5-0 out of 5 stars Gateway MP3 - A great buy!
I purchased Gateway's 256mb MP3/WMA player, model DMP-300, which is similar to the DMP-310, but without the radio.

Connection to my computer is provided via a USB cable, (included in the purchased package), and downloading an MP3 music file is a simple drag and drop function, from my computer to the MP3 player. For me, that's great. I want to listen to music, not reengineer the technology.

Sound quality was a great surprise. It is very clear, given the size of the headphones that come with the player.

The DMP-300 is a 3-1 device that gives you the ability to listen to music, store data files, or use as a voice recorder.

Dimentions: 1.53" x 3.39" x .52" and weight: (without the AAA battery) is 1.13 oz. Very compact and light! And the number one reason I chose this Gateway MP3 player.

Capacity of the model DMP-300 is 256mb, and I've been able to store about 52 of my favorite songs. Can't say for sure how much time total that is... but it's nearly 3 1/2 hours.

Menu functions are straight forward. Some of my favorites are the ability to set the player to repeat all, or as much of a song that you want to hear. There's also the Random play, which mixes up the listening order, and an intro feature that plays the first 10 seconds of each track. There is also a feature that allows you to adjust the units 10-band equalizer to your preference.

Buttons are easy. Play, stop, Rewind/Previous, FFwd/Next.
Two obvious volume control buttons, + and -.

I wish the unit allowed programed play, but it does play the songs in the order that they are recorded. A little forethought, programed play is easily accomplised in the order I record my music.

The unit has adjustable contrast for the disply. A blue backlight is also provided and can be turned off, or the duration of backlighting can be set for a shorter or longer period, depending on your preference.

It's just a great unit. The sound is clear with no background noise. Simple and straight forward to use, with some features that make playing your music a pleasure. Not a task.

3-0 out of 5 stars 3 stars for my first MP3 player
The CONs:
- it does drain a battery. I feel like I have to change it often, but its a AAA to thats probably why
- the navigation button doesnt always work as well as it should. I feel like its difficult to skip to the next song...forget this if at all if you are working out doing something high impact....you need a steady hand to do it and several attempts
- volume level doesnt go that high
- radio doesnt pick up stations and its not easy to set them
- cant do your own playlist in the the order you want. It sorts it alphabetically. You can do random but sometimes w hen working out i want to put songs in a certain order

PRO's:
- so small and lightweight!!! this is a great feature.
- i have the 256 mb capcity and sometimes i fit 90 songs on it.
- its really easy to plug and play into a computer!
- great for a commuter

I got this as a gift and as its my first one I have to say overall I love it as its much smaller and easier than a cd player when working out and commutting. However when I really think about it when I do get another one I probably will be checking out other ones unless they improve the navigation buttons and battery life. But seeing as how I have no experience with other MP3 players I dont know if this is a norm or not.

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent MP3 Player
I bought this as an upgrade to a 128 MB player, and thus far, don't mind it. It holds a lot of music (110+ songs in MP3Pro format, use MusicMatch to convert for free). The screen is big enough and shows all the nessisary info, though for some reason, the song time is messed up occasionally. Though, for example, it is a 4 minute song, the display says 2 minutes, and every second on the countup timer takes 2 seconds. Strange, but not really a crisis.

It's dirt easy to transfer songs, too; just plug the player into a USB port and drag and drop in Windows Explorer. Windows 2000, ME, and XP have the USB driver built in, too.

I like the size; not too big or too small. I wouldn't mind it being a sliver smaller, but oh well. I like the earphones that come with it too; nice and small, yet comfortable. The belt clip and neckstrap are nice, too.

I havent used the FM tuner much, but when I did, it picked up the popular stations well, but none of the weaker stations. The voice recorder is great for recording notes to yourself, but too weak to make recordings of a lecture. You can record from the radio, too, which is cool, if not kinda pointless.

The navigation button is frustrating at times -it pauses when I try to skip forward, or it doesn't do anything when I press forward- but I usually get it. It doesn't have a browse feature, either, so you must manually go through all the songs to get to the one you want. One thing I hate is the battery life; it seems that every few hours I must change it. It's probably more like 6, but still.

The customer service is great, too. My first one had a loose wire and kinda melted (kool to look at, anyhow) and I called them and it was replaced within 10 days, free of charge.

PROS
-Cost: only $125 now
-Size: about the size of two of my fingers (I'm a big guy though)
-Capasity: Over 4hrs/110 songs w/ MP3Pro.
-4 in 1: Works great as voice recorder, FM tuner (for strong stations), and thumbdrive.
-Included Accesories (Belt clip, neckstrap, USB extention cable)
-Great customer support.

CONS
-Buttons don't always work.
-FM tuner bad on weaker signals.
-Battery life: 5-6 hrs.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy a Nomad Muvo Instead
I bought this player as a replacement for my Muvo which died after about a year of use. That came with just 3 months warranty so there was nothing I could do about it. About Gateway's DMP-310:

I like the extra features. The voice recorder and FM tuner are a nice bonus and the display is great. It ultra-portable and it comes with its own leather case with belt clip attached which is also very nice.

What I don't like: The volume quality is terrible! I am comparing it with the Muvo which is built in the same way, so I don't understand why the volume would be so different. Battery life is the pits! I have had this player for four days now and have gone through as many batteries. Each has lasted less than 2 hours, even after turning off the backlight feature and setting the energy saving mode on. I'm not sure if I got a bad apple or if this is common with these players, but it appears that I will be spending more on batteries than on music. The Muvo, was not the greatest battery saver either, but I could at least expect to get a week of use out of it before the battery died. This DMP-310 requires a daily battery change even with light use.

3-0 out of 5 stars Dimal Sound
I bought this as a replacement for my Nomad Muvo which just died after about a year of use. I really like that it is a flash MP3 players and that there are no internal moving parts, so it won't skip like hard drive based MP3 players. The radio tuner, recorder and display are nice features. Note that these features make the unit slightly larger than the Muvo. The worst thing about Gateway's DMP-310 is its sound quality. It's dismal! I am comparing it to the Muvo which pretty much is built and works in the same way. I expected similar sound quality but it's considerably less even using other headphones (the ones that came with the Muvo). While it may be good for running (no skiping) it's not that good for running on a treadmill (not a loud treadmill at least). ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Audible and voice recording - could be better for me
I've had the DMP-X20 for about 3 weeks. It's a nice piece of equipment but as far as I can tell it's not the holy grail of players.

I should preface my review by saying my primary interest in the Gateway was not for the MP3 player, but for the Audible player. I was also interested in the voice recording feature. While the DMP-X20 provides both options, they're a bit clunky. Previously I was using a pocket PC (Dell Axim) as my player, which worked pretty well but didn't have the capacity I wanted.

The DMP-X20 only supports Audible format 4. This format is 4 times the file size of format 2 (the format I had been using), which means more disk space is required and longer download times of books over the internet. I found this very disappointing. The other drag is that I cannot drag-and-drag Audible files to the player as I could with my pocket PC (at least by any means I can understand). This disappointed me as well because Audible's user interface program isn't what I would call user friendly.

There is a limitation in the number of bookmarks you can use, and I'm not sure why.

The voice recording works pretty well, once you get it going. However, it takes so long to switch to the recording mode. This makes it impractical if you plan to use it to make quick voice recordings. It also doesn't have a convenient way to stop and start recordings with the intention of separating a meeting into different tracks. Not as fluid as other digital voice recorders I've used. The upside to the voice recording is that the mic does record fairly well. One thing that seems a little weird is that I haven't been able to delete my voice recordings. I've followed the instructions but the menu they say should appear doesn't. Either I'm doing something wrong or their firmware upgrade has a glitch.

Customer support was not very helpful when I contacted them via their web site. I just received back from them a canned answer that didn't answer my question. But hey, they're primary business is computers, not MP3 players ... though my experience would deter me from buying a PC from them.

There also doesn't seem to be a feature that "wakes it up" the player. If you let it sit and it shuts itself off, you have to turn the power switch off and back on again for it to come on ... just tedious, you know?

The protective case - nice concept but it frays along the edges. Sloppy craftsmanship.

The radio - works about as good as any FM radio without an antenna. If you don't need the antenna where you live, you'll love it.

NONE of my criticisms add up to this being a bad player, it's just not the holy grail.

On the upside - it feels pretty solid, though I haven't dropped it yet. A tad heavy but nice dimensions. The scroll wheel is awesome! As compared to my pocket PC, the controls are much more user friendly, especially when driving.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Jukebox
I have owned this jukebox for 6 months now (as of May 20 2004) and love it. It sounds great (with good headphones), is easy to use, well made and the price is right. So far I have loaded over 3000 songs and I use it every day. The unit has performed flawlessly. I would recommend this over any other jukebox on the market. Almost all the problems that some of the other reviewers had are corrected by the following update. Don't pay any attention to what they say. This is a fantastic jukebox. We own 2 of them.

Tom

Update!!!

There is a Firmware update that allows 4000 playlists. It also corrected numerous other glitches, most I was unaware of. This seems to indicate Gateway is serious about supporting this player. The update was easy and went flawlessly. I still highly recommend it after 3 months of regular use.

Here's the improvements

"Reason for Update

Version 2.3
·Increases the maximum number of playlists to 4,000.
·When the unit tries to play an unsupported wave format, a message displays noting that the format is unsupported. Before, the unit would hang up.
·Added support for WAV files created on the PC in the following format: PCM at 8000 Hz, 16 Bit, Mono.

·In Audible Menu, the default selection was changed to always be the top of the list.
·Long WMA DRM files (> 12 min) caused the device to lock up.
·Player was resetting when selecting any playlist while playing any voice recording file.
·While playing the voice recording, sometimes the player shows "No Items" for MFM menus.
·During Audible playback, when PREV key was pressed, the player either reset or go into fast forward mode.
·While playing an Audible book, there are a couple of places that skip 10 minutes of the book.
·Audible automatic bookmark did not save when switching from Audible to Voice Recording Playback and from Audible to Bookmarks.
·When playing different types of tracks (MP3/WMA) from playlist menu, the player resets but starts the track after reset.
·With MP3 and WMA tracks in the hotlist, pressing the back key was not giving the same list view every time.
·Playlist names are not being displayed correctly.
·Resume last track does not work properly in from WMA module.
·Playlist name with 128 characters was not properly showing on display after scroll up/down.
·Playlist with identical names were blocked but last character was not nullified.
·Bookmark index was not correct. Selecting an existing bookmark played the wrong track.
·The X of Y on the play screen sometimes is incorrect or it disappears.
·While adding an artist to the playlist, it goes to the artist list menu in that state. If the play button is pressed, the wrong track is played.
·When more than 8 playlists were added, all the playlist names were not visible and the scrolling was missing when viewed by pressing select button through the play screen.
·If Output Setting is set to Line Out, the volume information screen is not displayed when in Play Mode and the scroll wheel is used.In Playlist edit mode, when moving a track, the Delete and Add selections should not be allowed to be selected."

1-0 out of 5 stars Great for Audible - otherwise unsupported & fatally flawed
Player does wonderfully with my over 85 aubible files but contrary to manual will NOT accept playlists from WMP (even version 9) and instead it scrambles lists back to alphabetic and frequently confuses songs from different artists.

Gateway's Support is staggeringly poor and basically they lie and cheat. After tens of emails since April and initial denials that there was any problem, every time I have asked them to take the machine back, they have said "just wait sir" the new software we are working on will solve this problem (note that the Feb 19 upgrade did nothing to help and their other solutions of reformatting (several times) and reloading all your files will just waste your time and try your patience). Finally today, they have admitted that gateway has no way of making a WMP playlist work but having confirmed this, now they say they WILL DO NOTHING FOR ME because the Warranty has expired!!!!! In other words their tactic was to spin out the customer exchange till they had an excuse to refuse to help.

If you want good audible performance and do not care if your albums play out of order, this is a viable buy - otherwise do not consider it, Gateway have no intention of supporting it further and their tech support team know nothing about the item.

1-0 out of 5 stars gateway digital jukebox-a scam for for your money
I purchased this as a gift for my husband. The unit has shut down and scrambled songs twice. The unit has been replaced twice. They never repair, only replace it with another dysfunctional unit. Customer service is horrible!! No support from Gateway. What a mistake. Do not buy this unit!!!!!!! You will kiss 300 dollars good-bye!

1-0 out of 5 stars Caveat Emptor!
This is a great little device when it's working. The primary reason I bought it was its Audible.com compatibility. Suddenly it became incompatible and the Audible techs finally informed me that this happens all the time and the hard drive needs to be reformatted to fix the problem. I've owned computers since 1979 and have never had to reformat a hard drive. So I checked with Gateway. Guess what? The DMP-X20 when purchased from a 3rd party is not supported by Gateway. Really! I gave them the serial number and they don't keep a record of serial numbers for MP3 players. They flat out refused to talk to me about the unit because I had no order number or Customer ID number. Fortunately, even though I've had the unit for about 3½ months, Amazon has agreed to accept its return. I'll be buying an iPod. Do not buy this unit unless you're prepared for zero support from Gateway. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Sharp and bright with abundant connections for both your PC and your home-theater gear, Gateway's 23-inch widescreen LCD TV is one versatile television. The set's broad, sleek screen has a 15:9 widescreen aspect ratio that more closely matches the dimensions of your favorite movies than do standard 4:3 screens. Further, it's fully compatible with DTV set-top boxes and high-definition computer signals. It has component-video, VGA, and DVI (digital visual interface) inputs, not to mention an NTSC tuner for immediate over-air reception. Hook it up with a progressive-scan DVD player to get the full benefit of your discs' seamless, 480p resolution.

Kitchens, bedrooms, offices, or dormitories will be equally well served by the set, which includes a table stand to simplify desk- or table-top positioning. LCDs are more power-efficient than either CRTs or plasma screens, and while they may not be as bright, overall, as plasmas, they get more wallet friendly every week. You'll see none of the irritating scan lines or flickering that's visible on CRT sets or monitors, and you can forget about both ghosting and image burn-in, no matter how many hours a week you spend parked in front of your favorite video game.

This Gateway TV is no slouch in the specs department, offering an impressive 500:1 contrast ratio, high (450 cd/m2) brightness, and a wide, 170-degree viewing angle. A total of nine video inputs consist of RGB PC, DVI, high-definition component-video, two S-video, three composite-video, and an RF coaxial/antenna input.

The set's motion-adaptive 3D digital comb filter enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt).

Stereo speakers with 5 watts per channel offer strong, clear sound, and you can always plug a pair of headphones into the set's headphone jack for more private (or just louder) listening. Bass, treble, and audio balance controls let you tailor the set's sound output, and, for more spacious-sounding programs, 3D sound processing simulates surround sound through any two speakers. A stereo minijack (.125-inch) output facilitates hookup with optional external computer speakers, and a monaural minijack output lets you use an optional subwoofer to enhance the low-frequency response of your listening system.

Amazon.com Product Description

Gateway's 46-inch, widescreen plasma television boasts an impressive 800:1 contrast ratio for deep, rich blacks, high 700 cd/m2 brightness for vivid colors, and plenty of audio/video inputs and outputs for other home-entertainment gear. There's even an RGB PC input with PC PIP (picture-in-picture) so you can view your computer images in larger-than-life lushness.

The Benefits of Enhanced TV
Standard TVs (SDTVs) display a maximum of 480 lines using the interlaced scan method, which creates a picture with alternating lines of information.
Enhanced-definition TVs (EDTVs) display a maximum of 480 lines using the progressive-scan method, which creates an image using consecutive lines of information for a crisp, flicker-free picture.
Gateway's plasma TVs are astonishingly thin.
This is an EDTV (enhanced-definition) TV, so it's capable of displaying progressive-scan 480p signals in their native resolution. A built-in digital scaling engine accepts various computer and HDTV signals, then digitally maps them to fit the screen's 852 x 480 pixels. Compatible signals include computer display resolutions up to 1,280 x 1,024 and all HDTV signals, including 720p and 1080i.

Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p and 720p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of conventional interlaced pictures, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

A plasma screen consists of two thin sheets of glass containing tiny, gas-filled cells. Electronic current stimulates the cells to produce light and color, creating bright, steady, vivid pictures. You also get extremely wide viewing angles (160 degrees with this set), and easy placement due to the TV's slim profile--this Gateway set is a mere 3.7 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting (a table stand is optional, and the set is compatible with most mounting hardware). Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems.

Gateway even offers advanced digital image processing, which converts all interlaced (composite-video, S-video) signals to progressive-scanned images for bright, flicker-free viewing. A built-in digital visual interface (DVI) jack eliminates the need for analog-to-digital conversion between your DTV set-top box or computer.

The set also performs 3:2 pulldown. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24-frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

PC PIP (picture-in-picture) gives you the option of using your PC and watching one input source (including broadcast TV) simultaneously. A choice of digital zoom modes lets you fill the screen to eliminate letterbox bars on 4:3 (or other) aspect-ratio content, and picture freeze ensures you don't miss any details.

Audio options abound: there's a stereo RCA output with internally selectable fixed or variable level, a pair of built-in 2-watts-per-channel speakers, plus left/right 10-watts-per-channel amplified speaker outputs in case you want to use the set with an external pair of speakers. You can use a feature called WOW sound maximizer to tailor the timbre to your taste, and a circuit from SRS Labs simulates surround sound from any two speakers.

With its versatile power supply (AC 100 to 240V, 50 or 60 Hz, 5 Amps) and multilingual menu (English, French, and Japanese), the 46-inch set is equally at home in many countries, and a BNC-tipped composite-video output provides additional hookup flexibility (with, for instance, a PVR or VCR).

2-0 out of 5 stars Gateway 46" Plasma Review
I have had the television for 2 weeks and i am now returning it due to the poor picture quality. Contrast is not good on DVDs, i even tried S-Vid and Component but both did not change the problems.I used Schindler's List, Lord Of The Rings, and Finding Nemo to try and calibrate the color and contrast.
The opening menu for Schindler's list looked horrible in contrast. You could clearly see three different shades of black and white, which should have blended together. In LOTR during the council of elrond the picture was either too grainy or fleshtone colors on the characters faces were too bright. Finally on Finding Nemo the television had problems finding a medium between making the bright colors too brite or too bland, again no easy medium.
The television would also not turn on if i did not turn it off from the rear power switch each time. And after playing Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow for all of 30 minutes there was already burn in on the lower right of the screen.

I got the television for 3000, it might be cheaper than an HDTV but in my opinion its not worth it. ... Read more


29. Gateway 42" Ultrabright EDTV Flat-Panel Plasma TV

Amazon.com Product Description

If it's super-bright, high-contrast images you're after, you've arrived at the right television. The vivid realism for which plasma flat-panel sets are known gets a strong boost from Gateway's 42-inch, widescreen set, which boasts a high, 600:1 contrast ratio for rich, fathomless blacks alongside an impressive 570 cd/m2 brightness. You'll also get plenty of audio/video inputs and outputs for your other home-entertainment gear, including an RGB PC input and output.

The Benefits of Enhanced TV
Standard TVs (SDTVs) display a maximum of 480 lines using the interlaced scan method, which creates a picture with alternating lines of information.
Enhanced-definition TVs (EDTVs) display a maximum of 480 lines using the progressive-scan method, which creates an image using consecutive lines of information for a crisp, flicker-free picture.
Gateway's plasma TVs are astonishingly thin.
This is an EDTV (enhanced-definition) TV, so it's capable of displaying progressive-scan 480p signals in their native resolution. A built-in digital scaling engine accepts various computer and HDTV signals, then digitally maps them to fit the screen's 852 x 480 pixels. Compatible signals include computer display resolutions up to 1,280 x 1,024 and all HDTV signals, including 720p and 1080i.

Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p and 720p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional interlaced pictures, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

A plasma screen consists of two thin sheets of glass containing tiny, gas-filled cells. Electronic current stimulates the cells to produce light and color, creating bright, steady, vivid pictures. You also get extremely wide viewing angles (160 degrees with this set) and easy placement due to the TV's slim profile--this Gateway set is a mere 3.7 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting (a table stand is supplied, and the set is compatible with most mounting hardware). Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems.

Picture-in-picture (PIP) allows you to watch two programs simultaneously with four selectable window positions. Picture-on-picture (POP) lets you watch two programs side by side. PIP/POP is available when your video source is set to anything other than RGB, DVI, or HD sources (component-video sources higher than 480i resolution). For example, you can watch two analog TV programs simultaneously by using the built-in TV tuner and an external tuner such as the one inside your DVR or VCR. You can also watch analog TV and a DVD movie at the same time.

A choice of digital zoom modes lets you fill the screen to eliminate letterbox bars on 4:3 (or other) aspect-ratio content, and a built-in digital visual interface (DVI) input jack eliminates the need for analog-to-digital conversion between your DTV set-top box or computer.

Audio options abound: there's a stereo RCA output with internally selectable fixed or variable level, a pair of built-in 5-watts-per-channel speakers, plus BBE Sound maximizer to tailor the timbre to your taste. For spacious surround sound, a circuit from SRS Labs simulates surround from any two speakers, while a monaural RCA output lets you use an optional subwoofer to enhance the low-frequency response of your listening system.

Amazon.com Product Description

Accenting portability and affordability rather than crushing power, the three-deep Gateway M405 series of notebooks is worthy of investigation by budget-conscious folks who need to keep their computer nearby wherever they go. This model, the M405XL, is the most expensive and certainly most capable of the M405 series, offering such goodies as wireless communication, CD burning, DVD playing and a comparatively large 40 GB hard disk.

Though not a true ultra-lightweight notebook such as those found in Gateway's slightly pricier 200 series, the M405XL is nevertheless comfortably portable at just 13.15 by 10.63 by 1.33 inches and 6.10 pounds As is typical for many of today's small-scale notebooks, the unit features Intel's new Centrino technology. Built upon a triad of interconnected elements -- an Intel Pentium M CPU (with 1 full GB of Level 2 cache), an Intel 855 chipset, and a cord-free network connection -- Centrino-equipped notebooks deliver more power and more perks than their size and rated processor speeds might otherwise indicate. In the case of the M405XL, that processor is a speedy 1.5 GHz Intel Pentium M. Gateway has also included 256 MB of DDR SDRAM memory and an Intel Extreme Graphics 2 video controller, thus giving users solid general computing capabilities but unspectacular multitasking, high-end business and 3-D performance.

The M405XL is crammed with impressive mobile features such as a 40 GB hard disk and an optical drive that permits CD playing and burning and DVD playing. The unit's display delivers a surprisingly generous 15 inches of viewing area and a sufficient maximum resolution of 1024 by 768. Communication options include not only a standard 56K dial-up modem and a 10/100 Ethernet network adapter, but also an integrated 802.11b wireless connection for those times when you can't or don't want to plug in. DVD writing is not supported.

Other important amenities include a pair of high-speed USB 2.0 ports for fast interaction with external peripherals such as scanners or digital cameras, a VGA port for external monitors, a parallel "printer" port, and an S-Video TV-out, a full size keyboard and a convenient EZ Pad pointing device. An IEEE 1394 FireWire port (typically used for digital camcorder downloads) is not included.

Bundled software includes Microsoft's Windows XP Home Edition and a 90-day trial with Norton AntiVirus. ... Read more

Asin: B0002OUCDY
Catlog: Personal Computer

Amazon.com Product Description

The Basics:
Developed primarily for those who prioritize futuristic conveniences and easy portability over mind-numbing power, the Gateway 4525GZ Notebook PC is ideal for businesspeople, personal users and students who are always on the go. Highlights include DVD recording, wireless connectivity, a surprisingly spacious 80 GB hard drive, and battery-efficient Intel Centrino technology. Diehard gamers and serious 3D artists and designers will want to look for a notebook with superior 3D graphics capabilities, but most everyone else should find the Gateway 4525GZ delivers enough power and all the amenities they’re likely to need.

Processor:
At the heart of any computer lies the CPU (processor), a massive array of miniature transistors that governs the speed and power of the entire unit. Some of today’s notebooks are equipped with state-of-the-art CPU’s on par with those found in the finest desktop PCs, while others are quick enough only for basic duties such as word processing, email and the like. The Gateway 4525GZ is equipped with an Intel Pentium M 705 processor running at 1.5 GHz. This is one of three components (the others being a specialized Intel chipset and integrated wireless) that comprise Intel’s efficient Centrino system. Centrino-equipped notebooks are generally smaller and easier on the batteries than their non-Centrino counterparts, with a heaping helping of "Level 2" cache for faster retrieval of recently accessed information. It is important to note, however, that this particular processor is the most affordable of the newly revamped Pentium M roster, and as such offers just one MB of Level 2 cache. While this is an impressive total when compared to non-Pentium M CPUs, it is half the Level 2 cache of all other new 2004 Pentium M CPUs. Nevertheless, it should easily handle most common mobile tasks while at the same time improving battery life.

Memory:
Computers typically store information on their hard drive, but they keep frequently and recently accessed data in Random Access Memory (RAM) for faster retrieval. More RAM means more efficient computing, superior multitasking and less strain on your hard drive. The Gateway 4525GZ incorporates 512 MB of RAM of PC2700 DDR RAM, an average allotment and speed for midlevel notebooks. This total may later be expanded to an impressive 2 full GB, more than enough for even the most demanding multitasking purposes.

Video:
CPU’s are usually so busy performing basic calculations that they need help translating visual output to the viewing screen, a duty that falls upon the graphics card (or graphics controller). This system’s graphics controller is an Intel Extreme Graphics 3D with 32 MB of "shared" video memory. This is an entry-level video controller, unequipped with "dedicated" memory and appropriating just 32 MB of the system’s main memory. As such, the system will accurately display 2D and some midlevel 3D tasks, but is not recommended for modern 3D games or other demanding applications such as 3D animation and 3D graphic design.

Display:
Some of today’s largest notebooks are equipped with massive 17-inch displays, while many super-compact "ultra-lights" sport substantially smaller 12-inch displays. The Gateway 4525GZ features a midsize TFT XGA 15-inch non-widescreen display.

Hard Disk:
A sub-compact notebook with a truly large hard drive is not commonplace, yet the Gateway 4525GZ houses a generous 80 GB of internal storage space. If you need to install and operate a broad range of applications and also keep a library of space-gobbling music and/or multimedia files, the unit is up to the job.

Optical Drive:
An optical drive is essential in today’s computing environment. A "CD-ROM" drive allows you to install CD-based applications and play music CDs. A "CD-RW" drive adds CD "burning", so you can also backup your important files to long-lasting discs and create personalized music CDs. With a DVD-ROM drive you can watch DVD movies. And with a DVD-RW drive, you can "write" home movies to durable discs and archive files to DVD (DVDs boast more than seven times the storage capacity of a CD). Most drives allow you to do a combination of all of these tasks. This system features a DVD+/- RW drive through which you can do all of the above.

Audio:
Gateway has equipped the system with an integrated audio chip, built-in stereo speakers, a microphone jack and headphone/audio out.

Keyboard and Controls:
You’ll control your notebook via a standard mobile keyboard and a touchpad with vertical scroll zone.

Connectivity and Expansion:
The Gateway 4525GZ offers a wide variety of ways to keep in touch, including a 56K modem for low-speed dial-up Internet and email access, a 10/100Mbps Ethernet port for high-speed wired network and Internet, and an integrated 802.11g wireless connection for cord-free e-communication at home, at the office or on the road via a local public hotspot. Other key amenities include four high-speed USB 2.0 ports for plug and play devices such as external drives and digital cameras, an IEEE 1394 FireWire port (commonly used for quick data uploads from digital camcorders), and a versatile 4-in-1 Digital Medai Manager for reading memory cards from devices such as cameras, PDAs and the like.

Operating System and Software:
Gateway has fitted the unit with today’s most popular operating system, Microsoft’s Windows XP Home Edition. Other applications include Microsoft’s Works 7.0 productivity suite, Microsoft’s Money 2004 financial center, and an array of multimedia and Internet utilities.

Dimensions and Weight:
Notebook computers are manufactured in a wide variety of sizes and weights. Many of today’s most powerful notebooks are also the largest, weighing ten or twelve lbs or more and therefore too big and bulky for extensive, continuous traveling. These are often referred to as "desktop replacements". On the other extreme are "thin and lights" or "ultra-portables", super-miniaturized units that generally aren’t as powerful as their larger brethren but weigh as little as two lbs and fit comfortably inside a large purse. Tipping the scales at just 5.5 lbs and measuring a mere 12.9 by 10.5 by 1.08 inches, the Gateway 4525GZ is small enough to fit inside a briefcase or large purse and not so heavy that it’s prohibitively cumbersome on long journeys.

Power:
The unit is equipped with an 6-cell Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The BasicsTaking advantage of several recent technological innovations yet priced in the same ballpark as many desktops that do not, Gateway’s 550GR Desktop PC is a powerful yet comparatively affordable computing centerpiece ideal for virtually any office, personal or leisure environment. Businesspeople will appreciate the unit’s powerful Pentium 4 processor and huge hard drive, multimedia buffs will love the comprehensive connectivity and advanced DVD recording facilities, and gamers should get along quite well with the system’s solid 3D graphics performance. Though you can certainly spend more for a desktop computer, the Gateway 550GR delivers most everything a demanding user needs at a reasonable price point.

Processor
At the heart of any computer lies the CPU (or processor), a massive collection of miniature transistors that governs the speed and power of the entire unit. The Gateway 550GR features one of today’s fastest CPUs, an Intel Pentium 4 540. New for 2004, this is an upgraded version (nicknamed "Prescott") of the venerable Pentium 4 chip, featuring one full MB of Level 2 cache and a more generous data "pipeline" than prior models. Operating at a scorching 3.2 GHz and of course sporting Intel's Hyper-Threading technology (Hyper-Threading allows a single CPU system to behave at times as a dual CPU system, thus adding substantially more speed to some high-end applications), this is a strong CPU that’s ready for any situation.

Memory
Computers typically store information on their hard drive, but they keep frequently and recently accessed data in Random Access Memory (RAM) for faster retrieval. More RAM means more efficient computing, superior multitasking and less strain on your hard drive. For the Gateway 550GR, Gateway has installed 512 MB of 400 DDR memory, configured in a dual channel setup for even faster response. This is an average RAM allotment for a computer of this caliber, but its rated speed is comparatively quick. As such, it is more than enough for most multitasking situations and complex applications. Moreover, the system’s mainboard is constructed to support RAM upgrades to a whopping 2 GB.

Video
CPU’s are usually so busy doing basic calculations that they need help translating visual output to the viewing screen. This is the duty of the graphics card (or graphics controller). A graphics controller with "dedicated" video memory is preferable to a controller that "shares" the system’s main memory, as it will better handle complex procedures. The Gateway 550GR features an ATI Radeon X300 SE PCI-Express, a strong graphics card with 128 MB of dedicated video memory. This card is capable of accurately displaying virtually any 2D application and delivering smooth frame rates and immersive, lifelike visuals to the 3D animations found in most computer games and 3D animation packages. Hardcore gamers and 3D artisans who demand perfect frame rates at extremely high resolutions may want to upgrade to a far pricier 256 or 512 MB video card, but this card should be quite adequate for the majority of users.

Display:
Gateway has not included a display screen, thus allowing you to continue using your current monitor or select from today’s many alternatives.

Sound
The Gateway 550GR produces stereo and surround sound via an Intel High Definition Audio chipset with support for six distinct audio channels and one subwoofer. Gateway has also enclosed a pair of amplified desktop speakers, though serious audiophiles may want to upgrade to a three-piece subwoofer-enhanced set or a surround sound configuration.

Hard Drive
At 200 GB, the unit’s internal hard drive is spacious enough for a massive allotment of files and applications and a comprehensive music, video/photo and multimedia library too. Furthermore, this particular hard drive is exceptionally quick – sporting a fast 7200 RPM speed, an 8 MB buffer, and a futuristic Serial ATA connection. These are all comparatively recent innovations, each increasing the overall speed and performance of the system.

Optical Drive
An optical drive is essential in today’s computing world. A "CD-ROM" drive allows you to install CD-based applications and play music CDs. A "CD-RW" drive adds CD "burning", so you can also backup your important files to long-lasting discs and create personalized music CDs. With a DVD-ROM drive you can enjoy all of the above plus watch the same big budget DVD movies you watch on your home entertainment system. And with a DVD-RW drive, you can also "write" home movies to durable discs and archive files to DVD (DVDs boast more than seven times the storage capacity of a CD).

This system features two optical drives -- a CD-ROM drive for playing music and data CDs, and a DVD +/- RW drive through which you can do everything else listed above. Moreover, this drive supports "double layer" DVD recording, effectively delivering nearly twice the capacity of traditional DVDs.

Connectivity and Expansion
With a truly grand total of seven high-speed USB 2.0 ports, you’ll have plenty of room for plug and play gadgets such as digital cameras and printers. Gateway has also included a trio of IEEE 1394 "FireWire" ports (commonly used for fast data transfer from digital camcorders) and a versatile 8-in-1 card reader for reading memory cards from devices such as digital cameras, PDAs and more. Communication options include an integrated Gigabit networking interface (substantially faster data transfer rates than traditional 100BaseT Ethernet) for Internet and network communication, and a V.92 data/fax modem for low-speed dial-up connections.

Operating System and Software
The Gateway 550GR features a comprehensive software package headed by Microsoft’s beefy Windows XP Home Edition operating system. Gateway will also pre-install Microsoft’s Money 2004 financial center, Microsoft’s Works 7.0 productivity package, Microsoft’s Picture It Premium photo and graphic editing suite, and a variety of high-end multimedia utilities such as the superb Nero 6 Suite CD and DVD burning package.

Control
The system includes a Gateway Premium Multimedia Keyboard and a two-button mouse with scroll wheel. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little machine, particularly with a few upgrades
This computer is spectacular, it looks great and also runs well. It is very small, but the keyboard is of usable size and has a good feel to it (my old gateway notebook definitely had a bit of a flimsy feel to it).

A few things:
1) GET THE HIGH CAPACITY BATTERY. The stock battery is awful, but such is life. Don't order it from gateway though, check out other places, such as a particular online warehouse with a three letter name. I got mine for almost 1/2 the price Gateway was charging there, and the service was a lot better.
2) The speakers suck too. The computer is less than 1" think. What do you expect? They're finally beginning to come out with wi-fi products that will use your connection to stream music from your computer to your stereo. I can't wait to get my hands on one, until then, plug it into to your stereo or use headphones.
3) Adding more RAM is highly recommended. I added an additional 512MB that I got from a well-known auction site for $50. The difference is immediately noticable; XP devours RAM.
4) Download iTunes. Seriously, even if you don't want to download music from them, it has to be the most user-friendly (not to mention free and visually pleasing) music library managment software on the planet.
5) STAY UPDATED. Every time you read about an attack, its because people don't update their OS, antivirus, and firewall software/hardware. It takes a few seconds every few weeks, and any decent company will alert you to the updates automatically. This will also eliminate 99% of problems people may experience with their wi-fi connections; the software updates usually fix glitches that weren't anticipated when the product was manufactured (I use a D-Link DI-624 router, and it's been phenomenal).
6) You'll want to get a USB drive if you need to move files off-network regularly. They're compact, hold a lot, and have become really inexpensive. I ended up buying one and couldn't be happier. Or you can do as I used to: just email files to yourself and access them at your final destination (I had a habit of losing/leaving behind floppies when I was in college).

All that said, for the price, this system simply can't be beat. Even without all the extra BS I bought for mine, it's still a great notebook. It runs cool and fast and looks great. You won't find many other notebooks with these specs and functionality.

5-0 out of 5 stars slick, fantastic little machine!
I wanted a sleek looking little laptop with a decent size screen and 512mb of ram... and I got all that and more! It does everything I need, never hiccups, it's lightweight... I'm really glad I bought it. It's beauty is not only skin deep, have a look at the specs :) It's great. The only complaint... buy a backup battery... the standard one runs out so quickly.

4-0 out of 5 stars In a word, Cool
I'm going to cover what hasn't already been written about. So, here are things that make this laptop stand-out or stink-up.

Pros:
- The Centrino Chip clocks at 1.5MHz; I have heard that this translates to a P4 2.5MHz processor. This part is confusing; just know that games and applications work fast.
- Screen checks in at 14.1" which is a good working size - slightly more to carry than those 12" screens, but much more useable and it leaves room in the chassis for a full-sized keyboard.

- Comes with internal DVD/CDRW which I find really cool (as opposed to external, which would be a pain to carry).
- AC adaptor is pretty cool. It's made so you can wrap the cord around it neatly when you're not using it, and then there is a little snap thing on the plug so the cord doesn't get unraveled.
- Lots of useful external ports (2 usb's, firewire, ethernet, modem, PCMCIA slot, video out, S-video out, etc). I especially like the optical out, which I don't use, but I still like it being there.
- Wireless works well. Go Centrino technology!
- Comes with many programs inside (Windows XP, MS Works, Picture It!, Jukebox, etc)
- The battery looks cool. If you take it out, there are some little led lights and a button you press that shows how much battery life is left.
- This is one of the sleekest designs and coolest looking notebooks around. If you want to stand out from all those other black books in the airport or commuter train, you won't go wrong with the 200.

- It comes with a comprehensive hard-copy user manual (yes, printed on real paper -- not a CD or web address).
- The battery is upgradeable.

Cons:
- Yes, battery life and speakers suck. Use the high-capacity battery and a pair of headphones.
- The mouse scroll, while it is useful, takes a long time if you use it to scroll down web pages because it moves the pages down slowly
- While the screen brightness key function works well, the audio volume adjustment is annoying to use. It doesn't respond to (function) (up) or (down) very well. hard to describe, but if you get a chance to actually play around with this laptop before you buy it, try the audio up down function and you will know what I'm talking about. What would have been better is a little manual scroll wheel on the side of the computer that would control the system volume.
-Maybe it's my computer, but the battery life status doesn't seem to be completely accurate. It goes up to 99% somewhat fast, and then stays there for another 10-15 minutes before it finally says 100% charged. It's the same with low battery status, where it doesn't fall below 9%. but it does give me a warning message. (But the LED light doesn't start blinking at low battery, like the manual said it would)
- No floppy drive. I guess buying a USB flash drive will do.
- Two usb ports. While it may be sufficient to some, I wish there were more. I guess buying a USB hub will do.
- Too bad there is only space for one pc card slot
- It would have been nicer if the ethernet port was in the back of the notebook so that the cord doesn't bother my left arm, but it's no big deal.
- I hate support programs. They take up space and I feel like I have a bunch of junk programs running every day. I say if you're confident of your computer skills and can take care of the little computer problems yourself, take them out.

Overall: Yes, battery life is bad. If you need more than 2 hours get a new 6-cell one for 100 bucks. Yes, speakers are bad, but what do you expect from a 4 pound laptop? This is cool looking, good performing system without the bulk. Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sweet thin & light design
I've been happy with my old Gateway notebook's performance and stability, so I went to look for a sleeker, better-looking one. I found it in the 200 series. The 1.5GHz 200X looks nice inside and out and is amazingly thin and light. I can easily put it in my backpack (with a neoprene sleeve covering it) and it weighs less than a college textbook. This laptop is fast enough for everything I do on it (burning CDs, Adobe Photoshop, word processing, surfing the net, etc). Although it would've been nice if it was even faster with HT technology, but considering most centrino notebooks out there, 1.5GHz seems pretty fast already. The only comparable notebook in size and looks is the Sony Vaio PCG-Z1A, which costs over $200 more at only 1.3GHz.
Now that I've had it for a while, I've gone to the Gateway's support site to check on drivers. The site contains plenty of downloads for the 200 and decent FAQs. Better still, the site has a section where you can chat in real time with a tech-support rep and avoid telephone wait times.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beauty & Brawn
The 200X has an ultramodern design -- sleek silver case, cool blue keyboard all in a slim lightweight package. Plus is has insides to back it up -- a quick 1.5Ghz Pentium M, DVD drive, 14.1-inch screen and built-in wireless. There are three buttons above the keyboard you can program to launch your favorite applications and a fourth button shines with a blue light when the integrated wireless is activated. Very nice. It also has an extremely comfortable keyboard.
The only bad news was the short battery life. Buy the optional, high-capacity battery. Armed with the new battery, the Gateway 200X lasted nearly 4 hours. With enough juice, this is a great notebook. Easily more for the money than any of the other systems I've looked at in this price range. ... Read more

Amazon Product Description

The Basics
Sporting many of the high-tech innovations and amenities of Gateway's new top-of-the-line PCs but with less power, comparatively mediocre 3D graphics performance and half the memory, the Gateway 420GR Desktop PC is nonetheless a strong midlevel computer that delivers impressive bang for the buck. The unit is suitable for business, home, entertainment and all-purpose environments, though fussy and/or demanding users will probably need to upgrade one or more components relevant to their chosen applications and requirements. But even without upgrades, the Gateway 420GR is both ready for the future and nicely equipped for the vast majority of duties today.

Processor
At the heart of any computer lies the CPU (or processor), a massive collection of miniature transistors that governs the speed and power of the entire unit. The Gateway 420GR features a fast Intel Pentium 4 515 CPU. New for 2004, this is an upgraded version of the venerable Pentium 4 chip, featuring one full MB of Level 2 cache for a more generous data "pipeline" than prior models. Operating at a 2.93 GHz and of course sporting Intel's Hyper-Threading technology (Hyper-Threading allows a single CPU system to behave at times as a dual CPU system, thus adding substantially more speed to some high-end applications), this is a strong processor in all but the toughest situations.

Memory
Computers typically store information on their hard drive, but they keep frequently and recently accessed data in Random Access Memory (RAM) for faster retrieval. More RAM means more efficient computing, superior multitasking and less strain on your hard drive. For the 420GR, Gateway has installed 512 MB of speedy 400 MHz DDR memory, configured in a dual channel setup for even faster response. This is a typical allotment for a midlevel computer, and more than enough for most multitasking situations and complex applications. Moreover, the system's mainboard is constructed to support RAM upgrades to a stunning 4 GB, though most users will never need to do so.

Video
CPU's are usually so busy doing basic calculations that they need help translating visual output to the viewing screen. This is the duty of the graphics card (or graphics controller). A graphics controller with "dedicated" video memory is preferable to a controller that "shares" the system's main memory, as it will better handle complex procedures.

The Gateway 420GR features a new style of video controller -- a sort of hybrid between high-end standalone "dedicated memory" cards and less impressive integrated "shared memory" controllers. It's called the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900, a module that is indeed integrated on the motherboard but features more refined components than traditional integrated controllers. However, though some variations of the Graphics Media Accelerator 900 can utilize up to 224 MB or more of the system's memory, thus generating better 3D performance, this particular controller is unable to use more than 64 MB. As a result, anyone seriously involved in 3D gaming or 3D graphic design will undoubtedly need to add a standalone graphics card. But if you're usually involved in 2D and/or undemanding 3D work, the system will suffice nicely as is.

Display:
Gateway has not included a display screen, thus allowing you to continue using your current monitor or select from today's many alternatives.

Sound
The Gateway 420GR produces stereo and surround sound via an Intel High Definition Audio chipset with support for six distinct audio channels and one subwoofer. Gateway has also enclosed a pair of amplified desktop speakers, though serious audiophiles will undoubtedly upgrade to a three-piece subwoofer-enhanced set or a surround sound configuration.

Hard Drive
At 160 GB, the unit's internal hard drive is substantially less roomy and costly than today's latest high-end monsters yet spacious enough for a massive allotment of files and applications and a comprehensive music, video/photo and multimedia library too. Furthermore, this particular hard drive is exceptionally quick -- sporting a fast 7200-RPM speed, an 8 MB buffer, and a high-speed Serial ATA connection. These are all comparatively recent innovations, each increasing the overall performance of the system.

Optical Drive
An optical drive is essential in today's computing world. A "CD-ROM" drive allows you to install CD-based applications and play music CDs. A "CD-RW" drive adds CD "burning", so you can also backup your important files to long-lasting discs and create personalized music CDs. With a DVD-ROM drive you can enjoy all of the above plus watch the same big budget DVD movies you watch on your home entertainment system. And with a DVD-RW drive, you can also "write" home movies to durable discs and archive files to DVD (DVDs boast more than seven times the storage capacity of a CD).

Like its pricier Gateway brethren, this system features two optical drives -- a CD-ROM drive for playing music and data CDs, and a DVD +/- RW Double Layer Multi-Format drive through which you can not only do all of the above but also make use of double layer DVDs (twice the capacity of standard DVDs). What's more, with two optical drives you can make extremely fast CD copies.

Connectivity and Expansion
With a total of seven high-speed USB 2.0 ports, you'll have plenty of room for plug and play gadgets such as digital cameras and printers. Gateway has also included a trio of IEEE 1394 "FireWire" ports (commonly used for fast data transfer from digital camcorders) and a versatile 8-in-1 card reader for reading memory cards from devices such as digital cameras, PDAs and more. Communication options include an integrated 10/100Mbps Ethernet LAN interface for high-speed access to networks and the Internet, and a 56K data/fax modem for low-speed dial-up connections.

Operating System and Software
The Gateway 420GR features a comprehensive software package headed by Microsoft's beefy Windows XP Home Edition operating system. Gateway will also pre-install Microsoft's Money 2004 financial center, Microsoft's Works 8.0 productivity package, Microsoft's Picture It! Premium photo and graphic editing suite, and a variety of sophisticated multimedia utilities such as the excellent Nero 6 Suite CD and DVD burning package.

Control
Completing the system is a Gateway Premium Multimedia Keyboard and a two-button mouse with scroll wheel. ... Read more
