The usual suspects have announced they're building notebooks containing Intel's enhanced mobile PIIIs which arrived yesterday.

The roll of honour Intel is giving out features Acer, Compaq, Dell, Fujitsu, Gateway, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, NEC, Sony, and Toshiba.

Here's what's been announced so far:

IBM has kicked in with the Thinkpad T23 which is the first in the T series to support 802.11 wireless connectivity. It also boasts a security chip subsystem to help enhance user authentication.

The line marks the first appearance of IBM's 48GB Travelstar hard disk drives in Thinkpads.

The T23s promise more than 3 hours of battery life and are priced from $2,279 to $3,959.

HP has got the OmniBook 6100. The blurb says it can offer users up to five hours of operation on a single battery charge. There's 802.11 wireless connectivity, and the usual combinations of DVD and CD-ROM drives. Prices start at $2,899.

Sony has come up with the GR170K and GR150K Vaio units. The GR170K has got the 1GHz PIII-M, and the GR150K comes with the 866MHz PIII-M. They'll cost $2,999 and $2,599 respectively, they weigh 5.6lbs, and 6.3lbs with the removable CD-RW/DVD combo drive, and will be on sale in August.

Compaq is offering the PIII-Ms with its Presario 1700 line, but it's most excited about its Evo N200 which will be able to pack 'up to 8 hours of battery life'. It'll weigh less than 3lbs and be out later in the year. ®
