The subnotebook should feel right at home for multimedia playback, classrooms, browsing, emailing, and the occasional travel especially since it doesn't rely on slower Intel Atom or Celeron solutions.

Laptop deals are flooding in thanks to the Holidays. The latest is the 14.1-inch Gateway Ultra Slim designed for users on tighter budgets who don't necessarily need all the bells and whistles of pricier alternatives. The laptop comes with the respectable Ryzen 3 3200U CPU, 1080p display, 4 GB of RAM, and a 128 GB SSD for a paltry $280 USD down from its original price of $500 USD.

The highlights of the deal are its Ryzen processor and 1080p display relative to the low asking price. Laptops for under $300 USD typically come with much slower Celeron or Atom CPUs or 768p displays. The Gateway will look and run more like an Intel Core i3 laptop worth twice the price as a result. It even manages to integrate a MicroSD reader, USB-C port, and fingerprint reader.

A key drawback to the deal is its soldered 4 GB of RAM which will limit the multi-tasking capabilities of the system. The tight 128 GB of storage can also be an issue, but we suspect this to be user-upgradeable once the warranty ends. Keep in mind that the system ships with Windows 10 Home S by default which can easily be switched to Windows 10 Home with just a few clicks.

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.
