A fairly capable performance laptop for an entry-level price. The Gateway Creator 15.6 includes a Ryzen H-series CPU, GeForce GPU, and even a high refresh rate 120 Hz IPS display for a performance level that's similar to many flagship performance Ultrabooks.

Coinciding with the Gateway 14 deal yesterday is the larger and faster Gateway Creator 15.6. As its name suggests, the Gateway Creator targets video editors or gamers on tight budgets with its faster hardware.

Users are getting a fairly powerful laptop for the $600 USD sale price. Most notably, the configuration comes with a Ryzen 5 4600H CPU to be as fast or even faster than more expensive laptops running on the Core i7-10750H or Core i7-10875H. The 1080p 120 Hz display and GeForce GTX 1650 graphics will also allow for smooth browsing and 1080p gaming at lower settings.

The main disadvantage to the deal is the low 8 GB of system RAM. Fortunately, there is a free SODIMM slot for expansion which is highly recommended for heavy multi-taskers. Users also shouldn't expect very accurate colors meaning more serious graphics editors might want to look elsewhere.

See our review on a higher-end configuration of the Gateway Creator 15 to learn more about the chassis and its features.

  • Ryzen 5 4600H

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
