Gateway still makes computers, and the company actually has a pair of notebooks coming out that offer 10-point touch screens. What’s more, the machines are surprisingly affordable--the Gateway LT41P starts at just $329.99, and the NV570P is $449.99. The LT41P is a small laptop with a 10.1-inch display (1366x768) running an Intel Celeron processor and Intel HD integrated graphics. There’s a 500GB hard drive on board along with 2GB of RAM, and for a nice value-add you get Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 Edition thrown in for free. Gateway LT41P The larger NV570P offers a 15.6-inch... Read more...
If you’re feeling nostalgic (or just want to save a buck), you can still buy a Gateway computer; Acer snapped up the brand a few years back and is still producing PCs under the label. The latest round of Gateways is nigh, and the lineup features both notebooks and desktops, including an AIO. There are two Gateway NE notebooks in the family--a 15.6-inch model and a 17.3-incher. Buyers can configure them accordingly, but the lowest-end model starts at $379.99. A 15.6-inch NE52204u with a quad-core AMD A4-5000 APU, 8GB of DDR3L memory, and a 500GB hard drive (5400 RPM) costs $399.99, while a... Read more...
Remember eMachines? The company was founded in 1998, the same year Saving Private Ryan and A Bug's Life hit the big screen. For those of you who weren't in the PC scene back then, eMachines built low-cost computers that became popular because of their price tags, but were generally disregarded by power users. Gateway purchased the company in 2004 for $262 million in cash and stock, which in turn was acquired by Acer in 2007 for $710 million. So there's a quick and dirty history on eMachines, a brand that will soon be history. Acer announced that it intends to discontinue the eMachines brand, though... Read more...
Remember Gateway? The bulk OEM is a bit of an obscure name these days, having been scooped up by Acer several years ago and no longer serving direct-to-consumer sales via its website or by telephone. Nevertheless, Gateway is still plugging away, its systems found at places like TigerDirect, and today we were given a heads up of new SX and DX Series desktops primarily aimed at students, though penny-pinchers should take notice, too. Gateway's DX Series desktops are the more performance oriented of the two. The new DX towers have a modern flair to them, and underneath the hood you'll find up to an... Read more...
If you’re looking to cut your IT budget and simplify your operations, Amazon is as usual more than happy to oblige. The company announced the AWS (Amazon Web Services) Storage Gateway, a (beta) service that connects on-premises software applications to cloud storage. The service will also mirror your on-premises storage to Amazon’s EC2. AWS Storage Gateway features point-in-time snapshots of app data, disaster recovery, and access to EC2’s on-demand capabilities, as well. This video puts things in plain English (with drawings): A single AWS Storage Gateway supports up to a dozen... Read more...
Call it vanity or simply getting with the times, either way Gateway scores some major style points for revamping its ID Series and NV Series of laptops. Both strut their stuff with attractive new chassis designs on the outside, and come powered by the latest in mobile technology in and around the hood. First up is the 14-inch ID47 series priced at $699.99. The chassis used is one you'd normally find on a 13.3-inch notebook, but edge-to-edge glass allowed Gateway to squeeze in a bigger display. Other specs include: Intel Core i5 2410M processor 4GB DDR3 RAM Intel HD 3000 graphics 500GB (5400RPM)... Read more...

The Gateway NV51B05u is currently available for about $470. Additional... Read more...
The ultraportable market gets more interesting by the day. For years, 11.6" machines were very, very expensive, mostly because it was costly to squeeze components into a shell so small. But then netbooks were introduced. Recently, some 11.6" netbooks have creeped up into a higher range category, with prices hovering between $500 and $600. Not exactly a bargain netbook, but these machines are usually plenty capable for most common users. Now, Gateway is looking to revive the high-end 11.6" machine with the EC19C-A52C/S laptop. It's a sleek new ultraportable that pulls no punches, and it's not afraid... Read more...

Intel's marketing division has a long history of partnering with OEMs in order to jointly promote a product, but the company's most recent initiative could create blowback from unhappy customers. According to information unearthed this past weekend, Intel is quietly testing the concept of "upgradeable" CPUs. Instead of buying a physical CPU and going to through the hassle of installing it, customers who purchase one of these systems could optionally purchase an upgrade card (current price: $50). Right now the program appears to be confined to Best Buy and a single Gateway, the SX2841-09e. There's... Read more...
One of the toughest reader questions to answer when it comes to hardware recommendations is "Which vendor gives the best support?" In theory, as journalists, we have both direct access to corporate staff and a wide reader base to poll from. In practice, companies claim this sort of information constitutes trade secrets and lock it down tighter than Ft. Knox. Laptop Magazine recently set out to rank the various major laptop vendors (Acer, Apple, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, Gateway, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, Sony, and Toshiba). beginning with a set of three basic questions for each. Most people aren't aware... Read more...
Is it a netbook? Or is it an ultraportable? That is certainly up for debate, but Gateway's LT32 is nonetheless an attractive portable computer. The design itself is certainly one of the nicest around, and the 11.6" display is one of the more unique available today. It offers a larger-than-usual screen compared to most 10" netbooks, yet it's far more compact than a traditional 13" ultraportable. It's also one of the few shipping machines to use AMD's Neo platform, which in our testing has shown to be a great rival to Intel's Atom family. The new LT32 series features Athlon II Neo CPUs and ATI graphics,... Read more...
We told you this was the week for notebook releases, didn't we? Keeping that train rolling is Gateway, with the new LT netbook lineup following the stylish ID range. The company's clearly playing the style card pretty frequently, as even for a netbook, we're pretty impressed with the design here. The new Gateway LT23 Series netbook boasts a new "upscale design" that makes it more of a fashion item than ever before, presumably in an effort to battle HP's own stylish netbooks. You can take a hard look at the new cover below, but we all know it's the specs that truly count. In that arena, there's... Read more...
