Reviews for the Gateway GWTC51427-BK
Source: PC Mag
The budget laptop segment is all about finding the best available deal, especially when that budget is well under $1,000. Walmart's Gateway 14.1-Inch Ultra Slim succeeds on the affordability front and delivers serviceable specs and good battery life, though it's hard to claim it's the best (or even particularly good) at any particular aspect. Its build quality, especially the touchpad, is mediocre, and its performance is decent but doesn't lead the way. The Gateway does undercut the cost of some competitors and offers ample storage with good connectivity, so it's not to be ignored. On the whole, however, it's an unremarkable system that's not in the same league as our economy Editors' Choice winner, the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 14.

Gateway: Gateway, Incorporated. is a computer hardware company based in California which develops, manufactures, supports, and markets a wide range of personal computers, computer monitors, servers, and computer accessories. AOL acquired Gateway.net, the online component of Gateway Inc., in 1999. 2007, Acer completed its acquisition of Gateway for approximately US$710 million. The market share outside of the US market is rather low.
In 2014 to 2016, Gateway did no longer belong to the Top 10 laptop manufacturers/distributors. Newer devices from Gateway are hardly reviewed by specialist media any longer (as of 2016).
60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
