The 14.1-inch Gateway T-6828 offers the same performance and features as similar models from Dell and Toshiba, at a lower price. However, we recommend you try the T-6828's keyboard before making a buying decision.

Gateway T-6828 Review

The Gateway T-6828 is a solid consumer notebook with plenty of power for everyday use. The low price, sizable hard drive, reasonably good battery life, and relatively cool temperatures help make the T-6828 a real value. The Core 2 Duo processor and solid 3GB of RAM mean this Gateway has enough performance to keep the average user quite happy ... as long as you don't care about playing the latest video games. Bottom line, the Gateway T-6828 is an excellent value in the 14.1" consumer notebook class. That said, for a little bit more money you can find similar notebooks with dedicated graphics cards for reasonable gaming performance.

If the Gateway T-6828 is to be remembered for something, it would be for including a two-year warranty in a value price: $800 (street). Adding an extra year on top of the one-year standard warranty is a game changer for budget laptops. Otherwise, apart from a few features like the 3GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive, the T-6828 offers little to distinguish it from low-priced systems by vendors such as Dell , HP , and Lenovo. The Gateway T-6828's impressive performance numbers and two-year warranty are overshadowed by a weak feature set and unimaginative design.

You’ll be hard-pressed to get more for your money than with the Gateway T-6828; for the price, it offers more style and hard drive space than other 14-inch notebooks. If you can handle a few drawbacks—the not-so-bright screen and the small touch buttons—this all-purpose portable is sure to please.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» 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.


Slow clocked dual core processor based on the Merom-2M core without virtualization functions.

14.1": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
