Dell to build wireless LANs into Notebooks

Library Systems Newsletter [November 2000]

Dell has announced it is following IBM's lead in building wireless LANs into some of its notebook PC models.

The models will not only have antennae but also wireless modem connections when these become available from Dell's suppliers. Both companies are committed to the IEEE 802.11B wireless network standard operating in the 2.4-GHz frequency range. Building in these features will relieve users of the need to buy and install peripheral devices, -which will reduce the cost to users by over $100 to about $75. Initially, the features will be built-in only on selected models costing more than $2,500.
