HP Introduces Pair Of 802.11g-Equipped Notebooks


Hewlett-Packard rolled out two 802.11g-equipped notebooks in its Presario line on Monday.

The two Compaq Presario 2100 and 2500 -- which were originally introduced in January, but with the slower 802.11b wireless -- now integrate the faster standard (which HP, and other companies, call 54g, a bone to the fact that 802.11g has yet to be formally ratified).

The Presario 2500 features Pentium 4 processors running at up to 2.8 GHz, while the 2100 boasts Celeron and Pentium-M chips. Prices for the 54g-enabled 2500 start at $1,094 after a $100 rebate; the Presario 2110 starts at $819.

Some analysts have cautioned against deploying 802.11g hardware before the end of the year, citing the un-ratified standard and uncertified products.
