Reviews for the Gateway M-1626

PC prices have come way down? A thousand bucks will buy you a first-class desktop? Even less will buy you a capable notebook? This is incredible! What's that you say? Why yes, my name is Van Winkle. How did you know? Obviously it's no longer news that even non-tech-savvy, non-wealthy consumers are buying PCs at which even experienced power users can't sneer (well, can sneer only at their lack of gonzo gaming graphics or ponderous power supplies). The shelves of Staples or Best Buy or Wal-Mart or [insert retailer here] are full of such machines. Nor is it a shocker to find vendors better known for direct online and phone sales, such as Dell and Gateway, at your nearest superstore, often selling slightly different, prepackaged configurations of the systems you see on their Web sites.

If you can look past the terrible battery life, the low-cost Gateway M-1626 is a decent midsize pick for a student laptop or for use as a secondary computer.

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.

TL-60: First in 90nm, later in 65nm produced dual-core processor based on the K8 core. Compareable performance to a 1.8 GHz Core Duo CPU with 1MB Level 2 Cache (Celeron Dual Core e.g.).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
