, through handwriting recognition or using the pen as a replacement for a standard computer mouse or touchpad. Input and output ports include VGA, built-in Ethernet, 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth capability, three USB ports, one Firewire 400 port, and a proprietary Gateway port for connecting to a docking station. The notebook also possesses a "5-in-1" memory card reader (which can access Secure Digital, Memory Stick, and xD Picture Card, among others), as well as a single PCMCIA Type II Cardbus PC Card slot. The chassis incorporates a Synaptics touchpad, an integrated microphone, and provides biometric security in the form of a fingerprint reader. The C-140's optical drive is removable and is replaceable with a modular battery (although this product is now largely discontinued); the drive is capable of reading and writing to most popular forms of DVD and CD-ROM media. The laptop has a single hard disk bay, and two available slots for connecting RAM memory boards (no memory is hard-wired to the motherboard). A PCI-Express slot is available for future expansion. The C-140's battery extends out beyond the rear edge of the computer, acting as a handgrip when the computer is in slate-tablet mode; a 6-cell battery is included, while heavier 8-cell and physically larger 12-cell batteries are also available.

The C-140 comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Windows Vista, which includes the rudimentary Microsoft Works productivity suite, Windows Media Player 11, and Internet Explorer 7.
