Reviews for the Gateway EC1803h

Gateway EC1803h Review
Source: notebookforums.com English
This first caught my eye when looking for an ultra portable laptop - I was looking at the MSI and the Acer Timeline models which had the "new" SU3500 processor. I was intrigued by the configuration - a large screen (13.3") version of a netbook. I was turned off by the price though - $700-850 Canadian. In summary, this is the link between a netbook and a notebook. It's as powerful as the lower end notebooks but as portable as a netbook - especially because it's so thin. The battery life is reasonable, the graphics power is appropriate and the screen resolution makes it much more usable than a standard 1024x600 netbook.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

SU3500: Power efficient single core processor for small subnotebooks that is based on the Penryn core and includes all features (like Virtualization, C6 state, ...). The performance should be comparable with a 1.7 GHz Athlon II Neo K125.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.6": » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.5 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
