Reviews for the Gateway Creator Series 15.6 GWTN156-3BK

82.1% Walmart Gateway Creator Series 15 Laptop Review: GeForce RTX 2060 For Under $1000 USD | Notebookcheck
It's one of the cheapest gaming laptops you can find with the GeForce RTX 2060 at the moment, but don't hop onboard just yet. The 8 GB of single-channel RAM and small 256 GB NVMe SSD might hinder your experience.
70% Gateway GWTN156-3BK review: A gaming laptop that lives a bit too loud
Source: PC World English
Gateway's GWTN156-3BK budget gaming laptop starts off well with its 10th-gen Core Comet Lake processor and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU. Meager RAM and storage, plus a noisy fan, are notable drawbacks.

Gateway GWTN156-3BK review: A gaming laptop that lives a bit too loud
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Any budget gaming laptop will have its flaws. In the case of the Gateway GWTN156-3BK, its omnipresent fan noise detracts from the everyday experience. The minimal memory and SSD also mean that you'll be itching to upgrade soon. Given that it offers well over 60-fps gaming performance at 1080p and Ultra settings, however, we’d say that it's still worth considering for your next budget gaming PC.
