Reviews for the Gateway P-7801u

80% Gateway P-7801u FX Edition
Source: Digital Trends English
Some irks concerning a somewhat cheap-looking exterior aside, Gatway's P-7801u makes a utilitarian machine for working, gaming, and handling all the same tasks a desktop would, on the go. For anyone considering a machine in this size range, it would be difficult to find a comparable notebook for the price.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS:

Based on the desktop 9600 GT (G94 core), the 9800M GTS is produced in 65 nm and 55 nm on the 512 MB and 1024 MB models, respectively. The performance of the GTS is comparable to the GT version due to the higher clock speed. The PureVideo HD engine allows the GPU to decode HD videos.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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.


P8400:

Middle class dual core CPU with a TDP of 25 Watt. For high end gamer the performance could be not sufficient (for class 1 graphic cards).

17.0":

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

3.8 kg:

Gateway reviews


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
