Reviews for the Gateway M-151XL
Source: Comp Reviews
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.
