Reviews for the Gateway M-151XL

60% Gateway M-151XL Thin and Light Notebook PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Gateway's M-151XL is really just an updated version of the previous M-150XL. It addressed some of the big issues such as the limited hard drive space and the slower than average processor, but it still retains some of the flaws of the old system like the lack of a FireWire port.
