The Gateway MT definitely is a good laptop dollar for dollar. There was more than enough bloatware installed to hinder the initial performance. I have noticed a downside and this is in Paint. The Aero interface works well with no problems whatsoever and performs exceptionally well under standard web and desktop use. I researched the Turion 64 X2 vs. When I drop down to. Based on the experience I had with that laptop I was almost certain that my next one would also be a Gateway.

I got it home, turned it on and it gateqay as slow as my old P3 1GHz did. This could be that Paint. This is the only downfall to an otherwise superbly built laptop. There is also no backlighting and the color replication is very good for an LCD.

I have recommended this laptop on more than one occasion taking into consideration what the user would be doing with it. The reader is gatewag because it recognizes a 2GB SD card. The previous laptop was a workhorse. This pretty much determined the brand I was going to get but I had to decide which components I would get inside: I did a video stress test on Half Life 2 at the lowest settings and got a startling The DVD drive is very quiet and performs well.


Gateeay came in handy when I purchased the Logitech X surround sound system.

Overall, I would give this processor 8 out of 10 stars since the processor is great for what I use it for. The wrist rest portion is made of titanium and never gets hot even with extended use.

Bicycle – Mark Twain said it right. I went to a local retailer right after I got my tax refund back and they had this notebook for sale.
