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 display and runs more powerful Intel Core (Ivy Bridge) processors. This machine offers Intel HD... 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 17.3-inch NE72206u packing a quad-core AMD A6-5000 APU, 8GB of memory, and a 5400 RPM HDD is $499.99....

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 it will still offer Gateway and Packard Bell products, the latter of which it acquired in the Gateway... 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 Intel Core i7 3770 (Ivy Bridge) processor, up to 16GB of DDR3 memory, up to 2TB of hard drive storage,...

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 volumes and a total of 12TB of storage, and users can opt to store data at several different georgraphic...

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) hard drive Media-card reader 8x DVD burner 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi 1.3MP HD webcam Two stereo speakers w/...

Gateway is adding new models to its Gateway NV Series line of notebook PCs that will feature the latest AMD processors. The new line delivers a full-sized keyboard, large 15.6-inch HD widescreen Ultrabright LED-backlit display, three USB ports, an HDMI port, and more. The new line starts at $399.99 for the NV51B08u with an AMD C-Series processor C-50 with HD Internet Technology.

The Gateway NV51B05u is currently available for about $470. Additional models in the new line-up are also available with different specs and prices. Gateway... 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 of charging a lot despite a wealth of netbook options being available as well. There's a 1.33GHz... 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 no mention of that system at either companies' website; the specs for the SX2840-01 are available... 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 of this, but Panasonic briefly experimented with a NotSoToughBook before settling on their current... 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, not to mention an HD LED backlit display that's great for playing back high-def content. There's... 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 a 10.1" LCD panel (1024x600), a frame that weighs 2.76lbs., and an Intel Atom N450 processor. There's... Read more...
It's certainly the week for notebook launches, and the week couldn't end with Gateway getting in a couple of their own. The company's kicking things off with a super sleek new ID Series, which may just be one of the nicest looking 14" machines we've seen in awhile. Actually, the Gateway ID Series will be available in two sizes: the Gateway ID49 has a 14-inch HD Ultrabright LED-backlit display and weighs 5.07 pounds, while the Gateway ID59 has a 15.6-inch HD Ultrabright LED-backlit display and weighs 5.5 pounds. It's also boasting an aluminium alloy lid and measures only a slim 1-inch thin, and thankfully for those who cherish battery life, NVIDIA's Optimus technology is being used here. This... Read more...
Calling it the "iMac effect" just feels wrong, but there's no question that Gateway got their inspiration for this one from…well, somewhere. Regardless, the company's two newest all-in-one PC families are both sleek and beautiful, with one of them even being potent enough to be called powerful. These are being introduced at a time when some people are already thinking about back-to-school computers, and with options for Core i3/i5 CPUs as well as a Blu-ray drive, they could also double as a bedroom home entertainment center. The new ZX Series starts with the ZX4300 line, which has a 2.7GHz AMD Athlon II X2 dual-core CPU, Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), integrated ATI Radeon HD 4270 graphics,... Read more...
Gateway may not have the clout they once had, but don't you dare count them out. The company is rolling along in 2010 with more than a few significant announcements, and the new NV Series certainly hangs with the big boys in most every respect. The newly updated line reflects the changes that come with a new line of Intel CPUs, and we have to confess that the spec sheets look rather exciting. The NV line consists of two models: the 15.6" NV5 and 17.3" NV7. Both feature a high definition LCD widescreen, with the first having a Core i3 CPU, integrated webcam, 1366x768 panel and starting price of $799.99. The bigger brother has a 1600x900 resolution, HDMI port and an optional Blu-ray player, not... Read more...
Gateway may not be the giant that Dell is anymore, but they're still hanging around and producing quality machines for a smaller crowd. The company has just announced an expansion for their EC Series, with the new EC14D boasting something that most 11.6" machines don't: an optical drive. The new EC14D01h (full model number) has an 11.6" widescreen display, an integrated DVD drive and a chassis that weighs 3.55lbs.The drive within is an 8x super-multi double-layer DVD drive, which is frankly something that we'd love to see on every netbook. Or at least more than we currently do. Finding an integrated optical drive within a notebook is tough to do, and we applaud Gateway for stepping outside of... Read more...
Gateway just took the wraps off a new line-up of gaming systems and multimedia-ready desktop systems.  The offering ranges from their FX gaming-targeted models, to the DX mini-tower, SX (small form factor), and ZX all-in-one series systems.  All models ship with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, which is a nice touch and will come in handy addressing the rather stout system memory build-outs that are configured with the systems.  The FX models are your standard gaming PC offering but with some all new, swank stylings.  Gateway offers two builds to customize for this machine, ranging from $1300 - $1700 (not too shabby at all). The lower-end model is based on a 2.8GHz Core i7-860,... Read more...
Last month, SquareTrade—a company in the business of selling extended warranties directly to consumers online, with what it claims are better prices and coverage plans than store-bought options—released a report on netbook and notebook failure rates. Much of the discussion the report generated focused on the company's estimated failure rates for three-year-old systems, as well as the significant disparity between vendors. In focusing on that admittedly juicy section of the data, however, some of SquareTrade's other conclusions and the practical impact they may have on your wallet went mostly unreported. Study Methodology:SquareTrade's report is based on an analysis of 30,000 randomly selected... Read more...

Whenever Microsoft decides to push out a new operating system, PC makers--like clockwork--push out all new systems in order to showcase new wares on a new OS. Take Gateway, for instance, who has just released three new machines that are based on none other than Win7. The trifecta includes an 11.6" machine, which Gateway insists is an "ultraportable" and not a netbook, along with two 15.6" machines for those looking for something more mainstream. The little guy is the EC14, which boasts an 11.6" LED-backlit display, a battery that can last between six and eight hours, a 1.3GHz Intel Pentium Dual Core SU1400 CPU (CULV), a 1366x768 resolution panel, GMA4500MHD GPU, 4GB of DDR2-667 memory, 320GB...
