Reviews for the Gateway M-152XL

Gateway M-152XL Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Gateway M-152XL offers a great deal of performance and very good build quality for a very attractive price. While the standard retail price of this notebook is $1,299, at the time of this writing Gateway is currently selling it on their website with a $250 discount, bringing the final price down to $1,050. The only big complaint I had with our review model was the paint defect that gave off the shimmery discoloration, which didn't directly affect the performance or durability of the notebook and is not a common problem.

Gateway has developed a reputation for bundling state-of-the-art processing parts in relatively inexpensive laptops. The Gateway M-152XL, for instance, is a desktop replacement laptop that runs on Intel's latest "Penryn" technology and includes an ATI graphics card for casual gamers—not bad when you combine this kind of raw horsepower with a $1,299 (direct) price tag. The Gateway M-152XL is a bargain mainstream laptop that pushes performance limits.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600: This is a DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI and direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS graphic card for laptops and performs in games much better than the Nvidia card.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T8300: The Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 was at the time of announcement a fast dual-core CPU for laptops with 3 MB level 2 cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.
